To be delivered to The NRA, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal and the Georgia state legislature

Petition Statement

Because you passed HB 60, it is now legal in Georgia to stalk a children’s baseball game with a gun. The Sheriff in Forsyth County could not do anything to stop this menacing behavior, and the gun owner knew that the law couldn’t stop him.
There are currently 5,823 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

A man carrying a gun stalked a children’s baseball game in Forsyth County, Georgia this week. Over twenty 911 calls were made, mostly by parents fearing for the safety of their children.

But the sheriff said they could do nothing, and the man knew that too.

Georgia just passed HB 60—the “Guns Everywhere Bill”—which allows owners to carry their guns in public places like restaurants, churches, bars, schools, libraries, youth centers and sports arenas. The police weren’t even allowed to stop him just to ask if he had a license.
