When, one, wants to drive an automobile... He needs to go through some kind of "process", to see whether the person is eligible to drive or not.. The reason, for, why people can't just operate an automobile -- without a license -- is, to not hurt/kill somebody..or TO NOT POSE any kind of THREAT to anyone!!

So...why do we have a psychopaths with guns around? Why isn't there some kind of course, rules, the future gun holder needs to pass through?! How much has to happen yet to see, that, there is something wrong in America?

Everytime we hear about shootings in schools/public it's always here in the U.S.

From now on, people will go through a medal detector when going to see a movie. What a great future we are building for our kids...

My sympathies for the victims and their families notwithstanding, I do feel bad for Holmes' parents. To have a child fail you so badly and so publicly and cause so much pain for others must be a really crappy feeling.

$10 bucks says he's some wacko anarchist who got paid to do this so more anti-gun laws could strip even more civilians from protecting themselves against this kind of nutcase. If I had been allowed a conceal carry permit, that sick F* would've been neutralized before he ripped off a second round.

Wow...I feel for his father just by watching him on the news with all the press asking him questions and he continued to walk with his head hug in SHAME stating "No Comment"....SAD situation all around for the victims and their families and of course the Holmes family.

Here's a tip: How about finding out how the heck this kid bought assault rifles? Tell us which laws he broke that are ALREADY on the books and enforce THOSE!

Yeah, here they omitted the part from the family about "We appreciate that people will respect our privacy."... not from the media, what world are you from??? They are on this like flies on s*!t "This just in, here's the father, ROBERT, the guy with with a big f@!*in' red arrow pointing at him!!!!
I'm seeing the media sensationalism in this case like I almost never have before.

I wonder..... if the news didn't cover these stories in so much detail, would the idiots out there not do it to become famous?

Please TMZ.. don't give this guy undeserved attention. You keep posting about everything HE does and he gets attention that should be going to the victims of this tragedy. Do not make this guy famous. Please.

The shooter will ultimately be admitted to a psychiatric hospital just like the guy who shot Gaby Giffords and killed innocent people.

This shooter and the shooter from Arizona deserve the death penalty.
