Georgia Gun Laws

Georgia gun laws for a concealed carry license require a person to be at least 21 years old or 18 if they are a member of the military. Applications are handled at the county level and filed with the Probate Court in the county of residence. No license is needed to carry a firearm in a person’s home, vehicle, place of business, while fishing or hunting, or unloaded in a case. Interestingly, there is an ordinance in Kennesaw City, GA that states that all homeowners must own a firearm, although it is unlikely enforced.

Preemption

 

Georgia has full preemption for gun laws. Local authorities are prohibited from enacting any ordinances that regulate the transportation, ownership and possession of firearms. They are also prohibited from placing any restrictions on local parks, offices and gun ranges.

Several local authorities have placed restrictions on firearms in direct violation of the law. These have been gradually withdrawn over the years due to court rulings.
