Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a wide-ranging gun bill into law Wednesday, April 23, 2014, that has critics howling and proponents applauding.

Starting this summer, people in Georgia can legally take guns into some schools, churches, and bars.

Hundreds of people watched yesterday as the governor signed what's become known as the “guns everywhere” bill.

Opponents are worried it could lead to more violence, but supporters say it lets people protect themselves and their families.

The law takes effect July 1.

Gun owners must have concealed carry permits, and bars, churches and other businesses still have the right to ban guns on their property.  Also, anyone who has a gun at a school must be an authorized official.

What do you think about the bill? Robin Meade and Lynn Berry will read your comments on the air during Morning Express with Robin Meade! Sound off in the comments below or on our Facebook page. You can also tweet Robin or Lynn directly: @Robin Meade, @LynnBerryTV.
