If an armed citizen possesses a weapon's license, to what crime is the GWL an element? I confess that I've always been confused by the concept of "element of the crime."
with old law anytime you carried openly it was an element of the offense. this means the officer needed to know youre prohibited, unlicensed etc in order to detain you

if you were concealed it was an affirmative defense meaning that day on marta they could have completely arrested him and he would have to present his GFL(at the time) to defend himself against the charges...
