Now that the air has cleared a bit on the recent mass shooting by a crazy nutbag in Colorado, I have been thinking a lot about gun free zones.
Aurora would be a gun free zone if not for the 2003 Colorado law that took local gun regulations out of the hands of the local municipalities. Though that law does not stop business from banning firearms on their premises.
CineMark is definitely a company that has decided to ban firearms on its premises.
Now Colorado has roughly 5.1 million citizens and roughly 130,000 concealed carry permits have been issued since 2003, So my new math brings that to around 1 in 39 people have a carry permit.
So the average theater has roughly 150ish seats depending on size, which means that we are looking at probably 2-3 people that statistically could have been carry permit holders in that theater.
How long is it going to take for some lawyer to come up with one of those people (or family of a victim, heaven forbid) that had a permit but were not able to carry due to the theater policy?
By disarming their customers have they taken on the responsibility to protect them?
What are the chances of CineMark still existing as a going concern once they loose a lawsuit based on the fact that they failed to protect their customers?
Staring down the start of another 20+ hour day of travel.
As a bonus it will be 120 degrees in the shade where I am headed this go round.
I can’t wait…
Been playing on Facebook for a few years, after all that time this video sums up how I feel about Facebook.
Dear FaceCock don’t let the door hit you in the ass…
Unfortunately I will not be running the Web Suicide Machine anytime soon, as all my fraternity brothers are still on there, as well as a few other friends I keep up with.
Blogroll partially updated with everyone I thought to include on this first go round. Mostly just the people that I try and read on a semi regular basis.
When the old blog went down in flames due to the weenies out there on the intewebs that make it so we can’t have nice things, I lost a lot.
8 years of regular blogging and that last sporadic year or
two Three when I was just playing at blogging and was wasting far too much time on FaceCock.
So now I am going to try and give this blogging thing a good run. Won’t be mostly guns this time around though. It will include Motorcycles, and whatever is pissing me off for the day.
