I got free preview tickets to see the Hobbit at the local Cinemark. They've got their usual black circle with the handgun crossed out with the red line posted up but I ignore it and carry concealed like I do everywhere else. Since it was a sneak preview there as a long line waiting to get in, being sponsored by a local radio station. We were near the front of the line and just before letting us into the theater three guys showed up in suits carrying a black duffle bag. They set the bag down on a table that was set up and I said to myself "self, that would be the way to bring guns in".

So I bladed at 45 degrees ( really I didn't, I just always wanted to say that) and watched as they unzipped the bag and took out the metal detector wands. I thought shit, there's no way past that so I slipped out of the line, ran to my Jeep and put my gun under the front seated and locked it back up.

I've never seen that at the movies before. They only did that at the one movie we were going in to. I go to a lot of these sneak previews, I wonder if this is going to become the norm.

Anyone else ever experience this?

More likely looking for recording equipment being a sneak preview than weapons?

They did ask everyone to turn off cell phones, there was talk about collecting all cell phones before going in like they had at a previous sneak peak but I didn't want to take any chances. My 1911 surely would have set it off and then I would have had some splainin to do.

I'm posting via mobile and I can't see what state you are in, so I apologize for what might be a dumb question.

Is it common for movie theaters to forbid firearms where you live?

That blows my mind

ETA: Never mind, just saw your last post. Legally, if the no gun sign isn't a proper 30.06 format can you guys legally ignore it?

First place doing searches would be the last I ever went there.

They seem to forget the guy in colorado went out the exit and returned with the firearms.

Not doing anything to make you safe. Why be treated like a suspect to watch a movie. Don't patronize any place that does that. Vote with your dollars.

So it's okay to have your 2nd Amendment rights violated as long as it doesn't cost you any money?

Reminds me of a friend that was trying to talk me into going to Dick's Sporting Goods on Black Friday "because they have bricks of .22 for $19.99." I explained to him that I wouldn't set foot in a DSG if they were giving away .22 for free because of their post Newtown shenanigans. The ironic part is that my friend probably owns around 100 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammo, is an NRA member, understood why I wouldn't go with him, and yet still went for his limit 1 box $20 .22s.

It's a private company. They can't "violate" the second amendment. It's not physically possible. Only the government or its actors can violate your second amendment rights.

Point taken. I guess it would have been more correct to say that they didn't allow you to exercise your 2nd Amendment rights? Honest question...

I've gone to early/ sneak peeks for movies before. They just dont want recording equipment being brought into the theatre. If carrying legally I would leave it on me at find out what they would say. At worst it would be to put it away.

My understanding is that a 30.06 sign carries the weight of law in texas and violation could result in charges. If it is true, that is one more way florida is a more free state than texas. If you get caught ccing in an unarmed victim zone in florida (posted business, not courthouse or school etc.) all they can do is ask you to leave. If you don't leave you can be charged with trespassing but thats the extent of it.

Eta: Allowing yourself to be disarmed for ANY reason constitutes a fail in my book. To each his own i guess.

That is incorrect. For the 1st Amendment you are correct because it starts with "Congress shall make no law.." However, the 2nd is really, REALLY clear with the "...shall not be infringed." There is no specification about who is attempting to do the infringing, just that it shall not take place.

30.06 is no more. Any place with that sign still displayed is in violation and can have a per day fine levied against it.

My understanding is that some stores will intentionally leave up "No Weapons" signs that do NOT meet legal requirements in order to keep the sheep comfortable and allow those carrying concealed to legally continue to do so. YMMV IANAL etc etc.

'No Gun' signs that don't carry the weight of law mean nothing to me. If the private business is marked, and the signs do lawfully prohibit, then I simply go elsewhere.

Regardless of whether they have a legal right to ban guns, if they are wanding (which is also their right, regardless) then I also simply go elsewhere.
