p8riot...what you describe is not an "exception", but is right on the money with my advice, "....tell the security personnel at the gate that you have it; they will tell you how to proceed."

Do as you wish regarding the laws you cite, even be the test case, but I stick to my advice, and that is to have firearms unloaded, locked up, and declare them at the gate.
