This blogger seems to have bought the line that the laws passed recently in Georgia and Florida were intended to target airports and Disney, when they are not. Disney is not exempt from Florida’s law which allows holders of a Florida Concealed Weapons License to leave their guns in their car while at work, but it is not specifically targeted by it.
Nor did the Georgia law in question specifically target airports. It removed restrictions creating gun free zones out of public transportation vehicles and infrastructure. Atlanta’s airport has decided the law need not apply to them. Law or no law, they are determined to arrest people. That a legal authority is determined to arrest people who have broken no law should scare the hell out of any American. I should also note that this does not apply to the sterile area of the airport past the security perimeters. Airline security is a matter of federal law and regulations, and remains in place.
I may not agree with the Florida law mandating that people be permitted to have guns in privately owned parking lots, but nor do I agree with the hysterics from Disney, the media, and a lot of other people, that somehow allowing this is going to lead to bloodbaths. Despite the Brady Campaign’s machinations, they’ve never been right once. Not once, about the issue of concealed carry laws leading to more violence.
