  1. She had the pistol in her purse outside the building, so she also violated:
    GA Code 16-11-126 PART 3 – CARRYING AND POSSESSION OF FIREARMS
    (h) (1) No person shall carry a weapon without a valid weapons carry license unless he or she meets one of the exceptions to having such license as provided in subsections (a) through (g) of this Code section.
    (2) A person commits the offense of carrying a weapon without a license when he or she violates the provisions of paragraph (1) of this subsection.

    It’s doubtful she met any exception (a) through (g). Will RCSO charge her with carrying without a license or will she get a pass for trying to comply by applying for a carry license?
