Don't forget that most people who were there had love ones they had to manage during the confusion. Not a lot of people go to the movies alone.

Honestly I'd feel more confortable with a gun in that situation, but that maniac had stacked the odds in his favor so he could rack up a body count.

If he had tried this in a bar it probably would've been more of a contest.

The film was so bad, that the guy starting shooting people. You would never see that in a Marvel movie.

yes because restricting a right in the US constitution is such a horrible thing. I highly doubt it the current gun laws are perfectly fine like I previously posted. I have no criminal record and am able to by assault weapons in Minnesota a Independent state known for democratic leanings. I could go to a movie theater and shoot it up with my recently acquired fully Autos but do I? no I don't.

anyone who has a clean record and passes the federal background (endorsed by the NRA thank you) takes the permit classes and has the money to buy them.

Right like that will ever happen, the NRA would return fire. Its easy to shoot people down when they are panicked and running, it's a whole different scenario trying to pick people off when they are sending lead your way. When is the last time someone gunned down 20 police officers? It doesn't happen for once you are being fired upon, you have to hit the deck and get behind cover, thus severely limiting your firing output and precision.

the gun laws here are more than reasonable.

The gun laws here are a fucking joke and you're a fucking gun nut. It's incredibly easy to get a gun in the USA compared to a place like the UK and a lot of other developed countries.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_violence#Homicide

"Levels of gun violence are low in Singapore, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and many other countries."

"The United States has the highest rate of gun related injuries (not deaths per capita) among developed countries, though they also have the highest rate of gun ownership and highest rate of officers"

Obviously I'm just scratching the skin here, but there's a lot more, I assure you.

...

I feel really bad for the victims.

Even though Tony was acting a bit Mark Wahlberg-y, at least his heart was in the right place. You, on the other hand, are acting like a complete jerk.

I'm not the pony trying to defend potential mass murderers like Eric Harris and Cho from getting weapons to blow anypony up, now am I? Tony is a fucking gun nut, what did you expect him to do, actually give remorse?

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

Yeah, you completely missed my point. Incidents like this shouldn't be cause for national paranoia. I could understand being scared if you were there personally, but otherwise no. Did you stop going to public school just because of Columbine?
The very last thing I want is airport security in movie theaters.

That's the whole thing behind this story, even if you yourself carried, you'd still either not have much of a chance alone against the well-equipped maniac, and or you'd have love ones that needed escort away.

I kind of want a gun now, but even then you have to pick your battles. Even if you and your buddies all carried that night, is being a hero worth loosing one of your friends?

hey I admit its a tragedy, but blaming gun laws isn't going to fix it. this guy had all the credentials to get what he needed to get those guns

it is as long as you have no criminal record or just go to a gun show . the UK is a nanny state just give me three days and $600 USD in the UK and I could get one easily even though its a saturday night special.

trolling, but I admit its a tragedy, but blaming gun laws or the NRA isn't going to fix it. this guy had all the credentials to get what he needed to get those guns. so blaming gun laws here isn't what is needed here.

I guess you don't remember the part where Fluttershy said he wished that James Holmes had shot up the NRA instead.

I don't recall how the NRA represents homosexuals and how my post represents my "hatred" for homosexuals. Please elaborate so everypony can understand your stupidity.

"Yeah, he did have a lot of interest in that, He was always playing the video games," said criminal profiler Pat Brown this morning at around 9 am EST during a CNN segment.

"And IâEUTMm not saying video games make you a killer. But if youâEUTMre a psychopath, video games help you get in the mode to do the killing. So it is a problem in our society with teenaged psychopaths, that they do get inspired by this and want to make it real. So it is a danger but it doesnâEUTMt make you a psycho."

Both, unless it's payed for by the theater, which would just drive up prices of admission.

Security guards are fucking incompetent. The competent ones are like the Gestapo, no hyperbole, at all, 100% literal. We'll end up paying more, for shit security, or paying more, for too fucking good of security that will kick you out over anything

There is a way to have killed everyone in that theater with nothing more than poison ivy, a lighter, and brown paper bag.

People fixate on weapons, but the point is not "can man mass murder." Yes. Always has, always will. No law will ever change that.

Our problem is with the value we put on the lives of others. We get the things we need from corporations, not people, so the idea of killing a theatre full of people doesn't have a lot of repercussions to a guy who hasn't benefited much from their existence up to this point.

I think that has to do with the UK, being, you know, an island, and us being pretty much the same size as Europe combined. But go ahead, keep comparing the two.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_violence#Homicide

"Levels of gun violence are low in Singapore, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and many other countries."

Yet, somehow, here we are, with places like the UK having a higher violent crime rate. When you restrict our access to guns, all it means is that I have to stab you now, or hit you with a bat.
