I disagree, you may want to run away to save your life, doesn't mean other men who happened to have had a gun would act the same way. There are brave men out there willing to act to save others, possible endangering their own lives.
Just what does a "well trained man" mean? It's not that difficult to aim a weapon. We expect 17, 18, 19 year olds to go to war, yet grown up men are supposed to not be able to do what they do? I think there are men who would act to save lives, maybe you're not o ne of them, OK.
I could care less what the police say, they want to control everything. That thinking led to 9/11.
I suppose if you had been in the Aurora theater at that time you would have had your gun and shone a flashlight at the shooter in order to bypass the body armor and get a clean head shot. All you would have accomplished is give him a primary target to shoot at as soon as he saw the beam from your light.

Even with the body armor a shot to the chest from a .45 would have knocked him on his ass and stopped the shooting long enough to put a foot on his throat.

Right. You would have probably had the forethought to bring in your night vision goggles. lol

He was wearing a throat protector and special armor on his legs as well.

Well, unless they're wearing tactical headgear and neck protection like Holmes was.

In a situation like that, not even cops with years of training attempt headshots. That's why police officers dismiss the whole "why didn't you shoot him in the leg or arm" argument.

You Creationists fail because you always talk about liberal politics instead of atheism, which is an apolitical stance.

If you go back to your lies / propoganda and edit out the part where all your enemies are liberals and commies, people *might* actually believe your insane religious rants against peaceful atheists.

Why don't you just tell us.
I provided a link to the answer in my next post, but I wanted people to think about it before being surprised by the answer. Self-knowledge is a good thing, and awareness of our assumptions and biases sometimes helps people to rethink some of their beliefs. If I didn't already know, for instance, I would have guessed that it was a religious nut who felt that the Unitarian Universalists' way of life was an offense to God, and I would have been wrong.

What comprises "critical thinking" from your point of view? What are its elements? I suspect we have very different ideas about this.

Oh, we will. Black people, too. And Asians and the various native populations around the globe, some sooner than others, but all of us eventually. Even taxes are not as certain as death.

I was, of course, thinking of individual deaths, not the annihilations of entire subpopulations or the species as a whole. Most of us don't live much more than 85 years and none of us live to be 150. I suspect that our species will be extinct long before the sun changes much.

Our species barring should we self destroy ourselves in a religious rage, will most likely continue to evolve several times before the sun dies. We are already vastly different. Say an NBA team walked into ancient Jerusalem what the people would say!

Not necessarily. Also, it certainly won't allow you to put a foot on his throat without him blowing your balls through the back of your head.

Second, let's say you are carring a .45, and he ISN'T wearing body armour. Gues what happens when you shoot him? It goes right through him.... In a crowded theater....

I know, I know, you are loaded with hollow points, and they won't pass through him. Well, depending on how close, and where you hit him, there is the very distinct probablitity that it will still go through him. Also, if you are using hollow points, and he is wearing body armour, the bullet almost certainly won't knock him down.

Forget the crap you see in the movies. In the real world, that kind of thinking just makes things worse.

thank your lucky stars it wasn't your loved ones among the 12 dead, or the 58 wounded. Apparently just about everyone on here is a spineless , cowardly weasel who would just lay there and be shot.
Well, not me,thank you very much.
These cowards count on their victims being unarmed sheep.
Everyone should thank their lucky stars that an uninform, wild west, Rambo wanna-be like you wasn't in that theater. The body count would have been much higher due to your lack of experience,lack of common sense, and knowledge of the real world.

Pushing the biggest, fattest person in the room into falling on him ought to at least slow him down long enough for most of the other patrons to flee the building. >:)
