AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - A new Georgia law goes into effect Tuesday, giving people more rights when it comes to guns.

"It makes it much easier for people to legally carry a firearm and clears up misunderstanding in the law," said Donald Edwards, a guns rights activist.

House Bill 60, or the Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014, specifies where Georgia residents can carry weapons.

"The constitution, we feel, is pretty clear," Edwards said. "The right of the Second Amendment says that the right to keep and bear arms shouldn't be infringed."

The bill includes provisions that allow Georgians who have concealed carry permits to take guns into some bars, churches, school zones, government buildings and certain parts of airports.
