Marta is actively seeking to have Governor Perdue veto HB89. Please continue to call the Governor and even MARTA to voice your support of this legislation.

Methods To Use

Web Form E-Mail: http://gov.georgia.gov/00/gov/contac...820188,00.html

Snail Mail (USPS):
The Office of the Governor
State of Georgia
203 State Capitol
Atlanta, Georgia 30334

Phone:
404-656-1776

Fax:
404-657-7332

A CALL FOR ACTION!





The General Assembly passed House Bill 89, which authorizes the carrying of concealed firearms on public transit, in restaurants that serve alcohol, all parks, allows for firearms to be located anywhere in a vehicle, arms constables in courthouses, shortens the timeframe for Probate Judges to issue concealed weapons permits, and removes prohibitions on allowing firearms in employee parking lots unless the employer specifically objects. The final version of HB 89 has the effect of authorizing concealed carry permit holders to defend others in public places.



HB 89 awaits the signature of the Governor. MARTA has been working in conjunction with other concerned organizations on some activities which we hope will persuade Governor Perdue to VETO HB 89.



The Governor's VETO is the only way to stop this legislation



Please act TODAY and help urge the Governor to VETO HB 89 by:



Call the Governor's Office at 404/656-1776. Tell the person who answers that you are calling to ask the Governor to veto HB 89. Ask if the person taking the message wants your name and phone number. If you are a member of an organization which opposes the bill, let them know that.
Forward this notification to: -- friends, church members, and organizations you belong to. Ask them to call the Governorís Office (404 656-1776) as well. There are many other cities in Georgia that have public transit -- bus service. Encourage your contacts to call from outside the metro Atlanta area.
Write a letter from your organization requesting a veto of HB 89. Key points are below.
Get your organization to sign on to a letter that other organizations are preparing in opposition of HB 89.
Write articles or letters to the editor in local publications -- neighborhood newspapers, church bulletins, organization newsletters, etc. (Editorials are coming out in newspapers across the state in opposition to the bill.)


Key Points:

Impact on Public Transit and the Environment

Public transit is a priceless asset to any community. Guns on buses and trains in the hands of anyone but law enforcement is a safety and security issue.
Law enforcement officers are trained to assess the risk of firing their service weapon on a bus or train. Anyone else with a gun, even with good intentions, could likely injure or even kill innocent passengers.
If an operator is injured, the safety of all of the passengers is jeopardized. In the case of a bus operator, other motorists and pedestrians would be at serious risk. Buses travel the busiest thoroughfares in every community that provides them.
Buses and trains travel to busy and popular destinations -- Six Flags, the Georgia World Congress Center, shopping malls, Underground, the Airport. People travel on public transit to Falcons and Braves games, and to Phillips Arena to see the Hawks and the Thrashers. These events sell large quantities of alcohol. This is a recipe for tragedy.
How will the additional costs of security on buses and trains impact already cash strapped public transit systems?
Guns on buses and trains will discourage ridership. Reduced ridership will increase traffic gridlock and further reduce air quality.
Impact on the Legislative Process

The public transit and restaurant portions of HB 89 never went through the committee process in either the Senate or the House. There was no public comment, no testimony, and no open discussion of the merits of the language or opportunity for committee members with issue expertise to consider the consequences of the language. The language was a part of HB 915 which never had a hearing in any committee.
The authors of two resolutions to create comprehensive firearms study committees in the Senate and the House (SR 819 and HR 1305) pledged to look carefully and objectively at all Georgia firearms statutes and that all points of view would be considered. The study committees were supported by Georgians for Gun Safety in an effort to create a rational discussion. HB 89 contradicts that more prudent course.

This was copied from another forum that I visit........

Quote:
Mayor Frankin with a host of others held a "MUST VETO" conference at Atlanta City Hall...

I would go into more detail but I think you can guess their arguments for not wanting this or that about the bill.

We must call, call, call, call, call post this protest.

Now or never folks...

Everyone please make it a point to CALL and EMAIL TODAY!!!!

Thanks,

Robert

After asking him to pass a request to the Governor to sign HB89 into law, I gave my usual thanks for taking what must be one of a great many calls. Instead of the usual (surprised) "you're welcome," this gentleman's comment was, "Actually, I haven't gotten many."




Help!
