Callaway Gardens sends Georgia Carry packing

Okay, the headline's a bad attempt at a pun.

What's not funny is how the privately owned Georgia resort gave preliminary okay to Georgia Carry's summer convention months ago, but now reneges citing a no guns policy.

From Fox 5 Atlanta:
Callaway Gardens issued a statement to FOX 5 explaining the mistake and apologizing saying, "Unfortunately, two team members did not properly convey our weapons policy, which like many other family-friendly destinations, does not permit weapons on the premises."
The Atlanta Journal Constitution also picked up on the story, and says the cancellation of the August meeting followed a contract review by Callaway Gardens' legal team.

Georgia Carry is now looking for another venue.
