Late Thursday, Gov. Nathan Deal (R) signed campus carry into law, making campus carry the law of the land in one-fifth of the states.

Deal vetoed campus carry in 2016, pointing to the lack of an exemption for daycare facilities on public college and university campuses. On March 31, 2017, Breitbart News reported that Georgia lawmakers sent campus carry to Deal again, and this time around it contained an exemption for the daycare facilities.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that other exemptions in the new campus carry bill “include dormitories, fraternity and sorority houses, and buildings used for athletic events.”

According to Get Schooled–an Atlanta Journal-Constitution blog–Deal signed the campus carry legislation–HB 280–and released a statement, saying:

It is altogether appropriate that weapons not be allowed in sensitive areas on college campuses, and I appreciate the thoughtful consideration given by the General Assembly in expanding these excluded areas within a college campus in this year’s bill. While HB 280 addresses the rights and restrictions relating to weapons carry license holders on a college campus, …[its] effect may have greater significance for students who are going to or coming from a campus. Unfortunately, in parts of the state, the path to higher education travels through dangerous territory.
