ATLANTA —State leaders are considering a bill to allow law-abiding citizens to carry a gun without a permit.
“To protect our Second Amendment rights is to remove all barriers," said the man behind the bill, state Rep. Jason Spencer.
Spencer, of Kennesaw, is sponsoring House Bill 679 -- also known as the Constitutional Carry Act. It would allow law-abiding adults in Georgia to carry a gun without a permit, openly or concealed.
According to the bill’s supporters, 17,000 people have signed a petition to get it passed.
