I had a really interesting conversation with a buddy of mine tonight who is a leo up here in N.GA. We had been at the range shooting and on the way home got into a nice conversation about civilian carry. Let me first say that I carry around him often, and he knows it. We talk guns, carry rigs, etc. I even put him onto looking at Southern Holsters. He is an awesome guy. Worked for the Athens P.D. at one point before moving out to this side of town. We got into a conversation about the law and public gatherings and he told me that one of his superiors told him that the GFL wasn't worth the paper that it is written on. We talked about this, and apparently his boss' opinion is that because the language is so vague in GA law concerning the public gathering, he feels that there really isn't any place that a civilian with a GFL can carry 100 percent legally. I pulled out my GFL and he and I took a look at that stupid law and honestly as most of us believe, the law absolutely blows. It is rediculous. The next part of our conversation really surprised me. He asked me what the difference between the GFL that I had and a concealed carry permit was. This blew my mind, so I explained the GFL to him and explained that it also allowed me to open carry legally. I never thought I would be explaining this to an LEO, who was sitting in my car after we had spent the afternoon shooting. He is a good cop and a good guy but nobody had ever taken the time to train him properly on this fact. All in all, I opened his eyes today and hopefully he will share this with his fellow officers.
