    It's a state authority which receives no taxpayer funding.
    Should be an interesting case.

    Exactly. It's NOT private property. And it's NOT the General Assembly. Being neither of those things, Stone Mountain Park cannot ban firearms.

    GCO has prevailed in every preemption case they have filed.

    There's no reason to think the winning streak will end here.

    I guess it's up to the Judge.
    I think Centennial Olympic park has a similar setup.
    I don't think alcohol is permitted inside the park.

    It'd be a good idea to carry to the Laser Show at Stn Mtn.

    A motivated nutcase with an assault rifle and a spider hole up on the mountain could do some damage.
    Thousands of hoopleheads on the Great Lawn looking up.:noes:

    The laser show used to be that way, I doubt it is now. I haven't been in years and can only assume that they no longer play the "Dixie" song at the end where they trace the carving with the laser.

    I doubt it would happen.
    Every once in a while I play the "How would I kill everyone" game in my head.
    Only my wife knows I do it.

    The laser show is much more family oriented now, sure there are some "rednecks" as most would term but it is totally not somewhere where you'd feel unsafe. Mostly just tons of kids, buckets of chicken, covert drinking. handjobs, and fingerbangin under blankets and stuff :mamoru:. I don't think being able to carry at the laser show is the catalyst for this lawsuit.

    I trail run around the mountain about once a week and would not mind being able to carry in my backpack. I don't carry my wallet, keys, or phone but I still worry about getting held up or something. I get pretty far back and concealed in the woods at some points. I think it's the same sort of deal as hiking/running in the state and natl parks.

    Are you referring to the fact that joggers do not get robbed/mugged/killed/raped/etc?

    I am not sure if you are being sarcastic or what. Stone Mountain, Georgia is not one the safest of places in the world. A few years ago one of the old ladies that sells vehicle passes was killed in an armed robbery at one of the entrance gates of the park. I am not even going into all the shit that happens in the City of Stone Mountain. In all the parking lots inside the park it is clearly posted to not leave any valuables in your car. I wouldn't be surprised at all to hear of a mugging/rape/assault on one of the trails in the park. I don't worry about myself that much but would never let my girlfriend or sister run the trails by themselves.

    Several months ago we had a female hiker that was kidnapped/raped/decapitated in a State Park just north of Atlanta. The suspect was apprehended and has been connected to several other murders of hikers in the region.

    Helps to keep you aware of things in a situation. There's tons of places where people are extremely vulnerable and don't realize it.

    This is true. Stone Mountain is surrounded by wannabee hood rats now.

    I go to Arabia Mountain now. It's much cooler. And no people. Great place to take the dogs.
