    Concealed carry of an automatic knife in Georgia

    Florida has reciprocity with Georgia on concealed carry of firearms. What I can't find out is whether you can carry an automatic knife legally concealed in Georgia with a weapons permit/license. Anybody know for sure ?

    I'm not licensed to practice in Georgia. I did get this from a friend that does.
    Specifically illegal: automatics & throwing stars.

    I don't carry auto knives when I travel out of state. Hope this helps some.

    I don't think that you can, FLA's permit is a concealed WEAPONS permit, it isn't limited to just guns, many states only issue concealed gun permits. Visit GA's website for clarification

    This is the best I could do...a little like trying to decipher Florida statutes!

    O.C.G.A. § 16-11-126
    Carrying a concealed weapon


    (a) A person commits the offense of carrying a concealed weapon when such person knowingly has or carries about his or her person, unless in an open manner and fully exposed to view, any bludgeon, knuckles whether made from metal, thermoplastic, wood, or other similar material, firearm, knife designed for the purpose of offense and defense, or any other dangerous or deadly weapon or instrument of like character outside of his or her home or place of business, except as permitted under this Code section.

    (b) Upon conviction of the offense of carrying a concealed weapon, a person shall be punished as follows:

    (1) For the first offense, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor; and

    (2) For the second offense, and for any subsequent offense, he or she shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be imprisoned for not less than two years and not more than five years.

    (c) This Code section shall not permit, outside of his or her home, motor vehicle, or place of business, the concealed carrying of a pistol, revolver, or concealable firearm by any person unless that person has on his or her person a valid license issued under Code Section 16-11-129 and the pistol, revolver, or firearm may only be carried in a shoulder holster, waist belt holster, any other holster, hipgrip, or any other similar device, in which event the weapon may be concealed by the person's clothing, or a handbag, purse, attache case, briefcase, or other closed container. Any person having been issued a license to carry a concealed weapon pursuant to Code Section 16-11-129 shall be permitted to carry such weapon, subject to the limitations of this part, in all parks, historic sites, or recreational areas as defined by Code Section 12-3-10 and in all wildlife management areas.

    (d) This Code section shall not forbid the transportation of any firearm by a person who is not among those enumerated as ineligible for a license under Code Section 16-11-129, provided the firearm is enclosed in a case, unloaded, and separated from its ammunition.

    (e) This Code section shall not forbid any person who is not among those enumerated as ineligible for a license under Code Section 16-11-129 from transporting a loaded firearm in any private passenger motor vehicle.

    (f) On and after October 1, 1996, a person licensed to carry a handgun in any state whose laws recognize and give effect within such state to a license issued pursuant to this part shall be authorized to carry a handgun in this state, but only while the licensee is not a resident of this state; provided, however, that such license holder shall carry the handgun in compliance with the laws of this state.

    As a younger man I subscribed to quick witted philosophical wording, yet as I age I realize I knew nothing about that wording, wisdom truly comes from variations in one's life over periods of time, not from mirroring someone else's thoughts or words..

    milkmanjoe asks "Could a short shotgun be the answer to home defense?"

    Yes, I would think it would be the best defense, but you have to ask...is 4 inches worth 200 dollars. I think it is. I just pray to God that I never have to prove it. The SBS taken in to evidence by the local PD just seems to open a can of worms. Winchester makes a low recoil buckshot that is wonderful. PS ghost ring rear site with tritium front is kind of cool.

    Any more questions, take it to the class three thread.
