From Sky.....Marleen Holmes (mother of shooter) apparently spoke to ABC news saying that she thought it was her son and that she needed to get to Colarado and said, "I think you have the right man".

So whilst he never raised any flags for the authorities, he obviously did with his mum.

Easy enough for a war enthusiast, ex forces, TA, knows contraband sources, re-enactment, internet etc etc etc

His mother knows something? Sounds as if she knew he was up to something.

Buckets of ammo, high caliber weapons. Not cheap, that is for sure.

Guns are always going to be made, they are not going to go away with a law, or with banning them.

I can see it now law passes headlines read: "All Multi-billion Dollar Gun Industry Manufacturers to Close Down Tomorrow."

Guns are obtained by nut-jobs, criminals, and anyone that wishes to cause chaos regardless if they are illegal, or not, if they didn't have guns they would resort to another means of destruction, on a mass scale.

Mass killings have also happened in multiple countries where guns are illegal for the general public to carry.

If someone in that theater would have been carrying their concealed pistol permit and knew how to use it there would be a lot less dead, or maybe even no one dead except for the perpetrator himself.

And lastly the only one that is going to protect you in this world is........guess.....You!

Not sure if any of you remembers Columbine, but by the time swat was dispatched, got to the scene and engaged the perpetrators more children died needlessly.

If one teacher, or administrator in Columbine would have had the weapon, and the guts to engaged the perps less people would have died.

Guns are not going away anytime soon.

My thoughts, love and prayers go out to all of the families in Colorado.

They will be doing theaters after this, of course its for your safety and the safety of others around you, now turn around and let me grope....i mean frisk your for weapons


That's where our attention should turn to...what are the implications? Also what are we missing when we focus on this?

It also seems to me that these sorts of events sadly act as a sort of common denominator for a disconnected populace. It's too bad we can't all rally around and discuss something positive.

Gun control is a double edged sword. More guns means more protection, and more gun crimes. Less guns means less protection, and less gun crimes. Give it up!

This topic is not about gun control. Please go to 1 of the 100000's of gun control topics to discuss what you are discussing, please!


Exactly, I said this way back in the thread and I am reposting this as it has to be said again!

There are plenty threads about guns, this is about an incident, it is extremely tedious to read page after page about yay / nay to guns.

ATS would be so much nicer if threads kept to topic rather than being derailed into a sidetrack, it isn't a guns discussion despite this guys method, it could have been anything, there were also explosives, but similarly it isn't a discussion thread on explosives either.

Than by your logic, the TSA would be standing in front of high schools after Columbine, but they don't.

And you need to give specifics instead of the usual broad ATS handbook rhetoric.

And sorry Charlie, you can't give the Feds more credit than they deserve.

The usual ATS hypocrisy, complain that the government is too big but constantly gives the Feds imaginary powers they don't have.

"Everybody thought at first that it was part of the movie, like it was just something that was going on like a promotional stunt or something," Caldwell told CNN. "So at first everybody was kind of dumbfounded." I especially love this part: ""Everybody thought at first that it was part of the movie, like it was just something that was going on like a promotional stunt or something,"

Oh, and this one: "Moviegoer Quentin Caldwell said they were about 15 minutes into the film when he heard a very distinct, "pop, pop, pop, pop." "My wife jumped, and I just kind of sat there like 'oh, it was probably just really good special sound effects,'" he told CNN.

Yup, i'd say television is causing brain damage!

Also, before this gunman, "burst" through the doors, no one noticed anything "strange", like a man wearing a gas mask, or "body armor"?

And how about this: The gunman reportedly deployed teargas in Theater 9 before beginning his shooting spree.

Theatre 9? NINE??? of all numbers, it had to be 9?

Let's check out more: nonsense....."The Caldwells were in an adjacent theater when bullets from Theater 9 pierced through the walls." Really??? Bullets pierce through walls now???

Only 12 dead, in a packed movie theatre? Are they sure there weren't 11???? Something smells FIIIIISHYYY!LINK

Sorry if i sound heartless...but i've stopped taking things at face-value, since 9-11.

