Sorry, but in this country, movies are approved by the state. Ratings are given by a state agency, which determines who can watch them. These ratings do not exist in other countries or at least nowhere near to the same extent. Censorship is much less overseas, as anyone who's travelled outside the US can attest.

I dont ever recall any of my pistols making decisions for me. He could accomplished more with a poison.

Sports cameras dont show the fans running onto the field of play, but the media will continue to show this crap again and again.

What puts it over the top is its ties to the military and it's long service life.

The AR-15 remains somewhat popular amongst ex-military guys because they're already trained in its use and maintenance. Same goes for the Beretta model 92.

It's popular with others mostly because it's light, rugged, reliable, and a proven design...not so much because they want an Army rifle look-alike. But Colt's AR-15 constitutes a pretty small minority of the .223 rifle market any more--there are lots of other (better) options in that field. Colt Arms is a tiny shadow of its former self.

I just wanted to comment on this and the other comments that the rest of the country is asking "what is wrong with that state?"

Don't worry, we aren't saying that.
Not one person here in Ohio that I have talked to has said anything close to that.

We are as stunned and shocked as you are and we know this can (and sadly does) happen in far to many places... we aren't idiots. We know it's not a "Colorado thing".

lovfl wrote: Have they done drug testing on him? People that are on antidepressants have been known to kill and committ suicide. It does something to the thinking process of otherwise normal individuals. There are over 3000 documented cases of this!

I'm 'guessing' that he was. This type of behaviour is likely to be influenced by pharmaceutical intervention. In addition to the psychiatric drugs, I'm 'guessing' that he was also on ritilan during his grade school years. Obviously, something caused him to hold a tremendous amount of anger and hostility inside while maintaining a facade that everything was honky dory. These dangerous pharmaceutic drugs seem like a probable culprit.

I can't imagine it will go on for years, the OJ trial went on for about 10 months, and was the longest trial in California history at the time

Casey Anthony was also another huge published and followed trial and went on for like 3 months

The trial could go 2-4 years if the insanity defense is made and argued long and hard, which can drag out that long - per a talking head on TV today.

Default Don't get it

Such a beautiful and nice state, you people of Colorado live in; you are lucky to live with the backdrop of the Rockies behind you and nature at your doorstep. I don't get why Columbine, Aurora, and Balloonboy would have to happen there, do you? I actually thought of this when I heard this on the news.Is it the freedom in the vast expanses that makes people feel that they can do what they want? the altitude? The influx of Californians that are too crazy for that state and had to take it elsewhere? Or just happenstance. Our sympathese and prayers to all those who lost love ones, and those many who were wounded just watching a movie.
