The American wet dream: sue somebody.
It's no wonder everything is so expensive in the United States.
I keep looking for puddles to slip in, and crack my wrist, with no luck. Maybe when it's winter, and it snows again.
Past that, I'm having a hard time trying to find something to sue some large corp over. Give me time, though...
"Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it." - Judge Learned Hand
Well I have never heard of those laws and I am not sure if I agree with them. Now lets get back on topic.
I'm glad to see private entities are being held responsible for maintaining well-documented public hazards.Front Sight's Answer to Aurora, CO Massacre
I have the answer to the insanity of Gun Free Zones and I am putting my money where my mouth is by paying the legal fees of the first victim to file a very specific lawsuit against the Cinemark Movie Theater chain that denied responsible citizens their right to carry a concealed weapon to defend themselves against the murderous rampage of a deranged killer.
Why am I doing this? Because it needs to be done! Victims of the Aurora, CO shooting need to file a lawsuit against the Cinemark Theater chain for denying them the ability to defend themselves by prohibiting the carry of licensed and permitted, concealed weapons into the theater. I believe that a private company certainly has the choice to deny patrons the right to carry a gun into the building, but in denying the right to self defense with a gun, once the private company accepts money from the patron, they also accept the liability to protect the patron TO THE SAME LEVEL that the patron would have had available to them, had the private company allowed them to carry their licensed and permitted weapons for self defense.
I believe a jury of Aurora, CO citizens will recognize the responsibility and liability the Cinemark Theater accepted and set new legal precedence with a favorable jury verdict for the victims of the shooting. This in turn will cause every “Gun Free Zone” in America to rethink their position or face a similar verdict.
If you want your business to be a gun-free zone, then you should have to demonstrate a 'need', provide armed security, pay a special insurance due to the increased crime, and file for an annual 'public hazard' permit.
