Lafayette Theater is a Gun Free Zone, Bans Firearms for Customers With ‘Permits’
Written by AWR Hawkins Published: 24 July 2015
The Lafayette, Louisiana, Grand Theatre–site of the tragic July 23 attack in which a gunman killed two, wounded at least seven others, then took his own life–is a gun free zone.
The movie theater chain does not even allow law-abiding citizens with concealed carry permits to carry for self-defense.
According to the “Conduct Policy” for all Grand Theatre locations, the “possession of firearms or weapons of any kind” are completely banned and the ban applies regardless of whether the firearm or weapon is carried “openly or concealed, with or without a permit.”
The Conduct Policy also forbids “violence, intimidation, or physically threatening behavior,” as well as “unlawful conduct.”
