    Reading the post about Banks county and the license showing up in an envelope by itself got me thinking. I received my license last October from Cherokee county. In the envelope was a few letters explaining some things to me, including a notice that if anything about me has changed that would prevent me from having the license that the license would be invalid.

    On to my question. On the very bottom on the back of my license (which is almost entirely GA code 16.11.127), in bold upper case it says: "PER ORDER: LICENSE IS SUSPENDED IF ARRESTED AFTER ISSUE DATE."

    Is this normal?

    No. It also is not the law. There is a provision for revoking a license if the holder becomes ineligible. A revocation requires notice and a hearing. A summary suspension is not in the code. Also, an arrest generically would not even make someone ineligible. A charge (like from a DA or solicitor) for certain crims would make someone ineligible.

    Mine only list 16.11.127, sounds like a job for GCO :)

    I don't think its an issue for GCO...unless an arrest occurs and a suspension happens that is contrary to law. I suppose they (THEY) can print whatever they want on the license.

    Any other Cherokee residents with this...uh...unique license?

    Can you scan the offending language for us to see?

    Here is an example of DeKalbs finest in action:

    The white part in the middle is an artifact of my crappy flash photography skills.

    I think one of those morons just typed it out. Note the spelling, bad puncutation, @ sign and lines that are cut off. I waited how many months for this shabby ass 3rd grade project?

    And it's not even the correct language from the statute at that! :shock:

    It is missing from subsection (b) "Nothing in this code section shall otherwise prohibit the carrying of a firearm in any other public place by a person licensed or permitted to carry such firearm by this part".

    To me that is the most important part of that code section. It shows any idiot cop or DA that carrying in a public place does not equate to carrying at a public gathering. I have had idiot cops tell me that every public place is a public gathering and thus off-limits. I reply then what good is the license, then I whip it out and show them the last sentence in subsection b and then I observe the dumbfounded look upon their faces.

    Also subsection (d) the affirmative defense language is also missing.

    That statement has no business being there.
