how many of you in GA Open Carry, and how many out of State do the same?
This might be helpful to you,OpenCarry.org - A Right Unexercised is a Right Lost!Personally, I prefer concealed. I would OC if it were generally accepted. The last time I OC'd was at the First Annual Georgia Carry Convention, last summer. Much like others, I'm really am not interested in stirring the pot. I don't need the attention. I'm content knowing I've got what I need when I need it.
What I'd really like to see is more businesses, restaurants, etc. that condone OC. I would go out of my way (and do at times) to patronize those establishments for their support. I think it would send a message to those that are fearful of firearms, giving them the notion that we that do carry (concealed or open) do so not to intimidate, or be arrogant, but to exercise our belief in the Second Amendment, as well as to provide for our own safety.
Can you imagine a couple of hundred places (say in the Atlanta/Metro area) that encouraged OC? How many of us would frequent those places on a regular basis? I know I would. There's something very comforting about being in a place full of men and women that are carrying firearms, and, as far as I'm concerned, those places are probably the safest places to be.
I've seen a map on Google that shows a handful of places that support Georgia Carry, but it shows mainly places off limits. There are a handful of places shown that are gun friendly, but I'd like to see a map with just the friendly establishments.
For the time being, I'll keep mine concealed while I'm out in public. Not everybody I come in contact with needs to know.
In general south carolina does not allow OC,but in the case you mentioned is possible but I would double check on that to be safe.YO-SAM thanks for the link but not sure of the accuracy. SC will allow you to OC IF going to and from range or hunting, link says NO. Also Ga states you can OC in your car but from what I've read on the Ga. State web site, ONLY "UNLOADED". I would ask ALL to review ALL State web sites they plan to carry in and become familiar with.
TWO ROUND BURSTS / EVALUTAE / REPEAT IF NECESSARY
If i`m not mistaken we can eat in most restaurants in the atlanta area without any problems.I agree we need to form a club that meets on a regular basis.I`m in.How many of us are in the atlanta area that can do breakfast/lunch/dinner sometime? Lets see how many places we can find that welcome open carry.
Any takers? Anybody?
Restaurants that support firearm carry would not be a problem for this activity.We would only gather in those places that support our rights, and there are a few.gotta be careful with a "club". I have thought and would really like to join a "gun Club" sorrta speak but the problem I forsee in GA unless there is an exception would be the PG law. If said group is open to the Public and you meet at said restaraunt wouldnt that be a PG?
I can do it, depending on the day. I'm in Atlanta four days a week, but those days alternate sometimes.How many of us are in the atlanta area that can do breakfast/lunch/dinner sometime? Lets see how many places we can find that welcome open carry.
