@barstoolguru: You have got to be sooooo kidding me. You quote a couple of things and the murder happened 7 years ago......This quote was in the article also:
Is that article in the Huffington Post suppose to supporting your lawsuit idea or what?
Yet few mall policies could have helped catch James Holmes. The 24-year-old graduate student at the University of Colorado grew up in a white, upper middle class family in San Diego -- as close as it gets to one of Town Center's target customers.
"It doesn't matter if you have 100 parent patrols at the mall or at the movies," said Simmons. "That guy was going to do what he did."

All I did was post what others are saying and they said that they have to prove that the area has a crime problem in order to sue them for damages because they didn’t have enough security. The second article shows that the mall and area around the mall has a crime problem which will support the suit.

What you seem to be failing to grasp is that businesses and people cannot be held responsible for every conceivable risk or damage. Reasonable steps have to be taken to prevent injury and loss, but no one is expected to be able to foresee every possible avenue that could lead to damage, injury, or death.

On the other hand, if you were at work and some kids broke into your house and found an unsecured firearm and shot someone, you wouldn't be liable.
As for driving and the sun getting in your eyes, that is also something that can be foreseen and reasonable steps can be taken to prevent it, sunglasses, visor shades, pulling over to the side of the road, etc.
The person responsible for this incident is the shooter, plain and simple. I'm sorry that he doesn't have deep pockets for the victims to recover damages from, but that doesn't mean that businesses, that couldn't reasonably foresee or prevent a mass shooting are liable for his actions.

Still trying to see how posting a no gun sign is negligence. You started this whole thing by saying they were denied their rights. Now we are on to airplane crashes and fires. Please, try to explain again how their rights were denied and how that is negligence. And stop segueing off to other types of negligence.
In case you forgot these were your words on page one:
You keep trying to justify the second part (poorly IMO) but you keep failing to explain the first part. Every example you give us may be negligence to some degree but no one was denied a right that would have prevented the fires or plane crash, or even your flat tire.
WE need this; this is going to be a landmark case. when Cinemark gets sued for big money and the word gets out that if you deny someone’s right to protect themselves
AND don't furnish proper security you can and will be sued the GUN BUSTER sign will come down. We as a whole need this to counter react some of the knee jerk reactions from business owners
And as far as this quote:
The article brought up mostly ancient history (at least 7 years since the murder).
The second article shows that the mall and area around the mall has a crime problem which will support the suit.

As Landric has stated, most states if not all have laws that are on the books to keep people from letting a minor to gain access to a readily dischargable firearm. And yes there are exceptions for them gaining access while engaged in criminal activity, ie breaking in your home along with other things depending on the state.

In cases where there is a pattern of violence taking place at a location that is different. In Texas we have public nuisance laws that are in place to protect neighboring property owners from a business or home from making the area intolerable. There has to be a pattern that can be established in order for it to be used. Has this theater had a pattern of mass shootings?
I think you're wizzing in the wind to think that property owners are responsible for every action that takes place on their property. Laws and court rulings certainly don't agree with the way you would like it to be. Thankfully.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Russell said that in cases where courts have held businesses liable for crime on their premises, plaintiffs have demonstrated a pattern existed, for example, repeated robberies at the business or assaults in its parking lot, the newspaper reported.
the theater and mall next door has crime all over it and can be proven

Theaters require that speech not disturb patrons and interfere with their business transaction. It's why free speech doesn't extend to yelling, "fire!" in a crowded theater. It's a famous example. Carrying a firearm does not interfere with business.

I still hope the best for Mr. Piazza and believe that his effort educational and a force on one front of the self-defense rights movement.

That wager is specific enough to pique Mr Piazza's lawsuit interest.

I do not believe its a matter of CCW denial. The issue it not about the 2nd amendment at all.
As to the posts on this thread.... On one side there are those that feel America has become sue over anything and those that believe in the case of the Colorado incident suing is the right option. It is more about the business (theater in this case) providing a safe environment for the patrons. If the one of the speakers fell off the wall and injured someone are you saying the injured party has not right to sue.
Most of use carry homeowners/renters insurance which usually covers someone being injured on your property. Does that not imply we could be sued. Just asking..........

Those are two completely different scenarios that are not comparable. The case of the speaker is caused by a failure of proper installation or maintenance by theater employees or contractors hired by the theater. A mass murder is caused by an individual(s), not associated with the business, who have chosen to violate laws. In the case of the speaker, the theater was negligent or reckless; in the case of a mass murderer, the gunman is. If we make the reasonable assumption that the theater has complied with all the applicable building codes, they were not negligent in their actions and this instance was an unforeseeable event - if it had been foreseeable there would have been precautions included in the building codes just like fires, etc. Seriously, anyone who cannot distinguish the differences should consider themselves part of the problem wrt where this country is headed.
Bringing in homeowners insurance brings nothing to the argument. Whether or not you can be sued is irrelevant because you can be subject to a lawsuit whether you are negligent or not. Homeowners insurance serves multiple purposes - protect your property in case of loss, give you access to legal counsel you wouldn't otherwise be able to afford, provide a pool of monetary resources for both settlements and judgements. Settlements, in fact, are these suits' ultimate goal - collecting money from deep pockets despite there being no legitimate reason to.
