    Re: Gun attack at Batman film premiere in Denver - Thread 2 [W:1/52]

    I would have to say that if violent video games were an issue, then we would have a lot more cases like this. Anyone care to reference the total number of sales for games like Call of Duty, or Wolfenstein?

    Simply put, over 75% of the entire population of the nations youth plays these games. If sales are any indicator. What, are they too broke to buy guns?

    No. The issue is deeper than this. If you want violence, you need only flip on the news. I think that today's youth have learned that life is cheap. The question is, where have they been getting this message?

    If he really wanted someone to know he would have been more efficient in his transmittal of the information. Sending documentation through the US mail today is putting something on a very slow train. Email, telephone, carrier pigeon would have proved to be more a quicker means to communicate his plans. Holmes was very detailed and almost perfectionist in his his plans and follow through.

    Yes, quite, indubitably, that's what a reasonable person would do before shooting up a theater, indeed.

    Cheerio good chap.

    The assertion is that Holmes was giving a warning. Being "reasonable" does not enter the equation. Holmes was very proficient in his communicative abilities. There are stories where he was attempted to join a gun club but was rejected as he communicated a strangeness about himself.

    Yeah, the owner of the club after hearing the voicemail left to him by Holmes issued an order that if he were to go onto premises to try to finalize membership the owner was to be immediately notified so he could deal with the situation by rejecting and removal from premises. That says all you need to know, when an owner will drop all other business to deal with that kind of problem.

    Soooo you want to lock-down private firearms because a loon didn't communicate his intent to your satisfaction.

    Yeahhhh....you folks are bananas.

    I didn't get that from his posts. What I do get from the entire incident is that there were warning signs that went unnoticed, unfortunately that seems to be a constant among these shootings. Pearl Miss., Columbine, the U.T. clocktower shooting of the '60s, this incident, etc. there always seems to be something "off" and plenty of warning signs. I think rather than locking down private arms it should be easier to have people that seem dangerous with a witness to have them monitored more easily legally, and I'm not talking about an off day, but when the owner of a gun range thinks this person is dangerously off his rocker that owner should be able to set in motion some way to keep an eye on them by authorities.

    That's not what he said at all Jerry. Stop trolling.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
