    16-11-126. Possession and Carrying a Concealed Weapon; Penalty for Violating Licensing Requirement.

    16-11-126(d) Any Person who is not Prohibited by Law from Possessing a Handgun or Long Gun who is Eligible for a Weapons Carry License may Transport a Handgun or Long Gun in any Private Passenger Motor Vehicle; provided, however, that Private Property Owners or Persons in Legal Control of Property through a Lease, Rental Agreement, Licensing Agreement, Contract, or any other Agreement to Control Access to such Property shall have The Right to Forbid Possession of a Weapon or Long Gun on Their Property, except as provided in Code Section 16-11-135.

    Georgia Code 16-11-129(b) Enumerates The Georgia Weapons Carry Licensing Requirements.

    Georgia Code 16-11-135 is The Firearms in Locked Private Passenger Motor Vehicles Law, which, Authorizes any Person to have a Firearm in a Locked Private Passenger Motor Vehicle while at Work, regardless of where you work, except for certain Secure Facilities.

    *** You could also put an Unloaded Handgun in a Case, if you do not have a Georgia Weapons Carry License, in Accordance with Georgia Code 16-11-126(c). Under Georgia Law, Unloaded, as for Firearms, means that there is NO Live Round of Ammuniton in The Barrel or Chamber. Merely Inserting a Loaded Clip or Magazine in The Clip or Magazine Well, but NOT Barreling or Chambering such Ammuniton, DOES NOT Constitute Loaded..., BUT..., then again, this Definition ONLY Exsists under Georgia Code 16-11-132(a). Georgia Code 16-11-125.1 gives Definitions for The Entire Part, however; Georgia Code 16-11-132 ONLY Applies to that Specific Code SEction itself, which; is more likely than not Inaaplicable to you as I would Assume, in Good Faith, that you are not a Person who is less than 18 Years in Age. ***

    *** Furthermore, under Georgia Code 16-11-125.1(1), Handgun has a VERY SPECIFIC Definition, and Apparently, .17 Caliber Handguns DO NOT Apply, since they Shoot a Shot of Less than .46 Centimeters in Diameter, but there has been No Court Case to Establish Case Law on this Matter, as Georgia Code 16-11-125.1 was Enacted in 2010. ***

    *** LongGuns in Private Passenger Motor Vehicles for Purposes other than Hunting is Perfectly Legal in Georgia, however; Hunting Regulations can get Tricky if you Intend The LongGuns for Hunting Purposes. ***

    *** Georgia is Unique among States in that Private Passenger Motor Vehicle Carry is Assumed Legal if you are a Person who is also Assumed Legal to Qualify for a Georgia Weapons Carry License, regardless if you have one or not. In MANY other States in this Country, you Actually have to have a Tangible Permit to Carry a Firearm in a Vehicle. ***
