Earlier this week I wrote about how we need to be in Condition Orange during the current pandemic. As part of this I posted a copy of the federal and Georgia state laws that apply to declarations of emergency. A GeorgiaCarry member read this and pointed out that Section 8 of the Georgia law had been changed in 2014 to read:
(8) Suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transportation of alcoholic beverages, explosives, or combustibles; provided, however, that for purposes of this paragraph, the terms “explosives” and “combustibles” shall not include firearms or ammunition or any component thereof; and
This allows personal sales in addition to FFL sales, and was due in a large part to the work of my friends at GeorgiaCarry.org.
So I have corrected the copies of the law posted. If you got the one from the previous post, please discard it and use this one.
