Mistake # 1 -- stopping in Atlanta. That's what Interstates are for.
I do security screening all day, every day at a federal court. I would like to know the tech as well. We can't tell the difference between a paper clip and a penny in your pocket but can find them easily. I have seen people come in with all manner of things that have more metal than a small pistol, not to mention what electronics do to a magnetometer.I don't want to wade through the advertising for that machine but wonder what exactly it detects that tells it the object is a gun. I'll bet that's secret information that the manufacturer doesn't release.
Sometimes, you can lead a horse to water but, he’ll just continue on in and drown himself!So, my wife and I made the drive down from Chesapeake, VA to Atlanta, GA this afternoon. It was a nice 10hr trip en route tomorrow (the 2nd leg of our trip) to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi to pay a surprise visit to my Dad. Anyways, we had lunch at the nearby Cheese Cake Factory and entered the mall. Sure, it had the no gun sign (red circle with a slash over a gun) on the door but I walked right on in with my CC piece (HK VP9 w/17+1 and 2 extra 17 rd mags) on my person. Everything was fine until my wife wanted us to go down to the lower levels of the mall. It was then that I ran into this crazy sign that I had never seen before. Pure foolishness! It was near the escalator leading to the two lower decks of the mall. Needless to say, once I saw it, I refused to go down the escalator, and my wife and I promptly left the mall altogether.

Did you miss the part about "health"? It's possible that whomever is doing the screening can have the device make a noise and flash a light at will. Then they can claim that the person being "screened" possibly is carrying a "dangerous virus" and further testing is required.
