Houston NRG Stadium
Can I carry? I'm taking a group of people and the kiddos to the B&B Circus tonight at NRG stadium. The Internet states NRG stadium have a no weapon policy. But doesn't directly state NO CHL. Most discusion topics otherwise found concern the rodeo or sports. This isn't a sporting event and the rodeo was mostly off limits as there were cash winnings and schoolastic FFA activities. However this being the circus, I assume I should be able to conceal carry unless the have the 30.06?
Anyone know if they have 30.06 signs up? Anyone want to redirect or confirm my conclusion?

My understanding is that you are not allowed to carry at a large gathering sporting event. I interpreted that to mean anything (like the circus, concerts, etc.) at a large stadium. I am not sure of the letter of the law, but that is how I interpreted when I got my CHL in Texas.
However, I am not a lawyer, so I woould consult with someone with more knowledge than myself.

The Reliant/NRG complex is owned by Harris County. They do have 30.06 signage in the convention center (seen it with my own eyes). I must assume that the stadium is posted as well.

I went this evening, and I didn't see a single anti gun sign except on the glass doors just before you enter into the stadium. It was the no smoking sign and the no gun sign side by side. Nothing in words and definitely no 30.06 that I could see and I was looking hard. How valid is a 30.06 of it isn't on or around every entry point? I know in NC, if it wasn't on EVERY door, then it was essentially useless because you could claim you came in through that particular area and we're not informed. Yet in TX ignorance isn't defense in court. Gray area drives me nuts.
By the way, the Barnum and Baily circus was wonderful. Would highly recommend it.
