ATLANTA (AP) -- A push to expand gun owners' rights in Georgia has exposed a political gap between the National Rifle Association and a more strident group seeking to expand where people can carry weapons.
The NRA has pursued Senate legislation likely affecting small groups of people. One bill would allow people to hunt with silencers, while another makes clear that people in public housing can own guns.
But House lawmakers have passed a broader plan backed by GeorgiaCarry.Org. It would allow people with a license to take their firearms into bars and churches, as well as on college campuses. It would also allow school districts to arm their employees.
State lawmakers in Georgia must now decide which proposal, if any, to support before the end of their annual session March 28.
