The Atlanta airport administration has decided to spit on a new
Georgia state law and continue a ban on guns in the public, non-
sterile areas of its airport.

How does this effect Virginia gun owners?

Because the airport is asking the TSA to setup a nationwide regulation
banning guns on airport property, including the public, non-sterile
areas!!!

No more leaving a gun in your car while you catch a flight. No more
carrying a gun in parking lots or on public sidewalks at airports. No
more having a gun in your car as you drive to the airport to pick
someone up or drop them off.

We must contact the TSA and the President and Vice President and ask
them to keep the U.S. Government from implementing such a ban!

Send an email using the three addresses below. Suggested text is

SUBJECT: Leave state law alone on lawful gun carry in airports!

Dear President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and TSA Administrator
Hawley:

I am concerned that big city officials from Atlanta and elements of
the anti-gun movement are moving to misuse federal power to accomplish
what they cannot do in state capitols - i.e., criminalize gun carry in
the public and non-sterile areas of airports.

The vast majority of state legislatures support the right to carry
handguns in public, including the non-sterile areas of airports. Any
effort to reverse these state law decisions by way of the federal
bureaucracy insults federalism and the right to bear arms.

According to the Supreme Court in the Heller decision the right to
keep and bear arms is an individual right and, "[a]t the time of the
founding, as now, to 'bear' meant to 'carry.'

Please ensure the TSA stays out of gun ban politics in Atlanta and
across the Unites States!

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME
