Ranting about anything else right now feels inappropriate to me so I'm just going to leave this here for now.
Currently available information tells us that at least 12 people were killed and as many as 71 were injured in last night's Colorado theater shooting.
The shooter was former medical student James Holmes. He used an AR-15 assault rifle, a Remington 870 shotgun, 2 Glock pistols, and tear gas during his assault on the theater. Holmes' apartment was also apparently booby-trapped according to the local police chief.
I have nothing more to add right now other than the not-surprising fact that members of the media and the usual suspects in the conservative blogosphere are embarrassing themselves and America while framing the situation. I certainly won't be joining them. The politics can wait for at least one day, for shit's sake.
You can discuss it here if you wish.
