Georgia ‘Guns Everywhere’ Law In Effect Today

Due to a new measure effective today, Georgia residents may take guns into some bars, nightclubs and schools as long as they have a license to carry.

The law allows religious leaders to “opt in” to permit guns on their worship premises and also makes it legal for permit-holders to take firearms near Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints.

Critics call the measure the “guns everywhere” bill. They believe it disturbs places of worship, bars and schools, though Georgians may not bring their firearm into a bar or church if the property owner bans them. GeorgiaCarry lobbied for the bill, calling it “meaningful pro-gun legislation.”

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed the bill into law in April. The measure was approved by the Republican-controlled Georgia General Assembly.