And what a senseless, sad act.When I first started reading I had a physiological response. A sick feeling, as I am sure roughly 94% of You did as well. Unfortunately for me, only 94% of me felt sick

I think if people would have had guns in that theater and responded there would be more victims. Unless they had a Desert Eagle or some other type of cumbersome high calibre rifle (who would take that into a theater?). The shooter was armed to the teeth with body armor on. Not to mention all the panic that ensued and innocent people running around.


I think that is a completely wrong assumption.

I am not a trained sniper, or a military guy, or even law enforcement, and I only carry a .380. BUT, my .380 has a laser site that would have put a little red dot right on his gas mask and ended the massacre. If I didn't have the laser site, I would have gotten as close as possible, and put a couple of rounds in his center of mass, which would have stunned and disoriented him, and me too when I realized it hadn't killed him, but then I would have emptied the rest of the clip into his ass and jumped on top of him and took the shotgun.

On top of all that, once me, or any person started to fight back, others would have jumped in to help. Even if I wasn't armed, if I could have gotten close enough, I would have jumped on him, and once I did, then others would have followed suit.

Body armor helps things not penetrate, and might save a life, but it doesn't cover everything, and it still hurts like hell, and it still knocks you off balance when you're hit. It also limits your mobility, and a gas mask limits your range of vision. It would have been fairly easy to stay out of his peripheral vision and get close enough for a headshot, or neck shot, or just a good ol' bumrush to take his weapon.

What exactly is the Le 9Gag Army?


9gag is a forum that have had wars with /b/ from 4chan - 4chan invades 9gag, 9gag invade 4chan, etc.. They're as bad as each other, thought /b/ is slightly more insidious.. given the method of their forums.

Basically, kids. Kids that can attract dirty people. And dirty people that are mentally so retarded that they lap up the energy and excitement such things can give them.

We are in a brave new world these past few years, Im sure we are not far behind from having TSA at every school and theater.

And if you would read any of my threats you would know I never ask for big brothers help, there is no hypocrisy from me. I believe in liberty over security, because with liberty you will have security!

The story may be shocking to some. Why it would be will remain a mystery.

This happened in a country where anyone can go in and arm themselves to the teeth with a huge array of weapons.

This has happened before and will continue to happen in the future.

Do not be naive to be shocked by a story like this that occurred in a nation that embraces gun ownership.


(On a sidenote - who the hell brings a 3month old to a midnite screening of a loud violent movie?)

I smell a government op. They will use this to take our guns away. They are already saying they will have cops at the next showings to prevent this from happening again.... just the introduction of a police state.

They should do just the opposite... the only person that can stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. I'm sure if open-carry is allowed across the country most bad guys wouldnt dare take guns into public like this and start shooting up. Because if they did, a good guy would end it before more lives are lost.



Do you know what I smell? Everyday nutjobs. I am NOT directing the following to you, but; anyone that think that evil cannot exist without the influence of the superduper bad American Government, are either dellusional or just brainwashed by the latest fashionable Scapegoat-religion to blame everything bad on the West.

In sweden, for instance, there are gunnings each and every day now; however it is not, as the Media tries to make the viewer believe, 'Whities' that are behind the vast majority of the crimes, but, religious nuts and other criminals that have been kindly imported into the nation and have no thought of adjusting(And thereby gives bad reputation to the arrivers that do adjust and are very proper citizens)..
Sure, the blame for this importation is indeed largey the Politicians, that is indeed true, but the scum in question is already THERE, these people that behave this way and have no regards at all for life or to adapt to the new culture they have been offered, do not need to be brainwashed by any "TPTB", or Mind control(Other than, ofcourse, by each other and Religion), or other nonsense that tinfoil-sheeple cook up because they refuse to realize that evil Johns and Janes do exist regardless of any American Government and are nurturing and cheering on each other to continue to behave the way they do.

In short, there is nothing odd with events like these, and even if there would be no Government at all, these people would still exist.

As for it being an excuse for janking away the guns of everyday people, Please.

If that would be the case, then the pesky Killuminati could just aswell have used any of the previous school shootings, or even better, the killing of J.F.Kennedy as an excuse.

As for such laws actually working, I can reveal, that guns are NOT allowed in Sweden unless you are an orderly, and, yet, there are shootings and knifings all the time nowadays by the previously mentioned groups that do as they please regardless of any national laws, so apparently the "TPTB" would need to find out a better plan than guncontrol.
