ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

A group of ministers urged Governor Nathan Deal to veto a bill that would allow guns on college campuses.

The coalition of faith leaders, some of whom work on college campuses, spoke out Monday against the bill.

The governor hasn't indicated whether he'll sign it, but he did express concerns about weapons being brought into campus daycares, disciplinary hearings and offices.

On Monday, House Speaker David Ralson said the house would not take up any changes because the Governor didn't voice concerns until after the bill passed both houses of the General Assembly.
