A controversial gun bill has made it one step closer becoming law in Georgia.
The Georgia House of Representatives passed SB101 on Friday morning with a vote of 116 to 55.
The bill would allow licensed gun owners to carry guns in places of worship if individually permitted, in bars and on college campuses with the exception of dorms.
The bill would also allow K through 12 schools to decide if an administrator can carry a gun and would let people who are at least 18 years old and have been honorably discharged from the military to carry.
SB101 now goes back to the Senate.
