    Should we have a link on the home page called "Bills" with links to gun related bills actually pending in the General Assembly? People could still comment upon therm and post them in the forums, but it seems to me that they should have more prominence on the web site.

    I agree with you on that, you either have to continually go to the states site to check on them and dig up the bill numbers. It can be a real pain :cry: in the neck...

    HB 544

    HB 544 should get ber950's attention. If Gwinnett's ordinance were legal, there would be no need to propose such a law.

    I have an idea. How about I put a "bills" in the menu and put links to both the senate and house report cards and the links to the active bills?

    At first I was about to gripe about hb 793 until I noticed that it changes it to those convicted of a felony drug conviction instead of the current "an offense". That way people with a misdemeanor drug conviction can get a license.

    HB 793 - limits restriction on obtaining license for drug offenders to felony drug convictions and removes the prohibitions on those who are not adjuticated guilty

    Or something like that . . .[/i]

    HB 793

    I have taken a closer look. As the law stands now, those arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession in their youth can never, ever, ever obtain a firearms license even when they are 65 years old with no other troubles with the law. This is rather odd given that murderers theoretically can obtain a firearms license at some point (through a pardon).

    This bill makes the exception for firearms license eligibility applicable only to those convicted of felony drug offenses, so that misdemeanors (Mr. Meaners) will no longer be disabling.

    As the law stands now, it could be construed to never allow a license to issue to someone convicted of a drug offense even if his conviction is overturned on appeal or for some other reason.

    This bill allows any exoneration provided by law to remove the disability.

    Sorry I was not as thorough previously.
