But for me personally I'd rather just conceal carry so I can avoid this type of shit. http://www.georgiacarry.com/county/paulding_carry/Woodard_complaint.pdf Cliffs dude with a GFL (Georgia concealed carry license) is arrested for open carrying, even though it's legal to do so in Georgia. On May 12, 2008, at approximately 6 p.m., Plaintiff Woodard was at Scott’s convenience store on Highway 101 outside Temple, Paulding County, Georgia. Plaintiff Woodard purchased a series of lottery tickets at Scott’s convenience store, returned to his vehicle in the parking lot of Scott’s to scratch off the tickets, and returned to Scott’s to redeem winning tickets for more tickets. On May 12, 2008, Plaintiff Woodard had in his possession a valid Georgia firearms license (“GFL”) issued pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 16-11-129. At the time of the incident described in this Complaint, Plaintiff Woodard was openly carrying a firearm in the waistband of his pants, and Plaintiff Woodard was not wearing a shirt or other garment concealing the firearm. While Plaintiff Woodard was at Scott’s convenience store, Defendants Brown and Payne received a dispatch of a “man with a gun” at Scott’s. When Plaintiff Woodard finished his lottery ticket purchases, he got in his car and began driving out of the parking lot of the convenience store. In response to the dispatch, Defendant Brown activated the blue lights of the marked sheriff’s department patrol car he was driving. Plaintiff Woodard stopped, and Defendant Brown ordered Plaintiff Woodard to hold his hands outside the car window.
