ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There's a move to allow Georgians to carry guns into more public places. The new proposal would allow guns inside churches and on college campuses.
Religious leaders around the state are opposed to the idea of guns in churches.
So are many ministers here in South Georgia.
"I cannot understand myself a lot of things we're doing in our society and in the world today and it doesn't seem to me to be rational at all to solve our problems with more weapons, more freedom of weapons in our society, it just doesn't make sense to me," said Rev. Mike McAfee of First United Methodist Church.
Gun supporters say allowing church-goers and college students to carry guns would cut down on random, and often deadly attacks.
