Finally! After much anticipation, Georgia’s Governor Nathan Deal signed the Campus Carry Bill! It was a toss up as to whether or not he would sign, because he vetoed the bill last year when it landed on his desk.
While this is a very controversial bill, it is a HUGE step for people such as myself who, prior to this signing, could not legally carry onto campus and protect ourselves.
People are afraid of what they do not understand. Which is the only way I can make sense of people who are against campus carry. They are afraid of guns because of what they have seen the bad guys do with them. However, they do not exactly comprehend that good guys with guns are the people who stop the bad guys with guns.
Gwinnett Daily reports:
House bill 280 specified certain areas where someone can have a gun on a campus. It’s legislation that Republicans in the legislature have sought for years only to see it come up time and again in the past.
Although the bill opens up some areas of campuses for people to carry firearms, it still prohibits the carrying of a gun in several other areas, such as on-campus preschool and childcare spaces and areas where high school dual enrollment students would be located.
