Hmm, saw it last night, unimpressed ... but I've not seen the first two of this trilogy.

Richard, Richard, that was a mistake.   ;D  No, well, seriously, it might have helped to watch him get to where he was in the 3rd film just to get the big picture - helps to have the background.

So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

I had argued earlier that where I live stuff like denver does not happen. Unbelievably, today it happened. Many injured several dead.

It looks now, based on news reports , that it was a deliberate terrorist attack, and not a random crazy mass murderer. Terrorist, because the attack apparently targeted a specific group of people for political, racial, or religious reasons. Looks like mumbai india, style, in terms of the action. This guy did not get that far though.

Really fucking Unbelievable!

To the best of my knowledge, nothing like this has happened here in my lifetime.

My heart goes out to these people, as you say unbelievably sad :(
I don't think any gun control law would have made any difference here. Do we know if he was a legal gun owner?
If it is "real" terrorism then no law would have any effect on people with that level of religious or political zeal.
I say "real" because it looks more like ignorant racism than an act with a "genuine" political motive (the Sikh victims are unfortunately often confused with Muslims, not that that should have any relevance!)

Apparently he was a "white supremacist"

I have to say I'm not superstitious at all! But the fact that this has happened here, right after our argument, has unnerved me  :-\

As far as banning guns goes. He used one hand gun. Probably an imported Glock. But this does not make me want to ban guns. If anything, I want to add two Black Russian Terriers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snAsiuydydU Or maybe two Giant schnauzers? to my house. And maybe move to a castle.  :-\

Its a shitty shitty time in our history, for so many reasons.
