Sheriff Clarke Chimes in on Washington’s Proposal for Firearms at Sporting Events

Lawmakers  in Washington are looking at doing something very controversial. The Evergreen State is considering allowing firearms at sporting events and stadiums, where they are currently banned. Although the National Football League (NFL) has a strict anti-gun policy at their stadiums, this bill could force them to change their rules at the Seahawks’ Century Field.


“We haven’t seen the proposed legislation but we have a policy forbidding carrying a weapon into NFL stadiums,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy told The Washington Post.

Under House Bill 1015 (HB 1015), stadiums would not be allowed to deny concealed carriers the right to carry in the stadium or on the stadium grounds.

Co-sponsored by Representatives Shelly Short (R-Republic), David Taylor (R-Yakima), and Bob McCaslin (R-Spokane Valley), the bill is scheduled to be introduced during the 2017 legislative session.
Anti-gunners took to Twitter to show their disdain for the proposed legislation.



Milwaukee Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke, however, believes this is a good idea.

After all, when do criminals following laws and procedures?

All it takes is a small handful of people to ruin it for the far and few.

Will Washington State preserve the Second Amendment? With how progressive the state it, it’s unlikely. But we’re hopeful.
