It is impressive. If the reports are true and a baby was shot point-blank, I know for sure I wouldn't be able to function after responding to that.

Of course there is a increase or a greater chance of this happening somewhere else. I am NOT saying you should be afraid of going out to see a movie, but you should be aware of it happening and do what you need to protect yourself best you can. Of course, there is always situations where that too is impossible.

Either way, people learn and gravitate toward things they hear and see. This happens from things as simple as children or even adults hearing curse words and having that trigger them into using the same foul words or reactions to things.

We are taught to learn and to react to things, so there is a good chance of copy cats or repeats with this situation too.

Stay safe.

Early word has it that it was likely bought underground as there's some comparatively lax firearm laws in Colorado.

Colorado has had issues with its firearms laws for some time now, this was heavily debated when Columbine happened and likely will be debated far into the future when further tragedy occurs.

There's definitely some problems there. This is fairly close to where Columbine happened, too.

This is awful. I hope that the injured sustained non-life-threatening wounds.

Is it confirmed there were two gunmen?
These tragedies are horrific enough with one shooter, but it always frightens me more when there's 2+. It suggests some level of organization and agreement between them. It suggests they have some twisted motivation beyond losing their minds--and the notion that two such individuals can find each other and discuss these things without one of them ratting out the other on their intentions... it just scares the shit out of me and keeps me up at night.

This will be in the news for a VERY long time, the media won't let people forget. Not looking forward to it myself.

(Not because I think we should just forget, but because I'm personally emotionally incapable of handling news like this right now)

The report is one arrest, and they're searching for a possible second shooter.

I really hope the Iranian flag thing is just Reddit b.s. I don't want things to go that way, where random suburban areas are targets.

Holy shit if true, but then again it's a random dude posting something on the internet, so who knows if it's true...

Really dude? Really?
Who knows right now what it is, but you read that a gunman was dark skinned with an Iranian flag and you immediately conjure up some false flag conspiracy? Is it even possible in your reality for an Iranian person to do something bad or is it always just the CIA/Mossad?
Can't wait for you to provide evidence... in the form of links from f'ing InfoWars.

I mean even if the people are Iranian (or Middle Eastern) it doesn't mean too much. Just someone who is possibly still very sick and wants to hurt others with whatever their view may be.
