    TRAVEL WARNING: Guns are now allowed in the Atlanta airport except in areas where TSA has screened passengers. You are AT RISK if you leave these secured areas.

    As per Georgia HB 60 Section 755 16-11-130.2.
    No person shall enter the restricted access area of a commercial service airport, in or beyond the airport security screening checkpoint, knowingly possessing or knowingly having under his or her control a weapon or long gun. Such area shall not include an airport drive, general parking area, walkway, or shops and areas of the terminal that are outside the screening checkpoint and that are normally open to unscreened passengers or visitors to the airport. Any restricted access area shall be clearly indicated by prominent signs indicating that weapons are prohibited in such area.
