    Until they introduce gun laws in the US like the rest of the world, I've got to say my sympathy is limited.
    Yeah, we all know how anti-gun laws stopped Brevik's massacre in Norway. :rolleyes:

    And Bird's rampage over here.


    But yeah, once again I think everyone can agree that political debate can wait.

    Well thats the ironic thing about the quote. It was obviously intended to be a comment on the shooting but It has a very unfortunate alternative interpretation because of the context.

    People can be crazy sometimes. It just makes you wonder where he left his conscience before he committed this act.

    Personally I don't believe this was a copy-cat. He appeared to be wearing a gas mask because he was using tear gas and more than likely picked that screening of the film knowing there would be a large amount of people there for him to target. That, and he would get himself a large amount of publicity for it. What a sick and twisted person...

    Likewise, this is really sad news. They just had someone on BBC describing it. Horrible.

    Watching the videos.... America is just surreal.

    It reminds me a bit about Scream in that murders are linked to movies. Such a strange sight to see people walking out of a cinema covered in blood...

    I think you've got it spot on. It's clearly a mentally disturbed person who's probably become obsessed with the dark knight films and has convinced himself he is bane. The bulletproof vest, dressed all in black and a gas mask tells you everything in my opinion.

    It really is terrible that people had probably been waiting to see this film for ages and were looking forward to a good night out and in the least place they expected they had their lives taken from them.
    :erm: Seriously, that's the conclusion you draw from that?

    More likely that he knew that he'd be releasing a gas cansister and didn't want to incapacitate himself, didn't want to be shot dead by the police and didn't want to be seen when he walked in the cinema to do the shooting. I don't think for a second that he's someone obsessed with Batman. 100% more likely that, as Briesandwich said, he knew that the theatre would be packed and that at the time of night they would be a corralled and captive group who couldn't escape.

    When is America going to realise that guns shouldn't be legal? ****ing idiots.
    You act as if there aren't ways to get guns in the UK. I agree, however, it should made extremely difficult to acquire a gun. It's contentious, with the level of mental depravity abound in today's America the second amendment is now more necessary than ever, for protection purposes. However, clearly a cultural, as well as legislative change needs to occur if we're ever going to see a decrease in violent crime, particularly gun crime.

    I'm sorry, I was wrong. I was thinking of another school shooting. My apologies.
