    Isn’t this a gun free zone? It just doesn’t make sense. How did a gunman get inside a gun free zone? Why weren’t there any armed citizens around to stop them? The insanity!

        So it’s okay for progressive to use tragedies like the Newtown tragedy for political purposes but when someone who does not believe in the progressive agenda does it it’s wrong? Hypocritical much?

      Careful there, Brando. Seems an armed citizen flew off the handle and killed someone recently in another movie theater, all over texting during the previews. Said citizen was an ex cop, too, and was carrying in a weapon-free zone.

        You say armed citizen and ex cop – was he or she in fact legally allowed to carry even outside that theater?

        Now this is predicated on the assumption that your story is factual and the events took place as you described. Could you either link to this story you refer to or give us a place/date/name to research this for ourselves? Thanks.

      This is quite possibly the most idiotic comment I’ve seen on here… Yes indeed thing happen in Richmond and because of that Richmond gets a bad rap but you act like nothing happens anywhere else but there are killings, thefts, violent crimes in Henrico, Chesterfield, Goochland…and all over the globe.

      But yes, let’s put a wall around Richmond because that’s where all of the savages are…/sarcasm
