along with being illegal, it makes it safer for the criminals. someone needs to challenge them in court. I wonder if the ACLU would get involved since its an infringement of civil liberties
oh god I can't breath
Dude, in GA it's already illegal to carry at sporting events and on public property. They're not banning anything that's not already banned. However, they are not allowed to regulate the manner in which firearms are purchased or borne in the state of GA.
It is not illegal to carry on public property. It is illegal to carry in publicly owned or operated buildings.
A small but important distinction.
Ah. I stand corrected.
Or "public gatherings"... Hmmm.....
So the georgiacarry guys are fighting the illegal 120+ day waits for permits in Cowetta, now we got this crap. This has gotta stop.
There is a state maximum wait for carry permit applications. My fiancee got hers back in 31 days.
Yes, it is 60 days by law. Unfortunately, noone really abides by this and there is an active lawsuit against Cowetta county for a plaintiff that had his registration take at least 125 days, iirc. Check out GeorgiaCarry.org
That's the problem. Most counties are taking quite a bit longer than the 60 day limit to get GFLs issued. Cobb took 98 for mine. One man is currently suing Coweta County in the GA state court of appeals for taking 125 days.
You can read up on what's being done at www.GeorgiaCarry.Org
I wonder if the NRA will get involved.
Many of us have contacted them on the 60-day issue. They don't seem to care.
As for the ACLU, the 2nd is the only amendment that they choose to ignore.
Wow, my Coweta County carry permit only took 30-40 days.
I somewhat understand their aim is to have better standing for prosecuting people carrying illegally around sporting events or whatever but I still will never uncerstand the idea that reducing the number of legally armed citizens will help the situation in any way at all....
I wish I still lived there, I would def attend the meeting.
