I am new to this site. I am enjoying the wealth of knowledge and shared experiences. This morning I stopped at a Circle K to get a drink and I noticed a sign in the window that said "Columbia County Sheriff's Sub-Station". I wondered if that technically made it a "public building" like a court house or police station. So, I called the Probate Court office and when I asked the young lady that question, she responded, "you cannot carry a gun in a public gathering of 2 or more people." I told her that didn't sound right and that you can't go many places where there aren't more than 2 people in the same place. She then repeated her statement in a very condescending and aggravated tone of voice. I knew she was very wrong, but didn't want to argue on the phone, so I said "thank you very much" and hung up. I knew I wouldn't get anywhere on the phone with someone like that. So I will visit the courthouse this week to get clarification. I have read so many LEO encounters where the law was not known or incorrectly applied, but this is even more unbelieveable - this poor information is being given out by the same office that issues the permits!!!
