6 Horrendous Things People Are Saying About the Aurora Massacre (Slideshow)

  • 7 of 7

6. Blame Hollywood, the Internets, the Media and the Movie Theater

Waving Knight

Fred Jackson, the host and director of the American Family Association, blamed Hollywood for the attack in a radio segment, as well as the internet and the media with the “liberal bias” therein displayed.

It’s not surprising to see a conservative Christian speaking out about Hollywood or the media, of course.

Torrance Brown, Jr., was present at the Aurora cinema last Friday and lost a friend, A.J. Boik. He is reportedly filing a lawsuit against Warner Bros., the studio behind the film “The Dark Knight Rises,” because the movie was “especially violent” and Holmes was “basing his actions around it.”

Brown is also said to be suing the movie theater for negligence in not having a more secure emergency door (Holmes was able to prop it open) and also Holmes’s doctors for not taking better care of their patient.

Yes, even as many of us are just trying to get our minds around what happened not even a week ago in Aurora, the lawyers have already been contacted.

The right to own and bear arms is the difference between freedom and slavery.
History proves this repeatedly.
Never ever allow armed people to disarm you.
The problem is not weapons, the problem is what some people do with them.
The laws for dealing with such abuses are quite adequate.
Traditionally in England citizens were allowed weapons but the police were not.
They had no problems until the police were issued weapons.
In Switzerland there are military style weapons in every house as part of their civil defence strategy that saved them from invasion throughout two world wars.
Govts and their officials are easily corrupted and therefore should be kept toothless while citizens have a right to defend their homes and families not only against foreign threats but against domestic threats also... for instance when corrupt and criminal authorities commit acts of violence against the citizens.
Of course corrupt and criminal authorities do not like this. Bullies and thugs never do like it when their potential victims can protect themselves and hold the corrupt criminals accountable.
What i want to know is when you are going to hold the torturerers and mass murderers in your govt accountable for their crimes against humanity?
Mass murder of civilians in non war zones by signature drone strike IS NOT OK.
Torture as official govt policy IS NOT OK.
If you support such evil you are a criminal guilty of being an accessory after the fact.
That is the law.

I am a proud American who has guns in my home. I am not shooting up anything or anyone. I will defend what is mine (home, kids, cats, myself especially!!! ) if I am attacked by someone. and I know how to shoot...don't like it and did not want to learn but felt it was necessary due to the culture pervading my side of town.

Pearce is an idiot or a crackpot or both. No further attention should be given to PEARCE, and attention given to the "points" (???) re raided only in passing, dismissively.

I guess that there will always be someone who wants to use a dreadful event to make their own point, it is a shame but it happens. I am left wondering if those who have suffered, including their families, are getting a bit forgotten.

In Russia some people at power want to legalize guns. It's horrible!
