Berean Baptist Church is an unassuming white building just off Interstate 20 in Social Circle. The church is fairly young, having taken over the property from another congregation a few years ago. But the decision to allow guns onto their grounds come July 1, could put Berean Baptist on the map.
A proposal to change Georgia's gun laws would close one loophole potentially allowing mentally ill people to purchase firearms. Still, state judges are concerned the proposal could open another gap allowing mentally ill people to carry guns.
