Batman Shooter: James Holmes

I mean where the hell does these people get all their guns from? These people that run into schools shooting people are always armed with imagine guns, pistols, smoke grenades and all sorts of other artillery. Why on Earth would you sell AK47's & Shotguns over the counter like they are hot cakes? No wonder these mass shooting happen so often. It seems as if anyone old lunatic can get his hand on a gun in America...

Batman shooter James Holmes is a registered Democrat

So does that mean democrats should not have guns?
George Stephanopoulos lied to say he was a teaparty person.
What they also do not say it that its a gun free zone which means if you follow the law you can not carry a gun to defend yourself against people that do not follow the law. People seem to miss that irony.

All these people calling for gun control are wrong. Gun Control bans guns from movie theaters. The sign on the door telling people they can not bring their concealed weapon because they would be breaking the law only keeps honest people unarmed. If we allowed citizens with permits to carry everywhere then it would be less likely things like this would happen. He knew no one would be armed and there would be lots of people. It was open season on innocent lives.

This guy looks like he's been a lunatic from the get go. There's something about his eyes that make me cringe. I just want to pluck them out with a fork or something, just to make him suffer. I hate when murderers/pedophiles smile for their mugshot.

Looks like he may have been a victim of bullying and now lashed out. That's society.

This is EXTREMELY sad I prayed for the families and for this young man that had a promising future as a doctor what happened to make him commit this HORRIBLE crime? It really hit home I have a son that is 19 years old that has completed his second year of college and has completed his first year of a medical program at the university.

People com.plain about Texas having the death penalty but this guy is why! I could care less if he was abused, bullied, from a broken home- Killing innocent people is just plain wrong. Even if his lawyers say he is crazy he knew what he was doing was wrong

@TJ: As much as I can appreciate your honest sentiment, thanks to the robed-bastards, political-appointees known as the U.S. "Supreme" Court,
this Divinely-inspired nation, -not unlike the
student-victims at Columbine- DOESN'T HAVE A PRAYER.

wow ew    

What went wrong?
Why would he do this?
It's bad enough when a person kills 1 other person let alone 12.

He had a bright future as a doctor and then he turns around and plans something like this out.... Why?
Is medical school that bad?

And evil has no color. Black people have done just as bad as whites or asians and other races. There's living proof of that all the time. People like this make George Zimmerman and Kaycee Anthony look like angelic so to speak. Hm.

to resue the American people.
