If you own or manage a liquor store (you sell booze, but NOT for consumption on your property), can you carry a firearm, or keep one behind the counter, for the protection of your life, the lives of your customers, and the prevention of other serious felonies against your business? Or is there a law, rule, or administrative regulation prohibiting it? I know that the "public gatherings" law, 16-11-127 would not apply to a liquor store, but what about something found in O.C.G.A. Title 3, regarding alcoholic beverages, or the licensing regulations promulgated by the state Board? I was talking to the owner of a liquor store today, who told me that he's forbidden from having a gun on the premises, due to some special law that only applied to holders of alcoholic beverage licenses. He said that if the liquor law inspector ever caught him with a gun on the property, he could lose his business license. Could this be true? Does the state of Georgia really have a policy mandating that liquor store clerks be shot to death execution-style, begging for their lives, unable to effectively resist?
