    It's hard to believe it has been 10 years. The mountain we finally got over.

    Gov. Perdue Signs HB 89
    At approximately 3 p.m. on May 14, 2008, Gov. Sonny Perdue signed HB 89 into law. The bill, sponsored and advocated by GCO, is the most important pro-gun legislation in the history of Georgia. When the bill takes effect on July 1, 2008, it no longer will be a separate crime, for people with firearms licenses to carry a firearm into a restaurant that serves alcohol, on public transportation, or in state parks. The bill also relaxes car carry restrictions for people eligible for firearms licenses and tightens the time frames for issuance of firearms licenses by probate judges.

    Lots of change for the better has happened in the last 10-15 years. Back then, Georgia carry laws were absolutely horrible. Now, they are pretty danged good. Thanks to GCO - the best $20 a Georgia gun owner can spend.
