Metal detectors installed at Reading's Santander Arena and Performing Arts Center
Because it's so safe to go near Reading unarmed:

"The way that the world is now and the way the industry is, we want to make sure when guests come out to have an enjoyable time that they feel safe and know they're going to have a good time," said David Farrar, general manager of the Santander Arena.

Seventeen metal detectors will be stationed around the arena at all four entrances. Farrar said the added security is becoming an industry standard across the country. Some promoters, like Live Nation and WWE, require metal detectors. Now, guests will walk through the machines in Reading at each event. "It's great to see them taking the proactive approach to everything," said Raelene Grunn, who was buying tickets at the arena Tuesday. Two metal detectors will also be installed at the Santander Performing Arts Center on North Sixth Street. Reading Mayor Wally Scott is also looking to bring the machines to City Hall. On Monday night, the mayor told city council he wants to install a metal detector at the entrance on Washington Street and another one at the door on North Eighth Street.

This is one of the reasons why I stopped going to such places. If others want to congregate in mass unprotected in such places, more power to them. I prefer to stay protected.
