GCO Settles With Coweta County Over Parks Ban

GCO has settled its long-standing case against Coweta County for banning firearms in county parks.  GCO originally lost the case in Coweta County Superior Court, but the Court of Appeals of Georgia reversed the lower court, ruling that the county was prohibited from regulating carrying firearms “in any manner” and that it was error for the lower court to have ruled otherwise.  On remand, the Superior Court granted GCO’s motion for summary judgment (in which GCO sought a declaration that the ordinance was preempted and an injunction against Coweta County from enforcing it).  Coweta County repealed its ordinance and agreed to pay GCO’s attorney’s fees and costs.
