Airport photo reignites Georgia's gun law debate


ATLANTA -- Jim Cooley says when he went to drop his daughter off at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, he did not expect to draw the attention of airport patrons and police.

Instead, he says, he just did what has become routine over the past five years: when he leaves the house, he takes his gun.

"I carry my gun everywhere I go," Cooley said. "It's important to be armed at all times because you never know when or if something's gonna happen."

Cooley told 11Alive's Blayne Alexander that he owns two guns: a 9 millimeter handgun and an AR-15 rifle. For last Thursday's airport trip, Cooley chose to take the latter.

ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta megachurch's board of directors says it is moving forward in a campaign to buy a private jet.

The board of directors for World Changers Church International and Creflo Dollar ministries said in a statement Wednesday the Gulfstream G650 Dollar wants is necessary to continue international ministry and aid work. The jet is valued at more than $65 million.

The board says an initial appeal for donations didn't adequately communicate that Dollar was looking for donations from like-minded people, not the public at large. The board says a revamped video will be released soon.
