    • JJJ

      I'll cop some flack for saying it….but honestly, moments like this deserve a real political debate about gun control. This is not because horrible events should be politicized, but because we owe it to the dearly departed to question how this kind of event can happen.

      • Turbodude

        WRONG !!……if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have them. Proven fact JJJ

        • JJJ

          It's not wrong, mate. First, I didn't say completely outlaw them (just that a serious discussion about gun control was needed). Second, plenty of countries have placed very strict gun control laws on the population without major incident (Australia, the UK, Sweden). Finally, the military, police force, homeland security, and professionals could still have guns. These are the people charged with citizen security anyway, so it wouldn't be just 'outlaws'.

          • Turbodude

            Your right about something needs to be done for sure. Assault weapons should only be available to police and military personnel but they will find their way into the hands of criminals eventually despite our best efforts. Lets just try to not get all reactionary over this and come up with some solid fresh ideas. I have the right to defend my family and I happen to be a very responsible gun owner. Guns in one safe and the ammo in another.

            • http://twitter.com/JJrrake @JJrrake

          • Laura

            l agree, and it is not a political reason for me. it is common sense, and public safety. realistically, what civilian needs an assualt riffle and hundreds of rounds of ammunition? an assualt rifle is made for just its name, assault. there is no need for a civilian to be armed with that kind of weapon. we dont have to ban all firearms, but certain ones should be kept off the streets!

            • sadman

              I need an assault rifle and thousands of round of ammo. I am free and I make my own decisions. You can buy a Porsche in this land of the free (even if you will most likely drive to fast and kill yourself, your passengers and any bystanders who are in the wrong place at the right time). When the herd gets scared because a wolf got through the system, the response is always that dogs and sharp teeth are bad. The issue here is that the whole room was full of sheep and not one sheepdog was to be found.

              Oh, and you can't make something not political by stating your opinion with a precursor of being "not political."

              • KillinTime

                    the law abiding gun owners didnt have their guns on them because the theater was in a GUN FREE ZONE.
                    See, the laws work…

            • guest

              There's no difference between an assault rifle and a hunting rifle or a WWII rifle. Fully automatic weapons are already banned unless you apply for a class 3 permit, pay a huge fee to the government, have a deep background check and register your weapons.

              A civilian AR-15 is a semi-automatic weapon, meaning you pull the trigger once and it then automatically loads another round into the chamber. You have to pull the trigger each time you want to fire a round; you don't hold down the trigger until the magazine is empty like you probably believe.

              A bolt action rifle or any other hunting rifle is a lot more powerful than a 5.56 chambered Ar-15 "assault rifle."

              Fully automatic weapons are already banned yet it does nothing to keep them off the streets.

              • CaptainInsano

                Just imagine how many more people would be dead if this nut could legally have bought an AK-47.. thank god we at least kept that under control

          • dave

            Hi Chive,

            I'd like to offer my opinion as an Australian who has grown up under gun control. I understand the debate around gun control is both passionate and complicated in the United States. You don't have to agree with it, but it might be good to consider what has happened over here.

            In Australia we had our worst gun massacre back in 1996, 35 people were killed, in the 18 years prior there were 13 mass shootings (defined as 4 or more dead) and in the decade following the gun reforms there were Zero, i dont have stats for the period between 06 -12 but can't recall any.

            At the moment I am a stable law abiding citizen, on the few occasions I've fired a gun it's been fun and safe. I'd like to go target shooting and own a rifle. While the restrictions on me owning a weapon are annoying hoops to jump through, it's good to know that those same restrictions apply to all the weirdos, nutjobs and criminals I went to school with.

            I can walk down the most violent street in the city and my main fear is getting punched by a drunk because no one has guns. Of course there are still guns around, but they aren't everywhere, criminals mostly shoot at each other. If a single person gets shot over here it makes headline of the national news.

            Living in fear is horrible to contemplate, I was at the midnight open of batman and my only fear was work the next day. I honestly hope you guys can find a compromise as we have here – hunters still get to hunt, we have shooters at the olympics, gun laws don't have to mean the end of firearm sports but might lead towards less indiscriminate mass murders.

            Things like 28 day cooling off periods to give the emotional time to center themselves and smaller clip capacity to limit casualties might be reasonable places to start?

            Finally consider that 46% of Americans will at some point suffer from a mental illness, which tragically appears to be behind the shootings in Colorado.

            my thoughts are with you,
            Dave

            • Sna

              Well written, Dave.
              This applied to pretty much every scandinavian/European country as well; we simply don't run the same risk, and simply don't have to fear the same scenarios where we could randomly get shot down by some random crazy person that got his hands on firearms or automatic rifles.
              I'm aware of the fact that guns are sort of tied into your culture over there in the states..

