    Subject: VA-ALERT: VCDL ACTION ITEM - TSA Asked to Ban Guns in Airports!

    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

    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!

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

    Dear President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and TSA Administrator

    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!
