    Hello to everyone. Let me say first that this is my first post on any forum really under any subject. No, I am not 10! I read them frequently but have never seen them to be usefull until myboyfriend began showing me the ones he is a member of. So props to you guys for having a user friendly and beneficial forum!!!

    Now, to get on with my questions: (1) Can an un-licensed but eligible to be licensed person who is not listed on the registration/insurance of a vehicle still carry in said vehicle when given express permission by the vehicle's owner? Real life example: My boyfriend holds the loan on the car that I primarily drive. We live together. However, it is registered and insured under his name. So in all technicality, it is his. Would it be considered an extension of my home, or does it fall under the statute that a non-licensed person cannot carry in another person's car? (2) If attending specific school functions (i.e. our daughter's concert) can a licensed carrier still bear arms at school? I know my boyfriend can drop/pick up our daughter, but what about being there for a different specific purpose? What if he would be leaving with our daughter after said event?

    Thanks for any light you may be able to shed on the subject. And thanks for fighting for our rights!

    Welcome to the board!

    I'm not familiar with Georgia vehicle carry, so I'll let another member answer your questions.

    Good luck, I hope you enjoy the OCDO community.

    I can't offer much help on the first one. That'd be a gray area of the law. I'd highly recommend getting your Georgia Firearms License so that you know you'd be legal.

    As for the second question...you would be breaking the law to carry you firearm in the car to a school function. the law states that you can carry while picking up / dropping off a student. Anything beyond that is illegal.

    To learn more about Georgia firearm laws, check out a couple of links. http://www.georgiacarry.org/ They are a grassroots organization to help protect our rights in Georgia. Also check http://georgiapacking.org/forum/ There are a lot of fine people with great information.

    No, it would be a felony, punishable by 10 years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
