I just read an article at (https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/tim...&utm_content=) that claims Cinemark does not allow concealed carry in their theaters.
I wrote the following letter to them (via their website - https://www.cinemark.com/contact-us.aspx):
I just read an article that claims you do not allow concealed carry in your theaters. Is this true? If so, you will*be losing me and my family as customers and I will be telling all of my friends as well. If your policy is to ban law-abiding citizens from entering your theaters with legally concealed handguns, then you have succeeded in allowing criminals to act unhindered with horrific consequences. Criminals will not abide by "Gun-free Zone" signs. If you keep guns out of your theaters, then only criminals will have guns in your theaters. If this is your policy, then you are also opening yourself up to major law suits, because your policy not only prevents people from defending themselves, but also puts them in grave danger.
Does anyone know if this is Cinemark's policy? I have not seen any signs posted in the theaters I've gone to in Texas. This is the time to act to expand our rights. We need to lobby our representatives to remove these senseless restrictions to our constitutionally protected right to bear arms. There should be no restrictions to where a law-abiding citizen can carry.
