    Why is it that parts of the nation go into an uproar because they feel a black kid in a hoodie on a rainy day is suspicious, but a white kid in a long trenchcoat on a summer evening with bright orange hair is completely overlooked? It also isn't like the white kid had nothing under his trenchcoat, he had an assault rifle, expanded bulky clips, 2 pistols, a shotgun, gas canisters, and a fucking bulletproof vest rammed under that thing.

    Shouldn't the theater have at least checked his jacket to make sure he did not sneak any food in?

    Why is it you needed your own special thread for this rather than asking it in any number of threads on the same topic???

    Parts of the nation do not believe a black kid in a hoodie on a rainy day is suspicious. George Zimmerman did because he was on neighborhood watch where robberies had been occuring and asked him what he was doing, and wasn;t even sure he was black according to the 911 tape.

    Why is it that parts of the nation go into an uproar because a white kid with orange hair, wearing body armor, and brandishing a handgun, a shotgun, and an assault weapon, kills and wounds several dozen people, and call for taking guns away from law-abiding citizens who have the Constitutional right to PROTECT THEMSELVES from unstable people??????

    If just ONE person in that theatre would have had a firearm in their possession, the carnage would have been stopped much earlier than it was, and LIVES WOULD HAVE BEEN SAVED.

    Just one of the reasons I do not go to movie theatres. Plus, crowds are creepy and I don't like sticky seats. The only places I go that do not allow my legally concealed firearm(s) are military bases and my place of employment.

    Believe me, if I see a guy with red hair wearing a trench coat in July in my neighborhood, I am freakin' way beyond suspicious!

    In a public venue, especially in the city, people just aren't all that observant.

    They see freaky looking people all the time, and are simply desensitized to the out of the ordinary.

    Around their homes, it is far different.

    No law abiding citizen could have had a gun...the theater was a gun free zone per the management and owners.

    Gun Control: Colorado is a concealed-carry state, as a noted film critic points out, but so was Virginia when a college campus there was racked by violence. Like the school, the theater chain was also "gun-free."
