A few yrs ago I got past a pat down and in with a pistol after riding MARTA to the game. I'm wondering how stringent they'll be at The Dome this weekend for the AL/WA game? Anybody gone to a college game there lately?
if the security officers LIFT the purse, they'll notice that extra weight in it, and discover the false bottom.
Now, I've sneaked guns into private businesses where it was legal to carry but just against store policy, but I'm not going to try to smuggle a gun into a government building with a security checkpoint in place, nor will I try it at a private sports area where you have to buy your tickets FIRST and then go through security. Because if they find your gun, they can eject you, ban you from the property (criminal trespass notice) and I don't think they have to offer you any refund.
So with professional sporting events and music concerts costing the big bucks that they do these days, I'm not going to risk it. Not to mention being kicked out and denied entrance to the venue would ruin what is probably a "group" event, as the others in my party wouldn't have nearly as good a time without my company sitting with them!
If the GA Dome is a public building, and their agents / guards/ security staff ASK YOU about weapons, and you state that you are not armed (but that's a lie) can you be charged with the crime of giving false statements?
That's a felony. Loss of gun rights for life, unless you successfully petition for restoration of civil rights years in the future.
