Corps Says Ga. Gun Bill Does Not Affect Its Property

May 19, 2014

Georgia’s House Bill 60, or the Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014, signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal, April 23 and effective July 1, does not affect lakes and lands in Georgia managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

That is according to a statement issued last week by Corps officials.

House Bill 60 specifies where Georgia residents can carry weapons.

The Corps said property it manages is regulated by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 36, part 327.

Corps officials said regulations governing possession of firearms specify that possession of loaded firearms, ammunition or loaded projectile firing devices is prohibited unless in the possession of federal, state or local law enforcement officers, or when being used in compliance with hunting regulations.
