11th Circuit Rules No Reason to Detain for Carrying

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia’s ruling dismissing GCO’s lawsuit against a McIntosh County deputy for detaining a GCO member to see if the member had a GWL. In affirming the dismissal, the 11th Circuit noted that with HB 60’s passage, there no longer is any reason for a LEO to detain a person to see if the person has a GWL, thus “clearly establishing” the law for any future cases that may arise.
