  • Firearms in SEC Stadiums

    I'm a little surprised that I haven't seen anything about this issue until today.

    SEC comes down against concealed carry of firearms in stadiums:
    If HB 1083 is adopted to permit weapons in
    college sports venues, it is likely that competitors will decline opportunities to play in Oxford
    and Starkville, game officials will decline assignments, personal safety concerns will be used
    against Mississippi’s universities during the recruiting process and fan attendance will be
    negatively impacted. When similar laws have been introduced in the past, the SEC office has
    received clear statements of concern from our member universities due to safety concerns
    associated with the passage of such laws intended to allow weapons at our athletic events and
    sports venues.

    It is our desire to see athletic events and sports venues exempted from proposed House Bill
    Greg Sankey made the SEC's official position on a potential new Mississippi gun law very clear on Wednesday. According to a letter Sankey wrote to the lead
    "There were no arguments, those were ass chewings....."

    Yeah, there was an article in the Ole Miss daily paper about this.
    What kind of idiot thinks it's a good idea to have football fans packing??
    But it's being discussed...
