An armed security guard CCW license is only valid while working or to and from work. That said, no license is needed to carry a shotgun in a car. :wink:

Ya mean GWL, don'cha? 8)

But, to answer the poster's question.... the OCGA does not mention long-arms in relation to the GWL, do there is no law prohibition the carry of a loaded shotgun, (or rifle) in a vehicle.

My Mistake,
GFL is correct, thanks for all the helpful answers but the link led me to nbelieve loaded has to be in open view, that sets you up for a smash & grab doesn't it, leaving the weapon in the hands of a perp.
Did I mis-interpret what I read in the link.
Thanks,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but since it's a WEAPONS Carry License, someone can carry other weapons other than firearms also right?

BUT KEEP IN MIND ALL THE "OFF LIMITS LOCATIONS" where guns are banned.

There are still some places off limits under what used to be the "public gathering" Code section, 16-11-127.

And the school zone law, 16-11-127.1

With the exception of subsection (b), loaded or unloaded / concealed or open makes no difference.

Riverbend, if you're in your car, home, place of business or on your property and do not have a dis-qualifier for being able to posses and carry a gun, then loaded and concealed is fine.

Also note that if you don't have a GWL, then the Federal school safety zone comes into play and you may violate federal law by driving within so many feet of a school.
