    With the uproar over the seizure of privately owned firearms in New Orleans under an "emergency powers" statute, do you think the members of the General Assembly might view with more sympathy the following change in the law?


    SECTION 3.

    Code Section 38-3-51 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to the emergency powers of the Governor, is amended by striking paragraph (8) of subsection (d) and inserting in lieu thereof the following:

    "(8) Suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transportation of alcoholic beverages,<strike> firearms,</strike> explosives, and combustibles;<strike>provided, however, that any limitation on firearms under this Code section shall not include an individual firearm owned by a private citizen which was legal and owned by that citizen prior to the declaration of state of emergency or disaster or thereafter acquired in compliance with all applicable laws of this state and the United States;</strike> and".

    The longer they deny it, the harder we will push.
