Georgia governor to sign ‘unprecedented’ bill expanding gun rights

As a law abiding citizen who hasn’t been in trouble with his gun, I should be allowed to carry anywhere I want. Even a plane.
Check it out:

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is expected to sign legislation Wednesday expanding gun rights in the state.

The bill, described by the National Rifle Association’s lobbying arm as “the most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history,” expands the scope of public places where licensed owners are allowed to carry firearms.

The bill makes several changes to state law. It allows those with a license to carry to bring a gun into a bar without restriction and into some government buildings that don’t have certain security measures. It also allows religious leaders to decide whether it’s OK for a person with a carry license to bring a gun into their place of worship.
