I read in another article that the off-duty sheriff's deputies were moonlighting as security guards at the theater. The theater may have very well been a gun free zone, except for the armed security guards, and therefore, this incident is not as supportive of CCW as it first may seem. (I'm guessing the theater is gun free, which is why armed security guards are neededin the first place.)
I was in my local mall today with attached theater. After the CO theater shooting they had off duty cops as security. Then no security. Today they has a security guard standing in the lobby. Thankfully he was packing mace to stop any gun wielding madmen form shooting innocent civilians.
