What could be the legitimate purpose for such a rule, except to disarm possible protection?
We've seen what happens in gun-free zones, now they're adding this on the list.



[h=2]New NFL Policy To Forbid Off-Duty Law Enforcement From Carrying Firearms Into NFL Stadiums[/h]

Via The Blaze:
A new NFL policy reportedly prohibits all law enforcement personnel from carrying their firearms into all NFL stadiums.
Police in Cleveland, Ohio said they received an internal member on September 11 from the NFL that said all off-duty federal, state and local members of law enforcement would not be allowed entry into NFL facilities if they attempt to bring their gun with them, according to Fox affiliate WJW.
An NFL spokesperson did not immediately return multiple requests for comment Sunday.
However, according to Cleveland.com, a spokesman explained that the new policy was implemented after deciding it would best enhance the gameday experience.
The Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association (CPPA) appeared to oppose the new policy, telling WJW officers do not like to disarm themselves.
“A police officer is never happy to give up his service weapon, especially when we have the right to carry it, you know, 24 hours 7 days a week and we’re upheld by our oath too to protect and serve the public on or off duty,” said Jeff Follmer, president of the CPPA.
“We are police officers 24/7,” Follmer added to Cleveland.com. “I don’t know why anyone would want to disarm a police officer.”

The Brain must be engaged before making laws not conducive to the peace and harmony of Citizens. Who can predict the murder and mayhem an armed off duty peace officer may not be allowed to prevent by this stupid law contrived by that tribe of firearm haters ? Disregarding political parties and liberal vs. conservative tags, this nation today consists of two types lawmakers and voters, they without common sense and without gonads and they who know right from wrong and whom love and support the Constitution of our Nation, namely the 2nd Amendment of same !

The NFL is getting so politically correct lately, it's making me sick to my stomach, not only with decisions like this, but others which would be off topic to discuss here.

Because there will be no security at all......


Seriously, I don't like the idea of disarming anyone, including off duty cops. I also bony think it should be an NFL decision. As far as property owners go, I'm not all that fond of anyone who thinks any law abiding citizen should be disarmed but I believe property rights trump my opinion on the subject. (Already discussed in the other thread).

Just a dumb move by the NFL that we find stupid and will have zero effect on how much money they make.

Who owns these stadiums?
I recall bond elections being involved in Arlington.
I believe a large portion was tax payer funded. Not sure what kind of returns they get besides local spending at businesses.

Don't track that stuff real close but read somewhere the city is having to pay to rename a bunch of roads due to a contract with AT&T sponsoring the stadium or some crap.

It shows that the NFL is being run by either aspiring or past elementary schools principals...
