    That was exactly what was going through my mind when I asked what was considered a costume. I wonder if as many people will show up at the next showing of The Rocky Horror Picture show if they are not allowed to participate by dressing up? Or how about those folks dressing up in strange garb when attending sporting events?

    Will this rush to ban everything hold up if it affects ticket sales?

    Are they even emergency exits in the theaters? I have always thought they were just exits, and I've used them from time to time. The sign just says ''EXIT.''

    I say this because the alarm thing has been brought up regularly.

    They are just exits but they shouldn't be, but hindsight is 20/20 (except when dealing with the anti's as they don't see it regardless).

    Might as well try to ban evil. It's just not going to happen.

    Surveillance cameras would be more effective than door alarms, IMO.

    Doubt it. Door alarm would have signaled to folks immediatley something was going on.....Somebody would actually have to be watching the cameras at the time....doubt it

    Yes, for surveillance cameras to work they would have to be monitored while the theater is occupied.

    The problem with door alarms on a theater is they've got to be able to move people in and out efficiently between shows, and they don't want alarms going off all the time.

    It may be possible to have the door trigger a silent alarm, like during the show when it's not likely to be used, that would prompt a security officer to investigate the situation.

    However, no matter what we do there will be a way for evil people to get around it. Last thing I want is the theater to become a security nightmare like the airport.

    Would it be legitimate for the owners to take added costs of door monitoring and other safety measures into account when considering what to do?

    I really think banning guns will work. A BG armed to the teeth will see the no guns sign, say "oh darn" and move to another unposted locale to start his carnage.

    I'm sure nearly all already have ... and they've made their choice: put up pretty little signs, and make sure the insurance is sufficient.

    We're a reactionary society and by banning costumes it sends the message "we're doing something" As if he couldn't have put the costume on when he went to his vehicle for the weapons. Banning costumes does no good, but makes people feel better.

    Didn't I read that when his apartment was breeched they found homemade gernades and over 10 gal of gasoline? Where are the crys to ban gas sales over 10 gal? It would just as effective as the gun and costume ban right?

    Sarcasm off.

    I have spent this week in Canada for work. They have had a rash of shootings in the Toronto area over the past week or so (a rash for Canada, a slow night in Detroit...). You should hear the talking heads up here on ban this and spend money on that hug a thug program. There is even talk about trying to pass a law that says if you were convicted of a crime that involved a gun you can't live in Toronto. You think we have it bad???

    Can't wait to get back home...

    I'm sure that it won't be appreciated until the next armed violent attack. Even then, it likely won't sink in, beyond the few who are paying attention (like us, here). And even then, any "lesson" learned has every chance of missing the point: that defenseless, populated, publicly-accessible killing fields are just that.

    Dense is, as dense does. Trouble is, such density gets innocents killed.
