Baseball Team Wants Fans To Bring Guns To Stadium On ‘2nd Amendment Education Night’
The Battle Creek Bombers -- the same Northwoods League Collegiate Baseball Summer League team that brought you the Fruity Pebbles jersey and the Magnet Schedule Giveaway -- is now upping the ante. Fans will be encouraged to bring their firearms to the ballpark, yep, for tonight's "2nd Amendment Education Night”. If you hurry you can still make it. Don't forget the ammo!
* Fans are encouraged to bring their guns (open carry) to C.O. Brown Stadium, as Battle Creek takes on the Rochester (Minnesota) Honkers.
* Bombers general manager Tony Iovieno told the Battle Creek Enquirer that the event "is a way to promote gun safety and to showcase Freedom Firearms, the area business that is sponsoring the event."
* Additional quote: “There are always going to be folks who don’t agree with what we do. We just had LGBT Pride Night the other night and some people didn’t like that either. You can’t please everyone.”
* Extra security is planned, and those with guns will be required to wear a wristband that means they won't be allowed to purchase alcohol.
* The Bombers will provide free trigger locks to fans.
* Additional fun fact:
CBS New York:
Linda Brundage, executive director of the Michigan Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, told the Battle Creek Enquirer that the event is an example “the NRA and the gun lobby working overtime to sell more guns.” She urged the Bombers, the league and the team’s corporate sponsors to cancel the promotion.
Be sure to be on the lookout for other fun Bombers promotions, like Ankle Monitor Bracelet Night; Kevlar Piercing Ammo Thursday; Sketchy Backwoods Militia Weekend; and every Saturday night, the Illegal Fireworks From South America Celebration.
