WV CCW With GA Driver's License

642 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  BG_Atl
I am a happy transplant to Duluth, GA. Been here 1.5 years.

I have a valid Georgia driver's license. I also have a valid, official, Concealed Carry Permit from my origin state of West Virginia. It expires in 2020.

May I legally conceal carry in GA with my WV CCP?

Not as a Georgia resident. The short exemption period has passed. You need a Georgia weapons carry license now
Sorry to say the answer to that one is no...
O.C.G.A.§ 16-11-126
(e) (1) (A) Any person licensed to carry a weapon in any other state whose laws recognize and give effect to a license issued pursuant to this part shall be authorized to carry a weapon in this state, but only while the licensee is not a resident of this state;

Although we did get a grace period passed - it only extends 90 days

Go..... go get your GWCL ASAP !
