    So I woke uo this morning after a nigtmare and turned on the TV.

    See the news about this mass shooting in Aurora CO.

    Some 14 people dead, at least 50 injured.

    Act of terrorism or just a damned kook?

    Took place during Batman movie, around 12:30 in the morning.

    Watch this carefully as it unfolds, I suspect like Columbine it will have an impact on all of us in all parts of the country.

    I woke up to this news also and couldn't believe it. Plays right into Obummer's plans don't it. It's hard to believe that someone didn't have any idea that this was going to happen and could have stopped it. It's really sad that things like this go on. I still believe that the games that kids played fuel things like this. I have a neighbor whose son is now about 24 yrs old that played games, mostly the ones killing people who developed a drug problem and became so insenitive to hurting people. He decided he wanted to join the army at age 15 so he could really shoot people. Remember the families of the 14 dead and 50 injured in prayer. Jackie B.

    Another snothead who was not taught values by his parents.

    Learning about life from movies and video games led to the Columbine shootings, too.

    I wonder if Colorado has something in the water?

    What is it, 15 minutes of fame? What makes someone just walk in and shoot people for no reason? Perhaps, I'm a dunce but, it's beyond me to understand. There dose not seem to be any fear of the repercussions of the act. Last week a kid shot a woman in the face, and killed her because she asked the driver to slow down on a residential street. Maybe if we started hanging these punks in the town square, where they committed the act as soon as possible, it may kindle some fear of their end result. I had a cousin, Judge Issac Parker that hung over 80 men. Some six at a time. Make these punks FEAR the Hangman, and they may think twice.

    Report is the shooter's car had Tennessee plates on it, but has apt in Aurora. White male, 24, name is James Holmes, had vest, tear gas and some reports of helmet, gas mask or goggles.

    As always with early reports and eye witness statements, half of it is bogus.

    More gun bans/control and push for UN treaty??

    This is getting just too damn familiar.

    Movie showing canceled in France.

    Could Hollyweird be a victim of their own "art"??????

    Well, I was scared sh*tless this morning when I turned the news on.

    My oldest Granddaughter lives in Aurora, but I got on line and found out she is okay.

    They should have shot him instead of arresting him. He does not deserve to live.

    He has devastated a lot families by his cowardly actions.

    My prayers are out to those involved.

    Hauxfan!

    My heart and prayes go out to all affected by this sensless act of violence. This is the act of a sick mind that can't be helped, a coward that needs to pay the price that he has extracted form those poor people in AuroraCo.

    really?


    You right wingers are all alike.

    I am surprised nobody is blaming Bush fot this.

    My point is, everyone is going to be calling for more laws regulating guns and people and nobody will look at the cultural breakdown being a big part of the problem.

    Coming too to a theater near you, metal detectors and a free frisk.

    Does Colorado have CCL?

    It's a shame there wasn't someone armed and in attendance at that movie. Someone to STOP this wacko just after he fired his first few shots. Remember the female staff member a few years back who saved the day at a church in Colorado? Where is Jeanne Assam when we need her?

    We need CCL holders to help keep our rotting society in check. Police can't be everywhere all the time.

    A bucket of gasoline will do more damage in a crowded movie theater then a so called assault rifle will. Just think, if only 1 person in that movie theater had a CCW and was packing they could have prevented some of the casualties, and would have become a national hero.

    The part that really sucks now is he has to be put on trial to see if he is guilty!!Someone needs to total this up and when he finally gets sentenced point out what the tax payers cost would be for a 10 foot piece of rope and a tree vs the Trial,Lawyers,Cost to house this dirt bag and free medical for the rest of his life.Etc!!Or just bring him to me,I could use another zombie target!PJ

    I believe it may be a conspiracy between our President and Holywood! Let's see if Rush (Viagra & Oxcycoitan Head) Limbugh runs with this one.

    Blade, are you trying to be as sic as the shooter??

    Obo's action at his campaign rally speaks volumes, got heckled and walked out like he was pouting. Shooting stole his daily thunder.

    Wonder what the "body language" watches will say about it??
