HIGHLAND 12 BOYCOTT

As I am sure you are all aware, Highland 12 of Cookeville has added a new no gun policy... This will only be one link in the chain of disarmament. We must make a stand now. Giving up small freedoms here and there are only going to lead to giving up one big freedom later.

Being an avid movie goer, this will be a tough sacrifice for me, but I will not pay money to lay down my right to bare arms. Further more, I do not think it is right to ask the people to pay money to lay down their arms. I propose that right here right now we start a BOYCOTT of the Highland 12 theater in Cookeville TN until they change their policy! Who is with me?

Yeah you have a freedom and right to carry a gun. The owners of the establishment has the freedom to deem guns not allowed.
Other movie goers have the freedom and right to not have to worry if they are going to be gunned down when they are watching a movie.

grow up.

This is about the same as the argument for guns in bars. The simple solution to me would be not to go anywhere that you feel the need to carry that big cannon. I know that a few people have a very good reason to pack heat. I also know that most just do it to look "bad to the bone"!

Those signs don't mean squat to me anyways. I just ignore them. I carry concealed, and always have my weapon on me and accessible. The only time I remove it is when I go into a government building, because that's a felony. But private businesses? Screw 'em. All they can do is ask you to leave or secure it in your car if they see it. If it's properly concealed, they WON'T see it.

I will be ready at all times to defend myself and my children.

It's not a new policy. And exactly what's the difference between an "official" boycott and an unofficial boycott?

News Flash, OP: Your rights do not trump the rights of others. I have a carry permit. I own many firearms. I also respect the right of property owners to not allow weapons on their property.

Yeah right. I hear this "I will be ready at all times" from pretty much every CCP holder I encounter. Truth is, they aren't ready at all usually unless they've been trained in the military or police academy or something where they're trained in true to life scenarios and receive coaching on maintaining control of themselves in out of control situations where they're having to fight against instinct. There's a difference between shooting at stationary or even moving targets and shooting at an attacker under the stress and mental fog of fear and and adrenalin. More than likely, you'd end up either stalling, missing, or shooting an innocent. Civilian firearm classes t5each people just enough to be dangerous. Anybody who wants to carry a firearm should have to go through the same intensive training as soldiers and/or cops.

"...pack heat"? "...bad to the bone"? And I thought I was old! I don't think I have ever heard those stupid phrases anywhere except on very old TV shows.

Not go anywhere that you think you might be assaulted? Where would one feel safe these days? Folks even walk into churches and open fire! Your suggestion is irrational.

And why would anyone suggest that carry permit holders carry firearms to "look" anything. With almost no exceptions, you do not even know that a person is carrying a firearm. How many firearms have you personally seen being carried in the past ten years? Your conclusion is ludicrous and demonstrates your unfounded prejudice against guns and gun owners.

You don't have to see the gun. I see plenty of people wearing their NRA shirts and driving around in their cars covered with NRA bumper stickers. As a gun owner, I find these people to be embarrassing and I have no doubt that they are in for the ego boost. Why else would somebody announce it to the world?

You think people wear a shirt or put a bumper sticker on their car for an "ego boost"? You must be a teenager and thinking with a teenager's brain. Never crossed your mind that it might have something to do with politics and genuine support for an organization that protects their rights, huh? And what does this have to do with the "bad to the bone" comment that I was responding too? If all it takes to feel "bad" is a shirt or bumper sticker, why would anyone bother to get the permit and actually carry a gun totally concealed such that noone knows? Sorry, but you don't make any sense at all.

Does the 2nd amendment allow you to bring your weapons into a private business, if the owner doesn't want you to. Quick call the Tea Party and make sure they bring their Tea Party pocket constitutions with them to the boycott/march. Do yourselves a favor and spell check the protest signs though!
