Many nonprofits in Georgia, particularly those that work with vulnerable populations including children, the elderly, and victims of violence, do not permit weapons on their premises. On July 1, 2014, the laws of Georgia changed significantly to further limit one’s ability to restrict gun-carrying by licensed gun-holders. These changes may affect nonprofits that currently have such restrictions, particularly those that are located in government buildings or lease property from a municipality, county or the State of Georgia.

The Safe Carry Protection Act (SCPA) became law in the State of Georgia on July 1, 2014. With the passage of the SCPA, many Georgia nonprofits face a new set of rules regarding weapons in and around their workplaces or operating locations.
