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.

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.

"The Decorator" is Peter North, so called because of his copious issue, usually dispensed at such a force and distance that it "decorates" the whole room. While not as large as John "Johnny Wadd" Holmes, he is still quite well equipped.

Cause that would be so useful in a situation like this.


Actualy it would. I'm not gonna go after the guy, that would probably just get me shot. So unless he's directly in my path and about to fire at me, I wouldn't be shooting at him. No, the gun would be useful for clearing slower people out of my way. Got a fattie waldling down the aisle? Pop him once in the leg and hop over him. Plus his mass provides cover if you keep low. You don't have to be the fastest target, you just don't want to be the easiest.

He might harbor a deep hatred for the underworld (and guns) and want to take action. He'd want to transform into a symbol that'll strike fear into the heart of criminals.

Maybe he'd use his wealth to become a silent guardian, a watchful protector, a Dark Knight.

The discussion here was armed robbery where your WIFE WAS BEING RAPED and you needed a gun to prevent that from happening. This is the criteria you yourself created.

You can play semantics all you want


Well yes, I need a gun to stop that. I have a torn up shoulder from a deployment, so I can't Batman toss his ass out the bedroom window. So the gun would be the best tool to use.
Though since his pants would be down, I suppose I could always give him surprise butt sechs. But the wife might not appreciate me giving him additional thrusting power, and he might like being a Lucky Pierre.
Though Id probably go down in history for the most unusual attempt to stop a rape.

I've seen two reports now that point out that the shooting started at the same time there was a shooting scene in the movie.

Which means that he probably planned it that way (or was INCREDIBLY fortunate) and thus had seen the movie before its release.

Which, of course, means he downloaded it off the interwebs.

Which means he is an "evil pirate"!

As opposed to gun grabbers who frequently say "ZOMG do you think people should have the right to own nukes" and other silly things.


Reasonable restrictions and requirements to ownership are not averse to the Second Amendment. Why can't we have reasonable discussions about the slow creep of guns in this country to be far more powerful, far more easily abused, and far easier to obtain without resorting to "TEH GUNS AR ME GODZ GIVEN RIGHTS!!!11111".

Fact: We have seen an ever increasing lethality to newer and more powerful guns without meaningful discussion on the restrictions to their ownership. The time is NOW to have those discussions without either side emotion-baiting the masses.

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.

I have to say the reactions to people calling for gun control makes a good deal of you sound like a bunch of farking fruit cakes. Anyone would think people would be taking your testicles!
It's called control, not a ban. You can have your hunting rifle or shotgun, that's a tool! You don't* need a Desert Eagle or an AR-15. Your reactions are just like taking away a child's favorite toy! You like your guns, you don't need them. They are just toys!

"But how would I defend myself and my family?" Easy, all you dip shiats that are spouting criminals will be able to get guns one way or the other... Well not here. What little gun crime there is, the offending weapon is usually an antique or a converted starter pistol or a replica with a drilled out barrel. Gun crime here is mostly wannabe gangstars that shoot each other 'cause they were "dissed" or ripped each other off... or whatever the disagreement might be. See they SHOOT EACH OTHER, not random people in their homes in the suburbs. When you have gun control something is in short supply - BULLETS - that's right, without a gun shop on every corner endless supplies of cheap ammo is not happening. Do you need a lesson in supply and demand? Well in a nutshell it means bullets will be in short supply and expensive. How much? I have no idea, but I am willing to bet expensive and scarce enough that they are used sparingly!

Remember this ??
2.bp.blogspot.com

Yeah you get the occasional hit with a more "advanced" weapon, but they tend to be proper criminals or professional killers. Again, they have their target and no one "innocent" should get hurt . Lets make a point here, no matter how sad it is when some kid gets shot, chances are he did something to deserve it! Like I said bullets aint cheap here!!

Now is this all just hear say? Let's see what the facts say. We will use 2009 ( first year that came up on Google, despite my 2011 addition to the search - feel free to check 2011, if you can be bothered but I imagine it will show pretty much the same results)

US population = approx 311,000,000 - Murders by fire arms in 2009 = 9146 - Deaths/Population = 1 per 34,003 people

UK population = approx 60,000,000 - Murders by fire arms in 2009 = 39 - Deaths/Population = 1 per 1,538,461 people

Pretty shocking figures really. And how many more non-homicide deaths by guns were there? I can't be arsed to look that up, but I'm guessing a fair few.

There you have it, like it or not, gun control works. A shiat load more than I bet you guys thought too, cause I am certainly surprised!

HOWEVER

*You do need your guns, the US is sodden with with guns. You will always have to live this way. But I guess you are happy as you get to keep your toys. But come on, just between us, you got to admit, you know the right to bear arms thing was written for a different time, when Indians prowled and wolves and bears roamed the land. So my advice is stop spouting that shiat as an excuse and just say it how it is "it's too late to go back now"

Public humiliation and pain is what he deserves. Start making examples out of these freaks.

I heard he was molested by a Catholic priest, and then converted to Islam. Obama's secret Imam himself then had him do this to gain support for Obama.

Bill O'Reilly, who's a real whiz with these things, tells me that you can infer from the body language of the shooter that he was an effete east-coast Ivy League educated sissy liberal who once heard a Common song on the radio and played video vidja games about killing dragons and occasionally watched The Daily Show.

Of course, I also heard from Daily Kos that it was Dick Cheney auditioning for a role as The Penguin in the next Batman movie.

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.


Ugh, Colorado is gun friendly to say the least. They still cling to their Wild Wild West heritage. Further, Aurora is the home of Buckley Air Force Base and is full of active and retired military.

