Fights in the stands at sporting events are bad enough as they are. Now just imagine the sometimes drunk, but always fiery sports fans are able to bring in concealed weapons.
Washington state legislators have pushed forward a proposal for fans at Safeco Field and CenturyLink Field (home of the Mariners and Seahawks) to be able to bring guns into the stadiums, per Sports Illustrated.
But the legislature moves to prevent private operators of public spaces, stadium authorities, and public facilities districts from keeping out concealed pistols from their respective spaces, provided the weapons’ owners have proper license to carry.
If this passes, just imagine what the trickle-down effect could be throughout stadiums across the country.
