'Batman' Massacre Victim

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."

There should be a test you have to pass before you are allowed to talk into a microphone. Hell, at least the sound guy can count to two. 'Check, one, two!" Dave probably isn't familiar with the concept of numbers.

It's about as absurd as blaming Bush for Hurricane Katrina

"Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine is an idiot"

Let me guess, if Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine blamed Bush or Romney for the incident, he wouldn't be an idiot?

Too many years of loud music must have damaged Mustaine's brain.

Holmes got the gun legally - not sure what gun control laws could've done to prevent it. Aside from not allowing anybody to own guns at all

Dave Mustaine needs to be on medication and to wear a tin foil hat so that the gov't can't read his thoughts.
