Officials hold meeting over House Bill 60, answer questions from citizens

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

State Reps. Henry "Wayne" Howard and Marshal Steve Smith spoke Thursday about changes House Bill 60 has made to gun laws in Georgia.

Since the law went into effect July 1, questions have been raised by Georgia citizens about where they can and can't carry.

Howard and Smith held a meeting at the Garrett Community Center at 6:30 p.m., where Georgians asked them about everything from crossing over into South Carolina with a gun, to what to do if you have a Georgia permit but move out of the state.

"This is a law that could really affect a lot of people, because it affects the ability for licensed gun owners to carry guns in places they haven't been able to do so before," Marshal Smith said. "We want to make sure the ability for people to carry these guns legally is there."

Take a look at the bill here.
