:applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:A fantastic way to settle most of this arguing is for the Legislature and governor to pass and sign a two-pronged bill that would allow permit-less carry in all currently allowed locations (thus giving the "Constitutional Carry" crowd less infringements) and also would add GWCL holders to the exempted persons list in 16-11-130 of the Georgia Code (would add a tremendous value to the license by allowing license holders to carry in restricted areas).
I have a friend who is a probate judge. He has had to show his ID as a judge in a few areas (namely the state capitol), to gain entry with his firearm.Sounds good. Just wondering, do non-uniformed "only ones" routinely have to show proof of their status to enter an otherwise restricted area?
If 'non-uniformed only ones' means anyone besides a uniformed law enforcement officer then, yes...Sounds good. Just wondering, do non-uniformed "only ones" routinely have to show proof of their status to enter an otherwise restricted area?
Fortunately, the penalty for not having such proof in one's possession is the same as the penalty for not having a GWL in one's possession (at least to the best of my reading).O.C.G.A. Â§ 16-11-137
Required possession of weapons carry license or proof of exemption when carrying a weapon; detention for investigation of carrying permit
(a) Every license holder shall have his or her valid weapons carry license in his or her immediate possession at all times when carrying a weapon,
or if such person is exempt from having a weapons carry license pursuant to Code Section 16-11-130 or subsection (c) of Code Section 16-11-127.1, he or she shall have proof of his or her exemption in his or her immediate possession at all times when carrying a weapon, and his or her failure to do so shall be prima-facie evidence of a violation of the applicable provision of Code Sections 16-11-126 through 16-11-127.2.
