Georgia has no law regulating gun shows or requiring background checks on gun purchasers at gun shows. In addition, Georgia law explicitly prohibits any county or municipal corporation, by zoning or by ordinance, resolution, or other enactment, from regulating gun shows in any manner.1

See the Georgia Private Sales section for state laws that may apply to firearm sales at gun shows.

See our Gun Shows policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
