“Right now we’re dissecting the law. We are reading it. We’re going to consult with the city’s attorneys, with the Packers organization. I think common sense will prevail in something like that."
And therein lies the rub. See, anything we thought we knew about common sense and guns went out the door the second Plaxico Burresswent into the slammer, after accidentally shooting himself in the thigh.
As is, the NFL has a policy that prevents fans from carrying guns into any stadium. However, since Lambeau is owned by the City of Green Bay and Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District (not the NFL), the league might not be at liberty to enforce said policy.

“I don’t know enough about Wisconsin’s specific law to know if the stadiums are exempt or not or can be exempt."
Well, this is all very reassuring.
