    Question Minor open/conceal carry on private property

    I am 15 years old and I am a huge gun advocate. I am the founder and president of a non-profit called The Robot Shop. It is a hackerspace style workshop for teens to learn about robotics. The Robot Shop owns the property. It is in Georgia. I was wondering if I can open and/or conceal carry on the property since it is in a very bad part of Atlanta and we have had a couple people break in. I do not own the property, but I am the founder and president of the company that does. The entire staff at the robot shop is fine with guns, some of them open carry themselves. I know I am young to be doing all this so you don't need to say that. Please let me know if it is legal or not in Georgia. Thanks

    Based on the above, it really is a question of who controls the property. If it is owned by a 501(c)3, then the acting ranking ADULT member of the location would have the authority to grant you leave to carry. Because you are on private property owned by the organization, you fall under the jurisdiction of the ranking adult "representative" of the organization.

    A little common sense is necessary here as well - if its private property and the staff is fine with it, who is going to call the cops on you?

    Why wait? Gun can be available, such as under the counter.

    That and a muzzle loader or two single shot derringers in hand are better than none when the SHTF.

    Note: state specific question - moved to Georgia sub-forum.

    Also, 0.46 cm is 0.1811 inches, an awfully small ball.
