New Georgia law will allow guns at public university tailgating events

Recommended Posts

Beginning July 1, a new law in the state of Georgia will allow fans with concealed firearm permits to carry handguns during tailgating events at public universities, but guns will still not be allowed inside athletic events.

As a result, University of Georgia chancellor Steve Wrigley addressed how the law would affect Bulldogs football games. There are six home contests slated for Sanford Stadium in 2017, beginning Sept. 2 against Appalachian State.

Wrigley wrote in a memo: “Whether you opposed or supported this legislation, it will soon be state law. …While current law already allows license-holders to keep weapons secured in motor vehicles, House Bill 280 will allow anyone who is properly licensed in the state of Georgia to carry a handgun in a concealed manner on property owned or leased by public colleges and universities with some exceptions. …It will not allow any other type of gun to be carried around campus; nor will it allow handguns to be carried openly.”
