    what really needs to be the concern now is the people who are having thoughts of duplicating it. Hopefully this event doesnt motivate any other wackjobs looking to make the news.

    I wonder how much of this digital age of violent video games, fantasy/animated CGI movies is having as an effect on impressionable young minds? At 24 yrs old I still had a comic book collection though I wasn't living in a world of make believe.

    Well obviously the other person deployed quite well.

    I havent the chance to get much details. I just saw it on the TVs passing through Austin Airport. It looked like it was outside on some set?

    The shooter if Gabby Giffords was not a "teabagger". That was debunked almost immediately. I'd remind you to stay on topic.

    Breaking news as I write this. Reported that 10 dead and 2 gunmen, and 1 arrested.

    Speculation is now what the motivation is.
    I feel extremely sad about this.

    I think that sadness of this situation is intensified by the expectations for and atmosphere of the event where this happened. Just the thought of people going to such an exciting event that they've probably been waiting for for a long time and having the happiest expectations only to be met with such violence and disregard for human life is saddening to the point of being sickening.

    I'll pray for the families and the victims. My heart goes out to them and to the family of the shooter.

    I would ask that people not blame liberals for stupid **** like this. Most of us try and make much more reasonable arguments.

    And this whole situation is just terrible. I feel for the young people especially who where there and have to deal with the aftermath.
