GCO Files Supreme Court Brief in Atlanta Parks Ban Case

GCO has filed its opening brief in the Supreme Court of Georgia in an appeal of the orders of the Superior Court of Fulton County regarding GCO’s lawsuit against Fulton County municipalities for banning carrying firearms in parks.  State law prohibits cities from regulating the carrying of firearms “in any manner.”   In the orders, the Superior Court dismissed GCO’s case against Roswell and Sandy Springs after Roswell and Sandy Springs amended their ordinances to ban carrying firearms to a public gathering instead of in a city park.  The Superior Court ruled in GCO’s favor on some of GCO’s claims against Atlanta, but then ended the case without considering GCO’s other claims.  GCO is appealing all three orders, seeking reversal of the judgments in favor or Roswell and Sandy Springs and seeking to have the case against Atlanta continue on GCO’s remaining claims.  The documents may be viewed here.
