Guns on Campus Off the Table in 2014
Spencer is happy to report that a legislative provision allowing guns on college campuses is off the table for the 2014 session. Introduced in 2013, House Bill 512 would allow gun owners to carry their weapons on college campuses as well as in churches, bars and some courthouses and government buildings. Two of the bill’s leading sponsors announced today that this legislation would no longer include the campus carry provision.
In a letter before the start of session, Spencer outlined three foundations for the future that should be the priority of the legislature during 2014. Now that the discussion on campus carry is over, it would be to the benefit of Athenians and all Georgians for the legislature to focus on these issues. Stay tuned to Capitol Corner for the latest news from the Georgia General Assembly.
