    This is a good thing to do. The current restrictions force a person to disarm even if they are only accompanying another person up to the security check-in and that is ridiculous. Further, it makes it adds prohibitions that would legally require someone to wait until they are out of the passenger terminal before ensuring they had a useable sidearm. Having traveled enough, I'm generally not too leary of violence in the terminals, but just outside of them is a different story altogether.
