    I'd upload the article but I can't do that from my phone.

    Wow, even the police department spokesperson thinks it was unnecessary:
    "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."

    I agree with him exercising his rights..but in recent events most likely wasn't the best idea to openly carry in a movie theater. I'm glad that the spokes person agrees and it may not go any further.

    I think he could have been a little more tactful, especially since he had a ccw. I do however disagree with him being arrested for exercising his rights...

    He also stated he had a concealed carry permit that was issued in 2003. I agree whole heartedly with open carry but after the curcumstances of the Aurora incident and the elevated fears of the unarmed public wouldn't have been easier to just gone concealed? No one would have known or needed to know. Still just as safe as open carry. Why make the scene?

    Another thread was all ready started by deserteagle about this...

    If he was legal in Denver then he was right, period.

    I'm saddened that so many would rather see only criminals getting attention in the news and not law abiding citizens.
