WA Lawmakers Propose Allowing Concealed Carry in NFL, MLB Stadiums

by  |  Published on December 28, 2016

Republicans in Washington state are proposing allowing fans to bring legally-owned firearms into sports stadiums.

The proposal, expected to be introduced at the January legislative session, would allow citizens with a legal concealed carry license to bring a firearm into CenturyLink and Safeco Fields, the respective homes of the Seattle Seahawks and Mariners.

Current rules at the privately-operated stadiums prohibit fans from bringing in guns, along with many other items, and visitors must pass through metal detectors.

The Washington Post reported Sunday that the NFL would oppose such a measure.

“We haven’t seen the proposed legislation but we have a policy forbidding carrying a weapon into NFL stadiums,” an NFL spokesperson said in an email.
