Apparently the Atlanta Airport has decided it’s above the new law passed by the Georgia Legislature, and signed into law by Governor Perdue.Â One of the reps who was behind the whole effort was Tim Bearden:
“I have a permit, and I have family I have to pick up at the airport tomorrow [Tuesday],” Bearden told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday. “I’ll have one [a concealed weapon] with me at all times.”
Airport General Manager Ben DeCosta said if Bearden shows up at the world’s busiest airport with a gun, he’ll be busted.
“I can identify him, and I’ll have him arrested,” DeCosta said Monday. “We’re not fooling around. This is a post-terrorism environment.”
Mr. DeCosta is setting himself up for a Section 1983 suit in federal court.Â If I were Representative Bearden, I wouldn’t hesitate to sue this arrogant power hungry SOB into next week.Â It seems to me that tyranny doesn’t have that much sense these days, which is good for us.
