It depends on the state. It is my understanding that in some states you will be escorted off property while in others you can be cuffed, stuffed, and escorted downtown.

That is why everyone is hedging what they advise; IT VARIES FROM ONE AREA TO ANOTHER, AND WE DON'T ALL LIVE IN THE SAME COUNTY.

Depends on your state, here in Indiana all they can do is ask you to leave. If you don't leave then they can file charges. Here a "no firearms" sign has no legal weight, except for govt buildings, aircraft etc.

The Aurora shooting only solidifies my need to carry. A mass shooting can happen anywhere, hell one even happened recently at a beauty salon, tho i don't recall where.

I live by the saying, "Idrather be tried by 12 than carried by 6!". Meaning id rather be fined and/or sit in a cell for a night or two than be killed because I needed my gun.

Well here in Oklahoma they recently passed open carry. Since then I went to a movie theater and noticed a "No open carry weapons permitted" sign. However I guess that doesn't apply to concealed now does it.

In Mo there can be a $100.00 fine for ignoring the sign. Best choice is to conceal properly and don't get caught. If you do get caught, just leave. I always carry and never have a problem. Ignoring a sign while open carry is probably a chance to meet the police.

Don't they tell you to do that on the movie screen before the movie starts?
Oh, wait, that's "turn off your cell phone and other electronic devices".

That's to keep the sheeple from panicking and stampeding.

That depends on the laws. If there aren't any "no weapons" signs and you can carry concealed legally, then of course you can. Here in Utah those signs are meaningless. If they find that I am carrying a gun, the most they can do is ask me to leave. I'm going to see Skyfall tonight as well. The theater I'm going to has a no weapons policy.

That's not going to stop me.

No...those signs are to satisfy the liberal patrons that things are safe in that particuler business. They can now feel content that while watching the movie there will be no harm come to them. They feel good that their local theatre is run by responsible management who can make strong decisions on the customers behalf.

I may be wrong but I believe in mo they also have to have the sign on every door. If you get caught with it they can only ask you to leave. If you refuse they can get you for trespassing.

By not obeying their wishes you are playing into the reason why they don't want people carrying guns to begins with. If they ask you not to, take your business somewhere else, I do. Your right to carry a gun doesn't give you the authority to do what you want on someone else's property. I'm a gun owner and a vet, please don't assume I am a liberal.
