Atlanta Seeks Stay in Parks Ban Case, GCO Responds

GCO filed a motion with the Fulton Superior Court asking the Court to stop the City of Atlanta and other defendants from enforcing their preempted ordinances and arresting people like you who are lawfully carrying firearms. The City of Atlanta filed a motion asking the Fulton County Superior Court to stay GCO’s lawsuit against Atlanta and five other Fulton entities for banning the carry of firearms in their parks. Atlanta wants the court to sit on the case until after the Court of Appeals rules in the Coweta County case, which means that Atlanta wants to delay the case and continue threatening arrest and prosecution of GCO members until the spring of 2008. GCO’s response to Atlanta’s motion, and other briefs in the case may be viewed here.
