The attorneys, representing several Georgia professors, argued state lawmakers overreached the state’s constitutional boundaries when they passed the controversial bill that Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law. They’ve also argued the law, which allows guns on some parts of campuses, creates a more dangerous environment for students and faculty.

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a full committee mark-up of H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, this Wednesday! It’s therefore more important than ever to urge your member of Congress to support this crucial legislation. Concealed carry reciprocity is the NRA’s highest legislative priority in Congress.

Today, November 22 — the day before Thanksgiving — the California Department of Justice officially notified the public of its intent to adopt a new regulation regarding the definitions of certain terms used to identify “assault weapons” under California law. If adopted, the regulation would take existing definitions of terms relating to “assault weapons” currently being challenged by NRA and CRPA in state court, and apply them to the identification of “assault weapons” pursuant to California law.
