    They haven't said if he had a CCW permit or if he was carrying concealed. If he did and he was, this is very bad for Colorado. That would mean they are arresting law abiding citizens.

    Edit: Apparently he was open carrying, legal everywhere except Denver.

    Seems like something is missing here. Thornton doesn't ban open carry, so unless he was asked to leave by the theater and refused, I don't see why he was arrested. Seems like an OC stunt to me. Why would someone open carry to a place that has a corporate restriction, that's just asking for trouble.

    Most all movie theaters up here have posted signs saying "No Weapons" so any private property with posted signs would prohibit you from carrying even with a permit, right?

    Yes in some state. There is some state were it has no weight law behind the sign.

    That's not far at all from where I live. I checked their municipal code and it sounds like they have an issue with OC. Their laws regarding carrying a firearm state that a person can carry without a permit if the firearm is not concealed and one of two conditions are met: the firearm is in your vehicle or on you while hunting. Anyone else want to take a look?

    I have seen four serial killers myself turn around when they saw that sign. In 1930 bonnie and clyde would never touch a bank with that sign

    In KY the 'gun buster' signs do not carry the weight of the law. Private business owners who 'make' ccw'ers can ask the person to leave. If the person leaves, that's the end of it, but if they don't it will be a criminal trespassing charge.

    OC is 100% legal in KY. I don't do it unless I'm back home in the wilderness of eastern KY.

    If he had a valid concealed permit, I think going OC was just asking for trouble, and he found it.

    "We are an open carry state," Barnes said. "We look at the open carry law and how it relates to this incident. He felt he was exercising his right to bear arms in an open carry state, and we are currently reviewing that with our prosecutors."
    It is the use of this tactic that bothers me. Arresting someone then after the arrest trying to find a law that will hold up in court. This is the same tactic used against minorities, kids standing on a street corner and everyone else we wish to make up charges against.

    Very true. But on the other hand just because the Government is powerful enough to arrest a person who has broken no laws does not mean they should. Matter of fact its illegal for them to do so.

    Our Government, at all levels, gets away with this stuff because we are not holding their feet to the fire. Immunity for public servants is lunacy. Laws should apply equally to all people irrespective of their "job". Police who arrest without probable cause should be prosecuted as should those above them who institute such policy and allow those violations under color of law. Given the corrupting nature of power, nothing will change until we start going after these violators with a vengeance.
