If the people in the theatre had guns then this would not have happened.

the worse part is Colorado is a open carry state and its easy to get a CCL in colorado, I dont see how 4 of 100 people in that theatre screening wouldn't be carrying. of course you can blame the Left for stigmatizing carrying weapons in public.

They knew this movie would be packed on premiere night, and knew people would be allowed to wear costumes.

Wow, you really are psychic; how'd you know that ?

They have gone to the shooter's residence to look for and disarm explosive materials that the shooter apparently claims exists

Now i get what you're doing.
You're saying what you exactly don't think.
You think the fact that guns are allowed in America is the cause of shootings like this.
You clever dog.

I was in the theater where this happened.

I'm lucky to have escaped with only a small braze on my left arm.

The movie was so good that people actually began to kill people because they believed Batman would come to save the day.

People began to kill people because they believed one of the kids would become the Batman after his parents were shot down in front of him.

You're pathetic for exploiting this tragedy to promote your ideology.

Also, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that in high-panic situations such as this, even those who are in possession of a gun and can potentially incapacitate and possibly kill the assailant usually don't because they can't focus and accurately shoot the shooter. When the flight-or-fight response is activated, a person with a gun probably won't be able to fight by shooting his/her gun at the assailant.

There aren't many attempted mass murders that are stopped by armed civilians for a reason, you know.

Anyway, my condolences go out to the families of those victims.

I find it ironic that it was 13 miles from Littleton, Colorado.

Glad you made it out safe NATA. This is a real shame. There will be all kinds of talks over what to do in the future, but I think the most realistic thing to do is have theaters enforce a no costume/mask policy, and make sure all exits are secured so people can't come into the theater through side exits, etc. They should only be able to be used as an exit. This shouldn't cost the theaters much in the way of movie, and many may already do this. It is probably uneconomical to install things like metal detectors, hire extra security, etc. It would just put movie theaters out of business, or make the tickets cost so much no one would go.
