CraicBaby: Tyranicle: I agree 100% with you and I believe that if Aurora was a right to carry town we wouldn't be having a discussion about twelve innocent lives lost. Granted, not every spree shooter booby traps his apartment either. Nonetheless, if more citizens were given the right to carry, the less incidents like this will happen.Colorado is a CCW state and is very pro-gun. The shooter was wearing full body armor, so shooting back at him wouldn't have done shiat.
murrdy: Devolving_Spud: I'm guessing here:I think he wanted to destroy any evidence in his apartment, but I wonder if his larger plan was to create one hell of a diversion just before the pre-planned time he was going to open fire at the theater. Sounds like he wanted every cop, firefighter and EMT to be at one location, unable to respond quickly to what he was planning at the theater.He wanted to cause a giant explosion and while calmly sitting in jail ala The Dark KnightHe even said he wanted to be called The Joker
hbk72777: Tyranicle: The US is more armed than the Chinese, Indian (call center people) and Russian armies combinedAnd you want to live under the rules of those countries? Ask them about their quality of life and if most of them wouldn't trade places with you./you don't have to worry about a stranger shooting you, the government will run over you with a tank or shoot your ass behind a building
Glitchwerks: This About That: Pro Tip: Deciding not to barge into someone else's apartment uninvited is always a good idea.FTFY.Anyway, I read earlier that the music in question that was blaring was techno. So obviously the media is going to call for a ban on electronic music.
consider this: How the hell does a guy burst into a packed theater and only kill 12 people?
Hobodeluxe: funny how if I wanted to buy tens of thousands rounds of ammo. numerous assault weapons,gas grenades,body armor etc it wouldn't throw up a red flag to the govt.but if I want to buy over 30 tablets of asthma medicine at a time it's impossible. and I have to show i.d., it comes from behind the pharmacists counter and I have to sign for it.thanks NRA and GOP for keeping us safe.
This About That: Pro Tip: Deciding not to barge into someone else's apartment uninvited is always a good idea.
Thoguh: Or her decision to open the door while he was still in there, and set off the explosion could have saved 12 lives.Just sayin'
