The judge in the above link stating that a Georgia Firearms License is an affirmative defense (without any other probable cause) is like stating that a Georgia Driver's License is an affirmative defense (without any other probable cause). This means that since you are in possession of a deadly weapon (firearm, automobile), you can be questioned and detained until they determine you are not a threat to society. The biggest difference between firearms and automobiles is that firearms ownership is a right guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment. The framers of the U.S. Constitution knew this type of nonsense would occur if they didn't enumerate that right. Our Constitutional framers were brilliant men! I just wish the Bill of Rights were 10 pages long instead of only 10 lines.
