Georgia Now Allows Guns Almost Anywhere

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed legislation "that would vastly expand where Georgians can legally carry firearms," the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

The bill, "which passed in the final hours of this year's legislative session, allows Georgians to legally carry firearms in a wide range of new places, including schools, bars, churches and government buildings. A recent analysis also said it could let felons use the state's 'stand your ground' rules to claim self-defense if they feel threatened."
