Gun License Laws in Georgia
Gun licensing laws in Georgia can be confusing. If you have been charged with violating gun laws by not having a license, it is important that you contact an experienced attorney right away. Being charged with a gun-related crime can be terrifying and stressful, but the right attorney will make sure that your case has a great defense so that you can walk away with the best outcome possible.
Georgia CCW License Requirements
In order to obtain a Georgia concealed carry license (CCW), there are a certain number of factors that must be met. First, a person must be at least 21 years old, or 18 if he or she is a military member. You must also be a U.S. citizen or lawful alien, must not have had your license revoked in the past three years and must be a resident of the county you filed the application in. The permit will be valid for five years, and 33 states honor Georgia’s CCW license.
