    Personally I have boycotted all Larry H. Miller venues. They dont allow CC Permit holders to protect themselves, family members or the people around them. The educated know signs that say no weapons allowed dont keep criminals from doing evil. As far as the Energy Solutions Arena, I wish I would have known the tickets my wife bought for a show was there because I would not have had her get them. We wanted to have a nice night and take the trax, walk around downtown, go to a nice dinner then and then go to the show. But know I have to either figure out how to carry everywhere else and not the ESA. So do I stay unprotected during our time downtown, or do I leave my security at home, hoping while im downtown all night and not in the ESA that nothing will happen? The only thing the ESA has done is unarm law abiding citizens while they are downtown. If they are not going to let us carry in the arena. Then have a place we can check are sidearms so you dont leave us unpertected before or after our visit to your venue.

    Well... scratch me off the list. I'll no longer go there. You just lost business because I will not disarm myself to see a game.

    Energy Solutions, get real. A terrorist won't let some piddly metal detector stop their plans to kill thousands.

    Lets face it, those that are determined to make an ev ent like a jazz game or concert will does so dispite limiting concealed carry holders from attending an event. I personally would rather have my fellow public concealed carry citizen carrying. Do you forget why we are permited by our constitution to have the right to bears arms. To defend against enemies both foriegn and domestic. The main reason other countries don't invaid us is because a large amount of our citizens are have weapons to defend themselves. I for one will not attend any Jazz game or any other event at the energy solutions arena forever until this kind of harassment stops. Yes they have the right to do what they are doing, but like I said if someone whats to take over that place place they can do it. Especially if there sure no people have weapons to defend themselves. I don't trust anyone with the responsibility to protect me except me.

    Regrettable and, unfortunately in today's world, necessary. Whatever it is I'd like to see the ESC, I'll watch on TV, or read about in the news. Besides, prices are too high, so, it works out okay for me.
