Here’s one reason why movie theaters in the U.S. need heightened security in the aftermath of the Aurora, Colo., massacre. An Ohio man is being held without bail in a Westlake, Ohio, jail after he was caught Saturday at a 10 p.m. showing of The Dark Knight Rises in North Ridgeville with a bag stuffed with a gun, ammo, and knives. An off-duty officer spotted and followed Scott A. Smith, 37, entering the theater a half-hour early with a conspicuous bag. When asked to reveal the contents of his bag, Smith told the officer he would just put the bag in his car. The officer cuffed him and found a loaded Glock 9mm handgun, two loaded magazine clips, three knives, and one more on his body. A search of his home found eight rifles, handguns, gas masks, and bulletproof vests. Smith has no criminal record, but police believe he spent a short time in the military and doesn’t have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
