Yes, A dreadful tragedy breaking this day-

I don't think any offence was meant by including
It on 'Offbeat'
as the news is the first story around the
World now:

RIP to those who died.

Sad day. Too-bad nobody was equipped/ready to thwart this senseless attack. A clear example of why CCW is important everywhere you go; you never know when some nut will strike. One or more armed citizens might have cut the loss by half or even many more. More guns in the right hands = less crime and fewer tragedies like this one.

GFY. You people always say that. Colorado is a HEAVILY armed state yet, in a crowded theatre, no heroic 2A nuts were around to protect the public. No fault of the state as they have Castle Doctrine ans Stand Your Ground laws along with CC permits.

Why is it the *heroes* are only around to *protect* us from black teenagers *armed* with Skittles and iced tea?

I wonder tho' if that's the answer-
Over here civilians are not allowed carry any guns-

( with the exception of a minority
Who use guns for game shooting and have
to be strictly licensed)

Occasionally someone breaks the rules and
Keeps one in a secret place.

I think if these out of the blue tragedies are to
Happen .. They will, no matter-

Only two weeks ago an Irish couple on holiday in
Torquay, England, we're by the worst kind
Of luck in the very wrong place at the wrong time,
Seconds later would have made a difference-

As they drove a rural road, a car came down a hill
And, at height speed ploughed into the Irish couple -
The difference was, it was driven by a Polish
Man who wanted to commit suicide-
A friend of his found a note about his
Intentions, the police were out looking for him
(but not following him at the time)

He was arrested but died in hospital-

The Irish couple are still critical, one on
Life support, having lost their 2yr old boy
And a child in the womb...

I don't think anything can stop Hesse
deranged people from carrying
out such atrocities, if they
Have a mind to do so....

In the aftermath of these events,
The 'fallout' and
the pain is impossible to comprehend:
need more guns

The United Nations and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are moving forward with their plan to confiscate your guns.

The United States joined 152 other countries in support of the Arms Trade Treaty Resolution, which establishes the dates for the 2012 UN conference intended to attack American sovereignty by stripping Americans of the right to keep and bear arms.Read article here: http://nationalgunrights.org/blog/...

From today's Alexandria Town Talk:

AURORA, Colo. A gunman wearing a gas mask set off an unknown gas and fired into a crowded movie theater in suburban Denver at a midnight opening of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises," killing 12 people and injuring at least 50 others, authorities said.

Can you just hear the clamor of those wanting to take our freedom away saying,, we must have MORE gun control since this shooting today happened?

Wonder why that cowardly gunman didn't go to a gun show where many more people are congregated? Could it be he could expect to find some expert shooters with guns to be there? Wonder if he thought any of the children in the theater would be armed? Of course he is a coward going into a theater where no arms would be expected.

This horrible act by a lone gunman should make every citizen want to be armed to curtail such acts. The video of a 71 year old man that thwarted an armed robbery in Florida is heartwarming because he not only protected private property but probably saved many lives.

Just remember - 99% of legal gun owners are terrible shots. It's the illegal possessors that can actually shoot.

Looks like you picked a bad time to go off half-cocked...

In a heavily armed state like Colorado, how many movie patrons that night WERE legally armed but, not quite dangerous to the shooter?

Words fail as to why anybody could plan such
a violent act as this. What right has anybody
to do such a thing?

Condolences to the families and friends of
the deceased, and prayers for those injured,
that they may make a full recovery.

As with VA Tech, and other massacres recent and not-so: this is beyond sad ... beyond tragic ... again:

and another spoke (with all-to-frequent nutzoids and low-lifes killing, maiming own kin (large and small), or just a random stranger or two to feed their addictions and/or demons) in this roulette wheel out of control.
