DesktopHippie: I was going to make a comment about some Joker going nuts but... WTF! That is horrific. Who shoots people going to see a movie?!
USP .45: tacos4jesus: I'm sure this will be lost in the sea of comments, but I'm more than a little disappointed in the flippant comments made here. I'll give the first handful of folks a pass, as things were a bit murky at first, but this is a tragedy and nothing to laugh at.Imagine if you were a parent of a teenager who lives in the area who was going to see the movie and you didn't pay very close attention to which theater. I imagine a LOT of frantic voicemails were left for kids last night, and a lot of parents sat up for hours terrified and wondering when/if their children were coming hom.I don't think anyone making a joke about this literally believes there is anything funny about it, but people often deal with tension via humor; it's called "having a sense of humor." You're the same type of twat that got Don Imus fired over nothing, and forced countless comedians to apologize for words that came out of their mouths. I loathe people like you. Get the fark out.[hulk-9-11.jpg]

BurnShrike: JohnnyC: BurnShrike: Yeah... I'm sure the insanely loud sound from an action movie won't do a thing to disturb that baby either. You'd have to be dead to sleep through that.You do realize that a gunman opened fire on a crowded movie theater and the thing you are most focused on is that someone would have the audacity to bring a baby with them to the theater, right?Wait, a gunman opened fire in a movie theatre?! Holy shiat. How did I miss that part of the story?

AverageAmericanGuy: Any idea on who was targeted?
Dr. Mojo PhD: It's either radical Muslims, radical anti-Muslims, extremist Christians, extremist Jews, militant atheists, white supremacists, black supremacists, gangs, militia members, right-wing extremists, left-wing extremists, a lone nut, or several lone nuts who decided not to be lonely any more.There, all the bases are covered.But if it's radical centrists, boy will I have egg on my face.
James_Corn: WhyteRaven74: James_Corn: Sick thing is this guy is gonna get a trial.No, the sick thing is you think he shouldn't.yeah you're right. I'm sick because someone who was just caught killing 12 people and wounding scads of others deserves our taxpayer money (and the victims' taxpayer money) to pay for court costs, etc. just to make sure he is actually guilty. Plus, it's a great idea to give him more exposure in case he has some sort of important message to share with the victims and the American people. Good point. Good job. Good effort!Public humiliation and pain is what he deserves. Start making examples out of these freaks.

Brian Ross? The ABC NEWS hotline?

forever_blowing_bubbles: FinFangFark: Nana's Vibrator: I don't think of med school dropouts as political people...then again, I don't think of med school dropouts as mass murderers. This means..that..the shooter was political and involved in 2nd amendment arguments.And I have the almost 2000 posts on Fark to prove it!don't forget he listened to rap music, played Grand Theft Auto and sinfully masturbated to internet porn shortly before he gears up for the massacre.Aside from the massacre part, what do YOU do on a Thursday night?!? ... Deviant.
WhyteRaven74: And Rep. Louie Gohmert has gone full retard
MythDragon: So in your world there are only smart people who don't have guns, and half-crazed basement dwellers who dream of the day they can unload "Miss Sweetness"?
Phinn: It's a contrast between the way politicians (and politically-minded slaves who mistakenly think they are smarter than everyone else) respond to media-friendly deaths (like James Holmes) as opposed to the far more numerous, predictable and preventable deaths that happen every day on the government's roads.Shootings are politically useful. Traffic deaths are not.So, Statists respond to shooting sprees (over which the State actually has very little control) with attempts at massive deprivations of liberty, but do close to nothing to reduce the number of traffic deaths (over which the State has a very high degree of control).The State built the roads. Obama reminded us that we didn't make that happen. People like him did.

Good effort!Public humiliation and pain is what he deserves. Start making examples out of these freaks.You're absolutely right. He should be immediately convicted and sentenced to death based on what we've heard on TV and read on the internet.. Because the media is correct about those things at all times. In fact all justice should be carried out this way. What could possibly go wrong??

jso2897: James_Corn:For one thing, we don't do it that way. we just don't.Second, a quick death would be far preferable to what's in store for him, and he will very likely end up getting the death penalty, if he isn't hopelessly insane.Third, I want to know why he did this.

Leeds: What are the gun control laws like in that part of Colorado?Because so far the scenario is that that this guy strolled in, tossed tear gas, shot the ceiling, then ran up to the loft and started shooting anyone who left their seats. He was picking people off as they tried to run to the doors...So how is it possible that there wasn't a single armed citizen in that theater? I have heard no reports of anyone exchanging fire with the gunman and I found that to be shocking. I only hope that this was a fluke and not the result of the state or local government.

If the occasional massacre is the price to pay for my child-like notions of rights and freedom to be protected, I say it's a fair trade.What I like is your child-like notion that banning something would prevent such an occurrence. It shows that you've really sat down and thought this one through.I never said a ban would prevent a massacre. I can say for certain that continuing to loosen regulations won't either.BTW, are we back to guns don't kill people now? Because it seems like they do if you send them to Mexico.Your statement clearly showed that you believe a ban would prevent this. If not, why call for a ban or even insinuate that it's a good thing?
