Gun advocates say the movie theater where a Colorado gunman opened fire Friday, killing 12 and wounded 58, has a strict policy against firearms on its premises – even for patrons with concealed handgun permits.If the left wants to go down the road of someone other than John Holmes being responsible for killing 12 and wounding 58, it's sad but it's not without a sufficient retort.
Cinemark Holdings Inc. owns 459 theaters and 5,181 screens in the U.S. and Latin America – including the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colo., scene of the mass shooting.

Dudley Brown, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, told ABC News the Aurora Century 16 movie theater’s policy prohibits firearm carry.

According to his post, the managers showed him a cardboard sign near the ticket counter that said, “No firearms allowed.”
If you gun control freaks want to blame the Second Amendment, you might want to start building your case in defense of Cinemark because those of us who believe in the Constitution are ready to get down in the mud with you if that's what we have to do. How many fewer people would Nidal Malik Hasan have murdered if firearms were allowed on base?

Just remember, you went there first.
Forty years ago, Archie Bunker was laughed at for making the case against Cinemark's alleged position:
