    Default Theater Shooting Aurora CO

    After waking up this morning and reading the news, I was once more reminded how important it is to carry ALL the time. You never know when something like this can happen. Does anyone know what this theater's policy was on guns? I'm just curious if they had a no guns policy and how they will look at this situation now.

    This is just great. Now gun control advocates are going to try and use this to pass even stricter gun control laws, and once again ignore the fact that a law like that will only stop legal gun owners from protecting themselves.

    I wonder if the media and government will even consider that just one person carrying concealed in that movie theater could have saved dozens of people from death or suffering. We all know they won't. They're going to use this just as they're going to use the Zimmerman case against legal gun owners.

    Idiots like this waste of life that shot up that theater are going to make everything worse for those of us that legally own and/or carry.

    The gunman was in full body armor. I'm not sure if someone there with a concealed weapon would've helped, but it might of too. Who knows. This POS should be dead now.

    Default Theater Shooting Aurora CO

    Bulletproof vests keep the bullet from entering your body, not from breaking ribs and feeling like you are hit with a blunt object. A few shots to the vest might have slowed him down enough to get a clear shot. But then again, who knows how things would have really turned out had a CHP holder was present. I guess anyone on this forum would say that they would do their best. Or at least die trying instead of being unarmed and lie down watching everyone being showered.

    Hey Everyone,

    After this tragedy I felt compelled to start a petition to the Mayor of Aurora and the theater Cinemark.

    Take a look and if you agree I hope that you will sign.

    I also hope that this does not violate TOS of APC as I'm an active user and this is a great forum that has helped me professionally for years.


    Take Care!

    Everyone awoke to the horror of the tragic news that a gunman opened fire at the screening of the new Batman movie in Aurora, CO that killed at least 12 innocent people and wounded many more.

    As our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, we must realize that Cinemark Theaters and the city council of Aurora, Colorado has a municipal ordinance which makes it illegal for citizens that have Concealed Carry Permits (CCW/CCP) to carry into a premises that has posted "no guns" signs.

    In other words, the city gave private signage the force of law. Cinemark theaters has had a no guns policy for some time, and has asked law-abiding citizens to leave for exercising their Constitutional right to legal armed self-defense.

    Please join us in signing this petition to have the Mayor of Aurora and Cinemark Theaters hear our voice to allow citizens to legally carry and help secure public safety.

    That's why I created a petition to Steve Hogan, Mayor of Aurora, CO, Aurora City Council, and Cinemark USA, Inc., which says:

    "Please join us in signing this petition to have the Mayor of Aurora and Cinemark Theaters hear our voice to allow citizens to legally carry and help secure public safety."

    Yes it was. It is the theater's nationwide policy.
