    Look at what happened in Florida this week when those two thugs tried to rob the internet cafe and the older patron was carrying a concealed weapon.

    Just saw that NYPD is placing cops at theatres showing this specific movie. Why? That I don't get.

    God Bless the victims of this tragedy.

    That will never happen but for the sake of the argument let's say they were banned. There are already millions and millions of guns in the US. It's not a commoditiy that disappears after it's used. A gun made in 1912 can kill you just as easily as one made in 2012. It'd take 100 years just locate and seize all the ones already out there...we're stuck with gun violence.

    I just made a thread in the political forum to discuss this. Let's just leave this thread to talk about the actual event, and not the politics of guns.

    It's very encouraging to see you guys moderate yourselves, I'll never understand why that doesn't happen on the Strip.

    Because God forbid there's a copycat attack or investigation reveals that this nut was part of an organized conspiracy targeting the movie...the NYPD would be beset with hand-wringing second-guessers bellowing about why the NYPD didnt anticipate this.

    Agreed although there are only so many ways to express your shock, sadness and anger about the event before the conversation evolves.

    I'm curious- was there a police detail there for crowd control as it was a late screening of a predicted blockbuster? The cops on this board have undoubtedly been trained in active shooter. If there was cop(s) there no setting up a perimeter and waiting for SWAT like the old days. We're trained to go in there and immediately engage the suspect with supressive or neutralizing fire. The sad irony is that this change in tactical philosophy was a direct result of Columbine.

    From what little I've read they apprehended the shooter in the parking lot so I'm guessing none of them were on the scene to engage(?)

    Haven't read the whole thread but this country has GOT to support freedom of gun ownership and strong background checks to allow law-abiding citizens to protect themselves against people who, because of their very nature, will do anything (legal or illegal) to obtain weapons. If only some off-duty cop or guy with a concealed carry permit could have been there to take this guy out after he shot his first victim.

    Anticipating the hand wrining or not, now that you bring it up, the copycat potential or conspiracy (as unlikely as it seems) seem to be a valid enough concerns that warrants vigilance.

    Better than hanging out at the Goomar's place for 4 hrs at a pop like in Nassau, ya?

    It's because the people on the Strip are crazy, certified wackos!

    The Hampur....it's where you come for sanity and rationale conversation.

    Yup, from a super upscale neighborhood and top area school: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/...d-high-school/

    They're terrified of us in the hampur. The smart visitors walk around on egg shells careful to not start a hampur retaliation.
