Going to the movies is as American as apple pie. It has been one of our favorite past-times since the early 20th century, and, even with the advent of television and the Internet, it continues to be a popular outing for many Americans. In the past, all that movie theater owners had to worry about was petty pickpocketing of patrons, vandalism and rowdy youngsters or other misbehaving moviegoers.
Unfortunately, all that has changed in recent years. Movie theaters have become as targeted as government buildings, airports, malls, churches and other public places with acts of violence, some of them unthinkable a mere generation ago. Most heinous was the July 2012 shooting and killing of 12 patrons inside a movie theater in Aurora, Co. It was a mass killing that stunned America and the world. In July 2015 a man shot and killed two and wounded nine in a movie theater in Lafayette, La. In July 2016, a woman, alone in an Indiana cinema with her son, was assaulted by a man. How could these crimes happen in a public space meant for family fun, enjoyment and relaxation? Unfortunately, it can.
