See O.C.G.A. 16-7-21
What about 16-11-184?Is anyone aware of any authority allowing carry in any public place, owned by a public corporation, that is not otherwise off limits?
I am still not sure they can if you are not breaking the rules or law. As you quoted "Gilbert concedes the illegality of his conduct under Georgia law". So he was already doing something illegal by state or local law but the case was about whether the state's law was illegal by constitutional law(1st Amend) and therefore make the injunction invalid.I was of the opinion that if one was in a place where he was lawfully allowed to be, and not doing anything illegal (such as the open carry of a firearm with a license), then he could remain and the government could not order him to leave.
I would like opinions. Do you think O.C.G.A. 16-11-173sufficiently addresses this issue by barring public authorities trying to throw you off public property (not a public gathering under 16-11-127) for having a firearm?Gunstar1 said:What about 16-11-173?
(b)(1) No county or municipal corporation, by zoning or by ordinance, resolution, or other enactment, shall regulate in any manner gun shows, the possession, ownership, transport, carrying, transfer, sale, purchase, licensing, or registration of firearms, components of firearms, firearms dealers, or dealers in firearms components.
To me that says that cities, counties, and those authorities and corps they grant power to cannot make any kind local firearm rule that is enforcable.
I am not sure it is for any reason. The Eleventh Circuit case above dealt with free speech, and I am quite sure they cannot ask you to leave for a reason protected by law : race, sex, religion, firearm?Gunstar1 said:So as far as I am aware, they can ask you to leave the park for no reason if they want to. Whether it is a desire to remove you because of a firearm or your pink shirt, does not matter. You may be able to get out of it if you can prove the removal was solely because of the firearm, but that is a big IF and dependent on what county/city the park is in.
Well, I would. Especially if he were a "known child molester" like the 17 year old football "phenom" who had consensual relations with a 15? year old. Easier to monitor activity in a public area, and parents conducting supervision can remove their dependents in short order.Malum Prohibitum said:In principle, I agree with using criminal trespass laws to throw people off public property. Would anyone here oppose asking a man to leave if he were a known child molester passing out candy to children in the park?
