ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

You won't be allowed to carry a gun on public college campuses in Georgia.

Governor Nathan Deal vetoed the campus carry bill.
Some students at Albany State University say they're glad it won't become law.

"It's a great idea to make sure that you just stop the possibility of anything bad happening,” said Deante Young, Albany State Student.

"So the use of guns by students shouldn't be something that people should be worried about at this time,” said Malik Walker, Albany State Student. “They should be focused on their academics instead of worrying about if they need to carry their gun to class today or not."

 The bill would have allowed licensed gun carriers to take guns anywhere on campuses besides student housing and athletic events.
