    Georgia makes gun possession on school property a felony, with up to ten years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.

    :shock:

    A lot of other states allow carry at Universities. I stole this list from somebody over at packing.org:

    Here's the list
    Alabama, Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Deleware, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana*, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota* + **, Missouri*, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia* + ***, Washington, West Virginia*.

    *postings have weight of law
    **students can be restricted from cc/possession by law
    ***except a "Virginia Commonwealth University"

    Counted up thats 26 states and from the look of the states over 50% of the population with 20 shall issue states and 6 may issue states allowing it.

    BTW, my home state of PA which allows cc at colleges/universities also has the largest permit hold population, over 600,000. Good luck and I hope this helps.

    Interesting. There are signs on every road going into the LSU campus. :x

    It's actually kinda odd given how liberally the castle doctrine has been applied in Louisana. I seem to remember some case where a homeowner shot this guy (a foreign exchange student who was lost) that had wondered into his yard at night; I'm pretty sure he got off free and clear.

    Are they not listed correctly on the GCO map or not listed correctly on the above list? I have a hard time believing Maryland and New York, for example, do not outlaw possession of firearms at universities (although stranger things have happened, as California does not outlaw it for those with a license).

    First off, let me say that I usually keep my pistol in my car at all times. I often drop off and pick up my younger brother from high school. Is it unlawful for me to have my pistol in my car while I am on campus or at least 1,000' from campus? The way the laws are worded are sort of confusing.

    Thanks

    The ones I listed are not listed as "good to go" on the GCO map, so the list is saying the opposite of the map. Don't know yet which one is accurate.....

    The state code O.C.G.A 16-11-127.1 carrying weapons within school safety zones, at school functions, and school property...

    is very confusing, grey and ambiguous...

    Shall NOT apply
    Exception 7) a person is a GFL holder, and is carrying or picks up a student. (does not say whose student it might be, just a student)
    never mentions picking up a staff member, teacher or otherwise..


    exception 17) Teacher and other school personnel wha are otherwised authorized to possess or carry weapons.
    (authoized how? A GFL license, written approval from a School authority?)

    Being a parent, and district school employee , this needs to be clarified.

    The info is not true in California. Open Carry is wrong.

    Except most areas you can't get a permit.

    And it is illegal in any state university or community college.

    Don't know how hard it is.... but, IF you get one, you are exempt.

    California has basically nothing off limits if you obtain a license. The Capitol building, the Governor's mansion, schools, airports, are all ok if you get the license. As for the difficulty of obtaining the license - more than 50,000 people have one. Some people will look at that and say, gee, that is not very many compared to Georgia, but, I have to add that I lived in California for 5 years, and I did not know a single person who even applied.

    It might be like NYC, where everybody thinks it is impossible to get a carry license, but statistics every year show that the vast majority are approved, something like 85-90%.

    Just the reputation can keep people from applying.
