As many as 40 officers, including SWAT teams and hostage negotiators, were on scene at the home in Aurora, Colorado, on Saturday, January 5. An “armed and dangerous” man was holed up inside a suburban Denver home early Saturday, possibly with as many as three hostages, police said.

Blurbs about this are all over Twitchy, HuffPo, and elsewhere.

Predictably, the comments are blaming the Right and the NRA.

All the people in Aurora need to immediately hide their dogs.

Aurora needs an exorcism. I would not be surprised if the situation is “just blocks” form the other disasters.

Something to think about:

If or when the tyrants decide it's time to start rounding up 'illegal baby-killing assault weapons', this is what it will look like.

The murder-enablers in Big Media will describe the peaceable gun owner as a dangerous extremist, barricaded in his compound, holding his children hostage. It will end in fire and death. After the tyrants have killed him, his wife, his children, and his chihuahua, they WILL find a bag of meth in his refrigerator and lots of the grossest child pornography on his computer.

Count on it.

I'm not saying that's what this is ...

I'm saying don't EVER trust the pathological liars in Big Media and Big Government.

“Predictably, the comments are blaming the Right and the NRA.”

They know they’re losing over the CT incident - they need more, so they’ll publicize these to the hilt. They happen all the time...but now we’ll get every detail.

These horrific events will continue,at an increasing pace and scope, until the goal is achieved.

The majority of of Americans will beg to be disarmed.

Or, could be the guy lost his job, the family is in financial dire straights, and the wife threatened to leave him because of it. Who knows why he went over to the dark side.

The Oboma administration keeps the nation in a constant state of crises (never waste a good crises). The more chaos he can create, the faster he can push himself as the savior and "fix it"(his way).
People are on edge because of this. Preppers sense something is wrong, and they're trying to protect themselves from it. Oboma is creating a nation of mad zombies, and he's doing it on purpose.

No. He's not a "nice guy."

AURORA, Colo. - Four people are dead including the gunman, inside of an Aurora townhome early Saturday morning.

Police used tear gas to try and get a gunman out of the townhome then went in about 8:30 a.m. and shot the gunman.

According to Aurora Police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson, three people were found dead in the townhome. They are believed to be family members of the gunman. A fourth person was found unharmed.

My wife and I sat down and watched "V" last night, the film with Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman. In it you see the government completely managing the news through state-run media. They change stories, cover up stories, plant evidence, falsely interpret footage... the striking thing to me is that, in the film, all this behavior is attributed to a right-wing nationalist regime. Yet in real life we see this same behavior coming, not from state-run media but from politically-allied media, and from a leftist government.

So the filmmakers got it right, except they attributed the evil to the wrong side. I suppose it had to be that way to get the film made in H-wood.

Must be some severe oxygen deprivation up there. Something perhaps in the water?? Whatever, something is definitely amiss there.

I used to visit that area in my business travels. Noticed a lot of people who seemed to have the 1000 yd stare, perhaps it was from lack of oxygen or inhilation of weed...who knows.

V is us. Les Miserables is us. Never forget redemption and grace! And justice with mercy.

I am sorry for the victims in this tragedy.

Aurora needs a spiritual miracle to be purged of these tragedies.

Our nation needs a spiritual miracle to be purged of the communists and national socialist totalitarian stage managers.

Yeah! Same here. The government had complete control of everything. That's a left wing agenda. I find it odd so many youngsters follow that movie and and don't see it. They can't do anything that isn't PC, or government approved.
It may be because the schools have become PC prisons, and they have no idea what freedom really is.

The left is wandering into some dangerous psychological ground with their growing cognitive dissonance.

They’re supporting one thing that they know is dead wrong but blaming the right for the results. It simply cannot hold and a lot of lefty brains are going to seriously snap.

As much as I hope you are right, I'm not as confident as you.

All that firepower required by the police and yet the left wants to deny me the right to protect myself and family with a lot less.

"All that firepower required by the police and yet the left wants to deny me the right to protect myself and family with a lot less."

And if a new gun control bill gets through Congress in the created crisis atmosphere that includes criminalizing ownership of currently legal guns, that firepower will be deployed against the American citizenry.

“They change stories, cover up stories, plant evidence, falsely interpret footage...”

Sounds like the lousy, confusing and irresponsible reporting job done at the Sandy Hook (CT) School.

This is the headline from Forbes:

Another Deadly Shooting — In Aurora. It’s Time For Gun Buyback

I don’t read anything yet about the perp, and who he might be.
