It doesn't matter. Public gatherings are not part of the weapons code of Georgia any more. You can carry at public gatherings all you want, provided they are not on the list of prohibited places (Government buildings, bars, churches, etc., click Gun Laws up top and read the list of places).ABC3 said:A"fair", for instance with paid admission is still considered a "public gathering" - is it not ? According to our local LEO it is.
I know they can't keep up with all the changes. Anymore, I don't know what's right or wrong. I guess that's why CC is CC.
Sure! The public is gathered there, right? We just do not know what that has to do with your decision about whether to carry.ABC3 said:A"fair", for instance with paid admission is still considered a "public gathering" - is it not ? According to our local LEO it is.
God forbid you sneak up on someone with that pig sticker and commence ta cleanin' their fingernails.zookeper said:last time i went to the cumming fair they took my kershaw from me, returned it when i left. haven't been this year, but should i be forced to go, if they are still conducting weapon checks it could get interesting.
btw: i was not searched for the knife, it was clipped and visible on my front pocket.
You almost have to carry a sign on a thin yard stick (measuring stick) type pole to be legal. If he would have taken it off the stick he would have been legal (I think).MyFred said:... This stick appeared to be about 1x1/4x2 or 3 feet long...
It probably wouldn't have gone over real well to mount it on a (just purchased) sword and carry it around either, but that's a good question to ask them. They usually sell walking sticks and pieces of steel from the blacksmith too. The law comes into play when you mount a sign on it. :screwy:MyFred said:... We had already seen some vendors selling swords for crying out loud, and theyâ€™re harassing this poor guy for exercising his rights just because a â€œdangerous stickâ€ was involved...
