Would you feel comforted or nervous or something else, going to a movie theater that had an armed guard in the lobby?
I went to a movie theater last night to see a movie (“Fences”). I’d not been to that theater in a while, maybe a few years. There was an armed guard in the lobby. He had on all black and the back of his shirt said “Security.” He had a gun in a holster.
I found this comforting. I realize that if there were some kind of episode, he would likely not get to the individual theater before there were people dead, but maybe having him there with the gun might be a deterrent.
Some I told today at work sounded alarmed at the thought of security with a gun in the theater lobby.
What are your thoughts on an armed guard in a movie theater?
