An abomination, this, vile. There is no penalty dire enough for this monster. No torture too great.
Predictably, the left and right will offer up their opinions on guns as a result. Here's mine: The shooter had an assault rifle, a shotgun, a couple of pistols, at this report. Too many?
Actually, I think there were too few guns in that theater. There needed to be a couple more.
Reports aren't complete, but I didn't see anything about anybody shooting back.
Maybe it wouldn't have mattered. Or maybe, like that seventy-one-year-old CHL holder down in Florida who tagged a couple of armed robbers last week, some off-duty cop or legally-armed citizen might have cut this nutso down before he killed as many as he did.
Even if he was a bad shot and he hit a bystander along with the killer? Look at the numbers.
We'll never know.
We don't live in a civilized society. The wolves and rabid dogs are among us. Until they are all tamed or cured, the flock will always be at risk.
I feel for the families of those who lost people in this awful event. There are no words to comfort them. The family of the man who did it must feel overwhelming grief and pain, too.
Yes, he is crazy–sane people don't do shit like this. But that doesn't help, does it?
