GSSA's 1st Principle
GSSA believes that government must not infringe on the
fundamental right of individual citizens to choose to keep and bear
arms for a variety of reasons; including hunting, collecting,
competitive shooting, recreation, historical re-enactment and
GSSA acts in defense, support and furtherance of this belief.
GSSA maintains a full time presence at the capitol during the
Georgia legislative session, keeping a vigil eye on the protection of
your Second Amendment rights and pursuing continued enactment
of pro-gun legislation in Georgia.
