Georgia: Guns in spotlight at Legislature
The House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee, meanwhile, will meet at 3 p.m. for a closer look at Senate Bill 101. The proposal would keep the names and personal details of gun owners licensed to carry a weapon in Georgia secret, and it would prohibit local officials from banning guns in public housing unless required by federal law or regulation.The bill would also get Georgia out of the business of licensing gun dealers. Out of state gun owners with permission to carry guns at home would be allowed to carry guns here. And it would lower to 18 the state's prohibition on anyone under the age of 21 from carrying a gun, but only for military service members who have completed basic training.
