I was stopped by the police for speeding in GA. The officer asked did I have any fire arms or other weapons in my car. I informed him that I did have a fire arm. The magazine was loaded and a bullet was in the chamber. I had not applied for my carry license at the time. However I did apply a couple of days ago for my carry license. I did inform him that I was not aware of the weapons laws in Ga. I had just graduated from college and was in the process of moving back to GA from Alabama.
