Thanks for all the input everyone, sorry I wasn't able to respond before I left. Lovely Wedding, Safe Trip (However trafficky) and a good nights sleep ahead of me. Best of all, everyone is safely home.
p.s. No offense, but I hate carrying in Georgia. Good to be back in Tennessee!

Good Lord. With the complete vague nature of the GA carry laws I am now more pleased than ever to have not taken the job in Atlanta.
I do have to say though, it surely is a nicer city that Memphis is.
SB308 as passed by a wide margin in the GA Senate would rid us of Public Gathering. There's a meeting on it in the House Seltzer Judiciary Subcommittee this Wednesday (4-14-10) at 2:00pm in Room 403CAP at the Atlanta Capitol building (206 Washington Street). It has already had one meeting by the House Seltzer Judiciary Subcommittee, but the bill as presented did not represent the bill as passed by the house. I encourage anyone who can attend to do so and give your input.
When you say don't carry at a sporting event, does that mean professional and school only. We will be in Georgia this summer for a baseball tournament my son plays in (world wood bat). It is in East Cobb area. Since this is not a school event or professional, can one carry there?
BTW, SB308 finally passed Subcomitte yesterday with only a few changes. Mainly private schools got the same rights as public schools.
A lot of amendments were attempted to be added to the bill, but failed. These included restricting the airport again and adding the 1000ft buffer zone restriction,etc.
However, it passed by a single person margin (5-4). This goes to show that we should not let our guard down and should stay in contact with our representatives about this letting them know how we feel.
This bill goes to full committee now, and if passed then on to House Rules and then on to the House for a vote. As long as there are no major changes, we may get this bill to the Governor this year. Any big changes and it may get held up heading back to the Senate. Stay on your representatives and let them know you want this passed without any major changes.
