Rabid OWSer, enraged by director Nolan’s powerful anti-OWS message in the film, most likely.

he may be involved but whoever conceived this was probably Moslem.

Look at whitey christian, ignore the Moslems behind him fully armed.

The political blood dancers will have a field day with this. I guess this means we need to ratify the United Nations small arms treaty huh?

God bless the victims.

Just checked there are 25 people living in Colorado named James Holmes. Going to be lots of confusion for awhile on the internet.

Hope folks do double checks before posting photos of perp.

I wouldn't exactly leap to the conclusion that any OWSer -- particularly the fanatically devoted ones -- was "Christian," in any given sense. ;)

That's an interesting theory, and quite possible. He could also have just been angry about the OWS ineffectiveness in general and went postal because of it, and the movie was the last straw.

While I detest muslims with every fiber of my body, I believe we should hold off on profiling this guy until we know who and what he was.

We lose credibility when we immediately assume he was a muslim or white or pink.

That being said, may the muslim deportations begin.

Well, he lives in Aurora, specifically, it seems, but I assume there are multiple James Holmeses in Aurora. Going to suck for a while being any of the other ones.

It’s sad once you realize there are hundreds of thousands of people whose only interest in this whole incident is that the perpetrator be from the “right” ethnic group or have the “right” beliefs so they can start posting tirades on internet forums. And it’s certainly not just here; there are obviously just as many people on DU or other places desperately hoping it’s a Tea Party/Militia Member upset with illegal immigrants as there are people hoping it’s an American Muslim convert and Obama campaign contributor.

Hmm...a week before the UN gun control treaty that our POS-in-chief has a boner for signing...a “mad gunman” goes off on a rampage...

Just wondering at the coincidence, that’s all.

They of course notified der Fuehrer of course so that he can parade the corpses for political purposes.

Does anyone think that the Kenyan and Holder’s FBI would be brought in if the shooter had been black, hispanic or muslim?

Coincidental event strategy, terrorists stage attacks to create partisan outrage.

What is the message here if it was just some neo-nazi white boys?

Then what is the message if its Muslim Brotherhood?

Police located the suspected shooter behind the movie theater and took him into custody. Police have identified him as James Holmes, reportedly in his early 20s.

Inside the alleged gunman’s car, officers found a gas mask and several firearms. According to CBS, one of the weapons was an AK-47 assault rifle.

Aurora police also found explosives inside the suspect’s home.

Authorities remain on scene at the movie theater, where 10 bodies remain inside the crime scene.

The shooting is the worst mass shooting since the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007, which left 32 dead. Hundreds of officers and deputies from every Denver-area police and sheriff’s department, as well as the FBI, are assisting.

President Obama was informed of the shooting at 5:26 a.m. EST. Expressing shock and sadness, he has promised his administration will do everything they can for the city. Read his statement here

Aurora police say victims were transported to at least six area hospitals, including six victims taken to the Children’s Hospital. Family members can call 720-848-2626 to check if their loved ones are being treated at a hospital.

The Century 16 movie theater is located next to the Town Center in Aurora, near I-225 and Alameda.

Details are still coming in. KKTV is sending two crews to the scene right now. Watch KKTV 11 News This Morning for the latest information.

*Editor’s Note: We originally reported 14 dead because that was the number given to us by the Aurora Police Department. Authorities have since reduced the number confirmed to 12, and 11 News has made the appropriate changes.

This was exactly the very first thought that went through my mind when I heard this news this morning.

Obama needed his crisis, and now he has it. This treaty will flow through the Senate with little more than a peep. They'll parade the victims out on national news outlets and call any Senator refusing to ratify the treaty as cold and callous.

I can easily blame Moslems for a terrible event even if they actually have absolutely nothing to do with it.

Because the don’t deserve any protection whatsoever, to give them safe harbor a fraction of an inch emboldens them only stronger.

*sigh*

Where's that "Journalist's Guide to Guns" graphic that's always paraded out during these sorts of events?

The MSM, and ESPECIALLY CBS, wouldn't know an AK-47 from a Daisy.
