Regents, 'Moms' oppose bill allowing guns at campuses, churches

ATLANTA – The Board of Regents released a statement Tuesday opposing legislation that would allow guns on Georgia’s college campuses, and a separate group is planning a rally to object to them in churches, bars and schools.

The groups are trying to stop House Bill 512, which passed the state House last week just hours before the Legislature’s internal deadline. Now the matter is pending in the Senate.

The House Public Safety & Homeland Security Committee rolled into one several separate bills to relax various gun-control measures. Then the House passed it largely on a party-line vote.

“We firmly believe the current law promotes a safe learning environment for our students and working environment for our faculty and staff,” notes the four-sentence statement signed by Chancellor Hank Huckaby, the regents of the University System of Georgia and the presidents of the state’s 31 public colleges.
