Why are you folks disregarding the legal right of a property owner to determine that they do not want firearms on their property? Or claiming that in spite of having been told by someone whose word you apparently trust (at least regarding other matters), you declare that you refuse to look and verify the existence of the "no firearms" posting they have told you about?
Do you think you somehow are earning bonus points of some sort by violating the property owner's posted rule?
Do you think that by sneaking in with your firearm concealed you are advancing the cause for open carry?
I am well aware of the extremely limited number of movie theaters that are not posted against the carry of firearms, and that the situation limits your and my entertainment possibilities. I am also aware of the fact that many movie theaters are located in places where bad things have already happened to other people.
I am in no way suggesting that you do not have a right to protect yourself. I am in no way suggesting that you should not be upset that a private property owner is so short-sighted that they will restrict your right to self-protection because of irrational and unfounded fears and biases.
I am telling you flat out that boasting of your sneaking around and violating the rights of private propery owners to control their property is not doing any good for the acceptance of open carry.
We have, through grace and good fortune, not had to fight the government for recognition of the right to open carry to the extent that those in other states are continuing to need to do. Nor, to a great extent, is the battle with the public at large. We do not have the panicked MWAG calls that are reported in other states. Our battle is down to the few shopkeepers and restaurants (locally owned or national chains) who still are unwilling to open their eyes and see that law-abiding citizens legally carrying firearms openly are not a threat to their person, property or to their bottom line.
But boasting of sneaking around violating their policies is not going to make them suddenly decide that open carriers ought to be welcomed onto their property. If anything, it seems to me that such behavior only strengthens their resolve to prohibit us from entering their propertry.
If you honestly cannot wait until it comes out on DVD/Blue Ray to see the movie but, for whatever reason, refuse to go to the movie theater unarmed, then you have a problem. That, by itself, does not bother me. But if your problem causes behavior that makes the private property owner less likely to change their mind about the issue, then your problem has created a problem for me.
Please stop creating and perpetuating that problem.
Thank you for reading my rant. You are now welcome to go on being dishonest and decietful if you so choose.
