Well, he is wrong, but he did not arrest you.

Sorry about your truck.

Specifically, 16-11-126(d) the very last bit...

provided, however, that any person in possession of a valid permit issued pursuant to Code Section 16-11-129 may carry a handgun in any location in a motor vehicle.

Better yet, write him a short note thanking him for being polite and helping you at the accident scene, then tell him what 126 says, and enclose a copy from this web site, highlighting the language quoted above.

All firearms code sections in Georgia are available right here on this site by clicking on the yellow tab, above, Gun Laws. Then click on Weapon Related Ga Code.

No reason for that.
No way to physically resist it, either.[/quote:19mu9e2l]

Also no way to physically resist temporary confiscation of a Bible, a computer, or a file containing attorney-client communications. As long as we are abandoning the 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendments for some vague concept of officer safety, we may as well throw the 1st and 6th out as well.
:shock:

I think if Officer Rammstein attempted to seize your Bible for the duration of the accident investigation, and you physically resisted the seizure, you would probably be on safe legal ground.

I cannot with confidence say the same thing for the gun.

And that is very sad indeed. :(

All those other amendments depend on the 2nd to keep them alive. :shoot:

In GA there is no need to have a GFL to carry open in your vehicle on the seat, glove compartment or console. Please do as MP suggested and send him a polite note with the law. Also copy his superior - a plate of cookies or doughnuts go a long way too. LEOs need to be better informed. I am against him taking control of the fire arm - but I don't see any reasonable way to argue it without escalating the situation - not that there was one here - but there could have been with an objection.
