Not at that theater.

It's a gun-free zone.

Shall we start the countdown until a major news outlet "procures" evidence that the shooter played video games? I bet games will be scapegoated here.

EVE is like swimming on a beach in shark infested waters,  There is however a catch...  The EVE Beach you also have to wonder which fellow swimmer will try and eat you before the sharks.

Most likely they will hone in on the entertainment industry as a whole. They always do. You know because crazy people did not exist before film, music and video games... right??

Looking back through history I cannot think of a single event where people went mad and killed lots of others. It cannot be a coincidence that the first world war happened not long after movies were invented.

Ordinarily, I wouldn't consider the media to be a major influence.

But in this case:

He stated to the police he was the "Joker" and dyed his hair to resemble the character from the recent blockbuster.
Yeah, he wasn't motivated by negative Hollywood images. Roll

Well, they caught this one alive, so I'm sure we'll know a lot more about him before he's executed.

So why hasn't there been millions of people dye their hair green, grab a gun and head to their local crowd gathering event then? Millions watch The Dark Knight. Third highest grossing film of all time.

Millions of Americans own guns too.

Just watched the trailer for the Batman movie.

First impression?
I can see how it would incite fringe Occupy Wall Street types to violence.

The gunman wore a bullet-proof vest, tactical body armour and gloves, and was carrying an AR-15 military-style, semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and two pistols, police said. The gunman, whom witnesses said had said nothing during the attack, threw two tear gas grenades then opened fire with a rifle.

CALMLY shooting people and then being arrested easily while claiming to be the Joker.

Tell me that drugs are not involved.


Too bad drug companies are such a huge chunk of revenue for the media.


Anyway this incident follows the same old MO, from the person all the way up to the timing - the UN gun ban treaty where all they need are two votes in the senate.


But everybody I know is saying "bring it".

Bring back DEEEEP Space!

I live in the south, try to take someone's guns away here... had a tree fall over during a storm 2 days ago and everyone on the block was out with rifles looking for the burglar P
