Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal today signed into law a wide-ranging gun bill that has critics howling and proponents applauding.
House Bill 60, or the Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014 -- which opponents have nicknamed the "Guns everywhere bill" -- specifies where Georgia residents can carry weapons. Included are provisions for taking guns into some bars, churches, school zones, government buildings and certain parts of airports.
GeorgiaCarry, which lobbied for the bill, calls it "Meaningful pro-gun legislation," Despite it being watered down from the group's perspective. Still, the group has lauded the legislation, which will go into effect July 1. Americans for Responsible Solutions opposed the bill, calling it "Extremism in action." Ref. CNN
Even in Georgia has the same problem with gun laws despite the stricter measurements. The thing about this situation is not about those who are getting guns legally - but ones who are doing it illegally to do whatever they want. It's really troublesome when you go outside and any stranger you may encounter have a weapon that can end you in an instant.
