    No s**t. What mass murderer in their right mind - so to speak - would use gas-based weaponry without a gas mask?
    given the timing, I'll be pretty amazed if it isn't tied into those comments.

    I seriously doubt that.

    From the National Institute of Mental Health:

    People with schizophrenia are not usually violent. In fact, most violent crimes are not committed by people with schizophrenia. However, some symptoms are associated with violence, such as delusions of persecution. Substance abuse may also increase the chance a person will become violent. If a person with schizophrenia becomes violent, the violence is usually directed at family members and tends to take place at home.

To use this to attack a belief or ideology that is opposite is despicable.
    some crazy person being inspired by something isn't the same as saying the thing in question actually promotes such acts.

    I'm disturbed by anyone who's trying to turn this into a political issue.

    Not med school, but apparently he was pursuing a doctorate in neuroscience. Ironic.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Really?

    Thanks for the correction.

    Here is some more info on that supposed 9gag posting - http://www.blottr.com/breaking-news/...r-9gag-website

    One user posted "A few weeks ago, a man by the username of ‘JamesHolmes154' posted a thread on 9gag saying he was going to ‘shoot up’ a theater. He was clearly distressed and admitted he was suffering from PTSD. He said he was going to walk in and try to take as much lifes as possible. The whole 9gag community egged him on and give him tips on what to wear, etc. They give him tips on sharp-shooting and sent him messages on how to take as much lifes as possible."

    What mass murderer is in his right mind at all?

    Still, if this has anything at all to do with Bane or Bain I'd be very surprised. Crazy people sometimes do crazy things.
