I don't know if they will be patting down or wanding folks as they enter. Regardless of whether they have a means of detection signage, storage lockers for guns etc... they are not and cannot pretend to be a "secured area" under the law and could not use such designation to have you charged with carrying of a weapon into a secure area.

Whew, with that being said they fall into a odd little area as far as stadiums go where it is definitely Private property, as opposed to the E-center (public property). Basically it is like this, IF you carry, hide it well, IF they find it, take it to your vehicle, (where it may be stolen) If you are able to get inside with it and it is somehow discovered and they ask you to leave. As long as you are not causing a nuisance or interfering with the venue or scaring others then you have not committed a crime. (Not even trespass) if you refuse to leave, but..... it MAY be better if you did at that point because your option at that point when faced with a trespass charge would be an affirmative defense that you weren't bothering the venue or
scaring folks.

You'd have to decide if that was worth it. Here is something to keep under your hat, I am currently penning some legislation to make the above scenario on trespass better for CCW holders. That is all I can say at this point.
