...Some people would find that discriminatory.

Taking security a bit too far, I would think.

Well, I doubt they really intend to get rid of foreign visitors.

Opening it to club members only automatically excludes foreigners, doesn't it?

So...if this *is* in response to the previous threats, what exactly do they think would *happen*? The previous threats were *blackmail*, which doesn't usually denote violence, but rather more like "you do what we say and we won't go public with x information about you". And keeping it to registered people and doing bag checks aren't going to prevent that.
