    Considering that they had an employee die of a drug overdose at the PPL Center, maybe they should let us carry, since they are not doing proper employee screening and hiring people like this to work in an unarmed victim zone.

    Also attended Disney on Ice, carried with no issues. No metal detectors, they just glanced in my wife's purse and barely glanced in my daughter's purse. Of course, I texted a friend ahead of time who went to the show prior to mine to see if they were wanding or patting anyone down. She thought I was joking but I was like, "No, b/c I have to plan my wardrobe accordingly, either with "accessories" or without." Either way, I wanted to know because besides a firearm, I carry a pocket knife, flashlight, OC spray and fixed blade on my person anyhow and I didn't want to be hassled. Need to determine whether they are going to continue to wand for games as someone mentioned above. Iron Pigs there is no problem so I was hoping for none here too.

    Walk through metal detectors are now present, even set up for Disney on ice yesterday. Probably security theater and the sensitivity turned down - didn't test that theory though.

    The walkthrough detectors are sensitive enough that steel toed shoes or a few keys will set them off, however a small amount of change or normal sized belt buckles will not.

    Although the stadium is managed Global Spectrum, isn't the stadium itself owned by the city of Allentown? If the city is in fact the owner wouldn't preemption laws prohibit them from restricting lawful carry?
