I live in Jones county - pretty rural and laid back about guns. For the last couple of years I've carried open & concealed to pick my child up from after school care in the afternoons. I know the ladies that are usually in charge so no one has ever said anything to me about it. This summer my kids are doing a summer camp at the school (done by the school) and I've been drop dropping them off and picking them up this week. Different teachers are running it. This morning one asked me the obligatory "Are you an officer" question. "Nope". She proceeded to tell me the school was off limits and I couldn't carry. I disagreed and said that the Ga Code says I can when dropping off or picking up. Then she advised I could still carry as long as I didn't come in the building. "no ma'am I believe you are incorrect. When I come get my kids this afternoon I'll be happy to bring a copy of the code to give to whoever told you to tell me not to do this." This afternoon I got a call from a Lt from JCSO to explain that it was illegal and please don't do it again. We had conversation about the 16-11-127.1 and he said he didn't have internet where he was calling from so he couldn't read the sections but regardless if the school principle & county superintendent have declared no weapons in the building then there will be no weapons in the building! I politely informed him that he was mistaken and that if state law says the building is legal then it is and the Prin nor the Super can make up their own laws and overrule state law (yeah I know sometimes that is permissible, not in this case) and any such notion was . He ended up with saying that this was going to be "written up" and "on file" and if I go back in the school with a gun I'll get cited with something or other , I forget exactly what he told me it would be and could be . I advised that perhaps he should get the law pulled up and then we could talk about it. He said he would look up the section and call me back. About ten minutes later I get another call. He still tells me I'm wrong. That under c(7) I can pick up & drop off but can't go in the building. I asked him how he gets that when that section specifically states "school safety zone" which is defined in (3) as being real property or BUILDING. At this point we pause in the conversation for a short silent interlude while he ponders the question. Then he comes back with "Well that's not what they taught us in (whatever class he went to about this stuff)" and says he is kinda surprised at that. He then realizes that I appear to actually know what I'm talking about and might have a leg to stand on (not saying I actually do on either point but...) and says what he'll do is call the DA about this today and get back to me. I agreed I'd not tote in the school again until I hear back assuming he gets back to me in a reasonable amount of time. So. When someone calls back and says that's not what things mean I'll insist on something in writing. Then I guess I'll see where things go from there. Fun times!! P.S. I will give the guy a break in that he did sort of kinda know the laws (and I have zero doubts that he has been told to enforce them this way) and was familiar with what just changed for colleges and such. Nice enough as well once he figured out I wasn't just the lower end fella who wants to be a hard head and carry his gun everywhere he pleases. I'm at least a middle end fella who wants to carry everywhere.
