Fulton County May Repeal

Fulton County is considering a new ordinance at its March 19, 2008 meeting.  The ordinance that currently bans guns and violates state preemption law is expected to be changed to:

Section 50-38.  Discharge of Firearms and Possession of Other Weapons Prohibited.
No person shall discharge within any Fulton County park or recreational facility any firearm as defined by O.C.G.A. § 16-11-171, including but not limited to rifles, pistols, shotguns, BB guns, or pellet guns. No person shall use or possess within any Fulton County park or recreational facility any bow and arrow, slingshot, or any other device (other than a firearm as defined above) capable of throwing any projectile of any sort, including the hand throwing of rocks or stones intended to be used as weapons.  This section shall not be operative in any specific area now designated or to be designated in the future as a rifle range, archery range, or any other specific area whose purpose is to allow the activities otherwise prohibited by this section.

GCO will continue to keep you informed of further developments.
