    Happened overnight during a screening of the new Batman film at a cinema complex in the Denver suburb of Aurora. 14 people now confirmed dead (may well be 12, conflicting news reports) with as many as 50 more injured. Additional reports of a gas attack.

    One man (apparently the gunman) has been arrested and has since claimed that further explosive devices are being kept at his home.

    The counter argument of course, is that if members of the public were allowed to carry concealed weapons somebody would have plugged him as soon as he started shooting. As it was he was shooting fish in a barrel.

    local reporter saying 10 dead up to 50 injured.

    America is too far down the road to pass any meaningful gun restrictions. The gun lobby has far too much influence and it aint going to change any time soon.

    Edit Suspect in custody.

    Guy was wearing a gas mask? Clearly mentality disturbed, doesn't the main villain in the film wear a gas mask too? Some psycho trying to pose at the character or something possibly..

    I'm surprised he's been arrested and not just shot on sight, guess he gave himself up or something. Crazy....

    Think it was probably more due to the fact that he reportedly released some sort of gas.

    He's trolling (somewhat distastefully considering the thread he's posted on).

    Don't feed him.

    oh right..sorry I didn't read the entire opening post or article as I have BBC news 24 on my TV right now and they're talking about the numbers dead and such and haven't mentioned a gas attack in the last 10 mins I've had it on.

    oh right, not read the comics or read details of the film, just looked like a fancy gas-mask type thing to me. What does the character wear it for?
