    Wyoming Rodeo Forbids CCW

    There are signs at every entrance to the worlds biggest outdoor rodeo http://www.cfdrodeo.com/ stating that weapons are forbidden.

    They are searching packs and such for unauthorized items [No bottles, food, beverages, weapons or laser lights.]

    Question is, is this legal??

    I've been unable to find out anywhere if it's actually legal for them to ban CCW on the park grounds and what would happen if you are found to be in possession of a concealed weapon.

    I've found this and was wondering if that the rodeo is a PRCA sanctioned event does the highlighted bold item below apply???

    Wyoming Code 6-8-104. Wearing or carrying concealed weapons; penalties; exceptions; permits.

    * (t)(i) Any facility used primarily for law enforcement operations or administration without the written consent of the chief administrator.
    * (t)(ii) Any detention facility, prison or jail.
    * (t)(iii) Any Courtroom.
    * (t)(iv) Any meeting of a government entity.
    * (t)(v) Any meeting of the legislature or a committee thereof.
    * (t)(vi) Any school, college or professional athletic event not related to firearms.
    * (t)(vii) Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic liquor and malt beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to that purpose.
    * (t)(viii) Any place where persons are assembled for public worship, without the written consent of the chief administrator of that place.
    * (t)(ix) Any Elementary or Secondary School facility.
    * (t)(x) Any College or University facility without the written consent of the security service of the college or university.
    * (t)(xi) Any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law or state law or regulation.

    Well, PRCA DOES stand for Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association...

    I'm pretty sure it counts as a professional sporting event.

    Let me make sure I got this straight. Cowboys, Wyoming and no guns. God help us, we are in bigger trouble than I thought.

    Otay, the park is open from 1130 to 2300 & the rodeo is aprox from 1300-1600.

    Now, the rodeo event has not started, or is over & thus the "professional sporting event" is over and the midway, beer tents and exhibits are in full swing, can you now CCW legally??

    What if you are in the park, but do not attend the rodeo

    Get on the phone and call the local DAs office and ask. If your not happy with that answer, send a letter to the Attorney General of the state and ask him/her. The Attorney General is the one that decides in opinions weither its legal or not.

    Having rode rodeo for alot of my younger years as a "professional" yes in my opionion that its illegal to carry in the rodeo grounds. Now in the rest of the park I can't say, but once you enter the rodeo grounds then you'd be violating the law, even if they didnt have a sign to remind you of that fact.

    "Another event I will not spend money on anymore - PRCA"

    Agreed. I don't agree with the law, but having been to numerous rodeos and college sporting events in Wyoming, I can understand the mentality behind it. I was always more concerned about getting whacked with a bourbon bottle than shot...

    I would be much better to create a simple page that uses a sql database that you could add to /edit / search quickly. The forum method is clunky (no offence)

    If the Cheyenne Frontier Days is a private venue, then they have a right to prohibit firearms.

    I don't think "professional" has any relevance in this instance.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Frontier Days involves a whole lot of alcohol, oceans of it. The ban is lawful and makes sense. If you have ever been there, you probably agree.

    Why would you want to penalize the PRCA if the restriction is based on state law? I don’t recall anything in this thread that indicates that the PRCA is placing the restriction on weapons and you certainly cannot blame them for being a Professional Sporting Association, can you????

    It goes back to those 1800's frontier days...when they didn't have any guns...

    However, a little study of those 1800's frontier days will tell you that there were numerous frontier towns that enacted "No Guns in Town" ordinances almost immediately after incorporating. When coming into town, cowboys were required by law to turn their weapons over to the Sheriff or Town Marshal for the duration of their stay in town. Many saloons, gambling halls, and cat houses enacted the same prohibition. Want to use their services? Have to turn over your iron to the bartender or madam. Gun control in it's earliest stages?

    PS - I was also not unusual for lawmen to arbitrarily disarm cowboys on the street because of their attitude, behavior, political affiliations, or state of sobriety, even in towns where guns were not prohibited. I wonder if those cowboys posted letters on the town bulletin board that started out, "So I had my first encounter with a local LEO yesterday while carrying a gun...". :c)
