NY Police Union Head Touts LE Carry At NFL Games

posted on November 20, 2015

A police union leader in New York City is working to get the National Football League to drop its policy that bans officers from carrying guns into stadiums on game day. 

According to WABC in New York, Sgt. Ed Mullins, president of the NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association, has created an online petition to change the NFL’s policy prohibiting officers from carrying guns into stadiums. His proposal comes in the light of the recent terror attack in Paris, where a soccer stadium full of people was targeted.

“This is not only a law enforcement issue, it is a public safety issue that must be immediately addressed,” Mullins told WABC. As of Wednesday afternoon, the petition already had about 1,900 of the 2,500 signatures Mullins is seeking.
