Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal will sign a controversial gun bill Wednesday in Ellijay at a ceremony and luncheon that’s expected to attract many supporters and double as a Second Amendment rally. The so-called ‘guns everywhere’ bill will allow firearms in many churches, bars and government buildings. The bill will also bar sheriffs from asking someone with a gun if he or she has a license.
