So I can keep it in the truck??? but not at the concert? Am I reading this right?
In North Carolina we cannot carry into a movie or concert either, but at least we can carry in the cities.
Most concerts are gun free zones. I haven't been in a state yet where it's allowed, and every major concert I've been to in the last few years has had medal detectors and friskers at the entrance.
We'd like to, but can't always be armed. It's good to invest in some unarmed combat training.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
wow. ive been to shows all over ky, a few places in nashville tn, and 2 in florida, orlando and tampa, and none of them ever had a scanner . . .what concerts are we talking about here so were on the same page?
This is the Michigan gun free zones...

"Weapons are not permitted in any courtroom, office, or other space used for official court business or by judicial employees unless the chief judge or other person designated by the chief judge has given prior approval consistent with the court's written policy."
As for a concert, it depends on how many people the venue will hold.
Here in Nashville, whether or not they have metal detectors seems to depend on the type of band playing and, basically, the expected audience makeup.
The Elton John concert a few years ago didn't have detectors or frisks but the Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, etc concerts I went to in college did. Haven't seen any detectors at the Rhyman Auditorium yet (Train and Squeeze concerts).
I had a very hot female officer frisk me going into the Ozzy concert back in college. I can only describe that one as "being groped," when she grabbed my butt with both hands ... from the front. I wanted to go back through the line but my buddy was in a hurry to go in to see the show. Heh, the frisking was the best part of the concert (there's something about a woman with cuffs and a gun. ).
Anyway, we have a similar law about carrying on municipal property so I always leave mine locked in the car. I don't worry much about something happening AT the shows but walking to and from the car is when I get the uneasy feeling.
Tell her to buy the CD and spend the rest on ammo!!! Much better as she can listen over and over again besides being armed while doing it!! Problem solved!!
When Seconds Count, The Cops Are Just Minutes Away!!
Well, I'm glad we went. She got free tickets form work and we were in a suite. Jessica Simpson opened for Rascal Flatts. It was a good show. I locked the glock in the truck and went naked. No detectors or friskers, could have gotten away with it. Luckily, the night went off without a hitch.
I just cant believe we cant carry in the city, ya know where all the BG's with guns are...
2 weeks ago some 14yo punk kid shot a LEO in the back of the head as he was walking to his car.
