Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This is the General Assembly's 2016 omnibus gun carry legislation, making many revisions to current statute. Among its provisions, the bill addresses fairness in financial transactions with firearms dealers; honors out-of-state gun licenses in Georgia for 90 days for those that move here; allows hunters and fishermen to carry knives; revises school safety zone carry; allows probate courts to distribute gun safety information; addresses the suspension of a carry application; renewing licenses; exempting certain law enforcement officers from license requirements and allowing carry in a courthouse; carrying weapons at a commercial service airport; and appealing the denial of a license to those declared mentally incompetent.       

The provision which would have made it impossible to prohibit weapons in government buildings leased to third parties (e.g. arenas, football domes, baseball fields, concert halls, etc.) was removed from the bill.
