A new gun law in Georgia, dubbed the “guns everywhere” law by critics, permits residents to carry weapons anywhere — including airports, classrooms, houses of worship, and government buildings — and Atlanta residents have been buzzing about the measure.

The law went into effect July 1, and citizens are taking to Twitter to state their opinions.

In an opinion column posted on Rolling Out, author A.J. Shaw writes: "Georgia cities could eventually become more deadly grounds than the violent landscape of Chicago. The city is now known as 'Chiraq.' During Easter weekend in Chicago, 45 people were shot and six were children. But in the South, some backwards politicians believe that more guns is the answer to preventing crime."

The new gun law also allows people to carry firearms into the airport, even through security, Al Jazeera America notes. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Delta's hub, is the world's busiest airport.
