Skip to comments.The Right To Shoot Back: Another "Gun-Free-Zone" Fail

Gun Control: Colorado is a concealed-carry state, as a noted film critic points out, but so was Virginia when a college campus there was racked by violence. Like the school, the theater chain was also "gun-free."
In December 2007, two church members were shot to death and three others injured after a gunman opened fire outside the New Life Church in Colorado Springs as Sunday services were wrapping up.
That tragedy could have been much worse, but the gunman was shot by a church security officer and was found dead when police arrived at the scene.
On April 22 of this year a just-released felon went to the New Destiny Christian Church in Aurora, Colo., and killed the mother of Pastor Delano Strahan before being killed himself by a congregant carrying a gun.
Unlike the tragedies at Columbine High School and the movie theatre in Aurora, there was someone at these venues willing and able to shoot back.
Other than the shooter, there was nobody armed in or at the Century 16 theater complex where 12 were killed and another 59 wounded, unable to exercise their right to self-defense.
Colorado is a concealed-carry state, as was Virginia at the time of the Virginia Tech shootings. But like Virginia Tech, according to World Net Daily, the Century 16 theater's parent, Cinemark Holdings Inc., has a strict "gun-free" policy at all of its 459 theaters, even for those who have concealed carry permits.

Great post. My tagline all day has been saying the same thing.
Only good guys are going to pay attention to no gun policies.
It’s like these rules are going to prevent the next sociopath from action. No, they only encourage as the perp will have a free field of file.
Were it not for the jammed magazine the death toll would be double.
A Liberal Dream

Thanks for the ping.
Sent Cinemark an email telling them neither I nor my many veteran friends or our families will be patronizing their theaters until they show consideration for our safety by revoking their killer “gun-free” policy.
