No guns – for now – at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Int’l Airport

On Monday, a federal judge upheld a gun ban at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport.

The gun rights group is trying to convince the judge that the non-secure parts of the airport are included in a new Georgia law allowing people to carry licensed firearms in state parks, restaurants, and on public transportation.

U.S. District Judge Marvin Shoob is thinking it over and may not make a final ruling for several months. In the meantime, he’s letting stand the city’s declaration of the airport as a “gun-free zone.”

The gun rights group is calling this a temporary setback. City officials are asking the TSA for backup.
