Update: February 26, 2016
As we expected, HB 859 (guns on campus), passed the House and is now in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Clearly, there are many members of the General Assembly who are not recognizing the strong opposition expressed by students, faculty, and higher education officials, all of whom know that allowing guns on campus, and in the hands of carriers with limited or no firearms training, would endanger our campus communities across Georgia.
MAKE A PHONE CALL TODAY TO LT. GOV. CAGLE (404) 656-5030
- Tell the staffer that you want the Lt. Gov NOT to move HB 859 (guns on campus) forward for a vote.
Together, we can defeat HB 859, as we have done with similar bills in Florida over the last two years. Please stay with us for continued updates and suggested actions you can take to help protect Georgia’s campus communities.
