I'm going to cut them some slack and consider that it took them a couple minutes to realize what was going on and respond. A lot can happen in a couple minutes with a gun, a crowded theater, and chaos.
I don't know much about hiow fast someone can shoot whatever kind of gun he was using, but if it took the LE even one minute to respond, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of several deaths and injuries.
But I'm sure if you had been there, it would have ended differently, wouldn't it?
Post suggests some things. Sophistication and extreme planning.
By that we know that he wasn’t White. He was either Amish or ROP.
This is beyond your typical deranged guy. He planned this for a long time.
God be with those victums.
ABC reporting 24 year old white male as perp. Very early, and the report could be wrong, or other reasons?
Calling for 30 ft. platform to be placed in the area.
Your sarcasm noted. No, it would not have ended differently for I am not a policeman.
There appears to be active devices in the area. Multiple devices. Worries of triggering devices.
Actually, I am REALLY surprised this is the first time this has happened. People are sitting in the dark and totally vulnerable in these theaters with a small exit area.
Like I needed one more reason not to go to the movies ...
Anti-gun crowd going nutso now on this one.
Just saw this, WARNING: GRAPHIC.
Drudge is now covering this.
We need to ban Batman movies.
The movie houses channel popcorn smoke deliberately into the theaters to create more desire to buy it.
The shooters probably had inside access, like being an employee.
I’m surprised to not hear of anyone else who was carrying. I think I will start carrying when I go to the movies. With a tactical light.
Cops in the lobby of a large theater, for crowd control on opening night. So stand up in theater 8 with an AR-15 and light up the crowd. Going thru 3 mags before the cops even know its started would be easy.
Likely the first they would know is when people come screaming and running,,, from something that was largely over.
Around the net the gun-grabber *$$w*pes are already trying to take advantage. We need to be prepared to go on the offensive.
This really stinks of an Obama operation to gain support nationally to remove the guns from everyone, like in Australia.
We ALL need to be armed, like using the model from Israel.
Around 1995, our son-in-law moved his family -our daughter, and our first grandkids, 6 and 4, from Ventura County, CA, to Littleton CO., because the dad (divorced our daughter 1997), wanted to move his boys away from the encroaching gang element creeping in from L.A.
Then they had Colombine, where our grandsons were in a lock-down at a nearby enough school, ‘copters overhead, police cars screaming by, nobody sure what’s happening.
Then a cousin of another son-in-law was murdered in her Littleton, CO gift store - I’ve shopped there - murder not solved from about 5 years ago.
There’s been mayhem around these boys in ‘safer’ CO since they moved there, while Ventura County is fairly quiet for now, thank you - - -
Fast and Furious 2
wait, I thought movie theaters were “gun free zones”... how can this happen? they need to make more laws to make sure law breakers can’t get guns... oh wait..
