Judge Upholds Law Preventing Guns in Churches; Gun Rights Group Claimed GA Law Was Unconst.

The Ethics Daily website reports today (January 27, 2011) that a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by gun rights advocates who claimed a Georgia law prohibiting weapons in a house of worship was unconstitutional.

GeorgiaCarry.org, an organization that supports gun owners' rights, and two of its members filed suit against state officials, saying the law placed an undue burden on them.

"The law at issue here...does not prohibit anyone from attending services at a place of worship," ruled Judge Ashley Royal of the U.S. District Court in Macon, Georgia.
