Man With Legal Gun Kicked Out Of Theatre

KSAL Staff - July 16, 2014 6:48 am

A law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings.

A man with a legal concealed gun was asked to leave a movie theatre in Salina on Tuesday.

After other customers saw the gun and complained, theatre staff asked the man to leave. When the man became upset, police were called.

KAKE TV reports that the man, who had a concealed carry permit, was upset the theater had no signs banning guns. He cooperated when officers explained that businesses are allowed to refuse service to anyone.

No charges are being sought in the case.

What I see here is a guy that should not be allowed to carry. If when questioned he should have immediately said ok I will take it out to my car instead of arguing with the employees forcing them to call police. He should have his permit suspended or taken away as he evidently is not responsible enought to carry a weapon.

Well Fred, he was just exercising his law given right. If you were in the theatre with a gay pride shirt and I was uncomfortable with that, would they ask
you to leave? He had every right to be upset by being singled out and forced to leave by being a law abiding citizen.

Concealed carry means concealed. He was obviously failing at the concealed part if patrons could clearly see his firearm printing. Perhaps the guy was just ignorant of how his clothing was showing his firearm, but he should have quickly left when it was pointed out to him.
