Guns in Schools, Churches, and Airports: Welcome to Georgia (VIDEO)


ATLANTA, GA –– Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed approved sweeping new gun legislation today that allows law abiding firearm owners to bring their guns into a variety of places that were once relatively unprotected gun-free zones.

The Safe Carry Protection Act allows school districts to authorize staff carrying firearms on campus, as well as allowing churches to permit firearms on their property.  Additionally, the new law specifies that gun owners who bring their firearms to airport security checkpoints can collect their firearms and not face criminal charges as well as bans the state from creating a firearm registry.  Those seeking a concealed carry permit will no longer be required to submit fingerprints to the state.

The law strengthens the Second Amendment-protected right to bear arms and lessens the number of places criminals and the criminally insane can target without facing stiff opposition from ordinary Americans.

According to Georgia state Representative Rick Jasperse, the legislator who introduced the bill, “When we limit a Georgian’s ability to carry a weapon — to defend themselves — we’re empowering the bad guys.”

Anti-Second Amendment group Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the Georgia Association of Police Chiefs (GAPC) came out against the law.  According to GAPC executive director Frank Rotondo, “Police officers do not want more people carrying guns on the street.”
