The National Rife Association is praising Georgia lawmakers for passing HB 60 late Thursday night, which it’s calling “the most comprehensive pro-gun reform bill in state history.”
The NRA-backed bill cleared both chambers with a vote of 112-58 in the House and 37-18 in the Senate.
“This is an historic victory for Second Amendment rights in Georgia,” says Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “House Bill 60 is the most comprehensive pro-gun bill ever passed in Georgia. It ensures that the law is on the side of law-abiding citizens and victims of crime. Among the reforms is a provision extending the right to self-defense to all law-abiding citizens, whether they live in a gated community, or public housing.”
