  1. You provide no security and ban the 2nd Amendment in a high crime area theater Ft. Worth. I cease to do business with Southern Theaters LLC, Movie Tavern.

  2. Since you don’t have your anti-2nd Amendment, family-endangering policies posted at the local theater, my family has visited your establishment 83 times since we last renewed our “Rewards” card. Your policy has now been published. 83 is where that number will stay. Thankfully there is a new theater in town owned by Southwest Theaters and they do not prohibit me from protecting my family. in their establishment. Goodbye.

  3. That’s the point of “concealed” carry, no one knows you have the gun until some idiot starts shooting patrons. Given the number of attacks in movie theaters, don’t you think you should remove your “no gun” policy? It just might save YOUR life!
    To tell the truth, I’m never without my firearm, even in your theaters. It hasn’t jumped out shooting anyone yet! But if some fool does start shooting, I will accept thanks for saving your stupid butt

  4. I go often , about once a week . But not any more . The ONLY thing that STOPS a PERSON shooting a gun , is another person with a gun . A Gun free zone and all the Laws in the world do NOTHING to protect innocent people . There will always be a bad guy or a sick individual , Law abiding ,trained ,and License gun owners are a God send when you or your family are threatened by gun violence . If the security guard at the GUN FREE ZONE college last week had a weapon , and NOT mace LIVES COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED .

  5. Nice job Amstar… creating a wonderful anti-gun zone for this to happen. I hope your insurance is paid up. http://abc11.com/news/police-3-dead-in-louisiana-theater-shooting/876500/

  7. Private businesses have a right to prohibit anything they want to. 2nd Amendment supporters rarely care for any other amendments, or the other ideas that gave birth to the Bill of Rights.

  8. Well I was asked to not carry tonight in the AmStar that I visited in Mooresville, NC. I did in fact secure my gun in my car and then went back into the movies to join my wife and family in the movie, but I will not be going to their location again. We have other theaters that do ALLOW open carry. I will be more than glad to take my business someplace else!

  9. With all my southern family roots and patriotic family members I’m sure out boycotting them will have a pocket book affect. Hollywood itself is a shame! #pro2A

  10. Do not support those that support liberals.

  11. Hollywood sucks anyhow.

  12. I never go see mainstream movies anyway. I refuse to give a dime of support to liberal Hollywood elitists.
    I will contact the theater group to voice my opinion.

  13. I guess I’ll wait for the DVDs now.
    Oh, denying one’s CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS e.g. The Second Amendment is a violation of the law.

  14. Because Southern Theaters have chosen to take the side against the 2nd amendment, I will be spreading the word to all my 20,000+ followers on Twitter and Facebook, to boycott your Theaters.
