Quite right. These weapons never much interested me, so I had frankly forgotten about them.GAGunOwner said:And lastly, on a seperate note, there are several NFA weapons that are "pistols" and "revolvers." Smoothbarrelled pistols and revolvers, certain penguns and other AOWs, and of course Macs, Glock 18s, and Skorpion machinepistols.
The GA Gun Law in plain english was NEVER designed, written, nor intended to address federal gun law. That is why you see the disclaimer"there may be federal laws that limit the possession and carrying of dangerous weapons to only a person's home and/or place of business."GAGunOwner said:After reading at the top of the page "GA GUN LAW" I noticed that it says "there may be federal laws that limit the possession and carrying of dangerous weapons to only a person's home and/or place of business."
There are indeed NO FEDERAL LAWS that govern the carrying of what are known as NFA devices (Dangerous Weapons under GA LAW) as long as you don't enter Federal property. You must, however, be in compliance with state and local law. Since Georgia has local preemption there are no local laws. Therefore, if it is legal to carry NFA devices/Dangerous Weapons under state law, it is indeed legal.
If you legally posses NFA devices (they are legally registered to you or your corporation) you may carry them in accordance with Georgia law. While Georgia Law doesn't specifically address the issue of carrying "Dangerous Weapons" with a GFL, it seems that this would be legal since DANGEROUS WEAPONS are also FIREARMS under state law. The GFL is a firearms license and not just a pistol license.
This is not legal advice. I am not a lawyer(yet).
