Out of the Blue

MrsBlue is home from work today, which should have provided a perfect opportunity to continue the discussion of whether to pop an air conditioner into one of the windows in the living room. That is, of course, if it wasn't for the rainstorm that has taken the local temperature down to 66F at the moment, which I'm pretty sure is not going to help my argument. As usual, the key to life is timing.

I love the comments from the gun nuts saying nothing like this would occur if everyone else was armed. Oh yeah, that's exactly what I want in a dark theater of panicked people running around, everyone whipping out Glocks and shooting at anything that moves. Yeah, I could see how that'd work out well for everyone.

I guess the TSA will now be coming to America's theaters, theme parks and school next.

And of course then they have to go after the religious angle, 'Why did this happen?' Um, maybe because some people just snap. None of us are that far off from it. That's all insanity is, just saying yes to the wrong impulse. All it takes is the right set of conditions before someone goes looney tunes.

The guy's mom knew he was a nutcase with a fixation on violence for some time now. You want a reason? Ask her. All the other media hype is just that.

As for guns, it's entirely possible that there weren't any others in the theater. The service people there have been banned from carrying during leave by our current President. OTOH if you want several documented instances of concealed carry holders stopping shootings it won't take long to find them. Nothing this big stopped yet though because thankfully it doesn't happen all that often.

Anyhow, all of us that got in a car today had a much better chance of dying horribly in traffic than running into a homicidal maniac, so I'm not going to worry too much about this unless it happens a lot more often.
