Would this allow someone who owns an establishment that is a "public gathering" to allow carry? My thinking is that an appointed person provides security for a gathering and they permit a firearm "secured to your person." This could be a bouncer at a bar, a church usher, the hostess of a restaurant. Any place that is pro-carry. (I believe this is also why bringing your firearm to a gun-show isn't illegal. A gun-show is definately a public gathering, but they have security at the door that checks you in.)d) It is an affirmative defense to a violation of this Code section if a person notifies a law enforcement officer or other person employed to provide security for a public gathering of the presence of such item as soon as possible after learning of its presence and surrenders or secures such item as directed by the law enforcement officer or other person employed to provide security for a public gathering."
Just a thought. I know most places aren't so pro-carry as to explictly allow firearms, but some might be.
