ATLANTA (AP) -- Gun rights groups are appealing a ruling that dismissed a lawsuit seeking the right to carry guns in parts of the world's busiest airport.
U.S. District Judge Marvin Shoob tossed the lawsuit Friday, ruling that GeorgiaCarry.org offered no evidence why a new Georgia law would allow weapons into unsecured areas of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
State Rep. Tim Bearden, a Republican who co-sponsored the gun law, hopes to win on appeal.
