Weapon Permits in Georgia

In the state of Georgia, laws regarding buying guns are much looser than in other states. You do not need a permit just to buy a firearm. However, in order to carry this gun on your person, whether that means openly or hidden, you are required to have a permit. This does not apply to inside your house or business or even your motor home, where you can keep guns of any variety.

Types of Georgia Gun Crimes

Despite the fact that it might seem that Georgia has more lenient laws regarding keeping guns at home, it has much stricter laws with regards to carrying and using these guns. As a result, there are many harsh penalties for breaking a gun law, even if it was a first and only occurrence, or mistake or miscommunication.

The wide variety of gun crimes within Georgia include:

  • Possessing any firearms that are illegal
  • Selling a firearm that is classified as illegal
  • Holding a gun somewhere on your person or property while on parole or probation
  • Possessing a firearm that has a changed serial number
  • Possessing a stolen firearm
  • Possessing a concealed weapon without proper license or permit
  • Committing a different crime but using or possessing a firearm during the process
  • Possessing a firearm by a convicted felon/person facing domestic violence charges
  • Theft of a firearm

What Are the Penalties for Gun Crimes?

While no one wants to be charged with any crime in the state of Georgia, some of the most severe are those involving weapons. This is because most crimes involving weapons are felony charges, which means that if you are charged, you could face a lifetime of painful consequences. These include long prison sentences, large fines, probation and more. Penalties depend on the type of weapon possessed by the defendant, their intention, their exact behavior, and even their prior criminal record.
