NBA and Random Metal Detectors
On the news last night and this morning it was briefly mentioned that the NBA has decided to institute walk-through metal detectors at random times during basketball games. This means that the Rose Garden will have these walk-through detectors during occasional Trail Blazer games. This very well may prove to be a hassle for CHL holders like myself (although I attend very few Blazer games). One will not know if the detectors are in place until one reaches the door. Therefore, a CHL holder must decide to either leave the gun at home (not a good choice in my eyes), leave the gun in the vehicle (which could result in theft), or chance it and walk up to the doors with the gun on one's person. The NBA says this is a measure to keep players, and spectators safe. I think it sucks. What do you all think?
