ATLANTA --

Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue says he believes visitors to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport should be allowed to carry concealed weapons under a bill he signed into law earlier this year.

Airport officials say they do not believe the new law - which allows guns in restaurants that serve alcohol, state parks and public transportation - applies to the airport. A gun rights group is challenging that in federal court.
Perdue said Monday that the issue will play out in the courts.
But he said that the publicly-accessible areas appear to be covered by the law. Perdue said if his wife, Mary, needed to walk from one of the airport's remote parking areas, she should be allowed to carry a gun if she wanted

Wow! Now that is my kind of Gov. I wish we could get a pro-gun legislator in our Gov mansion. Our state Senators and Representatives are not pro-gun either. We are lucky that we have the pro-gun carry legislation in place and so far its not been challenged.

...as well as our friend Newt Gingrich. One of the few voices of reason coming out of DC. Of course, he's not in the gov't, anymore, either!

I believe that the pivot point on this issue is carrying in secure areas, which folks are not asking to do.
