Discharging of rifles-
Twice in two weeks we have had to deal with the discharging of pellet guns or a firearm inside one of our communities.
I am unable to find any law that would restrict a person from the carrying of a rifle or shotgun through our communities. The laws deal mainly with the possession of handguns or pistols. But, there are laws in place that restrict the discharging of any such weapon.
Below is the Cobb County Ordinance on such discharging of a weapon.
Sec. 86-5. Weapons discharge.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to discharge a firearm, air rifle, pellet gun, slingshot, crossbow or other similar device into or over property belonging to another person or entity without first obtaining written permission from that person or entity.
(b) In addition to the penalty provided for in § 86-1, if the person charged with violating this ordinance is a minor, it will be within the discretion of the officer issuing the citation to issue a warning. If this is done, a duplicate of the warning will be sent to the minor’s parents or legal guardian by certified mail.
(c) The provisions of this section shall not apply to:
(1) Persons who discharge one of these devices in defense of person or property;
(2) Law enforcement officers in the performance of official duties;
(3) Military forces of this state or the United States in the performance of official duties.
In addition, Georgia Criminal Code 16-5-60, Reckless Conduct says-
