Firearms Law Study Committee kicks off August 12

State Sen. Mitch Seabaugh (R-Sharpsburg) and the members of the Senate Firearms Law Study Committee will hold a meeting in Atlanta at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, August 12, 2008, in Room 450 of the State Capitol. The study panel will meet to take a comprehensive look at Georgia’s complex firearms laws and possible recommendations of new legislation for the 2009 session.

“Ensuring Georgian’s right to protect themselves, as the Constitution provides, is vitally important to the legislature,” said Sen. Seabaugh. “This study committee will help clarify and make positive changes to Georgia’s gun laws, so that citizens can maintain their Constitutional rights and sense of security.”

Created by Senate Resolution 819, the Firearms Law Study Committee will closely examine Georgia’s firearms law and the way these laws are applied in our state. The Committee will be chaired by Sen. Seabaugh, and includes Senators Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock), Don Balfour (R-Snellville) and David Adelman (D-Atlanta). The Committee will make a report of its findings, with proposals for any new legislation by January 31, 2009.
