Supreme Court Denies Cert. In Challenge To Restrictions On Guns In Churches

The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday denied certiorari in Georgiacarry.org, Inc. v. Georgia, (Docket No. 12-486, cert. denied 1/7/2013) (Order List).  In the case, the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected constitutional challenges to a Georgia law restricting the the right to freely carry handguns, knives or long guns in 8 specific locations, including any place of worship. (See prior posting.) The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports on the Supreme Court's refusal to review the decision.
