Thornton Police Arrest Man for Open Carry

DENVER -- Thornton police arrested a Northglenn man Sunday after they said he walked into a movie theater with a handgun strapped to his waist.

 James G. Mapes, 48, went into the Cinebarre theater at 10001 N. Grant Street with a handgun in an open carry position, said police spokesman Matt Barnes.

 Police evacuated several theaters as a precaution and found Mapes, Barnes said.

Note: Open carry is legal in Colorado except for Denver and Denver county. Mr. Mapes may end up with a fat settlement for deprivation of civil rights.

Legal in Ohio too, but I wouldn't do it.
Most of the cops in Ohio don't understand or know its legal.
