Gov. Nathan Deal has signed House Bill 60 into law allowing guns to be brought into schools, churches, bars and government buildings, according to a report from our affiliate CBS46.

“For decades now I have staunchly defended our Second Amendment rights as both a legislator and as governor,” said Deal. “This legislation will protect the constitutional rights of Georgians who have gone through a background check to legally obtain a Georgia Weapons Carry License.”

The law will also allow gun owners to carry their weapons into airports that are not behind security checkpoints. The legislation permits school districts to authorize an administrator to carry a gun and it will let houses of worship and bars to decide whether to allow guns through their doors.

The law will go into effect on July 1.
