    Georgia Laws: 2008 Ga. Laws 802
    Effective Date: July 1, 2008
    Summary: 1B 89 revises many of Georgia's gun laws. Under the new
    law, it is no longer a crime for individuals with a valid firearms license
    to carry a gun in a public park, on public transportation, or into many
    restaurants that serve alcohol. For those without a firearms license, but
    are eligible to receive one, the law expands car carry rights and
    shortens the timeframes for probate court judges to issue firearms
    licenses. The law also addresses many other areas of Georgia's code
    related to gun regulation by criminalizing straw purchases, increasing
    constable carry rights, and expanding civil tort immunity to
    organizations working under the direction of a state agency during a
    state  of  em ergency  ............................................................................................ 1

    also introducing penalties for spectators who are caught attending
    dogfights  ....................................................................................................   3 1
