Court upholds police pointing gun at lawful carrier

It's open season on gun carriers. A case out of the First Circuit has some painful lessons for gun carriers in Georgia. A United States Circuit Court of Appeals last week upheld the constitutionality of pointing a gun at any citizen daring to carry, lawfully, a concealed weapon in public. The First Circuit Court of Appeals is the Court just below the United States Supreme Court in the New England states.
