SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A rally was held Tuesday evening against House Bill 280.

Moms Demand Action, along with other Savannah organizations organized in front of Armstrong State University. HB 280 is also known as the "Campus Carry" bill.

Tuesday's demonstrators want to send a strong message to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal to veto it.

"It's only going to create more problems. If we have people, if there's an issue at the campus and somebody has shot a gun and another person out there says, 'Hey, I'll help,' and they're out there holding their gun, they very well could get shot thinking they're the perpetrator," said Margaret Ellison, the rally coordinator.

Last year, Gov. Deal did veto the resolution. He said because it did not offer proper exemptions to allow faculty offices to be weapon free.
