U.S. Governor Allows Constitutional Carry

(RoyalPatriot.com )- Georgia became the 25th constitutional carry state in the Union when Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed legislation on Tuesday.
To put it another way, half of the states in the United States now have constitutional carry.
Kemp signed the bill and said this ensures that law-abiding Georgians, including our daughters and your family, may also protect themselves without the state government’s approval. We have that privilege because of the United States Constitution, not the government.
Kemp made it plain in the run-up to signing the bill that Georgians’ carry permit is the Second Amendment.
The other 24 constitutional carry states are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Legislators passed “Constitutional Carry” on April 1, but Governor Kemp signed the bill Tuesday. The new law allows Georgians to carry a firearm in public without a permit.
Currently, you need a permit, which means you must pass a background check if you want to carry a gun outside of your home. Now, that requirement goes away. Opponents of the bill believe that it will result in more guns on the streets.
The law does not apply to people barred from gun ownership for other reasons, such as minors and convicted felons. It still bans guns in airports and secured government buildings. Controversial permitless carry laws have gained momentum during several states’ legislative sessions.
Law enforcement officials and advocacy groups have been sounding the alarm about the policy’s safety risks. Kemp says permit-less carry is another of several steps he’s taken to tamp down crime, citing legislation he’s pushed. Since the bill did not end the gun licensing process, the Council of Probate Court Judges of Georgia’s executive director says the permit still has a purpose.
Constitutional carry is straightforward. It respects the right of a law-abiding adult who is lawfully permitted to carry a concealed handgun without seeking permission from the government. This assures citizens’ right to self-defense is unencumbered by government red tape or delays. Furthermore, this bill preserves the existing concealed handgun licensing system, allowing people to get a permit, which may be required while carrying a pistol in other jurisdictions.
