I'm not sure it's illegal at all.
Is there a specific prohibition in the Colorado law from bringing a permitted concealed gun in a theatre? If not, you're not breaking the law, you're just breaking the theatre's policy. If you don't get caught, then you're fine. If there is a law that specifically prohibits it, I can't find it.

The surrendering and outing his booby traps is the part that has me confused? Why go to all that trouble, and then not see it through?
Could he have just lost his nerve after seeing the carnage? Maybe one of the victims triggered a moment of regret?
Of course this shooting is a terrible tragedy, but calls for more gun control are misguided.

I've missed where he's cooperated on telling anyone, anything? He gave them details on the Boobytraps? I figured they just took care in approaching the apartment and found it was a trap?

He got out of his seat ten minutes into the movie, then returned less than an hour later.
Isnt it weird how these shooters are normal one minute, trained military killers the next, then give themselves up alive to the police. Almost like he is just the patsy for a wider military operation.

I am having trouble buying this guy acted alone at this point-Its the way he told the cops about his booby trapped apartment.
Could it be he was forced in some way to do this-by psychologial/mind control or other manipulation-but realized the horror of what he had done in the cinema,thus leading to him to warn the cops about his booby traps in order to prevent more death?
Could he have sort of woken up before he was supposed to?
I know I am in MK Ultra territory here,but the story just does not seem to add up the way the news is telling it IMO.

If there theater did indeed have a no guns policy, they are royally screwed.
By forbidding people from carrying a gun, they assume full legal liability for the safety of everyone in that building. Expect that theater, and more specifically its parent company to file bankruptcy sometime soon due to the flood of lawsuits about to be dropped on it.
