A man fighting in court for the right to carry firearms onto land managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers argues in his appeal that a federal judge erred when he classified that property a “sensitive place” and exempt from 2nd Amendment protections, the Rome (Ga.) News-Tribune reported.
U.S. District Court Judge Harold Murphy in August ruled against David James and GeorgiaCarry.org, both of whom argue James has the right to carry firearms onto U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-managed land and water at Lake Allatoona, including McKaskey Creek Campground in Cartersville.
