Georgia allows any person to openly carry a handgun if the person has a “weapons carry” license.1 Georgia also allows any person to openly carry a long gun.2 In fact, if a long gun is carried while it is loaded, it must be carried openly.3

See our Open Carrying of Firearms in Public policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
