Fl v GA Carry Differences? After viewing helpful websites...
I know that this question has been beaten to death, which is why I did research before asking it. I took a look at Handgunlaw.us as well as GeorgiaCarry.org and GeorgiaPacking.org. I am making a weekend trip up there this weekend to watch a buddy of mine get married and I was trying to figure out the main differences between carrying in GA and carrying here in FL. After viewing the websites, the only thing I can gather is that in GA I can not carry a pistol into a church, but that open carry is legal. Am I correct in this? I didn't think that these 2 states were that closely similar in laws, I also thought I read that you could protect from a forcible misdemeanor as well? Thank you for your clarification. :smile:
If these are the exceptions, can we store a gun in the console or glove compartment (like in FL) while at a rest stop?
