Sad to say, an extremely bad and stupid bill was signed into law in Georgia today.
Greg Bluestein reports:
Gov. Nathan Deal signed legislation today that would vastly expand where Georgians can legally carry firearms … .
House Bill 60, 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. …
Critics have dubbed it the “guns everywhere” bill for its broad scope, and opponents including former Rep. Gabby Giffords have tried to block its passage.
