    I thought Philadelphia was suing to allow the city to impose it's own regulations? :evil:

    I just think it is helpful to remember that Georgia's restrictions are not necessarily universal in this country, and yet the sky is not falling in these other states.

    Some state's have places off-limits that GA does not.

    1) Some states ban carry in banks/credit unions, GA does not.
    2) Some states ban carry at daycares/pre-schools, GA does not.
    3) Some states ban carry at local parks, GA does not.
    4) Some states specifically ban carry at hospitals, GA does not.
    5) One state used to ban carry at any place that sells alcohol including gas stations and Krogers, GA does not.
    6) Some states ban carry at Casinos, GA does not, but we don't have any legal Casinos. LOL.
    7) I think some states may ban carry at looney bins, GA does not.

    Even those states ban carry in fewer places than does Georgia, and mostly with less draconian penalties.

    Just a note,
    #4 is mostly covered by publicly owned or operated buildings
    #6 would be covered under alcohol served for consumption on the premisis, if we had any casinos
    #7 partially covered by publicly owned or operated building (nearest looney bin in my area is a state run facility)

    Right on #2

    I had just assumed that day cares and preschools were off-limits per 16-11-127.1, thinking that the legislature defined "School" broadly. But they didn't make it quite that broad. The definition of "school safety zone" applies to within 1000 feet of any "public or private elementary or secondary school." So I guess that means it has to actually be approved-of by the State as a school that can be used as a substitute for a public school, and the teaching has to be by certifed teachers, and the students being in at least kindergarden or higher grade.

    Well, that's good news.

    Of course the "public gathering" clause may or may not still apply-- no caselaw on point, and the statute itself is not clear, but there's clearly a gathering of people at such places. Whether it's a "public" gathering, as in, open to any member of the public who wants to stop by.... well it's not "public" in that respect, but I don't know that the law requires it to be.

    Re: Right on #2

    You left off "or within 1,000 feet of the campus of any public or private technical school, vocational school, college, university, or institution of postsecondary education."
