The Georgia Legislature has approved the constitutional carry legislation in Georgia, this legisaltion is now in the hands of Georgia governor Brian Kemp and he holds all the cards when it comes to passing it.


Today, the Senate voted 34-22 to concur with the House’s amendments to Senate Bill 319, constitutional carry. It will now go to Governor Brian Kemp, who has previously stated his support for constitutional carry. Georgia is now very close to becoming the 25th constitutional carry state, and the fourth to join that group in 2022.

Constitutional carry recognizes the right of a law-abiding adult who is legally allowed to carry a concealed firearm, to do so without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing concealed handgun license system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so.

NRA thanks Representative Mandi Ballinger, Senator Jason Anavitarte, Speaker David Ralston, Representatives Alan Powell, Rick Jasperse, and J. Collins, Senate President Pro Tempore Butch Miller, Senator Brian Strickland, all the cosponsors in each chamber, and GA2A for their hard work making this victory possible.
