The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and Georgians for Gun Safety have filed an amicus brief in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals case between GCO and Atlanta over whether any existing law prohibits GFL holders from carrying firearms at the Airport. Ostensibly in support of Atlanta, the amicus brief does not cite any law that prohibits such carry. Rather, it claims that Georgia has no authority to regulate firearms at the Airport because federal law occupies this field completely, leaving no room for state regulation. The inescapable conclusion from the amicus brief is that because no federal law prohibits firearms in the unsecured areas of the airport and any state laws on this topic are preempted, no law prohibits guns in the unsecured areas of the airport.
It would frequently behoove those making an argument to examine the logical consequences of making it before inserting it into the public record.
