The Firearms License - Holders Association of Georgia is a grassroots organization intended to educate and organize the citizens of Georgia who are holders of Georgia Firearms Licenses and to communicate their concerns to our elected officials in a unified manner.
This organization came about as
the result of a discussion on thefiringline.com. Georgia Firearms License holders
who were concerned about the state of Georgia's laws regarding the concealed carry
of firearms decided to band together to speak with one voice and to try and make
our right to bear arms more effectual. We don't raise money, we don't have a membership
list, and we don't have lobbyists. What we do have is your voice. This site and this
organization are only here to disseminate information and to act as a point of organization.
It will be up to you to spread the word, contact your representatives, and make a
The organization and the website are a work in progress, and we expect that much will change (including possibly the name?) in the coming months and years. Please feel free to send me your ideas, comments, suggestions, etc. I NEED YOUR INPUT IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS SITE EFFECTUAL! GET ACTIVE AND GET INVOLVED!
Georgia has some of the best statutes in the nation when it comes to concealed carry laws. See O.C.G.A. sections 16-11-126 thru 128. However, as with most things, there is room for improvement. Unfortunately the present legislative session is almost over and it does not look like any of the bills concerning Georgia's concealed carry laws will be passsed this session. Click on the links below to see them.
House Bill 304
House Bill 691
House Bill 533.
House Bill 144.
FLAG's plan at this point is to try and write all the changes proposed in these bills, as well as some other changes, into one comprehensive Act. From time to time there will be new portions posted on this page for your review and input, so keep checking back! If you have any changes in mind that are not in any of the above bills, e-mail me.
The present legislative session is almost over as of this web site update. However, you can stil write in support of any of the above bills, just make sure to write again when they are up for a vote! Also, let your representatives know about this website! Find out how to contact your representatives with the Georgia Poll Locator in "links" below then write them. Remember, you are their boss.
click here for a pre-written message about HB 304 to get you started. You can change it around to have it relate to any of the bills above, or all of them. Of course, you can write whatever you want, but this form should get you started.
This is where I will keep a list of state legislators who are for us and of those who are against us. I will need your input for this: send me the name, address, district, what counties the district contains, and what specifically the legislator has done that is pro or anti self defense.
Representative Waren Massey, Georgia House of Representatives, District 086, Barrow County.
Waren Massey was a co-sponsor of every bill mentioned up above. He is one of the people fighting hardest for sensible gun laws. He also faces a challenge in the upcoming primary from a 14 year Democrat who just announced he would run as a Republican. (Note - FLAG does not endorse any particular party).
You do not have to be a resident of Warren's district to contribute to his campaign, and he is fighting for the rights of all Georgians. If he should lose his seat, gun owners in all of Georgia will lose a friend in the House.
Campaign contributions are limited to $2000.00 and the contributor must be identifiable - name, address, occupation. Send contributions to Warren's campaign at:
As we all know, the only thing that rivals your vote for the most powerful of your possessions is your money. Most of us have heard of and many of us seen businesses which have signs posted that state that they do not allow concealed weapons on their premises. If you know of a business that does this, send me the name, location, and as much contact info as you can get on the business. I will verify that this is indeed their policy and post the business right here, along with contact info so that you can express your displeasure with them and let them know how much money you won't be spending there!

I have received several of these, and am still in the process of confirming them. They will be posted as they are confirmed.
You can help spread the word about FLAG. If you send me your e-mail address (your info will be kept strictly confidential) I will e-mail you a JPEG file of business card size flyers that look like this. You can then paste the JPEG into your word processor, print out a sheet of these, take them to a copy shop, copy them on some thick paper, cut them out, and distribute them. Yeah, I know it sounds like a lot of work, but remember, FLAG collects no money and, therefore, has to rely on you guys to spread the word. If the JPEG does not work, let me know and I will snail mail you a sheet (again, your address will be kept strictly confidential).
I would like to have these at every gun show, so help FLAG and yourself out and help spread the word. That's what "grassroots" is all about!
I'd like to expand the content of this site to cover all aspects of handgun ownership (expect a name change soon!), but I need your help for that. I'd like to have people contribute articles about whatever aspect of handgun ownership they are interested in and knowledgeable about - it's wide open!
e-mail me if you are interested.
send me your links! Or report dead ones to me.
