Georgians Against Campus Carry
This petition had 8,307 supporters
Nathan Deal has signed House Bill 280, which allows anyone 21 or older with a weapons license to carry a gun anywhere on a public college or university campus, except inside dormitories, fraternities and sorority houses, daycare facilities, and at athletic events.
HB 280 Was Signed. Now What?
The Georgia Board of Regents controls the implementation of Georgia university policy, so it is now up to them to decide on the policy that universities will enact in response to the passing of this bill. HB 280 has many flaws and its implementation is so flawed that it is frowned upon by those on both sides of the issue. It is imperative that we contact the Board of Regents with our concerns and to voice our opinion that we believe that this law is too flawed to implement while also preserving the safety needs of our college campuses and surrounding communities.
Calls to action:
Write the board of regents, their correspondence addresses can be found here: http://www.usg.edu/regents/members
Attend the May 16, 2017 Board of Regents meeting in the Atlanta Office:
270 Washington Street, SW
Atlanta, GA 30334
Note: The meeting is open to the public, but no comments/concerns will be taken during the meeting.
Call the Board of Regents at 404-962-3049 and voice your concerns as a student, parent, faculty member, staff, community member, Georgian, etc. for the implementation of HB 280.
Write letters/emails to Georgia university administrators; presidents, provosts, and deans of students. (cc the Board of regents members).
Please Join me in Opposition to HB 280
Special Thanks to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Evan Gillon, and Ayo Aladesanmi
