I predict a change in the statute.

Yep. This is the one fight that I've never thought we should pick. This is the opponent that has the economic backing to change that statute in a big damn hurry.

Hopefully it will not be a return to the bad old days of the "public gathering" clause. But perhaps a very limited and narrowly focused prohibition on carrying at professional sports games.

You can be guaranteed that there will be quite a few municipalities throwing their weight behind a total repeal of that statute state-wide. They're already simply trying to ignore the statute - give them half a chance to do away with it completely and they'll be all-in.

Are the lot of you suggesting that GCO back off of its forward march? The mission from the beginning has been focused on removing places off limits.

Now I see folks posting on GeorgiaPacking that this is a bridge too far? We should stick with ballgames as a place legally off limits? Back off?

Not at all. I just think that there are still plenty of lower-hanging fruits that can be picked without as much risk. This is a righteous task, but one that carries the very real possibility of knocking our cause back quite a ways. Pick the opponents that aren't going to be backed by a billion-dollar company (the NFL). I agree with the fight - I just worry about the outcome.

Either the Republicans "for the Second Amendment" in the Georgia General Assembly trust us vetted licensed carriers, or they don't.

This is where the rubber meets the road. Is it self-defense rights, or feel-good "gun-free" shoot-em-up zones?

Yes just like operation market garden too far too fast.

Many gun owners allow themselves to be bullied by antis. They believe they are righteous and believe righteousness is all that is needed to prevail.

Exactly. I say we don't back down.

And we are VOTERS.

... and we stay home from voting if we are taken for granted or have ANY rights taken away.

I believe it's battle that needs fighting. I just hope we don't wake a sleeping giant that steps on us. I also hope we don't tear ourselves apart in the mean time.

Unless they kept an off duty officer from carrying, they'll be in compliance with the law due to it being a government building.

Is it a government building by definition of 16-11-127? Is a government entity housed there?

If not, then it is just a publicly owned and and operated building and not subject to the "opt out" clause by having POST certified officers there screening ingress for weapons.

Government buildings are not off limits unless they have active security screening. Carry at your local public library, fire station or civic center all you like.

It's not yet a government building.

And the statue does not need to be changed to be more restrictive against us.

They can do like every other major building and have a government board meet there once a year, like Philips Arena did.
