As all of us have seen over the last few days, the left-wing gun-grabbers are on the march across the country, and they're already talking about restricting our gun rights.

Here in Georgia, Georgia Gun Owners is taking a pro-active approach to our Second Amendment rights. We're fighting back and working at the State Capitol to advance your gun rights, not further restrict them.

One newly-elected legislator is taking action -- to make sure gun owners in Georgia have more freedom to defend themselves and their families than in any other state in the country.

Yesterday, State Representative-elect Charles Gregory (R-34) pre-filed four pro-gun bills you should know about.

As you may remember, Charles Gregory is a member of Georgia Gun Owners and hails from the hometown of our headquarters, Kennesaw.

In July, he ran for State Representative in the Republican primary against one of Georgia's most anti-Second Amendment legislators, State Representative Judy Manning.

As a 16-year elected official, most across the state believed Manning was just flat-out unbeatable.

Gregory made the key focus of his campaign our Second Amendment rights.

Manning dug in and stated in writing on her Georgia Gun Owners Candidate Survey that she was opposed to at least one bill Gregory pre-filed at the State Capitol yesterday, "Constitutional Carry."

Georgia Gun Owners blanketed the district with direct mail, informing voters of Manning's anti-gun record, and on election day, she went down to defeat 57%-43%.

Gun owners in Georgia should take heart that an anti-gun Republican is no longer in office, and should now ready for a fight to advance our gun rights at the State Capitol in Atlanta.

Here are the four bills Representative-elect Gregory introduced yesterday:

1. HB 26: The Georgia Constitutional Carry Act of 2013: if passed, this bill would restore to gun owners the ability to carry a firearm open or concealed without having to ask government for permission to do so. It would leave the current Georgia Weapons Carry License in place, but make it optional and not mandatory.

2. HB 27: Restoring Gun Rights During State of Emergency Act of 2013: if passed, this bill would take away the power from the Governor of the State of Georgia from confiscating firearms during a declared state of emergency.

3. HB 28: Restoring Private Property Rights for Places of Worship Act of 2013: if passed, this bill would strike from Georgia law the provision preventing individuals from carrying a firearm in places of worship; private property rights will be protected (a place of worship could decide for itself, which current state law prevents it from doing so).

4. HB 29: Georgia Campus Carry Act of 2013: if passed, this bill would strike from Georgia law the provision preventing individuals who are legally able to carry on post-secondary campuses across the state.

Our gun rights are the in the cross hairs. They always will be.

Gun owners in Georgia have a long way to go before we get back the right to defend ourselves without government permission and eliminate thousands of government-authorized Criminal Safezones throughout the state.

With the 2013 legislative session set to reconvene in less than a month, Georgia Gun Owners urges you to contact your legislators and politely but firmly ask them to publicly support, call for a roll-call vote and vote for the above listed bills.

For freedom,
D.R. Leonard

Yea, baby! I want to see all those college kids packing. Just what we need to increase safety on our campuses. And let's let anybody carry a concealed weapon without having to submit to a background check. I feel safer just thinking about the possibilities.

You know, Mr. Gregory sounds like a one trick pony. Wonder what he proposes to deal with Georgia's financial problems, ethical issues with our elected officials, and flat out dismal educational system?

Now is not the time to be pushing this type of legislation even at the state level. My hope is that we will not promote these 'knee-jerk' type of reactions and that we all can find some middle ground.

This is written in response to the Adam Lanza murder of innocent children and adults.

We have gun laws in effect and they work. Adam Lanza was not old enough to buy the guns he had. He murdered his mother and stole her guns. He was a sociopath (a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience). The gun is not the problem. The issue is the mental state of so many people today. These deranged people are capable of killing without a gun. Forget guns and concentrate on the morality of our country.
