    Nationwide reciprocity is the golden chalice but I don't think that will happen in our lifetime.

    So what are the smaller battles we should take on...

    I have misgivings about getting the feds involved with nationwide recoprocity.

    In general, we're getting more and more states easing up on reciprocity requirements or just going constitutional carry. So maybe no federal interference is neccessary.

    I totally agree, getting the Feds involved is a "Slippery Slope" issue. Besides if the citizens of a particular state won't vote to elect 2A friendly state representatives, then I have no mercy for those folks.

    Tennessee, NC, and SC need true state preemption. They all give local governments way too much leeway to ban weapons. And in SC, city, county, and state owned buildings don't even need a sign for them to be illegal to carry in.

    Alabama needs to make it clear what constitutes "physical barriers" and "guards".

    Georgia and Florida need to clearly decipher exactly what is private vs public property regarding weapons carry.

    AZ needs to allow state park carry.

    AR needs to stop allowing local governments the authority to ban guns in parks, and also needs to stop banning guns in "sensitive areas" of state parks.

    MS still lets local governments ban guns in local parks, unless you have an "enhanced" license - something you only get with training, and only if you are a MS resident.

    Folks, there are a LOT of battles going on just at the state level. I've only scratched the surface here.

    Places of worship
    Schools, colleges, etc.

    Federal?
    CoE land
    Post offices
    Any other federally off-limits locations that are open to the general public and aren't secured
    Remove suppressors from the NFA

    Also...it would be helpful if GA had a non-resident construct for issuance.

    Then people in states that do not honor GA's license would have no reason to fight for it to carry in GA.

    It would be far better in GA if we allowed NJ, CA, and HI visitors to obtain permits, carry here, and defend themselves than to keep them as disarmed victims similar to their home states.

    The only reason to keep someone disarmed is an attempt at authoritarian control over them...why must we advocate our enemy's tactics to get our way?

    National reciprocity is the way to go. So even if California or NJ decides to mess with its own citizens, one can still get an AZ one.

    This should be an easy one given the full faith and credit clause. It was reinforced in Obergefell.

    Ga carry is about local change, other groups can handle national issues. GCO needs to stay focused.

    I'd love to see:
    Campus carry

    Written clarification of government buildings

    Polling places

    Written clarification on state owned property that is leased to private parties.

    And one day......maybe not tomorrow but one day constitutional carry.

    GCO only charges $20 a year, $500 life time membership. That kind of money has its limits, focus only on Ga as they have been.

    You guys want national change
    1) vote
    2) contribute to a national focused group
    3) let GCO lead by example

    Great list by MonkeyBoy, and I concur.

    I would only add church carry. Churches need to be removed from off limits areas and should be just like any private property.

    Wouldn't adding us to the 130 list bed a simple fix

    "The only reason . . . is an attempt at authoritarian control?"

    That's just a silly statement.

    We just saw the "only reason" Georgia's law is worded that way. We saw it in action. 45_Fan, I introduce you to South Carolina recognition.

    Was what we just witnessed "authoritarian control?" :lol:

    I wish this was politically feasible in a state with a Governor who just vetoed HB 1060 and HB 859.

    It might be less obvious, and less high profile, than a "campus carry" bill. Definitely not as hyperbole rich as "drunk children" having shootouts. Merely reducing off limits locations again.

    If our Representatives and Senators had the will, they could remove the additional off-limits locations, and override the Governor's expected veto.

    Maybe they just don't trust us, or love us enough?
