Every time something like this takes place, everyone asks "Why?" and the media has to find the next sensational reason to give to the public to keep them watching/reading. They attack whatever they can draw a tie to: movies, video games, music, hobbies, religion, etc. It's their job to keep the shock and awe factor going.

My prayers go out to all those affected. No one should have to endure the suffering that these families are going through. As a community we need to stop whining about how this could reflect on us and show the world that this troubled person does not represent our sport.

Me too. I guess they know better than to let people educate them with comments. I guess it's ok to slander a whole industry for ratings.

Can't believe they are throwing crap up like this. Anything to keep the ratings going. Can't wait for the first politician to ban smoke sales or Paintball itself.

I have contacted Gator50, he most likely did not give consent and has the right to sue.

It's a public forum. By posting, I'm pretty sure it becomes free game to the public. Meaning anyone can use it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

They are making assumptions from the only picture that they have of the inside of the killer's apartment. It's literally the only thing they could see other than saying that the wall is white.

The real problem, is that although Colorado is a carry state, (permit to carry a concealed weapon is legal there), Cinemark doesnt allow any weapons in any of its establishments. Now this may seem like a good idea, and I see many people jumping on the "stricter gun laws" bandwagon, but the last 2 public shootings in Colorado, which were at the New Destiny Church, and the New Life Church, were both ended quickly because people in the crowd being fired upon were allowed to carry weapons and exercised this right. Both of the last shooters were killed by bystanders that were carrying, before they could take many innocent lives. The last massacre in colorado, (columbine), and the shooting at VA Tech were in zones where it was illegal to have a gun even with a CCW. Im not saying that I'm 100% sure things would have been different if the movie goers were allowed to carry, but it should be their right to protect themselves. The news should be attacking Cinemark for infringing on its Customers rights and creating a massacre out of a potentially avoidable event. Lets face it, someone willing to commit murder, isn't going to be too worried about breaking a few laws regarding where its legal to carry a weapon.

Im glad everyone in here was intelligent enough to read the entire post in context before sending me an angry pm. If our fellow members dont even have enough sense to look into it, we are not going to fare well from these kinds of reports.

Read some of the other topics in here, not only was a link to my profile posted, but people who are posting on a topic right above the original thread cant even take the time to read the post in question.

Gator 50 actually said :
