Did Cinemark Theaters "Gun Free Zone" Help Lead to High Number of Dead and Wounded in Aurora Co?

“Headquartered in Plano, TX, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. is a leader in the motion picture exhibition industry with 459 theatres and 5,181 screens in the U.S. and Latin America as of March 31, 2012,” their website reports. Cinemark owns the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, scene of last night’s mass shooting. Cinemark doesn’t allow anyone other than law enforcement officers to carry legal firearms in their theaters.

Do criminals about to do a mass shooting care about signs?

Had concealed carry been allowed in the Cinemark Theater in Aurora, perhaps the number of dead and wounded would have been much lower.
