If you have these in your area and you frequent them you should know that they are anti-gun and do not allow their patrons to exercise their rights to keep and bear arms.

The wife and I tried to go to a movie yesterday and on the door of the local Carmike was a sign that said "for the safety and security of our patrons firearms are not allowed in the theater." I promptly lectured them on their liberal bullshit and told them I would take my money and business elsewhere.

Spread the word. Do not give your money to anti-gun liberal bastards that are trying to strip us of our constitutional rights!

That's good to know. I wouldn't take my daughter to a movie if I knew someone in there had a gun.

that's a wonderful policy provided they have an armed guard and metal detector at the door to ensure EVERYONE is on a level playing field (including the sychopath).

I won't give those (soft targets) er businesses my money either. Take it somewhere else. Criminals love those signs.

So the armed guard would be the first to go. Then what? Just sayin! I take my chances in a room full of responsible citizens with guns any day. When is the last time a gun show was attacked?

I respect your statement but you would be surprised how few places you would be able to go if only you knew. I spot a lot of people carrying in stores and malls and movie theaters. There are a few tales that give it away if you know what to look for. The ones that only carry occasionally really give it away and are very easy to spot.

Good info RWalker.

The posting of those signs is SO IDIOTIC ... yet, people still post them .... and the sheep still flock to their theaters. Might as well tape money to your shirt instead of using a wallet! Come n get it criminals! Free pickins! :shock:

BAAAAAH! BAAAAH! BAAAAAAAAAAAH! :roll:

My area is pretty redneckish, so I think if people actually took the time to read the sign, a lot less people would give them their business. I am going to get the word out locally as much as I can so businesses like this realize that they are only creating victims and sitting ducks for would be mass murderers. I am also sending a letter to their home base in GA of all states!

I guess you had better not leave your house then hoss because I guarantee someone around you, whether it be in the store, mall, theater, church, etc. is carrying. Unless, of course, you live in one of the states that has outlawed all guns except the ones carried by outlaws. :roll:

I hate to say it but just like many have a right to carry a business has a right to post the sign, if they really think someone with criminal intent is going to abide by a sign then shame on them. The sad part of the whole thing is that in a civilized society (which likely doesn't exist anymore) there would be a need for neither. :(

Well said and to add to it I we have a right to spend our money elsewhere as well.

BTW Aurora had these signs posted.

To say the truth we don't go to see a movie too often nor do I carry often but I would probably be guilty of walking right past a sign thinking nothing of it, I would wonder if something should happen would the establishment actually put up much of a fuss if a crime was prevented? If so around here anyway I would think they might as well just close up shop.

If it were a real anti gun establishment. They would probably sue for getting their carpet dirty. After the TM BS that happened my choice to carry is for my family's protection only. Sounds wrong but that's the way it is.

Flyer, in a dark rapid spontaneous moment how in the hell would you know where shots are going to be fired? If you have it in a situation like that then IMO you either (if lucky enough to not be a victim or a family member) or you shouldn't even be allowed to carry again. In a case where someone freezes or finally finds out that it ain't as easy to return fire as it is to shoot a target or animal I could more understand that than being in the mindset that if you don't shoot toward me or mine I won't fire. Nothing personal JMHO having had to use a weapon against a human & receiving fire I found it isn't the easiest thing to do & if you wait you may never get the shot.
