ALBANY, GA (WALB) - That shooting in Kentucky is ammunition for critics of the law that allows you to take a gun to work in Georgia.

 The law goes into affect July 1st, allowing employees to take guns to work in their cars, if their employers okay it.

It also allows license holders to tote their guns in public gatherings and restaurants. 
 
With easier access to weapons, law enforcement leaders say that could cause people to act first and think about the consequences later. 

"I sign a lot of gun permits up here in Lee County. A lot of people carry their weapons, and this day and time I don't blame them at all, but I don't like the idea of taking them in the restaurants. I wish the law wouldn't have changed on that taking them into a public gathering place," says Lee County Sheriff Harold Breeden.

2008 was the second year in a row that Georgia has topped The Brady Center gun violence list.
