The National Football League passed a new rule that bans off-duty police officers from bringing guns inside stadiums – but Texas has chosen to adhere to the policy in its own way.
Check it out:
Texas state law states that so long as off-duty law enforcement officers check in at specific gates and let stadium employees know where they’ll be sitting, they will be allowed to carry a firearm, according to KTXA-TV.
This flies in the face of an NFL memo that declares that off-duty officers who “attempt to bring firearms into an NFL facility will be denied entry.”
Ron Pinkston of the Dallas Police Association told KTXA that he think the law is “sensible” and prudent.
