Peachtree Corners are you in favor of the new proposed HB 512 that passed the House this week? It reportedly would allow guns in churches and unsecured government buildings.
HB 512, also known as the Safe Carry Protection Act, passed the Georgia House on Thursday (March 7), by a vote of 117-56. It was the last day in the 2013 General Assembly session that the bill could "cross over" to the Senate.
The bill, among other things, would allow guns on college campuses, which the University System of Georgia has lobbied against.
Also, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, it would allow guns in churches, unsecured government buildings and courthouses, and would allow school boards to arm administrators in schools.
There are nine days left in the legislative session for the Senate to act.
