It's the gun rights bill heard 'round the state: House Bill 60 is now ready for Gov. Deal's (very likely) signature, after which it will become law.
That means your right to carry a gun into a church, bar or airport will be expanded. (In the case of the former, the decision will be left up to individual congregations; for the latter, being armed will be essentially decriminalized.) The law's passage will also mean "no more fingerprinting for license renewals, no more police checking your license, and no more zoning restrictions for gun dealerships," per Atlanta weekly Creative Loafing .
That post's headline — "Georgia's totally reasonable, rational, not extreme whatsoever gun bill awaits Deal's signature" — reflects the high stakes the bill has claimed in public debate. Let's not continue it here! Instead, you can read House Bill 60 for yourself, in its 29-page entirety, below.
