Georgia ban on guns in church upheld

A federal appeals court has upheld Georgia's law banning guns in churches and other places of worship.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision, published Friday, upholds a lower court's dismissal of a lawsuit challenging the law. The lawsuit was filed by a gun rights organization -- GeorgiaCarry.org -- and the Rev. Jonathan Wilkins of the Baptist Tabernacle of Thomaston.
