    I grew up under the airport in Forest Park, it is because of people like the Mayor and the other people in office that can run my life and my tax dollars better than me that I retired to Florida instead. Although I am no longer a resident, you guys especially the senator have my Prayers and support.

    Dear GCO Member,

    Today is a busy day.

    (1) GCO Sues Mayor Franklin

    More information will follow, but we wanted you to hear it from us first. GCO attorney John "Sledgehammer" Monroe filed a federal lawsuit this morning against Atlanta, Mayor Shirley Franklin, and airport manager Ben Decosta, seeking to enjoin them from arresting people who are obeying state law.

    State Rep. Tim Bearden (Dist. 68) is a plaintiff in the lawsuit, as Ben DeCosta last night made a specific threat to arrest him today.

    The lawsuit is being served on the recalcitrant public officials even while you are reading this Update. More to follow . . .

    (2) Don't Forget about Dinner with GCO

    As you know, HB 89 takes effect on July 1 (today!), and it is no longer a crime to carry a firearm into a restaurant that serves alcohol, so long as one does not consume alcohol at the restaurant while armed.

    Christo's is a restaurant in Marietta that is owned by a GCO member and is inviting GCO members to dine in its restaurant armed. Many GCO members are eager to show up and celebrate the same day HB 89 takes effect. Several of the GCO officers and board members will be showing up around 7:00 p.m. to feast on pizza, calzone, and gyros. Many are coming earlier or later. Expect some television news cameras.

    Christo's is located in the Publix Shopping Center at the corner of Delk Rd and Powers Ferry (2900 Delk Road, Marietta). It is in the corner of the shopping center. Here is a web link for the location:
    2900 Delk Rd SE # 1700, marietta ga - Google Maps
    Hope to see you and your pistol there.

    I am curious. If state law allows carry there, what are the officers supposed to put on the charging document? "Article 27 section 4 Making the mayor look like an idiot?"

    CNN.com has this video called "More guns in Georgia" today.

    It's so annoying how they talk about CCW. They don't have a clue.

    My Comment to the AJC Story

    Shirley Georgette Wallace Franklin is becoming a real politican. To paraphrase a governor from a neighboring state back in the day..

    "In the name of the most elitest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of freedom, and I say gun bans now, gun bans tomorrow, gun bans forever."

    Power corrupts....

    This could reach further than Atlanta. Denver does not have any restrictions on their airport or the parking lot but here's a clip from a Fox News article and I'm most concerned by the third paragraph:

    Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin said citizens can't bring guns into the terminal and argued that airports remain attractive targets for terrorism.

    Allowing citizens to carry firearms "would create an environment that would endanger millions of people," she said.

    Franklin said she will lobby Congress to withhold federal funds from facilities that allow firearms on their premises.

    She has a point. Now all of the terrorists will be able to apply for CCW permits.

    And perhaps more importantly, the Terrorists will be able to carry their firearms into the airport since it'll be legal. Tsk. Tsk. The only thing standing between us and armed terrorists was the law and now we don't even have that!

    same sort of thing happened in texas right after ccw passed. some idiots up in grand prarie decided to declare either Six flags over Texas or the State Fair an Amusement park even though it met almost none of the necessary defining factors.

    Not to drag this too far off topic, but I thought carry in State Park was allowed again as of last year... at least that's what the instructor told the whole class last week...

    Two relevant comments:

    1. She seemed shocked that the law was intended to allow carry in churches; however, I am dumbfounded as to why church carry is not allowed, especially in the wake of the Colorado incident.

    2. That reporter is kinda hot.