              … Actually, nevermind. I was going write a longer post but decided not to, since nobody would give a flying falafel anyway!
              My thoughts are with the victims of the shooting, R.I.P.

          • Rayscar2

            Remember a couple of years ago, the riots in England? How many many people got killed or injured because they could not defend themselves.

            • Adam

              Honestly? Not that many. Not to weigh a life, but your statement was ambiguous to start with. There are plenty of non-lethal ways to subdue an attacker that will both incapacitate them and not kill them. Criminals in the UK have guns, but as pointed out previously it tends to be at each other. Gun crime in the UK is few and far between in spite of the alarmimg amount of them that there is in the UK.

            • Scouse Ben

              Not that many at all. People weren't fighting. Just looting.

              But how many more would have died if there were loads of guns out on the street?

          • jimbozo

            First, they will never outlaw guns. It's a pretty big part in the constitution. If you change that piece of paper around, we no longer live in America. Second, criminals don't really care for laws or have ethics, so they will get their hands on something that harms people. Third, does everyone forget about Norway?! A country with some the strictest gun laws in the world, where 70+ people lost their lives because a nut job secured some weapons.
            There are evil and malignant people in this world, nothing we can do about it except to hope that some heroes rise up out of the occasion.
            God bless Auroa and it's people.

            • sheebah

              Defending something simply because "that's the way we've aways done it" is such a horrible way of thinking. I'm not jumping in on the gun debate here (Living in Canada makes it pretty easy for me to know what side of the fence I sit on that one) I just find that "don't fuck with my rights" type of mindset to be barbaric and poorly thought out. It used to be someones right to own another human being don't forget. Evolve.

        • AnyoneForCoffee

          Turbodude, it's exactly that mentality that allows these mass shootings to continue. Nothing will change if you don't change anything!

          Many years ago, anything over .22 was banned across the UK – even our Olympics shooting teams have to train overseas. Remember our police are also still unarmed.

          Now compare our gun crime rates.

          • Guest

            You can own a 50 cal Barrett in the uk as well as an ak47 you just have to prove a sporting or practical need. Some of our police are armed, go through London and you'll see police with sub machine guns. That kid would probably have found a way to kill if he had access to guns or not.

            • AnyoneForCoffee

              All auto and semi-auto weapons are banned in the UK, even air guns, so there is little chance of anyone getting a licence for an AK47 or high-powered sniper rifle. If you know someone who has one of these, the number you need to call is 999….

              Okay, we have some armed police but they are either guarding something or waiting for a call to any incident involving a firearm. 95% of UK police are unarmed.

              As a result, most 'armed' crime here involves only a knife or a large hammer or…..*very* occasionally, it will be a shotgun.

        • guest

          11 people died yesterday in Texas when their truck drove off the highway. The truck had 23 people including children riding in it. It happened while they were heading north on the U.S. 59. Thousands of people are killed a year when people careless drive trucks. We need to put a stop to people getting there hands on these dangerous automobiles, that can so easily kill people. Its time we have a serious debate about truck control!

          Or.. we can look at the real problems. The man was a derange individual. End of story. Stop using a tragedy to further your political agenda.

RIP to the dead but lets get back to boobs and stuff………… and fuck you babyfartmagizax

            • guest

              Exactly my point. Every time something like this happens people come streaming in to make their points(political comments or otherwise). Here's an idea how about we respect those that lost their lives. Send thoughts and prays to those that are injured. Find a way to help out the families of those effected.

              The same thing happened in the Taylor Morris thread. People start putting up comments about "this is why there should be no war". I understand you're trying to make a point, and you have the right to do it. But this is not the right place or the right time to make that point.

              This is about honoring the victims, this is not about you or your beliefs.

              • Colombo

                I truly am sorry that these good people had to die (and by accounts some died saving others – for which they have my utmost respect) just doing something they loved and were excited about – it really does break my heart.

                The tragic thing is this will not be the last time we hear of a mass shooting in the US. You don't need a debate to figure out that the relative ease of access to guns is the main issue. Take the latest murderer – great grades in HS, college degree and was able to get into a Phd program, plus no previous criminal record – would have been able to pass even the strictest evaluation test in the US and yet was able to order ammunition off the internet, purchase an assault rifle and multiple hand guns – without being flagged once. There is no possible reason that a person requires that much weaponry or ammunition to protect themselves.

