The movie theater shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana occurred in yet another place that banned permitted concealed handguns. The shooting occurred at the Grand Theater. Its conduct policy openly bans the carrying of guns, just like where the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting occurred. While The Grand Theatre company owns three theaters in the area, none of the other local movie theaters that are owned by other companies appear to have a similar policy (Lafitte Cinema 4, Crowley Cinema IV, The Queen Cinema). . . .

This is a lack of corporate common sense, epidemic in America.
Well because of lack of corporate common sense I ignore these signs and carry in anyway...
I wouldn’t broadcast that.
For what it's worth, the last movie I saw in a theater was Team America in 2004.
We do not go into any business that has a gun free zone sigh on the front door. As both of us legally CCL you can see why we have not been to a movie in years. The mall movie houses in our area you would never go to on a weekend anyway. Like a war zone on Friday and Saturday night and I have no ideal were the scum and thugs all come from.
Warning: Gun-free zones can be hazardous to your health.
Now that crowded movie theaters are becoming targets for the deranged and the theater owners won't provide for my safety, that's another reason to stay away.
I've been told movie theaters are struggling. Stupid policies like gun-free zones won't help the bottom line.
We must close all movie theaters.They are dangerous and are killing people.
I stopped going to movies 30 years ago. I do not want to give liberals my money.
I wonder why they are not releasing the gunman’s name yet.
I wonder why they are not releasing the gunmans name yet.
Exactly. They surely know who he is.
Lots of details for once.
Webpages featuring Confederate flags, Tea Party and other right wing links take time to be created
This is why I have a Blu-Ray player.
[I wonder why they are not releasing the gunmans name yet.]
Officials could be scrubbing his profile from the internet.
Maybe we should try waiting periods before we go for a total ban...

There is no law in most states against it. All they can do is ask you to leave if they find out.
If you are properly CC, no one knows...I walk past those signs with my gun with not even a passing thought. I’m retired, my fishing buddy and I now and then hit a movie when the weather is bad. Although they have a gun free zone sign, I guarantee that movie house is far from gun free...we BOTH carry. Today, not carrying a gun to a theater is far more dangerous than carrying one. Odds are nothing will ever happen....however....
