Knife Rights supported Georgia HB 903, the Second Amendment Restoration and Protection Act, has been introduced to enact Constitutional Carry in the Peach State. HB 903 would eliminate the existing 12-inch limit on carry of knives without a concealed carry permit. Governor Kemp has said he will sign a Constitutional Carry bill if passed.
We are pleased to be working with our friends at GeorgiaCarry.org to get this bill passed. We will let you know when it is time to contact your legislators to move HB 903 forward.
In 2012 Knife Rights passed Knife Law Preemption in Georgia, voiding local ordinances more restrictive than state law. That included Atlanta’s ban on switchblades, which technically affected exhibitors and attendees at BLADE Show. In 2017 we increased the legal carry length for a knife from 5 inches to 12 inches.
