    Ok, my reading of this says that it is legal to open carry on board. Also that LEO's, Retired LEO's and Military are exempt.

    Then I go to 16-12-127 and it says:
    Now to me that means that open nor concealed carry is not allowed at a terminal, but if that is true then LEO's, Retired LEO's and Military are not exempt either because they are not listed in this code section.

    So, if I am correct, licensees can open carry on a bus (and military can conceal on the bus) as long as you do not board or get off the bus at a terminal or regular stop.
    A non-terminal stop would be even harder to do on a subway.

    Got to love Georgia's confusing and conflicting laws.

    Sure, and we can openly carry explosives onto the bus, too, right? :roll: :?

    How about parking lots? They are part of the definition of terminal in 16-12-122.

    Just don't park near the terminal.

    That way you have more of a chance of either getting robbed while walking to/from your car or getting your car broken into and having the firearm stolen.
