As everyone who has looked more than superficially at the subject, so called gun free zones are not “gun free” at all. They are magnets for active killers. One of that tribe went far out of his way to seek out the only placarded gun free zone showing the latest “Batman” movie to do his dirty work, murdering 12 and wounding 70. And now the Independent reports the theater owner wants $700,000 from the VICTIMS of his free fire zone.
Briefly quoting the Independent report linked above:
After a jury ruled that Cinemark was not responsible for the 2012 massacre in Aurora, Colorado, the owner of the movie theater is seeking $700,000 from the victims of the mass shooting.
Why? Evidently to ‘make the loser pay.” While that is a legal principal I believe in, had not Cinemark Theaters posted this placard on their Aurora theater James Egan Holmes would have taken his diseased mind to some other gun free venue. One quite possibly with the security Cinemark chose not to provide.
While the buck stops at Colorado Governor “Hickey” Hickenloopers desk, sinc the governor is ultimately responsible for providing adequate mental healtgh services, the act of posting a “gun free zone” placard is a known risk. Surely, the victims of mas shooting whose location was determined by a placard deserve better than a bill.
