Woooo! Pig Sooooie! . . . Guns in stadiums would devastate programs – “Failure to amend the act could mean trouble with the SEC for the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

The presidents of the schools — citing safety for their students — have the right to vote a member out. That’s not to say the SEC has made a threat to the UA, but SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey did say it was the conference’s desire to see athletic events and sports venues free of concealed weapons. ‘House Bill 1249 creates concerns for the Southeastern Conference and its member institutions,’ Sankey said in a news release Tuesday. House Bill 1249 became Act 562 after it was signed by the governor.”
