UPDATE: ELLIJAY, Ga. (AP) -- Gov. Nathan Deal has signed legislation expanding where people with licenses to carry can bring their guns in Georgia. A few hundred gun rights advocates gathered for Wednesday's bill signing in Ellijay with top officials including House Speaker David Ralston and bill sponsor Rep. Rick Jasperse. The bill makes several changes to state law. It allows those with a license to carry to bring a gun into a bar without restriction and into some government buildings that don't have certain security measures. It also allows religious leaders to decide whether it's OK for a person with a carry license to bring a gun into their place of worship. And school districts would now be able, if they want, to allow some employees to carry a firearm under certain conditions. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ELLIJAY, Ga.
