NFL Officially Anti-Gun


“It would be extremely dangerous to allow concealed weapons at sports events and clearly would put fans at risk.” And there you have it: the National Football League is anti-gun. They’re completely opposed to any move to allow Wisconsin’s freshly-minted concealed carry weapons (CCW) permit holders to carry concealed weapons into Lambau stadium, where the Green Bay Packers hold court. According to, the football folks in Wisconsin don’t share the NFL’s cut-and-dried policy on CCW . . .

Lambeau officials said it was too early to commit to any specific policy. They said they wanted to understand the nuances of how the new law would work, since there are slight differences as to how it applies depending on whether the building is owned by a governmental body or other entity.

Lambeau is owned jointly by the city and the Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District.

“We’re studying the issue,” said Patrick Webb, the executive director of the stadium district. “Our attorney says a lot of items are subject to interpretation, so we’ll continue to look at it.”

In other words, now would be a good time to email the NFL Commish on the league’s gun policy. Only they don’t accept email (I’ve learned). You can call 1 212 450 2000 and ask to leave a voice mail. ‘Cause that’s a lot easier for them to process, apparently.
