My sincerest thanks to the GA State Senators who voted yes yesterday to help clarify the state gun laws! Here is a link to an article about the bills: http://www.ajc.com/news/gun-bills-clear-senate-401484.html



Currently, it is illegal to: Carry a firearm within 1000 feet of a school (including universities); Have a gun on church property (including a secured firearm in a vehicle); and carry a firearm at a public gathering (no one, including LEOs have any clue what a public gathering is! So if you have a gun practically anywhere you can be arrested on this, but will most likely get tossed in court).



Victory for common sense!
Now let's see if it makes it through the house!

Thanks for the link.



Kudos for the legislators whom are trying to clarify the statutes.



But I believe Ernie muddied the information and perhaps needs a little help with his sentence structure:



By Ernie Suggs

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution



"Two bills allowing licensed guns to be carried in churches, bars and parts of airports on Wednesday were passed by the Senate, closing out a marathon day of legislation."



IF you take Ernie at his words, it sounds like Wednesday's are a good day to schedule your flight plans.

Carrying in churches was not included in the final GA bills changing carry law this year. The governor threaten to veto any bills that allowed carry in church. The Atlanta Airport was included in a second bill that passed the senate and house, but the governor vetoed that bill.



Here is the current law as changed this year: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/sum/sb308.htm



It is much better than before.
But we still have more to do to make the law clearer and better.



An organization called GCO has been instrumental in getting the law changed. If you want to join, here is the link: http://www.georgiacarry.org/
