The reports say ''71 shot'' see further posts with quotes and links. sheesh, Iam saying it just exactly as the Police Cief of Colorado reported it and the media is reporting it, but hey you seem to think of your version as the only one you believe...save it, I don't care for your opinion. I would prefer to believe in the actual reports.

No, people (and many media outlets) are claiming that 71 people got shot. That would mean bullets hit 71 people. I am correcting everyone and saying that is not correct. 12 people are confirmed shot and dead, and 59 were injured. Sure, some of those 59 probably got hit by bullets, but I have been following this since 12:00am in the morning, and know that most people just got shrapnel from an explosive device, and others injured from tear gas inhalation. Not everyone was shot.
James Eagan Holmes has been described as a shy and well-mannered young man by a neighbor, who claims the Colorado shooting suspect was heavily involved in his local Presbyterian church

Sadly things like this can't be prevented, you can try to prevent it, but crazy is crazy blaming it on firearms is immature and baseless.
If someone wants to do something bad enough they will do it no matter how awesome you try to take preventive steps.
This world is just in a era of mental decay, there is no fixing decay, it rots.

While flipping through the channels just now, I heard this news blurb:
"Apparently, both candidates have agreed to hold off running some new "contrast ads" for the time being"
"Contrast ads" is another name for attack ads.
It looks like the Obama campaign seized upon the opportunity first. Romney's campaign followed immediately.
This is it, my fellow Americans. This is what our choices have been reduced to. "Vote for me because I briefly stopped running slanderous attack ads against my opponent in the wake of an unspeakable tragedy."
A woman killed when a gunman opened fire in a Colorado movie theatre had survived Toronto’s recent Eaton Centre shooting and wrote in a blog that she was “blessed” to have survived the first incident. Jessica Ghawi was among 12 people shot dead early Friday morning when gunfire erupted at a midnight screening of Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo.

It works. Look at all the flack the NRA got for their convention in Denver after Columbine despite the fact that the date and venue had been set for years in advance.
People are stupid and emotional. Politicians count on this.
The shooting killed at least 12 people, including a 3-month-old baby, and left approximately 59 others injured.

I watched the press conference on TV and the police chief said 71 people were shot. 71 people....by one person. This is really hard for my mind to comprehend.
