Terrible shame, this whole thing. I can't imagine the terror.

I guess movie theater security is going to be a thing now. Hope it doesn't get out of control TSA style.

That's retarded.

Batman doesn't kill.

Batman did kill people in the comics and some of the movies. Why people say he never kills anyone is beyond me, just because he doesn't do it all the time doesn't mean he doesn't.

I guess I'm part of the "retarded general public". I'm young and naive enough to accept that; I was at the Avengers premiere, and I rarely go to see major comic book films like this, last time I probably saw a big superhero movie was either Spider Man 3 or Superman Returns. So when I saw all these other fans/nerds dressed up, I was a little taken aback. Sure, there were the less impressive costumes, but some with helmets and Cap shields and Thor capes (unfortunately no Black Widows -_-) and not once did it ever cross my mind that there might be some kind of bizarre, twisted high school graduate behind one of those masks. I didn't think some crazed fan might try and walk in and blow us away.

I can't help but feel a little paranoid at this. It'll probably fade in a few months or a year, once my life's moved forward a bit, and I'll probably look back on this and make demotivational posters about it. But for now... I really don't need to go and pay ten extra bucks to see Batman in IMAX3D. Nor do I have that many friends who are interested in seeing it.

I saw Batman Begins on a DVD I borrowed from a friend, I saw TDK on a DVD I bought for myself, and I might as well see TDKR on a torrent or on a Blu-Ray when it comes out. Complete the trilogy, you know?

Some people are assuming this was done because of of the villains in The Dark Knight Rises.

It sort of fits; Bane's (I haven't seen it yet) trying to accomplish citywide anarchy right? He's committing acts of terrorism, trying to provoke Batman and tear Gotham apart, spreading havoc and paranoia. Yeah, that sounds nerdy, but if the shooter really was interested of the movie and trying to create some form of irony, then horrible as it is to say, then he succeeded in being a murderous asshole. He even rigged his apartment with bombs and somehow managed to survive the ordeal.

Then again, it's probably not that complicated.

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.

And I thought my jokes were bad.

In all seriousness, my condolences to those grieving families.

Yes, because there are certainly no gun-toting psychos in Canada.

4 from 2012 to 1992? As opposed to the hundreds that happen every month in USA? : /

I also like the title of the first article you linked: "Toronto shooting spree shows need for a handgun ban".

I prefer the ban on the guns rather than Wade's strategy, aka "putting metal detectors and making sure exit doors don't open from outside".

Anyway, I'm wasting my time here. Sure, guns are cool and fun, and they protect your house and whatnot. BLah blah blah

P.S.: I'm aware there was more than 4 incidents in between 1992 and 2012, but still, it barely happens once a year. There's incidents involving a crazy person with a gun at least every week.

Really? There's been millions of theaters in the US for years, something like this happens once and you're scared?
I'm going to continue going to the movies and I don't want more security. Being scared would just be letting the shooter create fear in our society, which was exactly what he wanted to accomplish.

"I'm aware there has been more than 4 incidents in between 1992 and 2012 in Canada, but still, it barely happens once a year. There's incidents involving a crazy person with a gun at least every week in U.S.A..

There's nothing quick about a guy in body armor and a gas mask. He probably could barely see what he was even shooting at, just shooting randomly from what I hear. Shame someone didn't rush him and take him down.

I was planning on taking my little cousins this weekend. Trust me almost everyone is feeling like this right now especially families.

Clearly somebody wasn't happy with the end of the Batman trilogy. I wonder if there were actually explosives previously planted in the theater?

Can't imagine hoe terrifying that would be. Whenever I hear stories like this I always act out in my head how I would get out or how calm and collected I would be, but in this one, even in my head I know I would have just shit my pants and started crying.

Dark overcrowded theatre, people all around you, then a guy throws tear gas and your vision is even worse. Then you hear gunshots but you can't tell if its from the movie or from a real gun. People that try to run out are getting shot, you'd have no idea if there were more shooters in the crowd or not.

They said he had 3 different kinds of guns.

1. AR15 rifle

2. Glock 40

3. Remington 870

Having all of those weapons in a movie theater without anyone noticing they are real and not fake toy guns is COMPLETELY beyond me.

The one thing that no one has mentioned yet is how this movie has been literally ruined for the survivors by the experience & their families. They might not ever be able to watch this movie again w/o feeling sick or having disturbing flashbacks.......

I'd like to hear the actors & director weigh in on this. Nolan has to be fucking livid that his last movie in the series was ruined by some piece of shit.
