Georgia as of Saturday will allow guns on any campus in the state’s public college and university system, the most high-profile of a slew of laws that become effective July 1.

The stakes are high on both sides. Supporters say the new law will make campuses safer for students, faculty and staff. Opponents fear the opposite and say allowing guns on campus creates an unsafe environment.

In the meantime, many are confused about what to expect — some areas of campus will remain off-limits to firearms, although no signs will be posted telling you that — and worry their campus communities aren’t prepared.
