Can anyone come up with a good reason why sporting events should be off limits?

Places where I can see otherwise reasonable people turn into total jerks with complete loss of rational thinking include: druken or drugged people, fanatics at professional sporting events, and people involved in court proceedings (especially divorce court!).

I can't think of a good reason why any place should be statutorily off-limits except for the secure area of airports and the secure portion of jails and prisons. (And I don't really think airports and airplanes should be off limits, either.)

I have heard that the restrictions are put on us because of the public and the reaction some may have to things like open carry and school carry. I personally believe it is because they themselves are the ones afraid. They do little to do away with these restrictions because they feel we are all potential criminals or something little more than children.

However, I do think having some sort of civilian certified force allowed to carry on airplanes would be a wonderful idea. Have a 1 week course for folks, get them up to speed on the variables and situational differences in an airplane, et cetera, almost like a mini-FAM course. I don't think that will ever happen, but thats about as close to civilian's carry in planes as I want.
