Lambeau Field considers concealed carry

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Lambeau Field officials are trying to determine how the soon-to-be concealed carry law will affect them.

The bill allows the carrying of concealed weapons but not in buildings owned or leased by the state.

Pat Webb is the executive director of the Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District. Webb tells WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/iQftNF) he doesn't know if the law officially considers Lambeau a government building.

Gov. Scott Walker is expected to sign the bill after July 4th and the law is expected to go into effect in October or November.

Green Bay Police Captain Paul Ebel says they are dissecting the law and planning to consult with the city's attorneys and the Packers organization.

The NFL says guns are not allowed in any NFL stadium.
