This has gotta stop.

People should not have to second guess their safety in a freaking movie theater, mall, school, etc.

I'm sure that'll make the victims' families feel much better.

At least the idiot killed himself.

Coming soon, the manifesto. Just another alienated loser from society who felt a need to strike back at a society that has left him behind, and never paid him the 'respect' and 'attention' he 'deserved.'

I wonder how long it'll take Rush Limbaugh and Bill O' Reilly to make a statement condemning this behavior.

All jokes aside this is very sad and sickening. I honestly don't understand the thought process one has to kill/harm innocent people only to commit suicide. I also don't understand why the media is reluctant to call tragedies like this, Dylan Roof, and other incidents like this domestic terrorism.

And you're absolutely right, we shouldn't have to second guess our safety in places like those. What a sick cold world we live in.

R.I.P to those who lost their lives in that movie theater today.

You have to take care of your own safety. You cannot count on people to obey a 'gun free' sign, you cannot count on the police to show up (see the story about Dallas Police not responding to an armed robbery). You cannot count on any one but yourself.
