Georgia House Committee has Unannounced Meeting, Passes Controversial Bill

ATHENS, GA — The Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee of the Georgia House of Representatives passed the Campus Carry Bill in a late addition to their meeting agenda. As a result, gun safety advocate groups were not in attendance to voice their opposition to House Bill 859.

HB 859, also known as the Campus Carry Bill, would allow concealed carry license holders to carry guns on public college and university campuses, not including sporting events, student housing, fraternity or sorority houses.

The bill is currently in Committee action with more committees yet to vote on the controversial bill. More updates as this bill moves through Committee action.
