Thread: Summerfest 2012
To bad it looks like Summerfest is a no carry zone. It says on their site No Weapons. Wonder if they will post at the gates.

"It's for everyone's safety."
Why? I'm not going to drink there anyways. Why? Because I don't feel like spending $7 on a crappy beer for one, and two, that would be against the law to consume and carry under the CCL.
So when I go back to my vehicle, how will I protect myself? Oh, the police will...suurrre they'll be able to protect tens of thousands of people on the way back to their vehicles every night.

Summerfest is far from safe, I'm only 21 I was standing by the rocks when 2 guys walked up tried to rob me. Lucky for me about 8 of my friends sitting on the picnic table pretty close by seen me arguing with them it ended in a fist fight. Since then I don't wander off by myself at summerfest. People are drunk off there a** and just are out looking to start crap with people. I know that ill be sober there because the prices are crazy there and ill be driving back home. I would feel a lot safer if I could carry there.
Summerfest is a "no (legal) self-defense" zone by statute.
Yeah, they were a "safe" place even before Act 35, but now they're really safe.
Now people won't be assaulted, robbed, etc., on the grounds, in the parking lots, on the busses, or walking to their cars.
I don't see the attraction anyway - if you want to hear whoever's playing, you can stand outside & hear them just fine. Or if you have a boat, go on the lagoon or in the state park. Both free.
Bummer, kids tell me the place ends up full of drunken bikers, and gang members, so i wont go, nor miss anything there this year. I hear "The Nuge' is going to be at the Racine County Fair; being he is all pro 2-A i wonder if he will allow carry to his concert.
Haven't gone in years, probably never go again. I have no interest in hanging around thousands of drunk azzhats and pay money to do it. I can drink beer at home, listen to what ever music I like and go to the bathroom whenever I need to all in the relative safety of my own house.
What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?
An interesting possibility for a temporary business just occurred to me...
I don't know if they exist, but somehow get rental lockers which can sit just outside the gate, with a guard.
People could rent a little locker to put their pistol in (or whatever else they want handy for the trip to/from but can't take on the grounds).
If anyone figures out how to do it, remember I thought it up & need a job.
another thought I cant picture how many people would stuff drugs in them.
im not sure if I want to go this year or not. this year my girlfriend is prego. so im not sure if shes going to want to do all that walking,also im not sure if I want her around there. then also because of how i ended up in a fight last time.
(sigh) it used to be so fun...
