Fresh off a speech to the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting, former – and potentially future – GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum praised a controversial new gun law in Georgia.

The bill, signed by Gov. Nathan Deal last week, will allow Georgians to carry guns into some bars, churches and government buildings.

Critics have slammed the law, calling it the “guns everywhere bill,” but Santorum defended the legislation Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” arguing that if criminals aren’t sure whether potential victims or bystanders are armed, they likely won’t take the risk.

“I think people do analyze the situation and if they want to accomplish something, they want to kill a lot of people, they’re not going to go someplace where someone will shoot back,” the former Pennsylvania senator said.

The Georgia bill, which will go into effect July 1, will allow residents who have concealed carry permits to take guns to certain parts of airports.
