    http://gma.yahoo.com/mass-shooting-c...opstories.html

    Seriously what is this country coming to, can't even watch a movie in peace! I hope this guy gets the chair.
    P.S.-I bet BrObama will use this to his advantage and try to get rid of guns for good.

    Seems he was a white guy studying for a PHD in Neuroscience. So obviously now all white blokes with guns and a certain level of intelligence will be vilified with customary hysteria no doubt.

    You can tell from the tone in this video when it comes to talking about it.

    Wow, that eyeshape! This man was surely Irish descendant. Well, I just don't understand why the people don't shoot down this idiot as the americans have right to keep and bear arms.

    This 71-year-old man shot the two robbers.

    This is where the difference in state law comes into effect. Florida has one of the most expansive "Concealed Carry" laws in the nation, the video of the 71 year old-man shooting the assailants took place in Ocala Florida. Colorado, on the other hand, has some very stringent restrictions written into its concealed carry law. For example, according to Colorado law permit holders are not allowed to carry their weapons into:

    Facilities with security personnel electronically screening (such as handheld devices).

    This basically means that it is illegal to carry a weapon into any place that has video cameras or security personnel with hand-held radios, which basically means just about any place where large numbers of people are going to be gathering (such as movie theaters/malls/ect). Because of this aspect of the law, if someone had pulled out their own gun to fire back at the gunman he or she would have technically been in violation of the state law.

    Now, just because the law is on the books doesn't mean that a person would be charged if they did shoot back in a situation like this, however such an asinine restriction would definitely act as a deterrent for people to bother with obtaining their CCW permits in the first place. Furthermore, as a CCW permit-holder myself, I can attest that the vast majority people who have put in the time and money required to obtain CCW permits take the restrictions built into those permit very seriously. A CCW permit holder would be highly unlikely to willingly violate one of the most basic restrictions of the permit out of a very rational fear of being charged with a felony for violating the law if they happen to get caught.

    Since this guy was NOT taken down by the police or a concealed carry citizen- We will have to deal with seeing his face on the news quite a bit over the next year or so.
    He probably won't get the death penalty in CO.

    Generally, I am in favor of the death penalty, however in a case like this or the Jared Loughner one in Arizona I think a much more significant punishment is life in prison. Let this little rich-kid, joker-fanboy have his ten minutes of fame and then lock him up for the next 50-60 years in a maximum security prison alongside real hardcore violent criminals where he will be regularly victimized for the rest of his life while the world outside completely forgets about him and what he did. That is a far more powerful punishment for an attention-seeker like this kid than execution would be IMO.

    What is wrong with these Colorodo people?!!

    I don't think he will until he gets elected the second time, if he does, because there are just so many gun freaks out there, who love guns and are into self defense, even liberals. He would lose a lot of votes. He will probably just avoid the issue and then if he gets reelected suprise everyone with gun restrictions.
    Under Capitalism man exploits man; under socialism the reverse is true.

    Surely, of Irish decent!? I think not. Possibly perhaps, but not surely.

    Even if there had been someone in the cinema who was armed and ready to fire back it might not have made that much difference to the overall outcome for the following reasons;

    1) It would have been difficult to see where to shoot. Visibility in the already darked theatre would have been further reduced by the effects of the smoke grenade. Anyone trying to shoot the gunman might have had a hard time seeing his outline.

    2) It would have been difficult to get a clear shot.There were panicked people screaming and jostling each other as they tried to get down the aisles all at once.


    3) Holmes is reported as wearing full body armour, so he could quite probably have taken a bullet or two and kept firing. The same can't be said for whom ever was likely to be firing at him.

    he was wearing a ballistic helmet, a tactical ballistic vest, ballistic leggings, a throat protector and a groin protector and a gas mask, and black tactical gloves,"
    Source.
    For these reasons it seems unlikely to me that the simple presence of an armed individual returning fire would have saved lives, in fact someone else might have been killed in the cross fire.

    How do you mean? If you are referring to Holmes, I'd say that there are a few crazy people everywhere and this is true irrespective of any conditions within society.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    I beg your pardon, my composition was not the best. Well, probably you can see far more Irish one than me, however this eyeshape is quite special Robust Cromagnid trait and my first reaction was that he might be a Mediterranid-Brünn blend what would be quite typical Irish — or Welsh of course.

    Indeed, however in a so loud room some people could hear the voice of shots, the body armor is not a b0mbsuit, after few hit he should be injured. Well, the cross fire would endanger to the other people, however it would save more life with the elimination of the attacker.

    Side by side we can read above that those people cannot bear guns in the Cinema. I easily can imagine that this affair will lead to a more rigorous gun control. The people will be more defenceless to similar idiots.

    Wulfaz there are alot of people who look similar where I live so I believe you are correct. In fact he actually looks like the Welsh twenty-something barman in my local pub in that last picture.
