I just read that some guns rights supporters have sued Hartsfield Jackson airport for the right to bring guns into the airport. It seems that Georgia has a new law that allows citizens with permits to carry concealed weapons on MARTA, to state parks, and to restaurants, but the airport says it is a "no-gun zone."
I find this lawsuit and this law terrifying. Why does anyone need to carry a gun on MARTA? Public transportation is scary enough as it is. (MARTA is the bus and train system in metro Atlanta.) And why would anyone need to bring a gun to the airport, knowing they can't take it on the plane?
Can someone tell me a non-scary reason for this???
