Gov. Nathan Deal Monday countered critics of his veto of the controversial bill that would have allowed guns on college campuses with the exceptions of dorms, fraternities and sororities, and sporting events.

After state lawmakers passed the "campus carry" bill earlier this year, Deal asked them to amend it to address his concerns about weapons in campus day cares, administrative buildings and into disciplinary hearings.

They declined.

Monday, the governor indicated he is opposed to students taking guns on campus.
