Rodeo grounds

Is concealed carry carried allowed outside of the concert venue at the rodeo? Basically at the fair grounds and livestock/vendor areas? Anywhere not including the stadium concert area?

Are you talking about the Fair Park fair grounds in Dallas? Or another location?

If the property, is city/county owned, the only time the arena would be prohibited, is during a sporting event i.e. a rodeo. Since I'm not sure of the exact location, I can't give you a better answer.

There is only one real rodeo going on right now.
Houston.

Sorry I meant Houston, and I mean the area around NRG stadium. We won't be going to any of the concerts this year. Yet another stupid place to allow criminals to carry andaw abiding citizen not to.

The rodeo is a professional sporting event. The carnival rides aren't. The carnival also isn't an "amusement park" under 46.035.

The property is owned or leased by a governmental entity, so real peace officers don't enforce 30.06 on the property. Thugs do.

Your mileage may vary.

I thought Houston had metal detectors and wands at the gates and wouldn’t let you enter the grounds with a firearm.

It is illegally posted (County owned property). They have been turned into the AGs office multiple times, but the way AG complaints work, the rodeo is over by the time they get to it and are in compliance since the signs have come down. Really shady stuff going on with this one.

:iagree: same “stuff” every year. The real crime is in the parking lots.

Confirmed - every year this is 30.06 and 30.07 posted at ticket booths. Each entrance has metal detector AND you get wanded before entry to grounds. The entire NRG park is the biggest gun free zone in Texas during Rodeo.

Not that this matters, but there is also a high number of armed plain clothes security folks intermingling and milling about, primarily in the carnival area.

As in professional sporting events, I'm less worried about security inside the event than I am leaving a gun in the car and getting to and from the event.

Sigh... Guess I'll have to leave my firearm at home, so as not to take away from the family having fun. Hard to believe the people who put this kind of event on would be anti 2a anti LTC.
