Already there is calls for gun control and I listened to one say we should ban standard capacity magazines because of this shooting - News flash - the "assault rifle" (it's not an assault rifle) had those mags and it jammed. . . so that was not how he got the high body count.
My bet is most got hit with the shotgun. A 12 ga with the right shot is in will hit more than one person and he can spray it around as he shoots. . .
And lets not forget that he had months to plan this and get around the law. And would have gotten around them as the real experts agree. Gun control is and should be a dead issue. It is not effective and does nothing to make us safer - just the opposite it encourages nuts like this since they know there will be no resistance to the attack.
Folks, don't let them lead us off the path. We need to forget the tool and the quick fix (more laws) - they don't matter and don't work.
We need to know how this guy thinks, what was he thinking, why did he do this and how did he avoid anyone learning about his plans for the months he was working on this. . ..
And to anyone that wants to blame the gun I ask this simple question - Would you rather he used the bombs he obviously knew how to make? Would it be better if he blew up the people or used Molotov Cocktails anyone can make to burn them all to death? Probably would have got him a higher body count . . . is that what you want?

Here we go. . . . Bloomeburg is showing he is a fool again and calling for gun control like it would have done a damned thing.
Look you idiot he had a bullet proof vest/ body armor, helmet, tear gas and gas mask. . .his apartment has been rigged with booby traps. Do you really think the tool is the issue here? You think he would not have used pipe bombs or Molotov cocktails instead?
Active shooter in a gun free zone full of victims is the issue here. You made them helpless with your gun control that the criminal does not care about. . .
The problem is the shooter, not the gun. Easy answers won't fix this. . ..
Deal with it
Folks I am really getting sick of watching the news dance in the blood of these poor folks. I am sorry there was a shooting, and I grave for the families, they are in my prayers but really now can we have a reality check?
This guy put a lot of thought and prep into this. . . .no one noticed? And the news folks are taking about Columbine. . . Like it has any connection other than being in the same state. I am sure the calls for gun control will be quick to follow as if that would have stopped this.
Folks stop focusing on the tool. We need to know why he did this and how he kept it secret.
The gun is not the issue. He had tear gas, gas mask and bullet proof vest. . . I am told the theater was a gun free zone, so it's illegal to have a gun in the theater. . . Ya, that worked about as well as the other gun free zones we have. . He was going to do this no matter what. Would you be happier if he used a pipe bomb or Molotov cocktail? Killing is illegal and he had no problems planning that - you think he would have cared if his weapon of choice was illegal too?
As for the gun free zones, when will we grow up and admit that a gun free zone has never saved a life, and if anything puts us all in danger since these nuts know that if they attack there no one has the tools to stop them. Reality time - a gun free zone does nothing but insure the attacker gets free time to shoot until the cops can get there. . . .nothing more.
I pray for the victims and their families. . . And I pray that we will not let the anti rights crowd use this to distract us from the real issue of what was wrong with this nut that caused him to do this. The tool used is irrelevant.
