ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It's just not a good idea!
Governor Nathan Deal recently signed the campus-carry law, even after opposition from Georgia's public university presidents and police chiefs.
The Governor vetoed the bill last year, but signed it into law after some adjustments were made.
The law allows concealed weapons permit holders to carry concealed weapons in some spaces on campus and designates where those concealed firearms are off-limits, including preschools, faculty or administrative offices, disciplinary hearings and areas where high schoolers take classes.
Even with those limitations, we all know that a campus setting can present its own issues with alcohol, college-related stress, and just- plain ole immaturity!
We've even heard from some concerned about the issues now being presented to law enforcement, if they are called to a shooting on a campus.
We aren't saying that guns should be taken away from anyone, but now that it's the law, we hope we won't see an increase in gun-related incidents on Georgia's college campuses.
