    Texas LEOs Tell NFL to Pound Sand!

    They got those stink'g bad-ges and we'll carry to the games!

    Texas Tells NFL Their Gun Laws Don?t Apply Here | TheBlaze.com

    OMG will the NFL move the Cowboys and Texans? Will Jerry Jones have is son-in-law wipe his glasses so he can see which Off-Fa-Crs are armed? Will they institute a "Stop N' Frisk" policy? Will Romo's pocket collapse? Or will his shotgun go off half cocked like Manning in the Superbowl?

    State law trumps NFL policy. Personally, the only advantage of attending a live game is avoiding those annoying TV announcers, but at a hefty price. But stadium seats do not trump my Lazi-boy.

    Just a matter of time until the only place you can carry is in your home and vehicle.

    The places that I would want to carry the most in public are not even allowed. Government building, banks, hospitals, schools, colleges. I mean this is where a lot of shootings actually happen and they don't want the good guys carrying there. Boy that makes a lot of sense.

    Good for them. I have worn my gun off-duty in more than one NFL stadium, pre and post the new NFL rules. So far even with the patdown search security has never found them. Gun free zones, no matter how good the intention is, are just easy victim zones (regardless if it pertains to law enforcement or everyone).

    All the major sports associations think that they are the ALMIGHTY himself.
    Too many people put way too much importance in a sporting event.
    They are as bad if not worse than the movie industry.
    They, and the people(major players) feel they can act with impunity and say and do whatever they want because in their small minds, they think they matter.

    Go watch a local play, or a HS, or college game for Gods sake if you want to enjoy something worthwhile.
    I say to H.E. Double Hockey Sticks with the NFL.

    Why does the "state" think it has the right to tell a business how to run their business? You all get offended when the "state" tells people they can't sell more than a 16 oz drink but cheer when they tell the business they can't control what enters their facility, why is that?

    The business should have the right to run their business as they see fit and people that the right to protest those decisions by not using that business.

    Something tells me I should leave this one alone and enjoy the show.
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Because - the 2nd is NOT a privilege - a business CANNOT discriminate against one due to religion, or race , or gender -- so they have NO right to discriminate against legal gun owners - when ALL it does it put them in harm's way - they don't bother with armed security - they should be financially responsible for EVERY shooting in every gun free zone - including pain & suffering and punitive damages - see how badly they REALLY want to keep law abiding citizens from protecting themselves.

    WHY do you Always state "property rights"????

    HOW does anyone legally carrying affect you in ANY way? HOW does that affect your property rights?

    It doesn't and you'd likely never have a clue if 100 per day came in and left armed -so why the whining?

    Sworn Officers are never really "off duty" they have a duty to act in presence of a crime- What purpose does trying to disarm LEO serve? What purpose does it serve to try to disarm law abiding citizens who carry?

    NONE

    I've got mixed feelings on this one. Some stadiums are built with at least a portion of the cost coming from tax dollars. In that case, I think they shouldn't be able to say it is private property and regulate who can and cannot carry.

    Government buildings - Allowed in TX. Government prohibited by law from restricting CHL's to carry in government buildings. Can even go into the Capitol building carrying.
    banks - Allowed in TX unless posted with 30.06 sign.
    hospitals - Allowed in X unless posted with 30.06 sign
    schools - TX - not allowed inside buildings but OK outside.
    colleges - TX - same as schools for now. Hope to change in next legislative session (2015)

    I thought that Federal building were off limits. Along with court houses. At least the one in my county is a 30.06

    The business should have the right to run their business as they see fit and people that the right to protest those decisions by not using that business.
    In this case it isn't the "state" telling anyone anything. Its the NFL telling the "state" that they cant do what is legal for them to do.

    Bit of a difference there.




    A business should not make rules that are contrary to state law and expect everyone to abide by them.

    It is the law in Texas that off duty LEO's are exempt from other laws that deal with concealed handgun laws...same as any other LEO in most states.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    When the NFL builds their own stadiums with the own money, then they should be able to prohibit what they want. When the city/state builds their stadium with taxpayers money, then they can tell the NFL what they can or cannot prohibit in OUR stadium.
