Ebert: Gun-Free Theater Proves Concealed Carry Doesn’t Work
In the wake of over a dozen murders at a movie theater in Colorado, film critic Roger Ebert rushed to decry America’s “insane” gun laws in a New York Times op-ed. Within the piece, he pooh-poohed concealed carry laws by noting that no one in the theater shot back at the gunman. But Ebert misses an important point. The Cinemark theater chain has a “gun-free zone” policy.
Of course, if Ebert had bothered to check before trying to use this murderous crime for his own anti-Second Amendment purposes, he may have found that no one could have shot back, because the theater chain does not allow its customers to carry guns in its theaters.
