The State Court of Clayton County has issued a directed verdict of acquittal in a case where a GWL holder was charged with carrying a gun to a gun show. The state charged Jeff Leising with carrying in an unauthorized location, criminal trespass, and reckless conduct based on allegations that Leising, a GWL holder, carried a loaded gun while at a Gun Runners show at the state Farmers Market in Forest Park. After the state rested in the jury trial on the case, Lesing moved for a directed verdict on all counts. After discussion with counsel, the judge agreed that under the evidence introduced, Leising could not be convicted. Included in the court’s ruling were a couple noteworthy findings, including 1) a GWL holder can carry in a government building, even if there is security screening, unless he is notified he fails to clear security and fails to leave.; and 2) private entities leasing public property have no power to ban GWL holders from carrying firearms on the property.
