Leadership of GCO

If you are new to GeorgiaCarry.Org, Inc. (“GCO”), GCO is a nonprofit corporation registered with the Georgia Secretary of State on February 9, 2007 (View GCO’s corporate registration). Unlike some of the anti-gun organizations operating in Georgia that pretend to be made up of a local membership, GCO has actual dues-paying members (you!) that show up and fight for the right to keep and bear arms.
