The Bad Guy had 5 or 6 other theaters closer to his apartment (which he had wired to explode) but did not choose to go the closer movie theaters. Why?   :-\

You guessed it. The one he chose was a "GUN FREE ZONE". :o

<snip>

So is anyone suing the theater chain for their no gun policy that excluded legal gun bearers?  The theater chain obviously failed to provide for the security of their patrons while simultaneously removing the patron's ability to adequately defend themselves.
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
-William Pitt, British Prime-Minister (1759-1806)

Rastus, I believe that there HAVE been lawsuits filed about "inadequate security".
I believe correctly  ;D

A man who became a quadriplegic when a bullet severed his cervical spine in the Aurora theater shooting has sued Cinemark for what he said were lax security measures that put him and many others at risk.

I heard this aired in a podcast, and it led to me researching a suitable flashlight to carry. It turns out there is an enormous subculture of people who LOVE flashlights!

As you probably know, Surefire makes exceptional flashlights, at a somewhat exceptionally high price ; )

There are many other options available with higher light output, cost less, and are also very durable.

I made a series of youtube video comparing several models. There may be slightly better models since I did this last June.

My final choice was a Nitecore P12 which I carry everyday in one pocket, with Fox pepper spray in the other pocket. If i were to buy one today, I would probably get the continually variable output model from Nitecore SRT6.

I love flashlights, though I've tapered off (couldn't go cold turkey) in buying every one that caught my attention.

SureFire is SureExpensive and I tend toward the Streamlight alternative.   That is for tactical lights.

Nothing as scientific as you but I did a whole little story on various non-tactical lights for survival.  I do like the category by battery type on the review page.

I'm trending, as I get older, towards simpler.  I don't need fancy stuff like SOS, strobe, red lights.  Just a momentary on and a full on is all I want.   Though in the camping light, low/med/hi is great for extended battery life.

How do you know when the battery is charged? Does the red light turn green? How long to charge?

I just finished the book "Sheep No More" by Jonathan Gilliam... good presentation on threat analysis and preparation... well worth the money...

I'm old, so this might be a repeat... if you are looking for a relatively inexpensive P60 size light (Surefire 6P 2xcr123 size) you might look at Solar Force (Hong Kong)... you need to do your homework, but they sell individual components as well as complete lights...you need to check the light module for voltage and functions... single or multi brightness... and select the body.. you can typically put together a good high lumen light for about $35 + batteries
