    A year ago, senate Bill 224 was filed as a pro gun bill that would make several changes to our laws about weapons and weapons carry. Most of them are pretty small except the first one which decriminalizes carry at church and puts places of worship in the same status as restaurants, shoe stores office buildings, etc. (Not a crime for a GWL holder to have a gun there, but the private property owner can use "criminal trespass" laws to enforce their own rules about weapons.)

    SB 224 has been stuck in the Senate Judiciary Committee for the last year, and it's time for us to lobby to get this out, to pass it out of committee with a favorable recommendation.
    Let all of our representatives in the Georgia General Assembly vote on it.

    Yesterday afternoon The Senate Judiciary committee did hold a hearing on a different law Senate Bill 357, which doesn't do much to advance gun rights.
    SB 357 primarily benefits private schools and churches -- those churches that only want to allow certain people to carry guns but keep the gun ban in place for everybody else, with a criminal penalty available through Georgia's gun laws,
    without the church or school having to invoke the criminal trespass law.

    SB 357 should not be considered a substitute for Senate Bill 224!

    224 is the better bill, especially on the subject of church carry.

    Today the TV news reported that a Senate committee held a hearing
    on a gun carry bill, but they didn't name it.
    That hearing was on #357, not #224.

    The WSB radio idiot Erick Erickson (aka Sir Hiss) just gushingly endorsed this bill as well as HB 767

    Neither of these bills do a thing for Georgia residents.

    357 is no more than Government inserting itself into the affairs of Private Property. Church carry should never have been made illegal in the first place. Carry and possession on private property should be the decision of the property owner. The State has no overriding interest in a Church.

    767 Does nothing to help Georgia residents. Erickson says it punishes "good conservatives from other (certain) states" by not allowing them to carry in Georgia. So what? Maybe those gun owners need to get on their State's politicians about recognizing our GWL.

    Neither of these bills need to be passed.
