    Ignorance of the law!!!!!

    I just wanted to share this and get your reactions. I carry my gun everywhere I go except where prohibited. My dad's friend just got his permit and also took a 5 hour class to get his bounty hunter license (so now he's an expert). He open carries first of all, but he takes it off everytime he goes into a store or anywhere but someones home. My brother was over there the other day and told him that I carry mine all the time and the guy told my brother that I wasn't suppose to. He says he read the law and he knows that you can't carry in public. Now I have to print out the law and educate this guy. It kinda made me mad because in a sense he's telling them that I'm breaking the law and I pride myself in always doing the right thing. Has anyone ever run into someone like this? How did you handle it? What's the best way to educate him on carry laws and his rights to defend himself? If he doesn't know where he can carry then I'm sure he doesn't know his rights to use deadly force. It's kinda scary that people get their permit and don't research the laws.

    Your brother should shut his pie hole about when and where you carry a weapon. It is none of his business and nobody's business.

    Your dad's friend is a fool best avoided.

    You do not have to print out the law and educate anyone. So long as you know what the limits are in Georgia, who cares what anyone else thinks?

    Once thing you'll learn real fast is that there is certain amount of people with permits, certificates, badges and tinsell that have no idea about the law. That is why I love this forum, you will have 17 people posting answers and even then the main advice is to talk with a lawyer/LEO/Court official that works in your area before taking any action.

    Most people like this won't believe you when you tell the what the law actually is.......they will still think they're right.

    The best approach would be to keep a print out of the applicable law & give it to the malcontent to read for himself....it's hard to argue when it's in writing!

    Reminds of the King of the hill episode, where Dale takes a 3 hr class to get bounty hunter certificate and hat. Perhaps better to ignore the guy and not inform him of the law.
    He sounds like he is better off not carrying anyway.

    Now THAT is solid advice

    Try to help him out, he needs to be educated before he does something stupid and gets his self locked up or causes trouble for someone carring legally. Then again...... maybe he's better off without a permit.

    Reading is highly overrated anyway...So few take the time to read what it actually says, always I heard this or that. Smile, nod and move on.
    I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..

    the best way to treat people like this is with calm, logical debate. if they cannot be calm nor logical, it lets you know that further discussion will be wasting your time. it also has the added effect discrediting anything further they say.
