Georgia car law
In Georgia you do not have to have a ccw to have a handgun in your car. However, you do have to be eligible to obtain a ccw, even if you don't have one, to transport a handgun in your car. My understanding is (I was told by a police officer) that, if eligible, you can have a handgun anywhere in your car in the open or hidden, it doesn't matter.
Before the law was amended recently, you had to have the gun in the open (like laying on the seat) if you didn't have a ccw.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. I do know the law has changed recently, please verify before commenting.
