    Reading through the newest city and county ordinances that municode has posted to add to the parks list and I have run across a few strange things.

    1. The city of Bloomingdale has the emergency power to regulate firearm transportation
    2. The city of Chamblee has a 15 day waiting period for handgun sales, unless you have a license.
    3. Chamblee also prohibits carry in a parade, picket line, or group demonstration.

    1. Bogus
    2. Bogus, but does Chamblee have any gun stores?
    3. Bogus, but a parade could be a public gathering (making it a state crime, anyway).

    Can a municipality pass an ordinance on a pre-empted matter that is not one of the three exceptions listed if they simply agree with the state law?

    GS1, I copied your post from the other thread in current bills so people could see the text:

    "I noticed municode has added more cities and counties. So while I was looking for updates to the list of cities and counties that restrict carry in parks, I came across a city that has emergency power to restrict firearm carry.

    Bloomingdale, Ga
    Quote:
    Sec. 26-33. Emergency powers of local government.
    ...
    (11) Suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transportation of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.


    You would think pre-emption covers this. Just like it covers parks..."

    O.C.G.A. 16-11-173

    (b)(1) No . . . municipal corporation, by . . . ordinance . . . shall regulate in any manner . . . the . . . transport . . . of firearms . . .



    I don't know. That isn't very clear. I can't possibly understand whether it affects the ordinance above.

    :D

    After reading Palmetto's code section three or four times, very slowly, I do not think it applies to a holstered firearm.
