    well no but it would be a stupid cop to run into a smokey dark cinema and start shooting with innocent people running for cover

    I know how most people in my area act with guns.... Very stupidly. I had a friend of mine show me his gun about a year ago. The dumbass pointed it at me. You want just anybody, especially people like that, to start shooting in a situation like that? Really? Hey, let's double the casualties, and maybe we'll get the shooter too.

    Speaking to the Dahmer situation, I may have an alternative punishment in mind; stick him in a room full of people high on "bath salts" and let dinner be served.

    You have no evidence to support that. However, theres plenty of evidence to suggest that these shooters seek out unarmed grooups to attack.

    You do know the difference between wild speculation and the use of logic.... don't you?

    There are tricks to shooting in the dark. One thing is you look for the other guy's muzzle flash... dead giveaway at night or in the dark. In the dark, he who shoots first is just giving away his position to shooters on the other side. I learned this from a Vietnam vet who wore a camoflage beret.... some folks will know what that means.

    Yes it is all speculation.... there are no certainties in life, no guarantees you'll live until tomorrow. You could run into a looney, or have a heart attack, or slip in the bathtub and break your neck.

    Well.... I put no-skid stickers on the floor of my bathtub, see my doctor annually and carry a gun I'm very adept in using. None of these things are guarantees you'll live out the day, but they do improve your odds a bit.
    and dont get me wrong I have no problem with you carrying a gun but I think its folly to try and claim at this point that if someone had been able to shoot back last night that the outcome would of been different. Innocent people died because of a sick sick man, anything else is just a distraction.

    You may have something there. Nobody has yet made an assault on Wayne La Pierre and his board of directors at NRA headquarters in Virginia yet have they ?

    The arguments have gotten so convoluted that the miitia aspect gets either tortured or forgotten altogether. State militias as the modern law follows would be the NG, CG, USAFR, etc. but the founders were patently clear on it, defining every male citizen of able body between 18 and 45 to be called up in times of defensive need.

    I heard the joke as death by bunga, but I like your description better. Death from having to listen to untalented drummer. LOL.
