    You don't even have to enter the theater if you're using gasoline.

    those rifles are very good for killing someone holding a stinger missile, the pilot of an attack helicopter or tank or more importantly, the politicians who order such weapons be used against patriotic americans

    why don't you tell us what laws would solve the problems you have noted without duly burdening us who are both responsible and sane?
    I'll give you a funny personal story. There was this rather small guy at a club that used to be big here. My best friends girl at the time wanted to go, we agreed but hated the place. Anyway, the place had a bunch of roided out gorillas as security and it was my round, the little jerk looks at me with credit card in hand and goes "now what the **** do you WANT?" I got smart right back and told him if he gave me any more lip I was jumping the bar and kicking his ass. He goes into this, "I've got security" spiel and I told him, "That's fine, you aren't much of a challenge and I'll be done with what I have to do before they get here". He shut up real quick, the reason I'm sharing is it isn't that much different than an assailant, they can finish the assault well before the police can get to you.

    the minute the brady turds got the 10 round magazine restrictions in place, UpChuck Schumer and the other Brady turds in the senate immediately proposed a 6 round magazine limit. The 1994 backlash against the turds put an end to that nonsense. magazine limits are idiotic

    Is there not some place in the middle where people can advocate for responsible gun ownership but yet have reasonable laws which protect society from turning into Deadwood?
    Who gets to define what's, "reasonable"?

    Instead of making more restrictive gun laws, we should make more laws that restrict criminals from staying on the street.

    its moronic but that is consistent with most of your posts on this subject. why should I be limited when criminals and cops are not. Millions of americans have 30 round magazines for AR 15 rifles, AK style rifles or 25 round magazines for the 5 million or so Ruger 10-22 rifles. what are you going to do-arrest everyone who possesses one of these magazines.

    Yep, the thing is that psychopaths have plenty of household items at their disposal to make lethal weapons out of. You cannot ban enough things to make people absolutely safe.

    I don't get why he bought 6k rounds. Unless he spent time at the range, he was planning on going to other theatres? Someone can only carry, like, what 1000 rounds reasonably? So what's the other 5k for, and were they in the car.

    Umm let's see you got a 20 year old student, looking for work who buys 3 guns amor and 2 gas canisters?

    Sounds like a reed flag should have went up somewhere.

    So instead of gun control being a little tighter , from now on when you go to the movies you stand in line to go through the metal detector or get frisked by security guards thanks the NRA, and some nut with a gun but legally bought and paid for, just like the nut at Virginia tech and those guns.

    Gun violence in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There were more total traffic fatalities than gun deaths, and if we exclude suicides (since most of them would have used another method if guns weren't available to them) there were more than twice as many traffic fatalities as non-suicide gun deaths... and some of those gun deaths were self-defense or police action.
    "...According to the report, the VPC found that the number of gun deaths surpassed the number of motor vehicle deaths in ten U.S. states in 2009, the most recent year for which state-level data is available.

    “Motor vehicle deaths are on the decline as the result of a successful decades-long public health-based injury prevention strategy that includes safety-related changes to vehicles and highway design,” reads an entry from the VPC website. “Meanwhile, firearms are the only consumer product not regulated by the federal government for health and safety.”

    In the VPC’s report, ten states are identified as having a higher rate of gun deaths than motor vehicle deaths. The table below illustrates the statistics involving these states:

    State Gun Deaths in 2009 Traffic Deaths in 2009
    Alaska 104 84
    Arizona 856 809
    Colorado 583 565
    Indiana 735 715
    Michigan 1,095 977
    Nevada 406 255
    Oregon 417 394
    Utah 260 256
    Virginia 836 827
    Washington 623 580

    Some of those ten states (if not all) have the most lax gun control laws in the country.
