CLEVELAND — A new NFL policy will prohibit off-duty Cleveland police officers from taking their guns into FirstEnergy Stadium.
Police say they received an internal memo on September 11 that the NFL banned all off-duty federal, state and local law enforcement officers from carrying weapons in any NFL stadium or facility.
I guess it could simply be another gradual shift toward disarming all people

Guns don't kill people...
Power tripping LEO's on Bud Lite do.
The USA has extremely liberal gun laws so you are free to attempt to reconcile your bankrupt spirit with guns and ammo. Fail.
Charlotte Mecklenburg police told Eyewitness News the no-weapon rule is part of new NFL recommendations including the ban on bags, and off-duty officers carrying guns are more of a risk.

Auh my friend don't feed the trolls or ones who have a different opinion and want to voice it; some opinions are not worth commenting on; others have good points and deserve attention... No food and they usually go away... Or like a child just scream louder... You and I will not change our opinion and neither will a troll until they are robbed, mugged, raped, or had the stuffing's scared out of them by a gang or B.G. Funny I have seen more women at the gun range than ever before. Good for them!

If it's a business move, it's a losing one. Texas is among the states that permit and, in many cases, outright require every law enforcement officer in their state, currently working for a LEO agency to have their weapon in their possession 24/7.
In the case of those? The NFL made a decision to reject not just the cop, but his entire family and very likely, the people that family knows and associates with.
They played political correctness to suck up to the Anti-Gun crowd. What they've accomplished is a body count on a tragedy not yet done (with this announcement, every nut case knows nothing stops them now) and a BIG loss of business from a field of work that directly covers a couple million and touches 10's of millions ...sympathetic to the WRONG side of it for the NFL profit line.
Ignorance has a name. Today, it's the "NFL".
The *ONLY* reason I tolerate entering a place that prohibits my own CCW weapon is that I know these are places with cops, both on and off duty who are also carrying weapons.
Another example... FBI Agents cannot, by policy get drunk. *EVER*. Why? They carry. 24/7. Always. Never without it. Never. Ever. Hence.. they cannot, by policy, drink (to excess..if at all). Ever.