                • canadianmedic

                  I would offer that the true issue is more likely mental illness clearly this man had mental dysfunction and again a system has failed with catastrophic consequences

                  • Colombo

                    Whatever his mental state – surely someone who is stocking up on that many (non hunting, non sport related weaponry and ammo needed to have been flagged by some agency, to me it suggests a flaw in the system. I actually have no issue with a person owning a gun or guns – but there needs to be proper checks and balances that goes beyond the preliminary background check. It just seems ludicrous that someone who wants to or owns a deadly weapon – which is solely designed for killing – is forgotten about or rather not followed up with after a preliminary background check (or in the case of those gun fairs where the V Tech killer got his weapons – no background check at all).

              • Caller of Bullshit

                You hypocritical piece of shit. You're talking about ppl bringing up their own ideas when you just brought up your own about truck safety or some bullshit like that? And I WONDER what 23 ppl(including children) were doing in a truck that big in Texas? Hmmmm, maybe illegal immigration? So quit bringing your bullshit on this site.

      • Guy

        I'm am pro guns, I have two in my house. However, I do believe that there are some types of guns (like the type of assault rifle used here) should not be sold to the public, period. For sport shooting or not, who needs to fire that many bullets that fast. The only gun control needed is on guns like that.

      • Rayscar2

        Chicago and New York have some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, yet there is more gun related crimes there then in Florida.

        • Maverick289

          The whole underlying point of the second amendment is that individuals and the country have a right to defend themselves. Under it, the expectation is that, should the U.S. call upon it's citizens to defend themselves and their country, they will be able to do so. How will you be able to do such a thing if all you've got is handguns and sporting rifles. Those types of firearms are worthless in modern times.

          • dave

            I think Mav has a pretty valid point and is not deserving of the downvotes. None of us will live to see an America without guns, you have the largest military in the world, civil war history in your consciousness. The best everyone can hope for is a compromise

            I do believe there is a balance to be found, previous posts have discussed restricting assault rifles and their greater ability in national defense.

            I'm not familiar with the specific roles of your National Guard or Army Reserves so maybe it already exists but surely a new entity can be created to focus solely on home soil defence tactics and training.

            If assault rifles were to become restricted, the best compromise I can come up with is to move these weapons to a secure gun club or the local police command and have supervised range use. These beefed up gun clubs could work in any number of ways, with the owner's weapons securely stored I think this may be the best outcome for both sides, owners aren't forced to say goodbye to their favourite weapon/family heirloom and the most dangerous weapons aren't freely circulating.

            Sorry if none of that made sense, it's getting pretty late here,
            Dave

          • Babyfartmagizax

            Whether or not that is the true "point" of the 2nd amendment is not really as clear cut as you make it out to be. Are all of our gun owners members of "well-regulated militia?" The wording is ambiguous which has led to many of the disagreements over its meaning.

      • -k9 USMC

        @jjj gun control works ask STALIN, HILTLER, Castro, Quaddafi, Pol pot. Your so uneducated to say something like that you probably don't know anyone I've even mentioned here. Other countries have been scared off to attack our borders just because of the amount of guns Americans have…….

        • Atticus

          I really don't think that has deterred any country from attacking us in any way, shape, or form. Do you really think that other countries have thought about attacking the US, seen the statistics on the number of guns owned by citizens, and said to themselves, "Darn it. Our trained military would stand no chance against a bunch of unorganized civilians". Do you think that maybe, instead, no other country is stupid enough to attack us outright considering we spend more on our military than any other nation in the world? In fact, when it comes to a ranking of countries by military expenditures, we spend more than the next 29 countries combined. It is delusional and completely ignorant to believe that other countries would be afraid of a bunch of ragtag militia fighters. This isn't Red Dawn. Get a clue.

          • In yo face

            Umm hello

            "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." is a quote by Isoroku Yamamoto, Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. Of course it was originally stated in Japanese, this is the English translation.

            That's gotta suck for you. I'd get some cream for that burn lol

            • Woop

              You're right. In WWII. Check the year because it's still entirely possible countries will just straight out invade USA mainland. Because strategically that's the smartest thing to do. Its the same paranoia and fear that is being used to manipulate the public since the 60's and you're proof its still working.

            • Atticus

              In yo face –

              You might want to take a look at this: http://www.factcheck.org/2009/05/misquoting-yamam

              Regardless, even if it was actually true that he said this, what bearing does that have on our current military and geopolitical situations? Zero. Very few people, even in the highest rankings of our government and military know just how many military bases we have worldwide, but the number has been reported to be somewhere close to 900 in 130 different nations. The fact that we have over 5000 nuclear warheads at our disposable might play an integral part as well. I'd say those two factors have a lot more to do with why no nation would attack us than a fictionalized quote from a Japanese Naval Commander from 70 years ago. Are you really this naive?

