    GEORGIA - Open Carry Laws

    As a Georgia resident, clean record, and I also have a GA "CCW" permit...

    But what about "Open Carry"?

    Any of my fellow Georgians actually know that GA statute/law?

    Do I need an open carry permit?

    Where can I open carry in a mall?

    Your permit is good for open or concealed.

    Can I "open carry" in these Georgia Locations? :


    -Gas Station - pump, then go inside to pay?
    -Target?
    -Walmart?
    -Home Depot?
    -Applebee's/Chili's/Friday's/Long Horn's - assuming I'm not drinking alcohol at these places?
    -Walking downtown Atlanta on the sidewalk in the middle of the city?

    Join GPDO and GCO already.

    You can legally open carry anywhere you can legally concealed carry. I have OC'd at the following places when I lived in Georgia:
    Wal Mart, Target, Quicktrip, The Original Pancake House, Piedmont Park, Freedom Park, The Vortex, Kroger, Publix, Waffle House, downtown Atlanta, all around Midtown, Roswell, Alpharetta. If there is a gunbuster posted, you probably shouldn't do it. In fact, I do not frequent any business that chooses to disarm me as a matter of their policy unless I absolutely have to.

    Hell, I went to OC breakfasts and other events as well. You can drink while OCing. I've done it socially, gotten some flack, but my rule is this: If I'm drinking socially, I carry and drive. If I'm drinking and celebrating with friends, I don't carry and I don't drive. A little bit of common sense goes a long way in life.

    If a business does take issue with you OCing, all they can ask you to do is leave. If you don't immediately, they can charge you with trespassing. I did, however, always carry one of these on me. Never hurts to have an impartial witness.

    Honesty Mark, for someone who's been such a longtime gunowner, I'm a bit surprised.
