    Now I thought artists had to submit comics weeks in advance. I get that the political guys get a shorter time but it seems to me this is up AWFULLY fast….

    This guy was NOT “suicidal”, which adds another element to the real terrorism of it. Violent societies, praise violence, and are shocked when it becomes “real”? Kip Kinkle, and others, who’ve NOT “offed” themselves, show a pattern of preparation, should someone have been paying attention?

    The reaction to this over here in Europe is really, really stupid. In Paris the premier of the movie was postponed, in Germany the theaters are beefing up their security personal for the premiers. One guy. One gun. Worldwide terror alert. Soon you will have to take of your shoes to watch a movie. Or all violence in movies will be banned. God forbid this guy had something even remotely to do with AQ, otherwise the U.S. will also go into “threat level red” lock-down – again! The enemies of freedom know exactly where to hit us: on our wimpiness! We will happily give up all rights, freedoms, joys, activities, even thinking, knowledge, progress in exchange for the FEELING of security! Google Ben Franklin’s quote concerning that notion. Sorry for the victims, sorry for the relatives, but please, governments, movie-industry of the world, don’t over-react. Not again. Pretty please?

    Errm… You know about this “Internet”? I hear it’s the coming thing… It also helps that the cartoon is b/w, very simple and even symmetrical…

    Yes, we are mortified. I don’t understand why klebold, harris, kinkle, squeeky lynette fromme, lee harvey oswald etc, etc, etc pull a gun or guns on others and start shooting. Apparently keeping guns away from nut-jobs that use them that way is an abrogation of someone else’s rights. Time will tell what was on this guy’s mind, maybe.

    Local reports state he shot at least 71 people, 12 died.

    You can’t defend against a nut just as the Norwegians found out. There is another quote by James Madison that comes to mind about freedom and an armed populace.

    ^^Theo: Viet Nam, Grenada, Nicaragua, Panama, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq, Honduras, and “target” painted on Iran; all the “bad guys” with “harmful intent”, weren’t "foreign, or “Marxist”, “Fascist”, or “socialist”. Mass killing is wrongly called at times “war”; slaughter, is slaughter.

    Do you know L. Neil Smith? I read all his novels. I came to the conclusion that – in the real world – the “armed populace” won’t work. Look at the amount of homicides in the U.S. every year. You think that would go DOWN if everybody had a gun? AND access to pain killers, weed, speed, happy pills, alcohol, the lot? In a country that sees itself as rich/poor, black/white, up/down, Dem/Repub? Are you promoting genocide?

    @MortyForTyrant

    No. Not for the genocide thing. It is an oddity in this country, though, that the places with the highest crime rates are also the places with the strictest gun laws. I will submit, however, that that may also be because of population density and the opportunity for criminals to do their thing.

    BTW: Batman hates guns, and doesn’t use one, because his parents were killed with a gun.

    This guy is another Jarrod Loughner type.

    Actually,he carried two Glocks and a semi-automatic rifle. He had another rifle,probably as a back-up in his car. The man was a walking arsenal,not a “one gun” guy.

    The first half of your post was good, but you slipped off the rails.

    @MortyForTyrant

    You mean over-reacting is bad? How about Runnels who wants to over-react and ban guns entirely? Whew, glad no one over here is over-reacting.
