The state preemption is for firearms, and it has two exceptions.

1. Local governments can regulate the discharge of firearms.
2. Local governments can regulate the carrying of firearms by their own employees.

Three exceptions.

3. Local governments can require heads of households within their jurisdiction to own and maintain a firearm.

If that is the case local ordinaces about possessing or carrying of firearms are uninforceble.

On the other hand, since knives and knife carry are not preempted these ordinaces do hold the weight of law and you could be arrested for carrying them?
Some cities and counties do illegally restrict carry in their parks.

Yes you could be arrested for carrying a knife in cities or counties with draconian laws.

I imagine you could be arrested for carrying a gun in a local park, too.

True but you could be arrested for carrying a gun anywhere really. It is simply will whatever they try to charge you with hold up in court. State law trumps local no matter how many ordinances restricting firearm carry they pass.

Being the guy who wrote the linked page in question, and having done so some years ago, what's the upshot on current GA knife laws? (Yes I'll look into municode when I can, which might be a while until my new home paperwork is settled.)

I didn't write it, either.



Didn't want to leave the wrong impression . . .
