    Snopes says this isn't true as weapons aren't allowed on Marta.

    :wink:

    I have had a few bad incidents on Marta, I refuse to make it a regular means of transportation until I can pack.

    Given the circumstances of the shooting, this just proves that the definition of terminal, in 16-12-122, needs to be expanded to include a reasonable distance surrounding any bus, train, or aircraft. Say, oh, a mile and a half just to be safe.

    :wink:

    Yeah, I am with Snopes on this one. How can this happen since its against the law to have weapons on Marta property.

    While they are at it they should arrest that kid in VT for having firearms on campus, oh, wait!

    ;)

    Question for the lawyers and those inclined/interested in legal scenarios...

    Assume you are a GFL holder riding MARTA--not carrying due to the law--and you were injured by an armed assailant. Could one argue that preventing you from carrying is a 2A violation, and that this civil rights violation put you in a position to be injured by banning carry on MARTA?

    I would sue anyway, but I have wondered this question many times.

    They did, it just took longer to sort him out from the numerous victims lying about.

    This is what I don't get - the 2nd doesn't apply to the states, however the framers also authored the 10th.

    never ride, take or use MARTA in any way. it is a public sewer and rolling asylum for the insane.

    Presser is far too early to have any validity today. I think courts citing it are being disingenuous.
