TheBigLead- Fans attending Arkansas Razorbacks football and basketball games may be permitted to carry guns into the stadium beginning in 2018 after Gov. Asa Hutchinson approved gun rights measure Wednesday. Under the new law, concealed guns would be allowed at private establishments unless there are posted exceptions.
No schools or universities have chosen to adopt a 2013 law permitting faculty to carry concealed weapons. The new measure goes into effect on Sept. 1.
A lawmaker whose district includes the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville called the law “horrifying,” and noted it even allows concealed guns at Razorback football games and other sporting events in government-owned facilities.
“People like to have a good time before the game, during the game, people get emotional and angry during the game,” Democratic Rep. Greg Leding said. “I think the idea of introducing loaded weapons into those situations is just ridiculous.”
Brilliant. Just brilliant. I know there are plenty of people that are appalled by the thought of drunken SEC fans brandishing firearms in an environment that lends itself to irrationally belligerent disagreements, but maybe those people should have spent a little more time listening to the always unbiased gun owners of America. Christ almighty, blindly hating on people and their right to bear arms in public after washing down a dozen cold ones with a moonshine chaser is such classic lib behavior. After all, you need not read anymore than one NRA pamphlet to find the statistical proof that the presence of more guns actually makes every single situation safer regardless of context.
You want to resolve half-coherent fistfights between people that only support their favorite college football team more than the confederacy? Make sure they are licensed, locked, and loaded, because being a hair trigger away from impending disaster will sober a person up faster than any cold splash of water to the face ever could. Stupid Dems don't even realize that guns are simply for protection, and the only things more important than keeping your household safe is keeping your seat clear and the rooting interest of your section in check.
Plus, what better way to intimidate a visiting team than by firing a stray straight up into the air before kickoff?! Fuck southern hospitality, someone's got to light a fire under them Hogs!
