In NC it is illegal to carry a gun into a movie theater unless you are a law enforcement officer (on or off-duty), so I'm sure there is no way this could ever happen.
Oh...wait...in Colorado it is illegal for ANYONE to carry a gun into a theater, including off-duty officers.
And the theater in Colorado is reported to have had police security just like Mayfaire.
A gun free zone is just a target rich environment.
