DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - On Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Brian Kemp signed the new law at Gable Sporting Goods allowing legal gun owners to carry their firearms anywhere without a permit.

More than 20 states do not require permits to carry guns, and now Georgia has joined them.

Previously, state law stated that if you wanted a weapon, you had to visit your county’s probate court or sheriff’s office, provide fingerprints, submit a background check and pay a $75 fee.
