    Gun in Fulton County CourtHouse

    Well..., I do NOT know The Specifics, BUT I do know that those Charges hold NO Weight in a Georgia CourtRoom.

    Someone needs to Educate those Fulton County Deputies, as Carrying a Concealed Weapon and Deadly Weapons to or while at Public Gatherings have been Repealed!

    Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies charged Mr. Preston Tyler Pike, 29, of Smyrna, with carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a weapon to a public gathering, officials said.
    While there are no more 'Public Gatherings', there are still unauthorized locations. The charge will be amended by the District Attorney's Office.


    Gun at Fulton County Courthouse and Man attempts to pass through security with firearm.
    Unless exempted by 16-11-130, once he passed over the threshold he was in violation of the law.

    * By a strange quirk of the law, had he gone through security with a 16.5 inch barreled rifle, he would not have been in violation of the law...........................technically.

    I know that Those Charges will be Amended..., but Those Deputies should know The Law. There is NO such Charge in Georgia as 'Carrying a Concealed Weapon'. There is NO such Charge in Georgia as 'Deadly Weapon to or while at Public Gathering', either.

    *** Additionally..., Georgia Law Exempts 'Handguns' and 'Longguns' which Discharge a Shot of Equal to, or less than, .46 Centimeters in Diameter. ***

    *** Also..., Georgia Law Authorizes 3 more Exceptions to Georgia Code 16-11-127, under Subparagraphs (1) through (3) of Subsection (d) of That Code Section. ***

    True, but since none of those three provisions applied to the case mentioned, I thought it would have been stupid for me to even bring them up.
