Gun carry rights expanded in Ga. under controversial law

Apr 23, 2014 12:40 PM

ELLIJAY, Ga. (AP) - Under a law just signed by Georgia's governor, people with a license can carry a gun into bars, some government buildings and places of worship if religious leaders say it's OK.

A few hundred gun rights advocates gathered to watch Wednesday's bill signing by Gov. Nathan Deal with top officials including House Speaker David Ralston and bill sponsor Rep. Rick Jasperse.

Also under the law passed this session, school districts would now be able, if they choose, to allow some employees to carry a firearm under certain conditions.
