He apparently told the police he was "The Joker" and also boobytrapped his apartment with explosives, so I think he was a nutjob. Not a political radical. Although sometimes there's a fine line between the two.

This incident is certainly going to be reason to support to ban of firearms, though.
Only as much as every other incident where someone shoots a whole bunch of people is.

That's true. And each incident will just continue to be another reason.

Theater manager here...

There are police in our lobby and nobody is allowed in with a batman mask or costume. Being in the business for six years doesn't have me scared because I think something will happen here, but it just makes it ever so easy to put myself in that situation. I've been freaked out all day. So far a normal night with considerable losses to Batman attendance.

****ed up **** man. I feel for the families.

If it were to happen at another showing, what would be the theory then?

A good reason if you ask me, but I've already debated this enough on another forum and don't want to derail the thread.

My thoughts go out to the victims and families. I went to TDKR earlier today and it felt pretty eerie watching that gunfight scene, knowing what went down in Colorado.

Really thankful no one I know was hurt or killed last night. I lived in Aurora for two and a half years, I've driven past this mall literally dozens of times in that span and two of my best friends in the world live only about 5 minutes away. Luckily they're broke stoners who don't go out very often.

Just read that he lived at 17th and Paris. I lived at 17th and Jamaica. 11 blocks. What a small fucking world.

It's amazing sometimes how close some seriously heavy things can be sometimes. I remember feeling like that around...well...9/11. I don't mean to derail this though...glad everybody is okay.

Crazy to think that I was watching that movie at the exact same time they were when this happened. As awful a thing as this is, I'm not entirely shocked. If you're a crazy sociopathic killer, a dark and crowded theater is almost too ideal. I'm actually a bit surprised that something like this hasn't happened before.

I wonder how much this will affect security measures in theaters across the country.

Also, as most of you probably know, this trailer has been pulled everywhere. I wonder if it'll make people apprehensive about seeing it when it finally comes out.
