In regards to the midnight movie massacre in Colorado, I haven’t seen anyone make the kind of insensitive remarks I’m about to make, but these things need to be said.
The youngest victim was a 6-year old girl. What those parents must be going through is beyond my comprehension. How do you rise above something like that? Do you ever?
Have you seen any of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies? They’re violent, loud, dark, scary masterpieces. Who, in their right mind, would expose a sweet, innocent 6-year old girl to a Batman movie? At a midnight screening, no less? At a running time of 2:45, that means that poor thing would have been out until the wee hours of the morning and, without a doubt, frightened out of her mind.
Here’s a quote from one of the survivors:
“Do I run out the door? Is he going to shoot the baby? What am I to do?”
This genius brought his 4-month old son to the screening. Another candidate for father of the year. I don’t claim to be a better or smarter parent than anyone else. But why would you bring a 4-month old baby into a horrific environment like a Batman movie? This is what happens when children have children. They’re not going to be denied their God-given right to a good time by a stupid mistake like a child.
Neither of our two heroic candidates for president, Obama and Romney, have said a word about regulating assault weapons. Just a lot of “Oh, how awful. How tragic.” They’re so terrified of the NRA and the well-financed, well-organized gun lobby, that they’d rather suck up to the money spout than take a stand. Two cowards. God bless Mayor Mike Bloomberg of NYC for disemboweling the gun lobby. Someone in power has to do it.
