    Bill allowing guns in Virginia airports delayed a year

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP)
    A proposal to allow people to carry guns and other weapons into Virginia airport terminals has been postponed until next year.
    The House Militia, Police and Public Safety committee agreed Friday to carry over Republican Del. Richard Anderson's bill to the 2013 legislative session.
    The committee chairman, Republican Del. Scott Lingamfelter, said most of the panel's members probably agree with the bill's intent. But he said there are too many technical issues that can't be resolved before Tuesday's deadline for each chamber to act on its own legislation.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    So, Virginia has a State law regarding carry in airports? I thought you could carry right up to the TSA screening area. I have done that several times when meeting people. Also, I have carried right up to the ticket counter where I unload, lock unto a container and place in my luggage. People get a little jumpy, but has never been an issue.
