    an interesting article I was reading this morning, happens to be on this subject

    Lee law change would allow guns, ammunition on RSW airport property - POLL » Naples Daily News [FLORIDA]

    Guns and ammunition no longer would be considered a prohibited “weapon” at Southwest Florida International Airport, if Lee County officials approve a proposed change to a local law.
    ..
    Under an order Gov. Rick Scott signed in June of this year, Lee commissioners already removed language in local ordinances that had prohibited carrying guns in public parks.

    In Minnesota, the pick-up area is just another public place.

    Jensen sees the signs as a nuisance to the uninformed, but he knows better. He arms himself for airport trips because he believes that supposedly gun-free zones are dangerous. "When someone has posted that they don't allow weapons, criminals see that as an opportunity," he said.

    That hypothetical criminal is a bogeyman to Steven Gunn of the Gun Violence Prevention Center of Utah. He knows state law allows guns into the airport, but he wishes it didn't. There are plenty of authorities with guns at the airport, he said.

    "If you've got a concealed weapon, don't try to protect me," he said. "I'll take my chances with the security forces."
    I say get these people a t-shirt that says as much - "don't help me protect myself, I'll wait for the police!"


    Now there's a maroon!! (the irony of this loop's last name is certainly not lost here )

    The infuriating thing is they really can't wrap their heads around that idea. I'd have more luck trying to ask a glass of milk why it tastes so delicious and actually getting a response.

    Hi John,

    I was just at the Bham International Airport last week to pick up a rental car. I walked all over the airport, in the terminal and in the rental car areas and was perfectly legal. The only posted signage says you can't carry past the security checkpoint (duh). But anywhere else is fair game in our great state of Alabama. Carry confidently.

    Another reason to avoid NV.

    As you possess a license, you need to know YOUR laws.

    Sometimes that's easier said than done. I know CO CRS forward amd backwards for weapons, CCW, wtc. The problem is that the airport and a few cities will use deceptive signage to intentionally confuse the unknownly shy. The airport say something like " Carrying a loaded firearm in DIA without legal authority is a felony punishable by 1 year in prison and/or $100,000 fine". Now to most ppl they don't seem to equate a CCW with legal authority with enough confidence to "carry on". DPD know it is legal by what CRS says, but if you call the desk at DIA they will lie.

    This is always a contentious issue. Federal law states no guns in "sterile" areas, and really, what is the sterile area? Well it should be the place where security and beyond is, or the passenger terminal. But not all airports have their main building (where you walk in initially) as the same building as their terminal. Here at MCO/OIA, you have to take this monorail thing to one of the two terminals. However, most here recommend just not carrying if you're going inside, just to be "safe."

    This is also a good time to remind those of us who regularly carry to double and triple check ourselves and our bags if we're headed to the airport for a flight of our own. It only takes a single forgotten loose round of .22LR to really mess up your day.

    my friend you need to get familiar with the laws in FLA, FLA law says that you cannot your gun into ANY terminal building of a commercial airport. so your advice not to carry inside just to be safe is right but for the wrong reasoning.
    FWIW the sterile area of the airport is the area beyond the security checkpoint.

    Here is the actual text:

    inside the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport, provided that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, which firearm is encased for shipment for purposes of checking such firearm as baggage to be lawfully transported on any aircraft;
