What Happens If You Are Caught Carrying Without A Permit
In Georgia, it is illegal to carry a concealed gun without a permit. Even with a permit, it is illegal to enter certain places such as government buildings and schools.
First-time offenders face misdemeanor charges, punishable by large fines and up to one year in prison. If this is not your first offense, you may be charged with a felony and be sentenced to up to five years in prison.
Convicted felons are stripped of many civil liberties, including the right to vote and the right to possess firearms. Even after serving your time, you will have a permanent mark on your criminal record. Having a felony conviction on your record will make it hard to find a job or housing.
If you were caught carrying a concealed weapon as a convicted felon, you will be charged with a felony and the possible fines and prison sentences will be increased.