      All the political stuff set aside, this is what I know. This is my country. I love it. I will do what ever is necessary to defend it and my family. That is my right and my responsibility as a citizen. If anyone tries to take away my guns, I will fight them with every legal means necessary.

      I also know that this country is hurting. There is a time for politics and a time for healing. Right now, my state, my community, is trying to heal. Fighting on the internet is futile. Intelligent discussion is appropriate, but the calling of names and things is not helpful.

      I hope and pray that we will all find peace.

      My thoughts are with the family members of those who were killed and with those who have been shot.

      • http://twitter.com/JJrrake @JJrrake

        But fighting on the web is so funny!

        But how many times has a gun in your hands in this country at this time saved you or your family?

        Sorry i had to ask that specifically so that no one would say that soldiers at war with guns save lives everyday

        • Lisa

          "But how many times has a gun in your hands in this country at this time saved you or your family?"

          I have a different perspective on this than you might expect. My Mother was shot (accidentally, by my biological father) in the knee when she was 8 months pregnant with me. So a gun in the hands of an irresponsible person almost killed me before I was even born.

          My kids' Dad was a sniper. Although he may not have saved my life directly, he saved innumerable women from being raped/killed during the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. A gun in the hands of a responsible person saved lives of innocent people and took lives of those who were bound to do harm.

          I was headed up to hunting camp last year when I saw a young woman walking on the side of the gravel road. There was a car following her. She was not dressed for Colorado in October. I pulled over to see what was going on. She was fighting with her boyfriend. He was in the car. He started yelling at us. I got out of my truck and faced him, my hand on the handle of my 9 mm, (the gun I'm holding in my avatar pic for Intense Debate.)

          He backed off. He said a few choice words then got in his car and drove away. I took her back down to town and delivered her to her parents.

          Can I say he would have harmed me if I didn't have my gun? No. Can I say that having the gun kept me safer than I would have been? Hell yes. If he had come at us with an intent to harm me, I know I could have shot him. I would have felt horrible. I would have done what's necessary to keep myself and others safe. I hope I am never in a "me or them" situation, but if I am, I will use every means necessary to make sure it's them that's going out prone.

          Good people are good people. Bad people are bad. It isn't the gun that murders. It is the person holding the gun. If the bad guy has a gun, I want one too.

          No where did I say that my views or love of this country is better or stronger than anyone elses. I simply said that this is my country and I love it. Simple. Pure. True. It's not perfect, but it's mine and I can't imagine living any where else. 😉

      I don't. Having an actor show up doesn't change anything, and I'm sure the victims need family and friend support… not an actor.

    • bab

      yes but….as their life experience has skewed into some strange dimension between reality and fiction plus massive unrelateable trauma, perhaps having a live batman show up at your house isn't the best answer for someone to cope with having watched what happened inside there….not really sure, just thinking out loud.

    • Coloradan

      Hi all. I am a survivor of the '99 massacre at Columbine, just a few miles down the road from this horrible tragedy. I lost friends that day in 1999, and I lost a lot more. My friends and I were traumatized, many still are.

      What I need you all to know is that for many of us, what was most traumatizing was not the brief period of terrible violence, but the weeks of being thrust on a national stage in the midst of what was the most unimaginably terrible time in our young lives.

      What the victims of this massacre need most right now is NOT more attention (the kind a celebrity visiting would bring). They need privacy. They need to heal. They need to take solace in their family, friends, and community. Trust me, I know.

      I know the intent of this kind of movement to do things or these victims is nothing but positive, and based in care. I know that we all feel like there nothing we can do and that we WANT to help. But please, please hear me. The damage done by the burning spotlight can be worse than what was done that day. Please let this petition to get Christian Bale, and the others like it, go for the victim's sake. Please allow them time away from the cameras. Please give them space to heal.

      That's my plea. I wish someone had said it back then, so I'm saying it now. KCCO.

      • http://www.facebook.com/erich.backhus Erich Backhus

        Agreed. I was in my Sophomore year of HS when this happened. I grew up just down the road from Columbine and would have been there that terrible day if my parents hadn't moved years before. Let these families heal, let them mourn. Don't go throwing more attention there way as I'm sure they've all had enough already. How can a wound heal if you keep picking the scab?

