What are the rammifications of a high profile case such as this and the Colorado shooting of last week? More fuel for the gun control crowd?
I live a very rural lifestyle, which involves a good many guns. I have a CCW permit and carry at all times on and off the property except in places
that will get you hemmed up for disregarding their notice, i.e. government buildings and schools. Note, I typically disregard the convoluted "no
firearms" signs that local businesses put out.
Mostly because they don't post them IAW the rules which means while they can ask me to leave there is nothing else they can do - unless posted
correctly in the right place in the right size they are worthless. However, that said I mostly ignore them regardless - it’s a concealed carry
permit, meaning no one but me will know it's there if done correctly.
Anyway, on to the movies...
One of the few pleasures we have out here is a movie once in a while. It's a 60 minute drive to the nearest theater on roads populated by many deer.
A few months ago while driving home at about 0100 or so after a late movie I hit one. It was not dead so I dispatched it with my 1911 so it would
not suffer. The response time for anything out here is sometimes 45 minutes even in a red light emergency. They don't respond to deer strikes unless
there are people injured.
Anyway, the point being I carry my firearm with me into the movies of course. I don't want to leave my 2500.00 pistol in the glove box so that the
“feel good” police can have a no guns policy at the theater.
So, should my local theater decide to put up a sign (which considering the local climate is not likely) - I will likely ignore it without regard to
its size and placement. If they go so far as to install metal detectors I will stick to red box.
If the county Sherriff (after proper checks and vetting) says I can concealed carry it’s stupid for the theater owner (with likely zero reason other
than “feel good”) to limit my right.