This is hardly surprising. Most gun nuts would shiat their pants faster than Ted Nugent at a draft board if they were actually being shot at.

ITT: A combination of people:

...defending their right to make fun of the incident by saying "humor is how people deal with these things", rather than being candid that they have no emotional connection to the incident and simply don't give a crap.

...using the incident to explain how there needs to be fewer restrictions on gun control, since the first thing any intelligent person would do in a crowded, pitch-black theatre under attack by a gunman (who as I've read, reportedly used chemical agents designed to further reduce visibility) is pull out their gun and start firing back.

...using the incident to explain how there needs to be more restrictions on gun control (as though there aren't countless other methods for inflicting high casualties on a small concentration) and ignore the complexities of "why people kill", spanning economic, psychological, educational, and political purposes far beyond "LOL IF HE DIDN'T HAVE A GUN HE COULDN'T HAVE SHOT NO ONE", complexities which haven't come close to being understood as they apply to this particular incident.

...an inane urge to immediately and indirectly pin the violence on their most hated political talking heads, a shooting which centered on a movie theater playing a screening of a movie series in which "Some men just want to watch the world burn."

I have a gun nut friend that openly talks about scenarios like this where if her were there he would have saved the day with his trusty (insert firearm here) because he's always prepared. One time, in the middle of these verbal daydreams another friend smacked him in the face and said: You weren't prepared for that, and you're not armed, so shut the fark up!

I've taken to answering his question of: "Ya know what I would do in that situation?" with: "Shiat yourself and cry like a biatch?" because he's never armed, though he claims he is, and he's the world's biggest chickenhawk and keyboard commando. He wouldn't do a farking thing in these situations. Closest he would get would be like the gun nut in the first Highlander: Dead while thinking he could be effective.

He might be crazy, he might not be, either way, I don't think the idea of basing our legislative policy off of the actions of a few select morons, or pretending that somehow incidents like this are representative of anything other than a few random, non-connected acts is a good idea. OTOH, if you have something to suggest that there's a pattern to mass shootings, feel free to tell us all about it.

This is why I hate going to the theater to watch movies. Not the baby in general, but the people that bring the baby, then loud noises spook it and it cries. It's not the baby's fault the 10,000 watt THX surround sound system scared it, it's the farking parents! And if it's not them, then it's the teens all grouped together and texting back and forth or the low rent mother farkers that like to talk at the screen, or the dumb GF that can't follow the plot and is constantly asking what's going on, or her tool boyfriend that actually answers! Or the fat guy who's body temperature is just below boiling in his fat rolls and he sits next to you and the convection heat poring off this human radiator makes you sweat!

I quit dating a chick that texted during movies, and even quit seeing movies with a friend because he'd answer his phone in the movie. We got into an argument because he answered and I kept telling him to hang up and he couldn't hear the person on the other end of the phone so he told me to shut up. Really?

ronaprhys: HotWingConspiracy: ronaprhys: HotWingConspiracy: I hear ya buddy. 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?


I never even used the word ban. You wanted me to, because that's all you can argue against.

The second part, however, appears to be purely conjecture on your part - and conjecture that's not supported by the facts. Note that in every area where firearm laws have been removed or loosened death and destruction have not followed. Oddly enough, the reverse does appear to happen.

Go fetch me some numbers. I doubt they say what you want them to.

Firearms that have been banned in major metropolitan areas have seemingly always led to an increase in violent crimes, shootings, etc.

Not really.

As for your last statement, strawman. Try harder.

Spew enough irrational random hate around unstable people, one of them will eventually act on it. Whose fault is that? You can blame it on the mental illness only so far.


You've done nothing but spout complete bullshiat this entire thread. How about you try citing links backing up any of the utter nonsense you've posted in this thread. I think it's time you consider seeking professional help before we end up having one of these threads about you.

Other minor crimes occuring now. Probably not the wisest time to commit a crime as the cops will NOT be in a good mood if they catch you, and theres now a ton of them all around.

thejoyofpi: CliChe Guevara: coco ebert: White guys don't get called terrorists off the bat, if at all. Usually they're "mentally ill".

No;

"Mentally ill" specifically means only a far-right white guy with provable right-wing ties.
"Liberal" is what they call all other white terror suspects if they have no known ideological links, or a known but unprovable (or at least hideable) links to right-wing groups.

Remember, there are no violent Right-wing domestic terrorists - only violent Left-wing domestic terrorists, and "mentally ill" people.

I have never heard of a left-wing domestic terrorist. Don't be deluded. White guys with no known ties to Islamic groups are usually called "right wing militia extremists".


Far leftwing domestic-terrorists get elected to Congress. Everyone knows that.

There, all the bases are covered.

But if it's radical centrists, boy will I have egg on my face.

bob_ross: Joking aside, I was in a theater shooting once. It was during Friday the 13th part VII: Jason Goes to Hell. The whole theater was hot-boxed (Alexandria on Geary in San Francisco) EVERYONE was talking, you could barely hear the farking movie.

The second credits started to roll, some guy stood up and yelled "Man, that shiat SUCKED" and fired at the screen. EVERYONE screamed and broke out the side door. Me and my buddy just hit the floor and looked at each other in sheer terror. Cops were there in minutes, don't think they ever caught the guy..

My buddy worked at that theater for years after. They never even bothered to repair the screen so I saw Friday (ice cube) for free like 12 times with an authentic bullet hole in the screen.

/was scary as shiat
//thought I was going to be Jason's final victim


I'd hate to see his reaction to part 8

I'm guessing then that the suspects are swarthy, possible Mooslim types. White guys don't get called terrorists off the bat, if at all. Usually they're "mentally ill".
