Sounds like they just need another sign?
This is a discussion on Son busted at Boise Hawks ball game. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Sounds like they just need another sign? noweapons.jpg...
If you son was made with a weapon, it's time to rethink what concealed carry is.
I know there is a rash of violence at sporting events but responsible folks tend to act responsible.
NC Bullseye nailed it.
Some seem to want to be able to control their own private property, but don't want to extend the same right to others. And want some bureaucrat in some capital some place telling private property owners what they should allow or not.
Clearly, in some situations the unsecured carry of deadly weapons could be detrimental. This is just common sense. A giant sports stadium where tempers sometimes flare would be an example. For this reason, in many states where one has to pay admission CCW is prohibited.
Sounds like it was a good outcome.
I think your son needs more practice at being "the grey man."
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
As to the rest of it... Your rights end at my door. Even if I'm a public place. In order to open my doors, I have to agree to comply with any local, state and federal regs... If the state I have this place in does not give signage the force of law, I do have signage that states I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason... If you are carrying on my property, and I "make you" you can be asked to leave... failure to comply is trespass. If you fail once LEO gets there, you'll spend a "night in the box!" Well maybe not the latter, but you will be escorted out by LEO.
I have owned businesses which were open to the public. I would never put up a gun buster sign... but you bet your bottom dollar, if you came in strapped and flaunting it... You'd be out on yer ear. But if you inadvertently printed, I wouldn't give a rip.. Probably wouldn't care much if you OC, as long as there was no attitude with it. But a guy like Gecko, or some members of the Taxideinae family would be hard pressed to enjoy my services.
Politicians, take note of Colorado 9/10/2013."You are elected to service, not power.
Your job is to "serve us" not to lord power over us."
Hint at game, ankle or pocket carry. Here, it is not illegal unless posted, then it is. However, I don't go anywhere nor into any business if I can do anything to prevent it .... if I can't carry. As I told one owner, oh... you posted your business .... that's too bad cuz I'll have to start getting stuff elsewhere. He replied, we are the only one's who carry this here. My reply, I can get them "on-line" , I just have to wait a couple of days and it's sitting at my door, so I can save gas $$ too.
Haven't gone back.
I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts. --- Will Rogers ---
Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
While not posted, I know there are some customers of mine that would probably not appreciate the fact that I'm armed.
I'm also fairly certain that some of the parents of the kids my children play with would also feel discomfort knowing that I'm armed.
So...in the interest of keeping everyone happy, I carry with some discretion. Two pocket pistols, in holsters with anti-print panels. At other times, a Smartcarry.
Concealed means just that.
And of course, you should obey your own local laws. That said, there are advantages to not stampeding the sheep.
Nothing to see here...move along.

Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
google fs 790, select the link to the statute, in the upper right hand corner select view entire chapter, use crtl F to search for key words and such. I find it quite useful. in this case the word prohibited got it but athletic would have worked faster.or professional athletic event not related to firearms;
