NY State Senator Working On Legislation For Metal Detectors At Theaters, Stadiums And Malls


Coming to a theater near you: metal detectors — maybe.

State Sen. Tony Avella (D-Queens) has announced he’s developing legislation that would require theater, indoor mall and stadium owners to provide enhanced security, WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported.

“Either a metal detector and security or security officers with the wand that they can wave,” he said.
