Gov. Perdue signs HB89!
Way to go GA.
link to the actual bill?
Cliffs: HB89 allows GFL holders to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol (you just cant drink there). It also allows carry in state parks and on Marta transit/public transportation.
oh, and I just saw on TV some stupid fuck saying that HB89 was going to be effective immediately.
To other Georgians who havent been keeping up with this, July 1st is when HB89 officially hits the OCGA books.
fucking media trying to set us up
oh, in other words nothing special... just bringing it more inline with other states?
Well yeah, but it's an important step for CCWers that live in Georgia.
Without HB89 there were tons of loop holes to allow many counties and such to forbid concealed carry in state/county parks. Now it's law, saying it's ok.
The restaurant industry is about to go ape shit tho.... I can already see "no gun" stickers posted up all over some of my favorite places.
does the ga bill require you to follow posted signs?
In oregon the answer is no. They can ask me to leave if they find out i'm carrying (or for any other reason) and I have to comply otherwise face the consequences of trespass.... but if they don't ask me specificially to leave, I don't have to follow normal signage against weapons (except in places listing in ORS as prohibited)
It's the same here.
cant wait to see what will be on the news tonight
so now if i go to eat in georgia i'll be able to carry. now we just need tennessee to pass it
im trying to remember which state it is, georgia or tennessee. in one of them you can carry if you've been drinking, but you cant discharge it. the other one you cannot carry if you've been drinking. i think in georgia you can carry if you've been drinking but it breaks the law if you fire it
I'd give up drinking beer when I go out to dinner so that I could carry
Way to go GA
Oh and in TN you can't carry if you've been drinking. I posted the law a few weeks ago and I'm too lazy to search for it again. But it basically says that you can't carry if you are under the influence period.
then its georgia. the way the law is written it says you cannot discharge a firearm in georgia if you are under the influence. it does not say anything about possession. tennessee's law says you cannot possess a firearm while under the influence
HB89 was signed into law today, but doest not go into the books in the OCGA until JULY 1st. Coming across state lines and carrying your firearm into a restaurant that serves alcohol will result in you being arrested.
The news stations got it wrong when they said it went into effect immediately. It takes a little while for newly signed bills to be written into the OCGA. Thus, without an exact number there is theoretically no law.
i hope that wasnt directed towards me
anyone really. Hate for someone to stroll into the Crapplebee's and get fucked over b/c they got a little too anxious. lol
id be more worried that the person cannot comprehend an article that specifically states the law doesnt begin until July 1 than the trouble they'd get into with police
