    Ugh! My wife and I waited over 90 days early this year for ours and I thought that was a bit ridiculous. That's in Cobb county where the city of Woodstock is who have that wonderful law "requiring" homeowners to own a gun (though it's never enforced). I don't know the best way to issue permits, but I don't see why not let law abiding citizens who pass whatever background checks to purchase a gun be allowed to carry one.

    Usually the caution about using generalities as the rule is right, but in point of fact it is a truism that our Judiciary places itself above the rest of us peons!

    The problem with an extremely high percentage of those holding Judicial positions is that they consider themselves "elite", thus we get the sort of activism that involves them legislating and ignoring the concept of power seperation. They really DO hold themselves above the Legislative and Executive branches and therein is the core of the problem.

    It is truly a damned shame that those sorts so dishonor both themselves and our Constitution.

    And I am nearly convinced that anyone holding BAR membership ought to be prohibited from holding public office!

    21 is the federal age to purchase a handgun. I may be wrong on this but I think it only applies to buying from an FFL. State law states that a Private sale can happen when you are 16.

    An YES One can carry starting at age 16 according to state statutes.

Most states have them and these groups will keep you updated of all new proposals both good and bad as well as links to the emails of all your reps so you can voice your opinion. As the member basically said above if we are all silent, we are just as bad as sheep. We need to stay on top of our states gun laws and do everything we can to change them or keep them from being changed. Grass Roots just makes this way to easy to not join.
    We have a grass roots organization working on improving Georgia laws. It was one of their law suits that this decision came down on. They're still doing all they can to better the situation here.

    I thought Woodstock was in Cherokee county, and Kennesaw, (Cobb County) had the ordnance... either way, if I were still a resident of Georgia, you could bet I'd be making some calls to legislators and joining the GeorgiaCarry.ORG. Good luck to ya.

    Now, I'm not so sure that it's as bad as it sounds, though it may take a court case to find out. The fact that they can wait until the background check arrives does not necessarily mean that they can avoid sending for the check. A good attorney (maybe that's an oxymoron) could probably force the issue for you.

    If I lived in GA I think I would be making a trip south to FL to get a Florida CCL. Isn't that honored in GA?

    Thankfully I live in a state that for the most part respects 2nd amendment rights

    You're right. My bad. I'm originally a North Fulton-er so I get mixed up with my west-side counties.

    This is the court case. Appealed all the way to the state supreme court. Supreme court denies cert. so the appeals court ruling stands.

    That's the problem.


    And it's the City of Kennesaw that has that pointless law about heads of households being required to own guns. I think it's silly.
