    Were there, in fact, armed people in the theater? If so, why didn't they take the nutter out?
    either there was no one with a gun, or the folks with guns were too scared to act.

They didn't throw a smoke or tear gas bomb into their target area and they didn't just start shooting people at random.

    You're comparing apples to oranges. I highly doubt that weapons would have done much good in this situation.
    Do you have any insight regarding the statement you just made? Did you actually think before responding?

    I just heard on the radio, witnesses said during the credits someones cell phone rang and the person got up and opened the exit door to let the shooter in. Dunno how credible though.

    The final tally is 12 dead, 59 injured: one in the ajoining theater; a round went through the wall.

    Gunmam captured: 24 year old James Holmes: dressed in combat gear, head to toe. 2 Gloch .40s a Remington 12 GA, and an AR-15. So far the AR and one Glock is said to have been used.

    The shooter entered through the emergency exit in the front right of the theater: it has been reported that there was a suspicious person hangin around that door before the movie started, otherwise the cops have no idea how he got in.

    The shooter's apartment was boobie trapped with all sorts of devices so robots are going in.

    Personal note: this took a lot of prep time, so I'm really hoping that an "insanity plea" is not accepted.

    No.. He went out the exit door, did something to prevent it from locking, suited up and came back in that door.

    What is this comment? I wrote facts. How is that not clear?

    I was responding to your top post. I cannot affirm that someone armed as the old man would have taken the same action, or been successful, as the old man was.

    What I demonstrated was that your original post was a bit uninformed.

    After watching that old man, my belief is that had he, or another of his angst, been in the threater, and had a shot, they'd have taken it.

    I am not blaming gun control one way or the other. Not advocating one way or the other. Just providing an actual example instead of unfounded conjecture.
