In a Twitter post Governor Kemp stated: “Now, more than ever, law-abiding Georgians want a strong commitment to the Second Amendment and the right to protect themselves.

Today I announced our push to get Constitutional Carry on the books in Georgia this legislative session. Together, we’ll GET THE JOB DONE!”

Shortly after his Twitter announcement Kemp sent out the following press release:

Governor Kemp to Champion Constitutional Carry in 2022 Legislative Session

Atlanta, GA Today Governor Brian Kemp joined members of the Georgia General Assembly, the National Rifle Association (NRA), GA2A, and the Georgia Hunting and Fishing Federation to announce his support of Constitutional Carry legislation ahead of the 2022 Legislative Session.

“Throughout the last three legislative sessions, we have worked together to toughen penalties for violent crime, crack down on gangs and street racing, and ban the radical ‘Defund the Police’ agenda,” said Governor Kemp. “We’ve made great progress under the Gold Dome, but we know ensuring public safety cannot just come from state government. Building a safer, stronger Georgia starts with Georgians being able to protect themselves and their families.

“In the face of rising crime across the country, law-abiding citizens should have their constitutional rights protected – not undermined. As I said on the campaign trail in 2018, I believe the U.S. Constitution grants our citizens the right to carry a firearm without the approval of government. For law-abiding Georgians, the 2nd Amendment is their carry permit, and I look forward to working with members of the General Assembly to get Constitutional Carry across the finish line this legislative session.”

    I don’t trust Kemp. He’s liable to tell Ralston to kill it and then blame it on him. Vote him out. That’s a common ploy with politicians introduce a bill they know will never get out of committee then at election time say I tried my best but it didn’t get out of committee.