        This makes total sense, Coloradan. First, thank you for speaking up and being so candid. My heart and prayers go out to you for all that you have endured. Everyone wants to help, but they end up causing more damage as a result by doing these kinds of things. For Christian Bale to come dressed in character to each child who lost a loved one would not only be unbelievably awkward, it would be a visible reminder and direct connection to the tragedy itself. There is nothing Bale could say or do that would replace a loved one, no matter how big of a heart he came with. Bale tragically lost a friend in Heath Ledger in the 2nd film, and the character Ledger played was emulated by the evil person who caused these events. I can only imagine that he is hurting as well from all the painful events that have surrounded this series of movies. The wound is still fresh, and it will be for a long time to come. Let the people of Aurora heal, and let's give them privacy, prayer, and positive thoughts. KCCO

      while this sounds cool in theory, first off Christian Bale would NEVER do this, he isn't going to put on the suit and pretend to be Batman in real life, I mean c'mon thats really rediculous. Second the last thing these kids need right now is anything to do with Batman, time heals all wounds, but I would imagine for them anything to do with that terrible tragedy is far too fresh and that wound far too deep.

      • GI Joe

        Best suggestion I've seen is to have Christian Bale dress up as Batman and then dress up Holmes in a Joker outfit and then put them in a room together and let Bale beat the ever lovin' shit out of him for an hour. Now that I would watch in IMax.

      So true. The last person they would want to see is the last person they saw while choking on tear gas and dodging bullets. People don't realize that this would only be a call for more therapy for these children. The name "Batman" does not deserve to be linked to some spoiled suburban brat's killing spree. All the writers and artists over the decades have worked hard to maintain integrity and compassion in the character and repeatedly teach through those comics that killing does NOT have to be the way to solve any problem.

    • Chivette123

      Yeah I agree. I think batman is too much for them to handle right now after the ordeal that happened during that movie. I think some other superhero or famous figure should go cheer them up. Batman is just not the right choice for this situation. The idea behind it is from the heart, it's just not the right thing to do right now.

    I'm all for support of those affected, but (and please understand that I'm not saying we shouldn't do anything for these people) wouldn't drumming up all the effort to get Bale dressed up as Batman and sent down there show the wrong message to the children here? Batman is a fictional character who, in all honesty, isn't the hero needed in this situation. If anything, support should be thrown towards the police and paramedics who actually saved those people's lives.

    Don't get me wrong, any emotional support would be great. But if we are idolizing a hero for this situation, it should be the real people who make a difference. If Bale and Nolan want to help, that'd be great, but let's look for the unsung heroes.

        Denver I completely agree with you. The Police, Fire Fighters, and EMS are the true Heroes. Christian Bale has proven that he is a D-bag and he won't even bother with making a statement. At least Nolan did make a statement showing his support to the victims and the victims families.

    • MasoBall

      What do you mean the Dark Knight Rises wasn't associated with the massacre? That's where it happened, in the midnight premiere for the movie. Also, it's quite possible that people could sell this t-shirt and with the money raised from it use it as charity for the victims of this incident. Plus the shirt helps raise awareness of the incident which is just another way of helping honor the victims.

      • mbk

        He's going to raise money selling shirts written with sharpie? I'm sure that's exactly what is going on here… Even if for some reason all logic and common sense has left the world and that's true it would still be classless and inappropriate. And while it is true that that particular movie was playing the actual movie has nothing to do with the crime. It's offensive that anyone tries to oversimplify something like this by giving it a catchy tag.

        • MasoBall

          Okay that makes sense. I agree that that's wrong to publicize yourself with some sharpie drawn t-shirt when it most likely didn't even happen to this guy; he was probably just looking for attention.

    • What a D

      • Snap

        All things aside, what really matters here is probably…oh i don't know, the victims? Not whether or not some guy made a t-shirt because of the tragedy? Also, it's irrational to say that it wasn't associated with the Dark Knight Rises…. not only did the killer yell "I'm the Joker" before he began shooting, but he was also dressed like him. That being said, I agree with KBM that it didn't happen because of the movie itself. That's like saying the movie Bad Boys caused people in Miami to steal heroin. People will always try to make sense of senseless acts of violence. It's impossible.

    • Paul

      I thought the same thing when I saw this. This is not any way to show sympathy. Using the words "DKR Midnight Massacre" seems like he is trying to put some catchy tag line onto a horrible act. Do you think any of the victims families are referring to it as that?

      • Getthepicture

        I would think if I saw this shirt and was part of the "DKR massacre" even 20 years later that shit would play thru my head. None of these debates or tokens of remembrance help the victims. It helps the one fucking asshole who took pleasure in it. Wanna change it? Don't talk about gun control on the chive that's a waste of f'n time. Go buy a gun permit and carry one on u at all times if u're worried it's going to happen around u. THATS the only thing u can do for urself right now!
