Armed man in Pa. theater prompts 911 call

The man, who also had a concealed-weapons permit but was carrying the handgun in plain sight, indicated he was exercising his Second Amendment rights


The Hanover Evening Sun

HANOVER, Pa. — Hanover Police were called to R/C Hanover Movies on Eisenhower Drive on Monday night when a patron openly carried a pistol into the theater for the late showing of the new Batman movie.

The theater has no policy prohibiting firearms, and the man violated no laws, said Chief Randy Whitson of the Hanover Borough Police, so police stood by to make sure there were no other problems.
