Firm Challenges Constitutionality of Georgia Weapons Carry License Scheme
John Monroe Law, P.C. has filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Georgia weapons carry licensing scheme. The Georgia constitution forbids members of one branch of government from exercising the powers of another branch. Because the issuance of licenses is an executive function, it is unconstitutional for probate judges to issue those licenses. Because the licensing scheme is unconstitutional, the requirement to have a license to carry a weapon is also unconstitutional.
