My co-worker was supposed to be there last night. Thank goodness she decided not to go.
Apparently in this theater, nobody had a CCW to stop this madman.
And some in my family wonder why I CCW EVERYWHERE!
A gunman wearing a gas mask set off an explosive device and then fired into a crowded movie theater near the Aurora Mall, killing 12 people and injuring at least 53 others during a midnight opening of the latest Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises."
Police arrested a man wearing a gas mask next to a white car in the parking lot behind the theater. 7NEWS has confirmed that the suspect is a 24-year-old white man, James Holmes."He did not resist.
He did not put up a fight," said Frank Fania, a police spokesman.
Moviegoers said they didn't know what was happening when they heard a hissing sound and smelled smoke, and some thought the attack was part of the movie, since it occurred during a battle scene. Then they saw a silhouette of a person in the smoke at the front of the theater near the screen, pointing a gun at the crowd.
Many of those injured or killed were young adults, teens or kids. The victims range in age from 3 months to 45 years old. The 3 month old has been discharged and is doing well, a hospital spokeswoman said.Many of the victims were rushed immediately to hospitals in police cars by responding officers because there were not enough ambulances.
Ten people died in the theater, two more were rushed to nearby hospitals, and were pronounced dead. The Police Department initially said 14 people had died.

Below are some pictures from my co-worker. The suspect lives across the street and the entire neighborhood is blocked off.
Gun Grabber #1, Mayor Bloomberg is already coming out with his gun ban rant as is British twat Piers Morgan.
Is it a coincidence the the UN Gun Ban Treaty goes up for voting in 7 days?
Prayers for those affected and for justice against the madman who perpetrated this.
