Court Dismisses Corps Case

In GCO’s case against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ ban on carrying firearms on their property, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Judge Harold Murphy presiding, has granted the Corps’ Motion to Dismiss. In ruling on the motion, Judge Murphy said that Corps property is a “sensitive place,” and that the Corps’ regulation does not burden the Second Amendment right as it relates to Army land. GCO is planning to appeal this decision. The order may be found here.

    I regularly work with the USACE on Lake Hartwell and consider them to be fine people and very supportive of our community. The problems we have here are with bone headed paper pushers at the Savannah District office who have no idea of what a close nit and patriotic community we are up here. Ditto for our sister lakes downstream. Your local corps rangers are sympathetic to our way of life and have no desire to interfere with your right to carry. So please respect the fact that they are charged to enforce federal law and the stupid edicts that flow like sewer sludge from District office. Your local rangers are here for you and will turn the lake upside down to aid you when the chips are down and life or property is on the line.

    I know it’s a different district but I would have thought that the following case would have been the precedence that was needed to win the case in Georgia.

    UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF IDAHO
    ELIZABETH E. MORRIS; and ALAN C. BAKER, v. U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, et al.
    Case No. 3:13-CV-00336-BLW
