Washington legislators propose bill to allow guns in sports stadiums

Washington state legislators are proposing a bill that would let fans bring guns into sports stadiums, Sports Illustrated reported.

The bill aims to shoot down the strict no-gun policies at stadiums like Safeco Field and CenturyLink Field, which are privately owned. The stadiums are home to the Seattle Mariners and Seahawks.

The legislation would keep private owners from banning guns at public spaces, and allow people with proper license to carry firearms to be at the sporting venues with their weapons.
