    thoughts on this blatant hypocrisy in checking for guns at theaters?

    For the movie Straight Outta Compton, many theaters will be performing security checks at theaters. So let me get this straight: someone shoots up Trainwreck, the whitest movie of the year, and corporations and conservatives chalk it up to a random mentally ill person and do nothing to stop it...
