New state law won't change rules: No guns at Lambeau Field

The Green Bay Packers will maintain a weapons ban at Lambeau Field even after Wisconsin’s new concealed carry law takes effect Tuesday.

According to the La Crosse Tribune, the team announced it will continue to ban weapons in the stadium and parking lots. Those with proper permits can keep weapons locked in their vehicle.

The law that is taking effect allows individuals to carry concealed handguns, knives and electronic weapons if they apply and are granted a permit. However, businesses can prohibit the possession of concealed weapons on their property, something the Packers are choosing to do.

Violators could be subject to $177 fine for trespassing.
