Campus Carry in Georgia Takes Effect July 1st

( - The law states that weapons must be carried in a concealed manner, “in such a fashion that does not actively solicit the attention of others, and is not prominently, openly, and intentionally displayed except for purposes of defense of self or others.” The law applies to licensed Georgia gun owners who have obtained a permit to carry a concealed handgun and those from states with reciprocal gun laws.

Weapons are not to be carried in buildings or property used for intercollegiate athletic events, specifically stadiums, gymnasiums, and similar facilities. This exemption applies to these facilities at all times, not only when athletic events are taking place.

Weapons will be allowed in tailgating areas outside of the sports facility, and in student recreation centers and similar facilities not used for intercollegiate games.

Weapons will not be allowed in faculty, staff, or administrative offices, including office suites, but will be allowed in hallways or common areas adjacent to an office that are not a part of the office or suite. Similarly, weapons are not allowed in preschool or childcare spaces, including any enclosed outdoor facilities separated by controlled access, but will be allowed in hallways, common lobby areas, or spaces adjacent to preschool or childcare spaces that are outside of the controlled access point and outside spaces that are not enclosed.
