That open carry in GA is illegal. Then I found out he used to be a LEO. Then he referred to people who aren't LEO's and that carry guns as "civilians". I referred him to our site here. He said he's been here many times and that no matter what I have heard here, that OC in GA is ILLEGAL. He also told me Muscogee Co. and Columbus police would stop me, disarm me, and arrest me for OC'ing. I was also told to contact the state AG's office to determine what the legality of OC is, but that it was pointless, as OC is ILLEGAL. No matter what I said, he had some other argument...then his buddy---the other know-it-all chimed in with the same responses, just a little more snobby about it. He even says that CCW in any place is ILLEGAL, because any area can be construed as a "public gathering". So what is the truth? I went looking for a decent holster to OC my 1911 or perhaps my SIG, now I am really turned off to the whole store.
