    Larry and I worked the GCO booth together on Sunday, July 15th and had a great time (I can only speak for myself Larry :wink: ).

    Discussion came up about various ways of carrying and the laws here in GA. A gentleman visiting the booth was talking about how he lives in Gwinnett and that a person is able to OC without a GFL. I corrected him according to OCGA 16-11-128 and informed him that under this section you must obtain a GFL before carrying, regardless of openly or concealed and that our law was not the same as Virginias.

    Larry and I talked about this after the gentleman left and made a bet on this.

    I, wsweeks 2, am stating that you can NOT OC without a GFL.

    Larryg2 is stating that you CAN OC without a GFL.

    We decided to put up a poll and see what everyone on here feels and to decide who owes who lunch.

    *Note - we're not talking about the fact that the 2nd Amendment should be all you need, but based strictly on current GA laws.

    Sure, you can open carry without a GFL.

    You'll just go to jail because it's illegal.

    It's that silly little legality thingy that keeps most people from doing it.

    Yes, you can. No one else voted the same way I did, though it appears everyone has the same thoughts on the matter. Of course, that's excepting larryg2...

    Conclusion: Question is too ambiguous?

    1. Yes you can if you are hunting or fishing.
    2. You can open carry a non-concealeable firearm (long gun) without a license.
    3.You can open carry without a license if you are listed as exempt in 16-11-130.
    4. "We are talking about every day carrying". Bill, ole chum....this one never came up!!! :lol:

    You owe me lunch......a simple tuna fish sandwich will suffice!!!! :lol: 8) :wink:

    I will concede, however the gentleman that started this conversation was claiming that one of Gwinnett's finest advised him to OC without applying for a GFL, as it wasn't necessary under any circumstance.

    Let me know what caliber your gun is and I'll even buy "lunch" for the gun as well.

    :oops:
