While many businesses and organizations have prohibited the open carry of firearms on their premises, the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is taking things to the extreme, banning all guns, both open carry and concealed carry:
“It’s our goal to promote a family-friendly atmosphere,” said Joel Cowley, President & CEO. “We don’t think the private carry of handguns is conducive to that.”
In an official press release sent out Tuesday afternoon, RodeoHouston stated:
“The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, in an effort to provide a safe environment and promote a family-friendly atmosphere at the city’s iconic entertainment event, will prohibit concealed and open carry of handguns by private citizens at the 2016 Show.”
