Page nine of the decision. Decision 7 October 2019....
On July 1, 2014, this Code section was again amended. Among other changes to the state’s weapons possession laws that took effect the same day, the proviso in OCGA § 16-11-127 (c) was amended by the General Assembly to insert the word “private” in three instances where it had not previously been included:
. . . private property owners or persons in legal control of private property through a lease, rental agreement, licensing agreement, contract, or any other agreement to control access to such private property shall have the right to exclude or eject a person who is in possession of a weapon or long gun on their private property[.]
(Emphasis supplied.) Ga. L. 2014, p. 599, § 1-3 (effective July 1, 2014). This is the current text of OCGA § 16-11-127 (c), and it was in effect at the time the Garden prohibited Evans from carrying a firearm onto the premises the Garden leases from the City of Atlanta.

The Atlanta Falcons has responded:
PhilIt was an Atlanta Falcons spokesperson regarding the Atlanta Falcons position only, just as presented by 11Alive News. It is not the position of the GWCCA, nor was it even implied as such.
The GWCCA is looking into this themselves. Does nothing pass any muster for you? It's all just BS? LOL!
