    Suppose you carry your firearm into this church, Perimeter Church in Johns Creek.
    You do not have permission from the church. mLet's assume NO private citizen (without law-enforcement or Public Safety credentials)
    has ever been given permission to carry in this church.

    But you carry anyway, figuring it's worth the legal risk.
    What exactly *are* the risks of carrying your handgun into this church
    when you do have a weapons carry permit
    which is valid everywhere else in Georgia but not here in this building?

    What kind of penalties and loss of rights would you be facing
    if you were prosecuted?

    P.S. I'll tell you up front, it's something of a trick question.
    So if you're up to a challenge, see if you can figure out the trick and incorporate that into your answer.

    Don't carry open in an Uncle Mike's holster and you shouldn't have a problem.

    I don't know why this is even a question. Used to be (late 1800s, 1900s) the circuit pastor would take off his guns, lay them over the pulpit and preach. His long gun would probably be leaning against the pulpit. Read a great article from Hillsdale College about bringing your guns to church and how we got to this mentality.

    Penalty by law? $100 fine

    Is the church also a school?

    Assume a regular handgun, not some short barreled rifle, not an AR pistol with a brace, a 14 inch barrel, an optic, and a 30 round magazine.
    Not a sub machine gun or select-fire pistol.
    Nor a stolen gun. Not a gun with the serial number ground off.

    Thank God-literally-I don't go to that church, or any like it. Looks like an enormous waste of other peoples resources stolen in the name of God to enrich certain other people and do little to further the Kingdom. What do I win? :D
