I knew it.
He had help.
Well yea, there's that.
I'm still waiting for the answer to who opened the door and allowed him access to the theater.
No one opened the door but the gunman. He paid to get in, sat in the front, pretended to get a phone call, left by the front exit door, got his gear together and came back in to do his killing.
thanks for the clarification. As with most of this stuff I generally steer clear because it is usually stuffed with idiotic speculations and shameless agenda-packing. I prefer to wait until the facts ooze up to the surface. Already we have abc and breitbart looking like fools for publishing un-vetted allegations. I'm sure that there will be more.
As a culture we've become so desensitized, demoralized, and disenfranchised that our reasoning skills as well as our coping mechanisms are totally out of whack. On another board I tried three times to steer the conversation away from the finger-pointing and blame assigning - all to no avail. The victims of this event - the dead and the dying - are just grist for their personal mills.
I fully anticipate yet another push for even more restrictions against the pre-victims of gun violence. I call them (collectively us) pre-victims because that is all we are when we are precluded from defending ourselves. A victim of someone else's violent tendencies, waiting to happen. And I shrug my shoulders and say "You do what you want - and so will I"
I won't be disarmed. I don't borrow trouble. I won't be cowed.
There was one post on another thread (different site) where one of the limp-wristed lefties breathlessly posted this holmes guy's recent purchases. As I went down the list I silently ticked off each item (got that - check; got two of those - check; I've got one of those, but mine's better - check!). I decided not to rub it in this eloi's face - some things are better left unsaid
