Atlanta Police: Bombs, explosive devices prohibited at Peachtree Road Race finish line but weapons, 'long guns' are OK

Just so there's no confusion at the finish line of tomorrow's Peachtree Road Race. From the Atlanta Police Department:

A police spokeswoman says the clarification was prompted by confusion about the so-called "guns everywhere" law that took effect on July 1.

APD officers are expected to have a visible presence at various Fourth of July events taking place throughout town, including the fireworks at Centennial Olympic Park and Lenox Park. People are urged to call 911 or notify a police officer if they notice any suspicious activity.
