    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    In Florida the signs do not have the force of law as in TN. Their only recourse is to ask you to leave if they discover your carrying, then you must leave or you're trespassing. Otherwise, concealed is concealed. That's one reason I don't regularly carry when I visit my family in TN. The laws are too schizophrenic, you never know til you get there whether the place is posted, no continuity.

    I don't do theaters anymore. The reason they don't want guns in the theater is because they want to be the only ones robbing people on the premises.

    I'll second this. Wife an I went to a movie recently, (on a gift card we received for Christmas) and the cinema charged $10.50 each for tickets. Talk about sticker shock! Last movie for us for quite a while.

    Umm wrong on the WI side of the fence. If the sign is 5" X 7" and posted prominently at all entrances it is legal and carries force of law. If you get caught you can get what amounts to a trespass ticket Class B forfeiture.

    I really don't get where everyone from WI says you can just ignore the sign.
    Wisconsin Legislature: 943.13(2)(bm)

    Section 2
    (bm)
    1. In this paragraph, "sign" means a sign that states a restriction imposed under subd. 2. that is at least 5 inches by 7 inches.

    am. For the purposes of sub. (1m) (c) 2., 4., and 5., an owner or occupant of a part of a nonresidential building, the state or a local governmental unit, or a university or a college has notified an individual not to enter or remain in a part of the building while carrying a firearm or with a particular type of firearm if the owner, occupant, state, local governmental unit, university, or college has posted a sign that is located in a prominent place near all of the entrances to the part of the building to which the restriction applies and any individual entering the building can be reasonably expected to see the sign.
    b. For the purposes of sub. (1m) (c) 2., an owner or occupant of the grounds of a nonresidential building or of land has notified an individual not to enter or remain on the grounds or land while carrying a firearm or with a particular type of firearm if the owner or occupant has posted a sign that is located in a prominent place near all probable access points to the grounds or land to which the restriction applies and any individual entering the grounds or land can be reasonably expected to see the sign.

    I haven't been to a movie theater since the price of a movie ticket was still $3.50 for an evening showing and $1.00 for the Saturday Matinees...

    I have been boycotting the cinemas anyway. $20 bucks for a box of stale popcorn, a watered-down Coke, and a box of candy at the snack bar is robbery. They get it because people pay it. I won't anymore.
