With bipartisan support, Senate Bill 350 passed in the Georgia Senate by a 49 to 4 vote on Wednesday, March 7.  SB 350 now goes to the state House of Representatives for its consideration.  This important legislation would mandate municipal, county and state police authorities return all seized firearms, not currently being held as evidence in a criminal investigation, to the lawful owner if able.  If the lawful owner is not found or unable to take possession of the firearm, SB 350 would require these agencies sell these firearms at a public auction to licensed firearms dealers.
