    HB 257 exempts constables from the prohibition on carrying in publicly owned or operated buildings and the school felony law.

    Um...constables as in the Brits with goofy hats and no guns?

    Seriously, how would this affect anyone?

    Seems like they should just add them to 16-11-130 and if they want to be extra certain about "school zones" they could add them there too.

    It doesn't look like the right path is to amend 16-11-127 like this proposal does.

    According to my reading of this billl it looks like constables would not be exempt from 16-11-126, 16-11-127.2, and 16-11-128. I guess what I'm saying is they get more for their legislative buck so to speak by adding them to 16-11-130.

    So if this passes would that mean that constables would still have to get the GFL and carry in a holster, even though they would be exempt from "school zones" and "public gathering?"

    What do you guys think? Malum?

    If this passes will constables ONLY be allowed to carry at "public gatherings" and "school zones" without a GFL but for everywhere else they must have a GFL?

    What do you think about this?

    Quirky GA Gun laws.

    I guess we should add this to the "Current Bills" page?

    Um, this is the current bills page :wink:

    and my description above was incorrect, so I changed it. The bill would not exempt constables from public gatherings generally, but only from the prohibition on publicly owned and operated buildings. You know, so they could walk into the courthouse to get their paperwork without getting arrested!

    If this looks like it is going anywhere we could try to add some pro-gun amendments to it. :devil:

    On the "Current Bills" tab it says that if HB 915 passed this constables law wouldn't be needed.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't these constables still have to get their special law to be able to carry in public K-12 schools?

    Thank God. This is what we need, to widen the gap of "rights" between public officials and the common scum citizens. After all, they and their protection are far more important that us and ours.

    I though that there was only going to be one gun bill this year. They should just add this to HB 89 and be done with it.

    This one seems not to be developing any controversy. I guess the Senate trusts constables, whereas you, on the other hand . . . :sly:
