The 2010 Georgia law is the second attempt the Legislature has made in recent years to lift the state's restrictions on firearms in airports.

But in September 2008, Senior U.S. District Judge Marvin Shoob threw out a suit brought by GeorgiaCarry.org, a gun rights group, and state Rep. Timothy Bearden (R-Villa Rica) challenging a 2007 law.

They argued in their suit that the then-new state law allowed firearms on public transit overrode a longstanding policy prohibiting airport visitors from carrying guns in non-secure areas. But Shoob said public transit systems are not the same as airports, and airline passengers are not allowed to carry firearms onboard.

Cool! I hear the airport has good food too.
Yes that's what I hear! Just be sure to carry lots of cash in your other hand tomorrow, as it is pricey!

While state law allows firearms in some areas of the airport, in addition to weapons that are in luggage about to be loaded onto planes, two bills are pending in Congress designed to counter the Georgia law.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, who represents Georgia's Fourth Congressional District east of Atlanta, filed legislation in May. A week earlier, a New Jersey congressman introduced a similar bill.

Johnson's bill would prohibit people other than law enforcement and Department of Homeland Security employees from carrying firearms -- concealed or otherwise -- in airport terminals, lobbies, baggage claim areas, ticket counters, and outside in pick-up and drop-off areas.

And they're going to have a great big "told you so" on their side when our enemy makes his way down there this weekend and causes a scene.

A pro-gun organization sees Atlanta’s ‘back down’ as a victory. Jerry Henry with ‘Georgia Carry’ says the group is celebrating the move to uphold state law over city government preferences.

“We fought to get a couple of bills passed last year and SB308 has been ruled that it allows licensed carriers to carry within the non-sterile areas of the airport.â€

And any "I told you so" incidents will certainly play right into the hands of the anti's with regards to drumming up support for this federal legislation being proposed.

Alright, guys, let's try to avoid trashing an informative thread.
