Senate approves guns in church bill

| March 21, 2011

The Georgia Senate approved legislation last week that would let churches decide whether they want to allow weapons in their places of worship.

The measure passed by a vote of 41-11. Republican Sen. Jeff Mullis of Chickamauga says the bill treats churches like any other private property and offers smaller churches a way to protect themselves.

The proposal passed with four amendments, including two that would allow gun owners with permits to have a concealed weapon in authorized county or municipal government buildings. That would include elected officials.

Republican Sen. Frank Ginn of Danielsville says elected officials "are now confronted daily with violence" and have a right to defend themselves.
