Amanda Beard's insight:

I can definitely see where this fan is coming from, many memories are made in places like this.  However, how is the current facility holding up if it is that old?  Unfortunately it might be necessary to build a new facility if the old one isn't up to code.

State House passes bill allowing concealed weapons in schools, day care centers, stadiums, churches

State House passes bill allowing concealed weapons in schools, day care centers, stadiums, churches | Sports Facility Management.4294339 | Scoop.it
The bill, which passed on a 68-41 vote, also would transfer the power of granting concealed weapons permits from county gun licensing boards to the county sheriff. (RT @Hope4Kzoo: R u kidding!
Amanda Beard's insight:

While I think you should have the right to protect yourself I feel like allowing concealed weapon carrying in stadiums is like having them in bars.  Most bars ban patrons from carrying guns on the premises due to the alcohol being served.  This is because it is their main profit is alcohol.  Still people get drunk in stadiums and can get very aggressive at events if things don't go their way.
