What is security like entering Coors Field?
Looks like metal detectors are in place and firarms are forbidden.

Leave it at home or in your vehicle. They do random wandings and have searched my wife's bag. It sucks but that is the cost of going to a game.
Hazy gray area, since under CO law, ALL entrances to the building have to have permanent detectors in place and ALL persons entering have to pass though said screening.
That and it is technically private property, not public.
Hit my limit for speculation, the sky is falling, and gun owners fighting amongst themselves.
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!
But it's fun going ..... parking sucks... take one of the bike cabbies from the parking lot.
They are not public.
Even if they screened all customers, they don't screen employees.
The don't have permanent screening equipment.
They don't store weapons while you're inside.
They don't fullfill any of the requirements, let alone ALL of them.
