stop focusing on how to stop people doing this again and focus on why people do this please governments, i mean if a guy wants to go on a rampage he can use his car and ram into a school bus or a petrol station ect, stop trying to blame movies/games/guns thnx
"The insane thing is that terrorism seems to be determined by the reason someone like this does this sort of thing"
Which is what I was trying to prove wrong with my example. Thank you for proving my point.
Any more dumb contradictory posts, or are you done?
Every time some one mentions gun control in the USA i always think of this quote from Night Watch.
Its going to take such a massive amount of effort to bring down gun related violence to what people in Europe would consider normal that I wouldn't be shocked if we never lived long enough to see that even if they started today. There is just too many guns/ammo already in public possession to ever get it all back and to keep it away from criminals/crazy people.There had been that Weapons Law, for a start. Weapons were involved in so many crimes that. Swing reasoned, reducing the number of weapons had to reduce the crime rate.
Vimes wondered if he'd sat up in bed in the middle of the night and hugged himself when he'd dreamed that one up. Confiscate all weapons, and crime would go down. It made sense. It would have worked, too, if only there had been enough coppers - say, three per citizen.
Amazingly, quite a few weapons were handed in. The flaw though, was one that had somehow managed to escape Swing' and it was this: criminals don't obey the law. It's more or less a requirement for the job. They had no particular interest in making the streets safer for anyone except themselves. …
Its just too late for the entire of America when it comes to gun control. All they can do now is wait for hand held lasers to come along and make sure they dont sell millions of those to every one with $100.
It being Colorado. Im surprised someone didn't shoot back.
The legal definition of domestic terrorism:
Seems to need some ideological element to it. That's not to say this guy doesn't, but a lone crazy shooting up a cinema full of people, while a horrific act, is not terrorism."Acts of domestic terrorism are those which: "(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."
Ok, i see we're going to argue semantics...
"The insane thing is that terrorism seems to be determined by the reason someone like this does this sort of thing" doesn't exclude their reason as a factor in coming to the conclusion of terrorism but does require additional factors like the fact that it is someone deliberately committing a crime of mass murder with the intention to cause terror along with actual terror being brought upon a large group of people.
What is was saying is that if i go and kill 50 people in a theatre for shits and giggles it's a crime by a lone madman but if I kill those same people because i dislike my country's leader I'm a terrorist. How is it that I'm not both?

Edit: since someone will try point out the fallacy of this argument... Yes, night-vision optics goes without saying, this is a dark theater after all.

I'm guessing that over the course of a few weeks it will be determined that the university he is currently dropping out off missed several signs that the suspect was descending into crisis.
