Most Catholics in Atlanta will not be allowed to carry guns in church, but Archbishop Wilton Gregory said he will make a few exceptions.

The archbishop has opposed a new law spearheaded by Georgia Republicans that will allow people to carry guns in churches if the congregation permits it.

Gregory said he will not allow guns in churches except in the case of members of the military, law enforcement officials or otherwise designated by the government to guard the public.
