You will now have to go through bag searches when going to the movies

    How long before you have to go through security screening just to go to Walmart?

    That's a stupid idea. Another gun free zone idea. But it will only be gun free for the victims. The criminal will hide his gun better and get past the search.

    Never let something go to waste

    We can now look for food using the weapons excuse, nevermind that most carry on their person.

    So the murderers will kill the security personal before running in and gunning people down.

    If your security is unarmed it's useless.

    As we all know most mass shooters keep their rifles in purses, and pimple faced teenaged ushers are the most qualified to confiscate those weapons. I feel safer already.

    In the Mayberry thread someone not from the US said their bags get checked and they've never had a shooting. So let's relax on the melodrama.

    Not to mention, why bring a bag to the movies anyway?

    Why not just a walkthru metal detector? Definitely after the munchies.

    huntin for smuggled in non lobby food is all they be doin. watch the correlation between searches and increased cinema snack prices.
     
  18. Good idea. What happened to a businesses right to 'freely' do as they choose? Can't believe the same people complaining about this are the same ones who are quick to defend racist/sexist/homophobic business practices under the guise of it being 'personal/entrepreneurial freedom'

    America!

    Probably not surprising, but this is a must in every cinema(or any other public place, for that matter) in Israel. Having lived through it, I'd say that if you're not planning on a mass shooting/bombing then you shouldn't care, really.


    Well that would be a million times more complex than just going to a place that doesn't have security.
    Which is, in the end, the main obj of security, to be a deterrent.
