Among those speaking in favor of the bill was Patrick Parsons, executive director of Georgia Gun Owners.  A portion of Parsons' comments can be heard here.

Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills spoke in opposition, saying the Georgia Sheriffs Association membership took a vote that also reflects opposition. A portion of Sills' comments can be heard here.

No vote was taken at today's session, which had been advertised as a hearing.

The portion of today's committee hearing dealing with Constitutional Carry ran about 21 minutes. Audio from the entire segment can be heard here.
