I hope this message finds you well. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of experience handling gun related legal matters. It is a pleasure to assist you today.

If you have never been convicted of a felony and have never been convicted of any crime of violence (even if a misdemeanor) then you are legally allowed to carry a firearm and are legally allowed to apply for and receive a concealed carry permit in Georgia.

The pretrial diversion should mean that you were not convicted. You may have to provide this paperwork when you apply for the permit though.

Let me know if you have any other questions or comments.

Please also rate my answer positively (three or more stars) so I can receive credit for my response.

Best wishes going forward!
