State Sen. Brandon Beach, R-Alpharetta, wants to get tough on gun violence in Georgia. Monday, Beach introduced Senate Bill 7, also known as the “3G” bill or the “Gangs, Guns, Gone” bill which imposes a 10 year mandatory minimum sentence for anyone who uses a gun while committing or attempting to commit a violent felony.
The new legislation would require that this mandatory minimum sentence is given any time charges are brought against an individual who has used a gun to commit or attempt to commit a violent felony, whether or not the weapon was discharged.
