Changes made to state gun bill

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

A surprise move prompts big changes to the controversial gun bill going through the Georgia legislature.

Lawmakers have taken out part of the bill that would de-criminalize guns on college campuses.

The bill says that schools can still decide whether or not they want a staff member to be armed.

The bill also says gun license holders will be able to take their weapon into a bar or a church, if the bar owner or the congregation allows it.

Today was the last day for the Senate committee to hear public comments before the full Senate votes.
