Cant even go see a midnight showing of a popular movie without being scared for your life now. Seems like these shootings happen almost once a year...scary stuff.

Yeah, fuck that shit. There are lunatics out there. Sad but true.

Hate to sound cynical, but this is one reason why, when I go to sit in a dark room packed with a couple hundred strangers, I have my gun on me. Imagine if someone in the front row was carrying, there might be fewer grieving families today.

Dude had on a bullet-proof vest - you may not have stopped him before he stopped you.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I'm a responsible and competent gun owner. When I carry (licensed), it's for the protection of myself, my wife and innocents in my midst. It's neither illegal nor, in my view, immoral, so, yeah... no joke.

Maybe not, but it would have been worth a try. Also, the standard idea is two shots to center mass, one to the head.

Also, the theaters I frequent all sell beer, so, no weapons are allowed.

I guess they aren't exempted under the 51% rule?

That would be illegal. And hippies are peaceful anyway.

Duh!!!  Who doesn't bring a gun to a PH show???

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

I can't even fathom bringing a weapon to the movies.

Nor can I imagine bringing a 3-month old baby to a midnight showing of Batman, yet there she is listed amongst the casualties.

When does "paranoia" become "readiness"? Interested to hear your opinion on that threshold. People get attacked, shot at, robbed every day. Real talk.
