This is a discussion on Was asked to leave a Cinemark theater within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by oldrwizr NC is so restrictive about where you can and can't carry(snip) I've mentioned it before, and it draws ire from some ...
Most states have standards for legal signage. A small cardboard sign is not legal. However if asked to leave you probably should. Just point out to the management their sign is substandard and could open them to litigation.
If the theater in Aurora doesn't have a legal sign therefore excluding CC holders by sight only ,they could be held liable for the deaths.
This avenue would be infinitely more effective than emailing HQ.
Of far great import, I'd say, would be failure to provide an alarm mechanism on the emergency exit doors at the back of each theatre room.
That's one more thing to charge James Holmes with - he carried firearms in when it was expressly forbidden.

Here in South Carolina "no weapons" signs must meet a set std to be legal. Our fav theater has no gun signs but they are not of proper size so I'm undecided if next time we go if I'll carry or comply with the spirit of the sign.

Things gun forums have taught me:
-Some people shoot guns others "run" them.
-I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
-Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
-Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!
You are probably looking for a law that states it is legal; the US operates on the bases of PROHIBITIONS not permissions; OC is legal because it is not illegal, except some liberal @ cities like CG (I use to live there).

"NO GUNS ALLOWED" signs give crooks the jollies because all potential victims have been disarmed for their convenience. I would remind those managers of this to point out the absurdity of their policies. By the way, I generally only go places which don't infringe on my rights. They have a right to post these policies just as I have a right not to give them my hard-earned money.

Calvin I've noticed that comic book superheroes usually fight evil maniacs with grandiose plans to destroy the world. Why don't superheroes go after more subtle, realistic bad guys?
Hobbes Yeah, the superhero could attend council meetings and write letters to the editor, and stuff.
Calvin Hmmm... I think I see the problem.
