The title says it all, can you legally carry on a college campus? What are the likely concequences if you're caught? My wife is considering another degree and Atlanta is out of the question if she can't carry.

Assuming the person is a GWL holder they'd be charged with a misdemeaor. They'd lose their gun forever. They'd loose their GWL for a period of time. They'd probably spend a few nights in the Fulton County jail until getting bonded out. The person would have an arrest record. They could face up to a year in jail but with no previous record the person would probably get some type of probation/community service, etc. The person would probably have to pay a fine. They would probably be expelled from the school forever. The person would probably be embarrsed by the local news.

While probably true in practice, where do you see this codified?
