Police in Ohio have arrested a man who allegedly tried to smuggle guns, ammunition and knives into a late-night showing of "Dark Knight Rises."

Authorities say ... the manager of the Cleveland-area movie theater became suspicious of the man, who allegedly tried to bring a satchel into a 10pm Saturday showing of the Batman movie.

The manager reportedly alerted an off-duty cop who was working security that night ... who searched the bag -- found a Glock 9mm handgun, ammunition clips, and three knives -- and immediately alerted police.

Cops say the man, identified as 37-year-old Scott Smith, does NOT have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

According to reports, the man was arrested without incident ... and even offered to put the guns back into his car. Obviously, that didn't happen.

Cops later performed a search of Smith's home. It's unclear if investigators discovered anything during the sweep.

The Gun laws, Our Second Amendment was written for Americans to protect themselves from foreign or domestic threats. But this law will soon be amended due to the insane behavior of a few Psychos. Each State that has a psycho on record behaving in this manner should be the first State to Amend their Gun Privilege because the World is watching Us and Our Country looks Insane as a result of a Few Idiots......
