In Memory of the Unfortunate Colorado TDKR Movie Shooting RIP

Last night a tragic event took place at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado.  Geek nation we lost 12 of our kind to the hands of a mad man as he opened up fire on the movie goers after smoke bombing the theater.  In addition to the deaths, upwards of 50 other people were injured.  James Holmes stormed the theater halfway through the screening decked out in full riot gear with up to four weapons blasting his way up and down the isles.

What an absolute nightmare, and mind you Colorado has very lax gun laws.  Call me a Commie, but should a regular person really be able to obtain full on riot gear and an arsenal?  I get the right to bear arms, but where do you draw the line?
