Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has vetoed a bill that would have allowed citizens who possessed a valid weapons license to carry onto the state’s college campuses.
The bill would have only allowed persons who were over the age of 21 and had taken the time and spent the money to acquire a George Weapons Carry License to carry on campuses.
Despite having a Republican Governor, Republican LT. Governor and a Republican “super majority” in the state government, the state of Georgia has had a tough time passing pro-gun bills in recent years.
Anti-gun rights groups are already heralding the veto as a victory for gun control and praising Nathan Deal for his most anti-gun vote to date.
