I think they did get rid of the public gathering law in GA where a public gathering was two or more people meeting in public such as a shopping mall or store.
    I guess you have a point there.

    The "Public Gathering" law has been repealed since June of 2010. Georgia also has state pre-emption on gun laws so the local "yokels" won't be passing any laws to - as FN puts it - trip you up. There are local ordinances regarding discharge of your weapon - most of which have an exemption for self-defense...

    I thought that it had been repealed, thank goodness. I remember reading about some judges intepretations of what a public gathering was and am sure it was not what the legislature intended when it originally passed that law. As for local laws on discharging your firearm there are many cities and towns in SC, and probably other states that have a law against discharging a weapon inside the city limits. If you read the law you realize that it makes no exception for self-defense, LEO, or any other person or reason. It also includes bow and arrow, slingshot and any other similar item. Since this law requires selective enforcement and depends on other laws to override it then it is non-enforceable. If charged you would probably have to take it on up the line to higher courts but there is no way that it can be legitimate law and enforced. I would point that out to the city council but then they may change it to something that is enforceable.

    I must be over-stimulated. All this "economic stimulus" is making me dizzy.

  7. Hearing Scheduled for H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011

    Friday, September 09, 2011


    For months we have been reporting on a critically important bill: H.R. 822—the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011. This vital NRA-backed legislation, introduced earlier this year by Congressmen Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) will enable millions of permit holders to exercise their right to self-defense while traveling outside their home states.

    Thanks to much hard work and action taken by NRA and our members, H.R. 822 has now garnered 242 cosponsors in the U.S. House. On Tuesday, September 13, the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security will hold a hearing on the bill.

    Well, he's made many worse decisions and still seems to garner a large base of supporters.
