Look for SB-308 on here. That is the bill that has removed the oublic gathering law but it still doesn't allow you to carry "anywhere". Churches and college campuses are two examples that currently have been removed.

Please consider contacting the Governor in the next couple of weeks and asking him to sign SB 291. It is a good bill, and it would be a shame if it were vetoed due to lack of public support voiced to the Governor's office.

When does it become law without him or how long does he have to veto it?

Since the legislature will be out of session, I believe he has 40 days.

Once again great reporting. Security Director News

On April 27, the Georgia House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 291 in a 120-37 vote that, if signed by the governor, would allow registered gun owners to bring their weapons into areas of Georgia airports that are not controlled by the federal government. [snip]
The bill’s sponsor, State Sen. Mitch Seabaugh, said the bill is aimed at clarifying Georgia’s current gun carry laws and would not make the public less safe, according to CBS News.
Bold added.

this is NOT accurate-- houses of worship are on the list of off limits areas, and so are college campuses, but it is no longer a crime to leave a weapon in your vehicle in the parking lots of off-limits areas.

Section 1-3 (b) said:
(b) A person shall be guilty of carrying a weapon or long gun in an unauthorized location and punished as for a misdemeanor when he or she carries a weapon or long gun while:
(1) In a government building;
(2) In a courthouse;
(3) In a jail or prison;
(4) In a place of worship;
(5) In a state mental health facility as defined in Code Section 37-1-1 which admits individuals on an involuntary basis for treatment of mental illness, developmental disability, or addictive disease; provided, however, that carrying a weapon or long gun in such location in a manner in compliance with paragraph (3) of subsection (d) of this Code section shall not constitute a violation of this subsection;
(6) In a bar, unless the owner of the bar permits the carrying of weapons or long guns by license holders;
(7) On the premises of a nuclear power facility, except as provided in Code Section 16-11-127.2, and the punishment provisions of Code Section 16-11-127.2 shall supersede the punishment provisions of this Code section; or
(8) Within 150 feet of any polling place, except as provided in subsection (i) of Code Section 21-2-413.
Section 1-4 (a) said:
(a) As used in this Code section, the term:
(1) 'School safety zone' means in, or on, any real property owned by or leased to any public or private elementary school, secondary school, or school board and used for elementary or secondary education and in, or on, the campus of any public or private technical school, vocational school, college, university, or institution of postsecondary education.

(b)(1) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (c) of this Code section, it shall be unlawful for any person to carry to or to possess or have under such person's control while within a school safety zone or at a school building, school function, or school property or on a bus or other transportation furnished by the school any weapon or explosive compound, other than fireworks the possession of which is regulated by Chapter 10 of Title 25.
(2) Any license holder who violates this subsection shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Any person who is not a license holder who violates this subsection shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, be punished by a fine of not more than $10,000.00, by imprisonment for not less than two nor more than ten years, or both

Actually, TheLaw was correct regarding the revision of the bill that existed in April.

On April 28th, the house had not yet addressed SB308. In the as-passed senate version, college was not off limits, and churches were opt-in only permissions.

So SB 291 would have allowed permitless open carry. Anything else in it advantageous over SB 308?
Anything we can revisit in 2018?
