Fear, hubris, adrenaline, high velocity impact, libations, and glory: all the hallmarks of the Great American Sport. Indeed, and of course, what would all this be without the opportunity to carry into the stadium your favorite 9-millimeter pistol Dad bought you for Christmas?
A new bill introduced by a few conservatives is calling for just that. The bill proposes that private operators of public municipalities would not be allowed to prevent people with conceal and carry permits to bring their guns into the facility. This would affect Safeco Field and Centurylink Stadium.
The bill was introduced by conservatives Bob McCaslin (Spokane Valley), Matt Shea (Spokane Valley) and David Taylor (Moxee).
The three have serious agendas in the Washington State House.
Taylor sponsors bills that include limited mandatory motorcycle helmet use for people under age 18, a bill declaring a fetus has a right to life at the moment of conception and a bill prohibiting a government database of law abiding owners of legal firearms.More ›
