Metro Atlanta Chamber weighs in on Georgia gun carry law

Client(s) Metropolitan Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

Jones Day argued on behalf of the Metro Atlanta Chamber that Georgia's 2014 'guns everywhere' law should not be interpreted to strip private businesses leasing public property of the right to exclude guns from their premises. The Georgia Court of Appeals amicus brief demonstrated that a contrary ruling would adversely affect businesses throughout Georgia, including residential apartment complexes, day-care centers, law firms, performance venues, and even major sport stadiums. v. Atlanta Botanical Garden, Inc., No. A17A1639 (Ga. App.)
