    CCW questions for Georgia members

    I went over to Georgiapacking.org and didn't see this listed so I though I'd ask. I'm going to be taking a trip to GA in July and will be visiting Stone mountain state park and was wondering if it is legal to CCW there under Georgia law? Also I noticed that its listed highway rest stop buildings,as off limits. But what about my just stopping on the rest stop property is this legal?


    So if I have to enter the rest stop building to use the rest room do I need to secure my weapon in my vehicle? Also I'll be carrying on my Florida resident permit under reciprocity if this matters at all,thanks for any help guys.

    It has been quite a while since I have been to Stone Mountain. You can carry everywhere except the Laser Show, it being a public gathering.

    Stone Mountain park is legal to carry at since it is a state park and all building in the park are legal to carry inside....if you're going in july theres a good chance the Public Gathering Clause int he law will be eliminated...we will find out by the 8th of June

    The relevant current ordinance for carrying a firearm in Stone Mountain Park here.

    It used to be that you had to alert park security of you carrying up until September of 2009. Now the only requirement is that you have a permit. The laser show is currently off-limits as it is a public gathering, but that may change before July of this year (2010) if/when SB308 is signed by our Governor.

    I would also highly recommend to you GeorgiaCarry.com (they actually sued Stone Mountain on its firearm ban and won back in 2008.) Here is all the relevant info on that win for the 2A activists of Georgia.

    You know, ordnance and ordinance are two words whose meanings are too easily confused on a forum about firearms.

    Here's a link to a GPO discussion on the subject of rest areas/stops:
    Firearm Discussion • View topic - Rest stops.

    Rest stops=no carry

    I hope we get the 'illegal' removed soon from our laws WRT rest areas. I'd stick to well lit truck stops/gas stations........ and Mickey-D's.

    Interstate rest areas are one of the places, all over our country, that I feel one needs to carry at.

    Enjoy yout trip!
