    Hello All,
    A hoosier Glocker here whose daughter is an elementary teacher in GA. She has had Indiana carry permit for 5 years.
    Question. If she obtains a GA permit is it LEGAL to leave gun in car in school parking lot in GA?
    Thanks for your help.

    ok, I have read it and will re-read it. Anything in particular you are concerned about that I might miss?

    She is unable to leave it in her car.
    As a parent, I can carry while in the act of picking my kid up from school. But can not carry to school functions.
    My wife is an elementary school teacher, whenever I go to visit her, I will park down the street outside the NO GUN ZONE and walk.

    IANAL
    But reading the code, because she is a teacher at the school in question, according to O.C.G.A 16-11-127.1(c)(17), she is allowed to have it in her vehicle "provided that any such weapon is in a locked compartment of a motor vehicle or one which is in a locked container in or a locked firearms rack which is on a motor vehicle".

    Although knowing the left leanings of a lot in education, I would not let it be known. Just because she is legally allowed to have a weapon in her car in a locked container, that still won't help her if someone finds out and her "contract doesn't get renewed". If you know what I mean. Also,if the school resource officer finds out and makes a stink about it she may take a ride due to lack of knowledge of the law.

    BTW, I am PRO LEO and PRO Education. My father was an LEO (he recently passed), and my mother is a retired school teacher. I also work for an institute of higher learning, so I am not trying to bash LEOs or School teachers, just trying to stress the fact that it is legal for her to have a weapon locked in her car, but don't tell anyone about it. Kinda like Clinton's Don't ask don't tell policy :whistling:

    I agree totally, not to bash any group, but unfortunately there are those that are either ignorant of the law or have an agenda against citizens protecting themselves. :faint:
    But yes keep it on the "down low" because in that environment people will tend to think you are a bit off your rocker for being pro 2A.
