    Did you feel at any time if your gun wanted to jump out of its holster and go on a shooting rampage by itself? :lol:

    Seriously though, that was either very brave or very foolish. I wouldn't risk getting busted just to do a little test like that. But it was interesting reading about your experience.

    I agree with your argument completely. However, I sure wouldn't have pushed the issue with the LEO, friend or foe. If you weight the cost vs benefit and decide you want to carry to a PG that is your choice. Personally, I wouldn't flaunt it.

    I am not criticizing you in any way - just warning you to be careful. It would be costly if you did get caught, $ in court cost & loss of GFL. Wouldn't look too good for the rest of us either.

    I guess you'd have to prove that you let them know as SOON as you found out about it.

    Again. I am not criticizing you. I am simply offering discussion.

    He might can be trusted, but what if someone else had seen it when you lifted your shirt?

    I believe the intent of the code section you quoted is to allow an "out" in the event of an accidental CC/OC to a PG. You realize you are at a PG, you tell a LEO or security officer. They would (in any circumstance other than you telling your "friend") in turn either hold your weapon for you or escort you out without arrest. I don't think if would be defensible in court for you to say, "Well I told Officer Friend that I had a weapon and he didn't tell me to leave." I would think all that would do is get you a misdemeanor conviction and get your buddy fired.

    You put him in an awkward position, at a minimum.

    Sadly, I think we have come to expect it somewhat. :(

    Re: At a PG...

    That statement, in and of itself, is completely counter to the concept of liberty understood by our founding fathers and enshrined in the 2nd Amendment.

    In fact the word badge doesn't appear anywhere in the bill of rights.

    The guy who bought the last pistol I sold had one of those. He carried it in a regular badge/id wallet like a LEO. Heck of a nice guy, but I hope he doesn't think that will get him out of any kind of trouble.

    If only it were that simple... :(


    Some years ago, a county sheriff in KY issued "special deputy" badges to a fairly large number of people, primarily those who contributed to his election/reelection campaigns above a set amount. I think it was a couple of hundred $, whatever the legal maximum was at the time.

    For all intents and purposes, other than having arrest powers and drawing paychecks from the county, those people were sworn LEOs. A number of people who held those badges used them as authority to carry. This was before KY became a "shall issue" state. Pardon me, a "shall issue" commonwealth.

    When a new, and hopefully less corrupt person was elected following the sheriff's indictment, he had a hell of a time tracking down and repossessing all those badges, but he tried. I knew a couple of people who sorta forgot to turn them in after the new sheriff put out a public appeal, followed by a published list of those who hadn't complied, followed by knocks on their doors... I don't know if he ever got them all back, but he made a valiant effort.

    Anyway, I don't suppose there's any possibility of "getting a badge" in GA in a similar manner.

    Or, is there?

    Can a sheriff, or other CLEO, deputize people who haven't completed the required LEO training?

    I have one issued by Chief Lumpkin and Mayor Heidi Davison of Athens-Clarke County. It was issued upon completion of the Citizen Police Academy sponsored by the ACCPD.

    Did I mention it was about about half-inch by quarter-inch in size? It is a lapel pin replica of the ACCPD badges.

    :rotfl2:

    It is unlikely to get me out of any trouble. Especially, since I can't find a badge wallet small enough to fit it.
