You have it backwards!I understand that I may carry my handgun openly while in my truck but confused on if I stop for fuel or at a restarea? may I still carry it openly without a permit? and not get into trouble?
OH. I do understand no opencarry in vehicle if you don't have a permit. what I'm asking here is GA where you are permited to opencarry in a vehicle but I'm not sure on when you stop and get out of you'r vehicle?You have it backwards!
Ohio is a traditional open carry state. Recently, the Ohio legislature passed HB-12 over Governor Taft’s veto, thus preempting all local open carry bans even in Ohio’s “home rule” localities. Unfortunately, despite passage of HB-12, a permit to conceal is still required to openly carry a handgun in a vehicle.
Didn't look at the links did you?OH. I do understand no opencarry in vehicle if you don't have a permit. what I'm asking here is GA where you are permited to opencarry in a vehicle but I'm not sure on when you stop and get out of you'r vehicle?
the reson for me asking is I'm an OTR truck driver and live in FL. and there I can legally carry my handgun withouta permit if it's locked unloaded and incased and most time travel from FL. through GA up to OH,IN,IL., just want to know where I would be legal to open carry with out a permit until I get my FL. CCW.
didn't see it the first time but I did look at it now, it seem's I'll be doing a lot of stops every time I cross a state line, gun in the box,gun out of the box,gun back in the box. at least I'll feel safer at night in my sleeper cab.
There's your problem.confused ... I saw a video on youtube
Not so!There's your problem.
The only way to OC in GA without a permit is with a Long Gun.
...which we're not allowed to talk about here becasue OCDO does not beleive(sic) that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms applies to anything except handguns. I'd be glad to inform you futher, but it would get moderated. This might, too, seeing that Grapeshot already pointed you to multiple valid sources and you referenced YouTube and some person and some law and nothing of substance while acknowledgeing that it has no substance yet still putting it forward...
See what happened there?
OCDO is limited to the promotion and defense of RKBA via holstered handguns by design/intent. Quite obviously RKBA applies to more than handguns......just not fodder here.
A search through previous threads in this state's subforum would have given you a direct answer. Fallschirmjaeger gave a detailed one, with citation.well since my question has been unanseawered I'm going to asueme that it's not legal to opencarry on foot in GA without a permit witch IMO should not be that way.
Is there a reason why you cannot obtain a Florida carry license? (If I'm reading it correctly and you are from Fla.)bummer ok I guess I'll stop beating my head against the wall here.
We agree and we're workin' on it!chocofan said:I'm going to asueme that it's not legal to opencarry on foot in GA without a permit witch IMO should not be that way.
That has been a much discussed item. There really is no good reason.Yeah, apparently neither GA nor VA honor each others' permits. I wonder why? Must be training required in Virginia??
Having a loaded gun in your car without a permit in GA is fine. One of my friends there is an assistant DA in one of the counties. I specifically asked him about that and told him I would have a loaded pistol in my glovebox. He said that was fine. I could also bring it into the house if I wanted. I just couldn't carry off "my" (rental) property.I'm driving from VA to Tybee Island, GA today. I can open carry in NC and VA, except I am REQUIRED to open carry in my vehicle in NC, then once I get to SC it is REQUIRED to be in my glovebox, then once I get to GA it sounds like I must unload the gun, put it in a case, and I'm still researching to see if I can even move the gun from my truck to my beach house rental property. I honestly can't believe how stingy the carry laws are in SC/GA. I do not have my CHP yet.
