Guns In Airports? Not Necessarily Illegal

The Associated Press, following up on a controversy in Georgia, reports that seven of the 20 busiest airports in the United States allow loaded guns outside of security checkpoints — provided they’re being carried legally.

Those airports, in case you’re packing, are: Philadelphia, Detroit, Phoenix, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The issue came up when the Atlanta airport’s gun ban was challenged under a new state law allowing guns on public transportation.
