    Sporting Event

    I live in florida and as far as I understand the law you cannot carry to a sporting event. I enjoy going to one kind of sport and park in the most well lit area I can, and the path I walk is lined with police officers directing traffic and observing the crowd. The issue is if I ever need my firearm it will likely be on the walk or in the parking garage. At a game it would be hazardous to draw because of the crowd factor, unless it was upclose and very personal (course can't carry so doesn't matter), on the walk there are officers and drawing a weapon could cause them confusion on who is the BG, but in the parking garage between cars, the feasible use and possibilty of an attack increases. How can you carry in the parking lot but not at the event? Seems like an unavoidable catch22... The idea behind CC is no one knows, but if you needed it and the circumstances are right and you used it you violated the law, knowingly? Could you loose your CCP or just pay the fine do the court thing, pray the jury sides with you and go on? Seems like a precarious situation but not as bad as dead.

    Unfortunately if your following the law you can't. For those times you can't carry a gun you might want to consider non lethal protection, such as pepper spray or a tazer.

    Tuck it away in the car!
    If you're going to a professional sporting event, you've already been 'robbed'....

    Not that the parking lot is safe, but you are surrounded by thousands of individuals all walking in the same directions...you'll just have to take your chances.

    Me? I wouldn't give the pro's ANY of my $$$. OMO
