Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
What would you say the chances are of an above-average marksman using a concealable weapon hitting the guy in the groin or face from significant distance in a dark theater filled with smoke ... or tear gas? ... while everyone around them is scrambling for cover and screaming bloody murder ... while taking fire from an AR-15?

"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."

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
My wife carries five shot .41 magnum in her purse. Two, or three hits with that and this clown would have been slobbering on the floor begging someone to arrest him, before he got his stupid ass shot again.
As for those pretending to know, and to claim that the shooter "saw all", he had restricted vision like everyone else. There were plenty of folks in the theater who remained uninjured as the shooter went past. Yet for tehm, who know virtually nothing of close combat, to claim that it would not hve mattered, or would only have created more casualties, is stupid beyond belief.
He also had an audio system in his apartment set to start playing super loud music and banging noises at about the same time he was shooting up the theater. They postulate that he expected someone in the apartment building to call the police, and that the police would break down the door...setting off his elaborate booby-traps killing them. (Someone did call the cops, btw.)
This guy was sane enough to come up with a very exacting plan...
Thank you, Quazi!
