  1. Georgia Approves Bill Allowing Weapons in Public Places

    Georgia will become the first state to allow guns on the street and in most libraries, schools, churches and stores — unless those establishments specifically prohibit them. Gov. Nathan Deal signed the bill two days after a woman was shot and killed outside a mall in Atlanta. Opponents of the new law are calling it the “Guns Everywhere Bill” while supporters say it promotes self-defense, personal liberties and public safety. Many of Georgia’s gun activists will flock north this weekend for the annual NRA conference in Indianapolis, attended by more than 70,000 gun enthusiasts.
