    Times Union Center in Albany, NY

    Can anyone advise on the firearms policy for events/concerts held at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY? Is that a "restricted" area for a NY CCW permit holder?
    Thanks,

    Is that the old "Knickerbocker Arena" in downtown? Gosh, that takes me back. I used to see shows there when I was in college.

    Now, isn't it true that there is no such thing as a "NY" CCW permit? I mean, each county puts whatever restrictions it wants to on a permit. My old Suffolk County permit was strictly for the range and home premises, and was technically not permission to carry around town. Thus, there was no specific set of allowed/prohibited locations for carry...

    Honestly, I don't know (thus my inquiry). When I was a "New Yorker", I was a "real New Yorker"...I lived in the City. LOL! (Just kidding all you upstate folks...don't start throwing rocks at me.) My "permit" was one of those shiny gold shield-shaped permits. I'm asking for a friend who is not "internet-friendly". Truth be told, he is pretty much anti-technology period.

    I also went to college in Albany. Saw many of concerts there. Don't know their policy, may have to call to inquire. My good buddy is in the Albany PD, says that area has gotten real bad. I'll give him a call tomorrow. If I find out anything, I'll let you know.

    My buddy is a bit of a hermit, complete with the "cabin in the woods". He is actually a retired cop who got really burnt out on the big city and on people in general. He is truly a good guy, but a bit removed from society. He loves his music, though, and he has decided to go see TSO in concert in Albany. He loves the CD's. I explained to him that, given his lifestyle, he will probably go into sensory overload at the concert, but he is very excited about it. He does have a permit to carry, but I don't know the details of his permit type, etc. I know he does not go anywhere without it. Can't say as I blame him.

    IN NY state(besides NYC) it is legal to carry at such events,but the TU's policy probably is against it.I went to an event there last year(when it was the pepsi)and they had security "wanding" people.With mayor Jennings being the anti that he is,and the TU paper's history,it wouldn't surprise me if they had high security and metal detectors.Carry at your own risk I guess.

    Thanks for the information. I've never been to a concert or sporting event where they wanded people. That must create a royal pain in the butt for getting people inside.
