Ozark -- A man walked into the Ozark B&B theaters on Saturday afternoon with a gun on his hip--in plain view.
Theater staff immediately called authorities around 3p.m. when the incident happened. Ozark police officers and Christian County deputies escorted the man out of the theater.
After checking to make sure he did not have any outstanding warrants, officers told the man he could return without the gun, or he would have to leave the theater.
Christian County Sheriff Joey Kyle said the man didn't do anything illegal.
"Missouri is a carry state, in others words, you can carry weapons in Missouri exposed, you can carry weapons concealed, if you have a conceal and carry permit. He said he just exercising his right to carry a firearm," said Sheriff Kyle.
