HB 89 has been introduced into the Georgia State Legislature.
Like similar bills introduced in Oklahoma, Arizona, Michigan, Indiana, and elsewhere, HB89 states, “A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Georgia and that remains within the borders of Georgia shall not be subject to federal law or regulation, including registration, under the authority of Congress to regulate interstate commerce.”
HB89 continues, “It is declared by the General Assembly that those items have not traveled in interstate commerce. This Code section shall apply to a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured in Georgia from basic materials and that can be manufactured without the inclusion of any significant parts imported from another state…A firearm manufactured or sold in Georgia under this part shall have the words ‘Made in Georgia’ clearly stamped on a central metallic part, such as the receiver or frame.”
Georgia is just one of many states introducing this type of legislation due to a growing understanding of the 10th Amendment. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Georgia legislators, just like many others, recognize they are duty bound to disobey the federal government’s unconstitutional acts infringing on the Second Amendment.
