Lawmakers Propose Banning Guns in Airports in Wake of LAX Shooting

Bill introduced by Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.)


A handful of lawmakers are hoping to ban guns in airports with a new bill in Congress, weeks after a gunman fatally opened fire in Los Angeles International Airport.

That shooting, which left a Transportation Security Administration officer dead and two others wounded, inspired the Airport Security Act, introduced Thursday in the House by a Georgia Democrat.
