GeorgiaCarry.Org Sues over “Man with a Gun” Incident
From the latest GCO email update:
GCO filed a federal lawsuit
in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia against the Sheriff of Richmond County and a Richmond County deputy who detained a GCO member and seized his legally-carried pistol. After checking it to see whether it was stolen, the deputy confiscated the firearm until “proof of purchase” could be provided, and the Sheriff’s Department then refused to return it. The deputy insisted that it is against the law to carry a pistol openly. This sort of police misconduct is fortunately rare, but it is becoming more common as more Georgians begin carrying firearms.
Man With a Gun News
In other news, at the first hint of lawyers, the Richmond County Sheriff's Department miraculously
located Mr. Mead's firearm within a few hours (oops, guess it really was not
at the GBI after all, as they had claimed) and returned it to him. The lawsuit is moving forward.

How amazing!!! Glad they are still moving forward with the lawsuit and I hope they get a nice big settlement. That's the only thing they understand, the cops need to understand their states gun laws!!

I hate it when LEO's enforce imaginary laws, or are ignorant of the law, or both.
Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

Well, it seems that at least one Sheriff's Department is about to be educated regarding Open Carry!

If they would spend more time enforcing gun laws against the gang-bangers and drug dealers they would not have time to harrass the law abiding citizens who have every right to be armed.
