Georgia has no law requiring firearm owners to register their firearms. In fact, Georgia law explicitly states that application forms for a weapons carry license may not “require data which is nonpertinent or irrelevant such as serial numbers or other identification capable of being used as a de facto registration of firearms owned by the applicant.”1

See the section entitled Retention of Sales / Background Check Records in Georgia for information about sales reporting requirements.

 See our Registration policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
