Many of you know Colorado has been under a lot of stress lately due to wild fires.
But we definitely weren't expecting a shooting anytime soon...
In Aurora, Colorado last night, there was a shooting at the midnight showing of Batman. A man went into the theater, set off tear gas, stood on the stage and shot at the crowd, killing at least 12 people. Many were injured and now hospitalized. Because of this man, the premiere showing in Paris has been cancelled. Going to the movies will never be the same for a lot of US citizens.

What are your thoughts on an event like this? Do you think it's a coincidence that it happened near Columbine? ([link]
Do you think this will change how we attend movies? I'd like to know.
Personally, now that I think about it, I'm surprised nothing like this has happened before in a theater. We see things like this happen IN a movie, but not in real life. I'm afraid people will copy this man and try to do this themselves. I sure hope not, but I don't want to take the risk. I think I'll be watching all of my movies at home from now on. :C
