Christopher J. Deraney for State House

Welcome to the website for Christopher J. Deraney for Georgia State House Representative

2nd Amendment 

In a country where certain freedoms and liberties are guaranteed to us, we must bear in mind that ‘with great power comes great responsibility’.

As a gun owner, I am fully supportive of the 2nd Amendment:

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”


In the state of Georgia, I support Constitutional Carry. Any law-abiding citizen, with the exception of the mentally ill and individuals convicted of a violent crime, should have the right to own and carry a gun with no permit mandated from the state of Georgia or other governmental entity, provided a full NCIC background check has been satisfied.

Responsible citizens understand that owning a gun as a means of protection for self and family is a right and that in that right, one must act in accordance with the governing laws. 

As your Representative, I will work to protect your right to protect yourself.
