    (Cookeville Herald-Citizen News) COOKEVILLE (TN) –A man who entered a movie theater here last night to see the Batman movie was armed with a pistol and caused quite a stir, police said.

    But he has carrying the gun legally, as were two other men there to see the move, police learned.

    And though the film was stopped briefly and police officers entered the theater, it all ended peacefully, with no one arrested and no one upset, according to Cookeville Police Sgt. James Harris.

    Can't really blame people for being on edge. But at least everything went over smoothly.
    I'm sure something witty or useful will make it's way into this space, eventually.

  5. Yes, definitely more people should be carrying.

    I wonder if anyone at the Colorado theater was carrying? But then again, if that idiot was firing off a AR, I would be hitting the deck even if I was carrying.

    They must have been OC'ing, otherwise WHO would have known they were carrying? I'm not against it, but when you draw this much unneeded attention to yourself it isn't good for anyone.

    I carry mine everywhere.The more I read this stuff, the more I cant justify not.

    Have not been to the movies recently tho... But some folks at 7-11 gave me some looks when it was exposed. Smiled and hopped into the F350 with no incident.

    I'm gonna have to disagree..all those people in that theater just saw legal and sane gun owners. Police came, everyone was fine, no one was upset, a good number probably learned something new, that is good attention. Would you rather just have the criminals killing with guns to get the attention?

  10. I am with Firefighterchen on this one, of course. The Brady Campaign and other anti-gun groups have no problem at all grabbing the media's attention to push their anti-gun propaganda down the throats of anybody who can be brainwashed into believing it. Of course every nut job criminal shooting people gets immediate media attention as well.

    It seems to me like some attention NEEDS to paid to the law abiding citizen carrying a gun for self defense so that John Q. Public can see a positive image of a gun to offset the negatives that are out there every day.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.
