Today, the state House legalized carrying concealed guns on college campuses in Georgia. The debate took about and hour and a half to come to an agreement on rather or not the 859 bill would be passed and it did. Not every college student can just go out and get a gun. They’re rules and regulations behind this newly passed bill: Student has to be 21 or older with a weapon license and they’re not allowed to carry in dorms, frat houses, or athletic events. They also must be concealed only and a permit for that is required as well. Due to a couple of armed robberies at Georgia State University library, this has also gave them more support for why students should have the right to carry a concealed gun.
