Two bills allowing Right-to-Carry permit holders to carry in churches, bars and parts of airports on Wednesday were passed by the Senate, closing out a marathon day of legislation. SB 308, sponsored by Sen. Mitch Seabaugh of Sharpsburg and clarifying language regarding where guns can be carried in the state, withstood strong objections from the Board of Regents and at least 10 amendments that were either rejected or withdrawn. It passed with bipartisan support, 41-12. The other bill, SB 291, which permits concealed weapons in vehicles that pick up and drop off passengers at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, was sponsored by Sen. David Shafer (R Duluth). It passed 43-10.
