Re: US Gunman Opens Fire at Batman Screening in Denver, Colorado.

I guess it's the Brits that understand the Brit way and the Yanks that understand the Yank way I don't know one Brit who would prefer to have a gun and apparently not one Yank would like to have their 'firepower' taken away.

Don't forget the accidents that happen with guns when cunts leave them out for their kiddiwinks to play with... that fo' sho' don't happen here. At worst, the kids get scolded with a hot cuppa by accident!

We're happy without guns, you fuckin' love 'em. End of

Re: US Gunman Opens Fire at Batman Screening in Denver, Colorado.

I think some people should hold back on stating what everyone else in "their" country thinks.
For example, I would quite like not to be treated like a mindless child by my fucking nanny-state government from time to time and to make my own decisions on matters. And I damn well know there are more people who feel the same way.

Well said. The irony in all this is that the reason we are passionate about our guns today is because of what you Brits did a couple hundred years ago! So I have to thank you guys for all my cool toys. However, here too we are moving in your nanny state direction. There is a rapidly growing segment of the population who doesn't work and thinks I should support them.

I don't consider myself a flag waving, gun toting typical American at ALL. I understand both points very well seeing as how I've lived and experienced both cultures. I've said it before but if you just up and decided to take guns away from Americans after decades of having them, a shitstorm will ensue. Most Brits haven't grown up around guns so they see them as unnessacary. Which is true over there for the most part.

As for the kid thing, I've also addressed that. Responsible gun ownership and knowledge is paramount. I grew up in a multiple gun household but they were always locked up, unloaded (except for the .45) and the ammo was stored in a separate locked box. I'm still here because my parents taught me not to fuck with them because they will kill your ass. Its not the guns fault, it's the moron ass gun owner/parents who don't keep shit locked up. I mean, you wouldn't leave a fucking meat cleaver lying around in a child's reach would you? Hopefully not.

A funny story, I was shopping in Manchester one time and a guy with a gun had been reported. Pandemonium ensued and people shat themselves. Meanwhile, my mom, sister and I were just going about our merry way. We're not stopping what we're doing unless we hear gunshots. I heard someone say "Oh they're Yanks, they were probably born with a gun in hand" when we passed by, not being bothered.

Guilty Verdict for James Holmes in Aurora Attack

Quote:
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Inside Courtroom 201, the families of the dead and wounded watched in taut silence on Thursday afternoon as the judge shuffled through a stack of verdict forms containing the fate of James E. Holmes, the gunman who slipped into a Colorado movie theater in 2012 and opened fire on their sons and daughters, friends and loved ones.

As the judge began reading the verdicts — guilty, guilty, guilty — repeated 165 times over an entire hour, for each count of murder and attempted murder, the families sobbed quietly, clutched one another’s shoulders and nodded along to a recitation of guilt that many had been waiting nearly three years to hear.

Sandy Phillips wrapped herself tightly in the green scarf that her slain daughter, Jessica Ghawi, had loved. A father whose son was killed patted the arm of Joshua Nowlan, who was wounded and now walks with a cane.

As each name of the 12 people killed and 70 wounded was read, and read again — prosecutors filed two charges per victim — the families looked to the corner of the public gallery and gave one another a quiet nod or an arm squeeze.

After an emotional 10-week trial, one of the longest and most complex in this state’s history, it took a jury of nine women and three men about 12 hours of deliberation over two days to convict Mr. Holmes on all counts. He now faces a lengthy sentencing process in which prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

The jury’s verdict roundly rejected arguments from his defense lawyers that he had had a psychotic break and was legally insane when he carried out the massacre inside the Century 16 theater in suburban Aurora, Colo., on July 20, 2012. His lawyers argued he was not in control of his thoughts or actions, but prosecutors said Mr. Holmes, despite being mentally ill, had plotted the shootings with calculation and knew what he wanted to accomplish when he started firing into the crowd.

As Judge Carlos Samour Jr. read the 165 counts against Mr. Holmes, the defendant stood silently between his lawyers, staring straight ahead, with his hands tucked into the pockets of a pair of khaki-colored pants. He did not glance at his parents sitting two rows behind. When the hourlong recitation of the verdicts was done, he sat down and lightly swiveled in his chair.

Coming within days of the Aurora shooting’s third anniversary, the guilty verdict ends one phase of a grueling legal saga, but another one is set to begin.

As the district attorney in suburban Arapahoe County argues for the death penalty, the jury will begin weighing the toll and nature of Mr. Holmes’s actions to decide whether to send him to prison for life or to Colorado’s death row.

The sentencing phase is expected to take weeks. It could feature more wrenching statements from survivors and families of the victims, as well as testimony from defense witnesses discussing the role that mental illness played in propelling Mr. Holmes toward the movie theater that night.

“Look for the defense to emphasize the fact that James Holmes truly suffers from a serious mental illness, that he is in dire need of ongoing treatment and that while incarcerated he does not pose any real threat or danger to society,” said Steven Pitt, a forensic psychiatrist in Arizona who has followed the case closely. “Look for the prosecution to try and minimize the extent of Holmes’s mental illness and instead depict him as someone who is depraved and rotten to the core.”


The district attorney, George Brauchler, has said that for Mr. Holmes, “justice is death.”

Prosecutors argued that Mr. Holmes plotted the shootings for several weeks, deliberately and meticulously, because he had lost his first and only girlfriend, had dropped out of his graduate program and had generally lost his purpose in life.

To that end, prosecutors brought in professors and classmates who described Mr. Holmes’s struggles as a first-year graduate student in the neuroscience program at the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado. Mr. Holmes quit the program in June 2012, after he failed important oral exams, and declined the chance to retake them.

Prosecutors showcased pages from a spiral notebook in which Mr. Holmes inscribed murderous fantasies and nonsensical theories about life and death, and where he plotted what kind of attack to carry out, and how and where to do it.

But where prosecutors saw calculation, the defense saw “a whole lot of crazy.”

There's no question about it: ol' Jimmy's gonna get his turn on the table.

Hopefully he lives long enough to put out a book about the whole thing.
