Have a quick question regarding firearms in GA. Today, I saw some armed security guards servicing an ATM at school (a state university). All of them had revolvers on their hips, one in a blue uniform, the others in polo shirt and slacks.. My question is are they legally allowed to carry a weapon on campus? If they are not law enforcement officers or retired LEOs, what allows them to carry a firearm on campus? Is there a permit or agreement somewhere that grants access? Thanks

So, if I started my own Private Security service, employing only one person (myself) and passed the background checks and qualified every year or whatever they require, I too can carry on a Campus or other places normally off-limits to the regular CCW holder?

I would be providing private security to myself. Could this be a loophole that hasn't been seen yet?

not to mention unless the laws have been changed you can only carry a .38 special with semi wadcutter ammunition. Thats the way it used to be at least

I wondered why most of the ATM guys I see carry revolvers. That's a weird law. Might be time for an update to that one.

it's been changed/amended to allow auto's

At the time it was told to me that the .38 swc was the easiest to ballistically trace. Kind of sounded like BS to me.

I think and was told that if you get a private investigator's license you can carry just about anywhere.

Again unless the law was changed the PI's could only carry 9mm. We all know .45 is way better

IANAL, however I am a Licensed Private Investigator by the state of Georgia and we can now carry up to a .45 Auto or a .357 revolver also we can carry all places except schools all the time. Security guards can carry the same calibers but they can only carry on the job and to and from work with no stops enroute.
The complete requirements for PI's and Security gurards are available at this website.
