Georgia House Passes Bill to Allow Guns In Schools Churches and Certain Gov Buildings

Found here on 

On February 18 the Georgia House overwhelmingly passed a bill to allow guns at schools, churches, bars, and certain government buildings.

The measure passed by a margin of 119 to 56.

Titled the “Safe Carry Protection Act,” the legislation not only expands the number of places in which concealed carry permit holders can carry guns but also reduces the punishment permit holders face for carrying in a no-carry area unaware.

According to the Associated Press, the bill “could allow teachers to carry firearms, while others with licenses could take their guns into houses of worship, more bars and government offices.”

The Georgia General Assembly homepageexplains that the allowance to carry in government offices–or a “government building”–applies only to such buildings which are “not restricted or screened by security personnel during the hours the government building is open for business.”

    Georgia’s legislature is very smart and clever in their seeing the positive effect of allowing law abiding firearm carrying citizens
    to be able to basically anywhere any other law abiding citizen can go firearm or not.
    When I mentioned ‘positive effect’ I was referring to the invitation to the armed criminal element of our society, when they see a
    “no guns allowed” sign.
