    Romney isn't going to touch guns in this Country, it's political suicide for either party, that's reality....

    Oh, gosh, Dallas, I don't know how to break this to you, but you are a bit behind on current events. Mitt Romney does not have an "administration" because he hasn't been elected yet. Michele Bachman withdrew from the presidential race long ago and would have no recent interest in staging mass murders to get more votes. It's aso questionable that staging mass murders would help one to acquire more votes. It's more likely that a sitting president like King Obama who has visions of usurping citizens' gun rights to facilitate easier imposition of his dictatorship would orchestrate mass murders to motivate citizens to accept abrogation of gun rights.

    A revolution made possible by individual gun ownership would not be possible.

    No, but we must make a link, so that we can generate a panic and headlines, to sell stories, wherein we read that there was no link.

    He was a chump who didn't know the difference between a Sikh and a Muslim.

    Relation: Both shootings in "Gun Free" zones.

    Seems quite different. This one seems more like a hate crime, while the other was more of a mentally unstable individual obsessed with comics.

    No, but it won't people from claiming it was.

    Every time someone commits a crime, they either be labeled a terrorist or copycat killer.

    Copycat or not, both shootings happened in "gun free zones". Worked real well, didn't it? If someone in either place had had a gun on them, I guarantee things wouldn't have gotten as bad as they did.

    I do wonder why no one stabbed the shooter , they do all have swords at all times .
  • JackoClubs Franklin 2012/08/08 09:33:06

    Hm..dunno; maybe it was the body armor?

    The aurora shooting would have been much worse.
  • JackoClubs tebearc... 2012/08/08 09:31:36

    Not necessarily; a couple rounds unexpectedly hitting his body armor--especially at that close range--would probably have given him a moment or two of reflection, or even made him bolt. People with guns on them where they "shouldn't" have them have stopped shooters before:

    Guns aren't bad. People are.

    A copycat tries to repeat or recreate an incident. In this case he should have been hitting another theater, not a church.

    No. He hated non whites.
  • Jay Theyme 2012/08/07 04:22:08
    Yes

    In a sense yes.
    Here again we have the otherwise bright and nice guy who seems to lose out on life and becomes a loner and what seems to be developing a vicious hatred for society AND some way they get to be the 'big scary' guy. If only for a moment they are a notorious talk-of-the-country.

    Something else I see here: In both cases they were sane enough to think of the one place where they would have the most vulnerable, unarmed, unprepared, most unexpected innocent victims least likely (or able) to defend themselves.

    Both contrived for themselves some 'scary characters' or 'halloween costumes' that were something the public would 'fear' or see as 'big and scary'.
    The young man choosing the 'scary costume' of Heath Ledgers 'Joker' and the older choosing the scary 'Skinhead' costume.

    So in a sense yes I do think these are just two versions of the same thing and one was probably inspired to become his version after the other (and interestingly waiting just long enough for that to die down a bit).

    Bright and nice guy? He was kicked out of the Army, his girlfriend left him, he was a White Supremacist who sang songs of hate. His Army discharge was of the type that prevented him from ever re-enlisting in any US military service. His body was covered with hateful tattoos. He lived a loner's life. Bright and nice guy? Geeesh.
  • Jay Theyme askmike 2012/08/07 04:56:15
    Jay Theyme
    Geeesh.. yes, actually before all this he was described by best friends, co-workers etc as quite a nice friendly guy. He was described as quite bright.

    So now what do you have to say?
  • Franklin Jay Theyme 2012/08/07 11:19:09
    Franklin
    can you think of any mass murderer who is not described that way in the MSM after the fact ? For that matter have you seen a victim of a shooting who was not a "Honor student" in the past 20 years ? He was in fact a skin head and a loner who most recently had been fighting with his girl friend
