GCO files Freedom of Information Act Request with TSA

Recently published in various media outlets was the unprecedented request by an airport (Hartsfield-Jackson) for the TSA to amend its security plan and allow the airport to ban firearms outside of the secure areas. GCO is currently in court fighting Hartsfield over its ban so we were surprised to find out that the airport is trying to create a back door way to ban firearms if their case should fail. In addition to our letter to the TSA to deny Hartsfield’s request of the security plan change, we have also asked the TSA for all the documents Atlanta submitted to the them for the request to change the security plan. It will be about a month before we get that requested information. You can view GCO’s FOIA request here.
