The problem is that, when you look at the statistics of these events, the majority of them happen where it is posted as a Gun-Free/Weapon-Free Zone.

Louisiana has the policy on the books that if a business has signage saying "No Firearms/Weapons" it is enforceable by law. Now the question is, did the theater have that signage?

Oh, great

Anti gun nuts will use this to their advantage. Rather than admitting the fact that an armed citizen could've greatly reduced casualities, they will use it as yet another reason to outlaw guns.

That is because it is a widely known fact that people with guns will automatically close their eyes and shoot blindly into crowds at the first sign of a bad guy attacking. Of course this problem is magically and immediately rectified if said person can quickly procure a blue costume and badge.
