+1

It shouldn't be illegal in the first place, but if you hide it, they DON'T find it!!!

I thought it was legal to carry on campuses at which you yourself do not attend school. Is that incorrect? For instance, if I went to UGA, I could carry at GSU. I must be wrong.

Since it was just sitting on the bed in plain view, he's just lucky the maid didn't steel it. Then we he reported it stolen, got arrested as well.

I think some of yall are being a little hard on the guy, yes , if he had took it with him it could have saved him a lot of problems, but lets say that he had laid it on the bed and then went to the bathroom to take a shit ,and the maid came in and saw the gun , would you still say that he is a dumbass ???

They named the conference center after a dog?




I guess a dog is a step above a politician.

kblagg - Could you tell me what ya'll consider "a locked compartment in a motor vehicle" ?

Personally, I'd consider that to be a locked glove compartment or a locking gun case inside the vehicle or a locked trunk. Right?

Is it adequate to just have the passenger area (compartment) of the vehicle locked if there is a firearm in an unlocked console, glove box, or case inside?

I know you're not a lawyer, I'd just like to hear the law enforcement opinion, if you don't mind. I'm talking non-students of course and am just wondering about the provisions associated with that particular "locked compartment" phrase.

Is it a bad law? I'd say absolutely it is, if for no other reason than the fact that a student could be arrested on a felony charge for having a paintball gun, the way I read it.

I know of one judge / prosecutor in Twiggs County that threw out / refused to prosecute an arrest for having a firearm in a high school's parking lot because he said that the car was locked and that is a locked container. This was in the 1994 - 1999 time frame. Your mileage may vary.
