    Unlicensed CCW for Military in Georgia?

    This one threw me. A very good friend's son is in the Air Force stationed in Georgia. He was home on leave and I noticed a Kahr nine in the SOB position. (I was NOT concealed well). I told him that's a good way to get in very serious trouble in Wisconsin. He said" Oh, I forgot, in Georgia all Military can carry concealed weapons with no permit." I sure never heard of this and can't find it addressed on line. If anyone know's the truth of that, please let me know. Thanks.

    remind him that Georgia law does not trump Wisconsin law and that he needs to observe Wisconsin's law while he is in the state.

    I'm guessing the subject carry provision is good only inside Ga and not honored for reciprocity anywhere unless the hard permit is obtained

    Not sure. Concealed carry in the state of WI is illegal unless you are a LEO or retired LEO.

    Wisconsin has no reciprocity, does not issue carry permits, does not honor a carry permit. Unless you are LE carrying in compliance with LEOSA you cannot conceal a weapon in public in Wisconsin. Period. Military doesn't mean crap.

    He is correct as to the military in GA, however that is only good within the state borders of GA. Once he crosses the state line he must be in compliance of that states laws.

    Only stationed in GA?

    I'm not at a computer now or I'd look it up again but I believe it only applies to active duty servicemembers stationed in GA?

    In this thread it is hashed out pretty well.

    http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...-ga-carry.html

    In this GA AG Opinion he hashes out his logic as the Attorney General.
    AG Opinions - firearm

    IANAL but in section 16-11-130 it states as an exemption to Concealed Carry Laws:
    "(3) Persons in the military service of the state or of the United States;"
    it does not specifify stationed in GA or while on duty, this covers all persons in Military Service of the United States while in the state of Georgia. It does not and can not cover reciprocity since it exempts them from GA concealed Carry Laws, they can carry concealed anywhere law exforcement can in the State of GA.

    I dont understand what the issue is,,,, if he is allowed to carry without a permit, then whats the big deal??? If he is not pushing the limits on where he is going i.e federal buildings an so forth,

    what does it matter then???

    He is allowed to carry concealed only in the state of Georgia without a permit. This incident happened in the state of Wisconsin where it is illegal to carry concealed, be it military or not.
