Georgia lawmakers still debating guns in churches laws

| March 27, 2011

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The debate continues over where gun permit holders should be allowed to carry their weapons.

A bill approved by the State Senate would let the owners or members of a church decide whether to allow guns in their place of worship.

Gun rights activists it's a good step forward, but many church leaders say they still don't want guns in their churches.

Senate bill 102 was approved by a vote of 41 to 11, but has not been passed by the House. Instead of a statewide ban of guns in churches, it would let each church decide for themselves, like any other private property.
