    I live in RI and have a potential job in Georgia. looks like you guys have a nice site here. Although I must say compared to RI GA is a poor state for carry.

    The perception is the exact opposite. Most people who don't carry here think that GA's laws are just so great for carry. The strange thing is that most people here think that all of these restrictions are just normal when in reality they are way more restrictive than the vast majority of states. I still think GA is the worst of the "shall issue" states and also worse than the "may issue" states if you can get the license.

    Most people don't even know all of these off-limits places, they just carry.
    It takes months of reading this board to really know the full scope of GA's off-limits areas.

    I agree, it is one thing for citizens to not know and carry. It is worse that Firearm Dealers do not know carry laws when selling a firearm to someone who wants to carry.

    It is frightening that a large number of LEOs dont even know the law.

    It scary when LEOs think a place is off limits when it is not, BUT I think it is great when a place IS off limits and the police do not know . . .

    Yes, we do. Some have revealed that, others have not, but I know them. There are probably others I do not know about.

    I have also talked to LEOs that I do not know who do not post on this site but do read it.

    So, yes, in short.

    There are also several ex-LEOs, including me and jrm.
