Georgia’s New Right To Carry Law Starts Today

July 1, 2008:  Georgia’s new right to Carry Law goes into effect and there already seems confusion over the law.  The Mayor of Atlanta has declared the airport a gun free zone which appears to be in violation of the new law.  Although Federal law covers the airport security check points and beyond, the local laws control in the baggage and check in areas.

Georgia’s new law specifically allows for the ability to carry firearms in any area of public transportation which would include the airport.
