GA lawmakers ramp efforts to get guns on college campuses

ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) -

Lawmakers in the Georgia State Legislature are resuming their fight to legalize firearms on college campuses in the state.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that two republican State Representatives have filed a bill that would allow anyone with a weapons license to carry a firearm on a public university campus.

Under the bill, weapons would still be banned at Greek houses, dormitories and athletic events.

The bill already has dozens of supporters in the State House. A similar bill last year passed the State House before it was removed in the State Senate.
