    No. A "no guns" policy should absolve them, and lay the blame solely on the shooter... he violated the policy.

    I can't decide if I'm being serious or facetious. Maybe a little of both.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I think that private businesses should have every right to set rules and policies on their own premises (I.e. No guns) That being said, if it is the businesses wish that their customers be rendered defenseless, it should be the responsibility of the establishment to ensure the safety of their patrons. The exit door is another example of this. Perhaps a few successful suits against Gun Free Zones will leave companies with the impression that it's in their best interests to let people look out for themselves.

    I don't see much other liability in this though, outside of the actions of the criminal and the theater management. Doctors can't predict patients behavior and the movie industry is not some sort of mind control device.

    The suit against the theatre over the alarmed doors is certainly legit enough to warrant pursuit. Obviously, the specific facts of the theatre's layout, the door in question, and other things will make a difference. But the overall question of "does a movie theatre have a duty to keep its patrons safe?" is certainly one worth pursuing. The answer is probably yes. Whether or not the theatre could have taken any actions that would have prevented the shooting is a different story. I won't speculate on the outcome of such a case, but there is certainly grounds to file it and take it to a court.

    Even suing the doctor might work, if he did in fact make some kind of mistake in treating the shooter. But the movie producers? No.

    I can't decide, is it worse to be shot in the face by a crazy man or shot in the back by some redneck asshole who brought his gun to the movies?

    LOL - same thing.

    You're more likely to be killed by your spouse. . . the stats are up.

    ...because there are plenty of documented cases of latter occurring, right?

    *edit* Also the "only rednecks carry guns* stereotype is old, tired and just plain ignorant.

    It already looks like there are some copy cat people trying to react this tragedy. It's unfortunate but not surprising. It would be good for theaters to change some policies to address and prevent future tragedy. This is very unfortunate, but things like this usually bring changes like safety lids on aspirin bottles, amber alerts, etc.

    He should sue himself for being negligent in not carrying a concealed firearm.
