'Batman' Massacre Victim

To Megadeth Singer:

Don't BLAME Obama!

EXCLUSIVE

Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine is an idiot ... because Barack Obama is not to blame for the Aurora massacre ... so says one of the people who was shot in the theater that night.

TMZ spoke with Carli Richards ... who sustained multiple gunshot wounds when James Holmes opened fire during a screening of "Dark Knight Rises" last month.

After watching the footage of Mustaine blaming Obama for "staging" the Aurora shooting to push an anti-gun agenda, Richards is lashing back ... telling us, "Some people think the President is a good scapegoat but he didn't shoot me."

Richards adds, "It’s obviously kind of absurd and people who make up conspiracies just want attention."

"Everybody is emotional at this time and needs to blame somebody I guess. I don’t think they realize the consequences of not being responsible for your own actions and James Holmes needs to be held accountable for his, to whatever way the justice system deems fit."

She's baaaack    

This is really getting out of hand. Why is it that you are either left or right, red or blue and one "side" insists the other "side" hates America and all it stands for and its statespersons are all anti-American?
.
Remember this, folks - A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF CANNOT STAND.
.
This is downright frightening.
.
On the other hand, I applaud that victim for her bravery in speaking out against this obviously Kool-Aid drinking delusional imbecile.

She's right--he's desperate for attention. And that makes him pathetic.

That is right. Obummer is responsible for trashing America and keeping racism alive and well, not the massacre though.

Most President's don't achieve true-greatness and their-own-grand-vision until second term:


-President Obama will be no different.


Mitt Romney has no chance - none.

Dave Mustabg obviously is still have after effects of whatever drugs and alcohol he drank in the 80's. Saying Obama staged the CO shootings is as crazy as the people who believe Bush staged 9-11. The world is a scary place sadly and there is always some misinformed moron who wants to blame whoever is in office that they do not like for whatever tragedy happened. This idiot is actually insulting to the victims of this crime and has no right to use their deaths and injuries for some political stance. As for him saying he doesn't know where he will live etc. As my Mother in Laws says " Don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you" don't like the US then move buddy!

Someone who takes pictures of themselves and spams the internet with them could also be considered bids for attention,

Say what you want about Dave Mustaine, but it's still his opinion and he is entitled to it.

For the record, he's not the only one who feels that the government is trying to remove guns from U.S Citizens and if there is proof that the Aurora shooting could have been prevented and wasn't.. someone is guilty of allowing it to occur.
