Campus Carry Legislation is Moving. The state House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee on Tuesday passed House Bill 859, sponsored by Rep. Rick Jasperse, R-Jasper, on a 10-3 vote. The bill amends restrictions in state law that prohibit law-abiding Georgia Weapons License (GWL) holders from being able to protect themselves on college and university campuses.

HB 859 would allow law-abiding GWL holders to carry when he or she is in or on any building or real property owned by or leased to any public technical school, vocational school, college, university, or other institution of postsecondary education. It now goes to the Rules Committee where observers believe it will get a favorable vote and soon go to the House floor for an up-or-down vote.
