BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says Birmingham’s airport can ban guns in a break room used by taxi drivers.

A letter released by the state this week shows that someone affiliated with a cab company complained that authorities posted a “no guns” sign on the door to an airport break room used by drivers.

Strange’s office investigated and determined the sign is legal since the cab company voluntarily agreed to follow rules at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.

Strange’s office often reviews complaints about gun prohibitions in public places. A state law which took effect three years ago prompted many businesses and other public to put up signs saying that firearms were not allowed.
