Gun-rights Champion Calls Out the NFL


Alan Gottlieb, Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Armsand founder of the Second Amendment Foundation is calling out the National Football League for implementing a stadium policy that bans off-duty police officers from carrying guns into games. The regulation is scheduled to go in effect at all stadiums except those located in the State of Texas.

Gottlieb says that the NFL, by removing the protection provided by the presence of plain-clothes off-duty officers licensed and trained in the proper use of firearms from attending games with their arms, have put their stadium attendees at risk. The presence of trained gun owners in public venues has proven repeatedly to be a deterrent to violent crime.
 According to a memo released by the NFL: “off-duty officers who attempt to bring firearms into an NFL facility will be denied entry.” Texas has a law that sensibly overrides the NFL directive. Texas law states that as long as officers attending a game check in at a specific gate and inform Security where they are sitting, they can have their gun. 
Perhaps other states should follow suit and enact sensible gun laws that protect law-abiding citizens from gun violence while protecting second amendment rights, notes Gottlieb.
