Houston Rodeo Steers Clear Of Firearms

posted on February 19, 2016

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo said on Tuesday that it would prohibit both the concealed and open carry of handguns by private citizens during the 2016 season. Despite Texas law that allows for both, event executives are again denying attendees their Second Amendment right to bear arms. In 2015, the rodeo began prohibiting concealed carry. 

Joel Cowley, president and chief executive officer of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, felt some people were concerned the event would allow open carry and were waiting for the rodeo to clarify its position before they would purchase tickets. 

In announcing the policy, Crowley said, “It’s our goal to promote a family-friendly atmosphere. We don’t think the private carry of handguns is conducive to that.” 

Instead, they’re creating a gun-free zone that will make the event much more conducive to criminals and attackers … people who could certainly detract from a “family-friendly” atmosphere.
