    Stupid Georgia Gun Laws Almost Enabled Mass Shooting Last Week

    Defensive Carry Brothers and Sister,

    I just posted a story you all might enjoy.

    http://www.freespeech.com/?p=554

    Unfortunately, the law here in Georgia states that Georgia Firearms License holders are NOT allowed to carry their concealed weapons into any restaurant that serves alcohol on the premise. Luckily, one patron at a local place in Norcross chose to disobey that provision and carry his weapon with him while out on the town with friends this past week, and stopped a possible mass shooting from occurring.



    Please help me spread the word about this story so we can try to generate some pressure on the Georgia General Assembly to get them to change this stupid restriction on concealed carry holders in Georgia.

    Thanks!

    I don't agree with the law either. It needs to be changed to a "no carry under the influence" law. If someone wants to be a designated driver and not drink that individual shuld be allowed to carry. I think everyone knows that alcohol and guns, like alcohol and driving, don't always mix well. I'm already a member of GCO and intend to remain so. They're doing an outstanding grassroots job and deserve support.

    Ohio has the same ridiculous restriction , and many others such as:
    no carry in Public Buildings. This includes highway rest stop and State Park facilities. But no specific restriction on carry on state land. Just the buildings.

    GCO sounds like a counterpart to OFCC
    We should all support our local Grass Roots orgs. They are/will be the deciding factor in defining the difference between Rights and Privileges to our States' Legislatures.

    Somebody from Tennessee needs to forward this to the appropriate authority in their state.. I'm wondering if these strict laws are because of Atlanta, like Chicago is to Illinois.

    I thought our new laws in Kansas were strict but after reading a bit I don't think we have it all that bad.

    Why?

    TN's law is written with a "Safe Harbor" clause. If you carry where you should not, and you have to use your weapon, they will not go back and charge you with illegale carry.

    39-17-1322. Defenses.

    A person shall not be charged with or convicted of a violation under this part if the person possessed, displayed or employed a handgun in justifiable self-defense or in justifiable defense of another during the commission of a crime in which that person or the other person defended was a victim.

    I'm glad that Florida doesn't. Not that I drink, but all of the "Nice" Restaurants serve alcohol.

    Nope, they are old Jim Crow laws that are still in effect.

    Florida has a law regarding bars, but has nothing against restaurants that serve adult beverages. I for one will go for an all day motorcycle ride with my buddys and have a couple beers along the way, and can see no reason, why I should leave my sidearm at home.

    Back in another lifetime, I use to be an auxiliary deputy sheriff. I remember asking the sheriff what to do when I went to New Orleans for the weekend about legally carrying my combat commander 45. The sheriff said, Son if you pull your sidearm and shoot someone the last question, the investigator is going to ask ya is where you got the 45. And he added that when he visits other states he never disarmed.

    Same holds true today, when I travel, I always carry a sidearm, and figure if something should happen and I forced to use my sidearm, Ill worry about that states particular conceal carry laws later.

    VA law says that you can carry openly in a restaurant or bar that serves alcohol, but you can't carry concealed.

    tns0038 - I'm sure the mods will remind you, but it is against policy (and common sense, to a degree) to advocate or encourage any illegal behavior - even if you don't agree with the law(s) in question.

    I sympathize, but be careful!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
