Georgians licensed to carry a gun will soon be able to take their weapons into many more places.  Governor Nathan Deal signed a bill Wednesday expanding the right to bear arms.

Starting July 1, licensed Georgians will even be able to carry guns into churches and schools in some circumstances.  Religious leaders would be allowed to decide whether weapons are allowed in houses of worship and school officials may allow employees to be armed under certain circumstances.
