    While it is appalling behaviour, and you obviously feel for the victims and their families, I'm not quite sure as to why it is news. They have mass shootings in America on a fairly regular basis. Why is it unusual? It's what Americans do.

    Now the anti gun filth will rally against the US gun laws. Truth be told with an captive audience in a theatre someone with a bolt action rifle (found on almost very farm in NZ) and some speed clips could easily do the same carnage in NZ which has the toughest gun laws in the Western world.
    A 303 Le Enfield with speed clips was so effective the germans sometimes thought they were facing an auto rifle. Beat their 5 shot Mauser 8MM hands down.
    Its nutters we have to watch out for not how many guns are out there. You can only fire one at once.
    What would have stopped this shooter dead was someone in the audience with a pistol.

    Have to agree with you prefect ... and it's responsible gun owners / hunters that will get the most flak over this.

    Edit. My thoughts are with the families of those who got shot.

    I don't think one person with a pistol would have achieved much, more than one would probably trade shots with each other.

    The biggest problem here is that he got much of his armament and ammo over the internet purchases. Not that he wasn't by law ineligible for age, citizenship, but using the web to buy munitions should be curtailed if not stopped.

    On a serious note -- he had a high tech degree and could only find work at McD's. Frustrating? In spades!!!!!

    Add to the mix that the vid-games he played all answer frustration with violence and you have a cork about to blow. Too bad a lot of people paid such a high price for his personal demons.

    You are just guessing.

    At least if they were trading shots less other people would have got shot.

    And the person with the pistol might have been a better shot (say ex army or ex police)
