    And in Georgia, terminal carry will get you 20 YEARS in prison, and that includes the parking lots and a resonable distance adjacent to the bus stops.

    the law already allows a concealed permit holder to carry a weapon on a bus but does not allow a lawful weapon to be carried into bus depots. The bill would also reduce unlawful possession of a concealed weapon on board a bus from a second- degree felony to a third-degree felony, which Walker explained brings the offense in line with the rest of Utah law.

    The committee unanimously approved the bill, which now goes to the House floor for a vote.

    Is Georgia the only state left with a terminal ban? Or does Missouri have one, too?
