    I didn't "ignore what you said". I addressed what you said exactly. And what you said was that the killer, Holmes, was a registered Democrat, and that you felt victimized by the big, bad librul media for not mentioning that 'fact'. I 'addressed' your claim by debunking it: Homes was not a Democrat.

    You want, on the one hand, to pretend as if the mainstream media is persecuting you; the right-wing in this country has developed a worrisome love affair with self-victimization. On the other, you want to engage in the same sort of behavior you see in the 'mainstream media'. It won't do.

    Let's go through this again, shall we?

    But this is speculation. And it is, furthermore, incorrect.

    From Breitbart.com:

    James Holmes, the suspect arrested in connection with the mass shootings at a screening of the new Batman movie early this morning in Aurora, CO, could be a registered Democrat, according to documents obtained by Breitbart News. Earlier, ABC News' Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos speculated on Good Morning America that Holmes was a Tea Party member, based solely on a name appearing on a Tea Party website.


    Update (12:49 EDT): Newly-released information on the suspect's birthdate (which, as indicated in our initial report, was a slight mismatch), combined with new details Breitbart News has obtained about the suspect's likely addresses, together suggest that the suspect may, in fact, not have been registered to vote.
    In other words, you were engaging in hypocrisy. And I don't like hypocrisy.

    Never mind, I really just don't want to think about that kind of scenario.
    I know... So many survivors were unable to even comprehend what was going on until they got out of the theater.

    I have been to hundreds of HS foorball games.. and I saw the bleachers collapse across the field.. It was like slow motion and my brain couldn't register it for several seconds..

    Imagine a darkened theater.

    I have said it before...either everyone should have to own a gun or no one (outside of cops/military) should own a gun.

    NO WAY this guy does this if he knows that there is good chance many in the crowd would have been armed also.

    I would suggest 'whackos' don't care who they face, especially the ones who come to the dance decked out in 'Star Wars' body armor.

    Robbers and thieves tend to be more selective, though those going after hard targets tend to suit up,

    Generalities like no gunmen attacking an NRA convection is interesting, last one I attended was in Tulsa and no carry was permitted. Might want to try, "you don't read about too many robbers trying to shake down a police station at shift change."

    I know we can speculate on all of this, I would like to point out Colorado CCW laws are pretty agreeable, it is a 'shall issue' state, yet no one apparently was armed or perhaps more to the point, willing to step up and shoot back.

    Hmmm, unless the NRA convention is liberally laced with seasoned combat vets the bad guys might not be in as much hot water as some would think...

    Are you kidding me? This guy was in full battle gear, heavily armed with TWO long guns, an AR-15 and a shotgun. True it is easier to LEGALLY carry concealed in CO than in NYC, but it is still far too rare for the odds to be good of finding even ONE concealed handgun in a late night movie theater, not only that, but this killer was "well suited" for an armed defense as well. He picked a location with poor lighting, immovable furniture, lots of young people, wore dark clothing/body armor and used smoke/gas bombs to help prevent others from acquiring a good shot at him. In short, he was well prepared for his mass murder mission and planned it well.

    which means he was prepared for an armed-audience.

    That's logical thinking.... Although I have no qualms on gun ownership. I am a 2nd ammendment fan. More gun carriers doesn't repel a person from doing what they do, but it does give them a lot less time to kill so many people.

    Yep. I believe that was his intent, yet his MAIN concern was clearly getting a high victim count. His intent was not to get away but simply to kill as many as possible before being stopped.

    All this comparison between the fact that it is easier to carry a concealed weapon here vs whereever is retarded. Just because it is easier to get a ccw here does not mean everyone here has one. And even those who do are not required to carry it everywhere with them. I think very few ccw holders feel the need to carry it with them to go see batman.
