    Well, that theater was posted so... I don't see your point. If it's legal, it's legal. Don't bend over backwards for the sheeple. I suppose you would expect the police to disarm in the theater, too? Or maybe just force them to CC for good taste, as well.

    Would've been great if someone asked the officer if he was staying to protect everyone in case of a repeat performance since that's what everyone was apparently afraid of.

    If I was legally armed I would have told the Cops I'm not breaking any laws I carry for my protection,if the theatre wants me to leave they can refund my ticket and snack money since I didn't get to enjoy it,but I'm not disarming

    I understand that it was "posted" but if it was so un-noticable that the LEO had said something to them, then I better get a FULL refund (snacks included) for being publicly embarassed. Thats ganna be around $25 probably. With the costs of a movie these days, I should be able to OC a bazooka.

    Watched Ted with my Walther on my hip

    I OCd at Cinemagic in Menomonie, WI a few days after the CO incident. I didn't see Batman, because it looks stupid. But...I did see Ted. Usually people don't notice that I'm carrying. This time, everybody saw, looked and stared as I walked the 20 feet from the counter to the door of the theater 2. The kid working the counter looked at me, looked at my gun and smiled. They upgraded me to a medium popcorn at no cost as well. We ended up being the only people watching Ted, but had no problems. A few teenage girls did follow me around smiling and pointing, which irritated my wife. I told her it was my gun. ;-) She's still mad at me.

    How do you know the OCer had a CCL permit? What if he couldn't afford one?

    All these are examples of NOT exercising your right to protect yourselves and your loved ones for a fear of other people's fears. Just like muscle gain, if you don't use it you lose it.

    And I suppose that the DA would hold the responding officer, theater and the complainant responsible if one of the other patrons decided to go and break into those cars for free guns? Not a smart move. There's no bad guns, just stupid people.

    If he didn't have a permit, he was breaking the law already. TN has a Handgun Carry Permit, not a Concealed Carry License. You are licensed to carry a gun and you get to choose whether it is OC or CC. Regardless, you can't legally carry without the permit.

However, in view of recent events I did find myself to be very cognizant of my pistol. Usually I forget its even there, but I felt like everyone would be "checking each other out"...so I guess I felt kind of exposed; although I wasn't. Anyway all went well and no incidents here in a theater in Putnam County, NY. BTW there are no "gun buster" signs at this theater either.

    For those wondering if the OC guy in CO had a CWP, he did. One of the local news channels interviewed him at his home.

    No doubt most people right now have a heightened sense of alert at a movie theatre, and for good reason, however what could be the next similar venue for a shooter to enter?

    Regarding the useless "no guns allowed" signs at the theatre, they're as useless as a "no killing allowed" sign.

    Officer asked them to place their weapons in their vehicles and they do, and then everyone enjoys the movie :)
    I was OK with the story until the moron cops asked the OC'ers to put the guns in their cars AND THEY DID. I would have politely declined and if the theater didn't want me there, I would have demanded a refund and left, making sure to tell them that not only would I never return but, I would also post this info for thousands of pro-gun/pro-carry folks to see so they would be sure not to patronize their theater either.

    The cop was fine, like I said, just doing his job. If he didn't ask them to (respectfully) either leave or put their firearms in their vehicles he would have been in big trouble. He even told the theater employees to put a bigger sign up. I don't go to places that don't allow me to carry and I check every door and window for the signs before entering, the people who did carry made the choice to, so in reality, it was their own fault. And I'm sure they would completely be able to get a refund if they wanted one.
