Movie Theater Shootings Raise Security Issues
As a matter of fact I don't. I find there are always people around willing to share the things they think I need to know.

Believe me, if I thought I'd get shot in a theatre, I wouldn't go...but I saw Stars Wars the weekend after Christmas, Sisters on New Years Eve, Brooklyn on New Years Day, and The Revenant last night. So I obviously don't live in fear.
Actually, I do remember those incidents, it's not something I would think of in association with Star Wars, but crazies can be anywhere you go or don't go...

Why would someone risk any harm from transporting to/from the theater if they are not actually going to patronize the theater? So your question makes no logical sense. I believe the point isn't to compare the risk of harm at the theater to the risk of harm transporting to/from the theater, but rather to compare the combined risk of transporting to/from the theater and patronizing the theater to some other leisure activity, such as spending the afternoon watching DVDs at home, or visiting a state park for some hiking (the latter also including the risk of transporting to/from). In that context, the recent news for which LibraGirl123 shared a link puts such options in a rational risk comparison context.

You realize, don't you, those are also always people with their own agendas about what you should know?

I could be wrong, but I think that most people got my point. Sorry that you didn't.

I don't think anyone had any trouble understanding what you were trying to claim, but my comment was aimed to help you understand why LibraGirl123's comment was relevant. "Sorry that you didn't."
