That sucks! By his logic, should the deputies also log anyone who owns a cell phone? The "could" commit a crime of texting while driving, be involved in a phone scam, or call in a bomb threat. Or maybe they will start recording anyone that has unopened alcohol in the car because they "could " later commit a crime. I call BS.Our illustrious King Cop has decided to enact this policy to log all weapons found during an encounter.
I thought Georgia had laws preventing localities from implementing policies or local laws governing firearms, there is another i had read specifically targeting just that let me see if i can find itForms shall be designed to elicit information from the applicant pertinent to his or her eligibility under this Code section, including citizenship, but shall not require data which is nonpertinent or irrelevant, such as serial numbers or other identification capable of being used as a de facto registration of firearms owned by the applicant.
Are there any other gun laws forbidding the keeping of a registry in Georgia?
This is not the regulation of any of the above, so it does not violate preemption.Here found it on Giffords lol
"[N]o county or municipal corporation, by zoning, by ordinance or resolution, or by any other means, nor any agency, board, department, commission, political subdivision, school district, or authority of this state, other than the General Assembly, by rule or regulation or by any other means shall regulate in any manner: (A) Gun shows; (B) The possession, ownership, transport, carrying, transfer, sale, purchase, licensing, or registration of firearms or other weapons or components of firearms or other weapons; (C) Firearms dealers or dealers of other weapons; or (D) Dealers in components of firearms or other weapons."2
According to Jerry Henry, GCO is aware of it. He said that is someone's rights get violated by the policy, that GCO will have standing for a lawsuit.How about if one of the attorneys on here (especially one with direct ties to GCO) write that sheriff chump a letter informing him that his policy is illegal?
