I was wondering when the anti's would find this.

I could be wrong, but as far as I am aware, there is no way in Georgia to have your name removed from GCIC for involuntary commitment other than what this bill proposes to eliminate.

Unless there is some generic ad-hoc method a probate judge would come up with to remove the record.

So that proposal needs to be amended and then passed. The amendment would make it clear that once you were released from involuntary committment your name was removed from the GCIC and NICS prohibition list.

That would be a great way to make this bill work proper.

Gov. Deal signed this into law today.

https://gov.georgia.gov/documents/sb-304-0

ETA: This bill ended up not being anything like the original bill as written. More to do with:
relating to
2 general provisions for law enforcement officers and agencies, so as to provide requirements
3 for submitting certain evidence collected from a forensic medical examination to the Georgia
4 Bureau of Investigation; to provide for definitions; to provide for procedure; to provide for
5 reporting; to provide for a short title; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting
6 laws; and for other purposes.

The "as passed" (AP) version of SB 304 isn't the same as what is linked in the original post here in this thread.

The link above has a SB 304 that is called the "Compassionate Care for Victims of Sexual Assault Act" and it has to do with evidence collected in sexual assault cases. The goal is to make sure that evidence is reviewed by law enforcement for possible use in a criminal proceeding against the offender, and not just discarded or ignored for whatever reason.

I don't see any connection to guns, gun control, self-defense, GWL qualifications, or anything similar in this bill -- as passed.

Would somebody please take a stab at summarizing what SB 304 does? I guess since it is becoming law we need to know.
It was completely changed from the original bill from what I read. It now has to do with:
This Act shall be known and may be cited as the "Compassionate Care for Victims of Sexual Assault Act."
