Police: Man plotted attack during 'Twilight' movie

Nov 17, 2012 | Posted by: Mannnington2010 | Full story: movies.yahoo.com

A southwest Missouri man accused of plotting to shoot up a movie theater during the new "Twilight" film was charged Friday after his mother contacted police, telling them she worried her son had purchased weapons similar to those used during the fatal Colorado theater shooting.

There have been an alarming number of mass murders in this country over the past year. I think it is time that we start to talk about gun laws. Most of the mass murders happen with legally purchased weapons. Maybe, if we would have restricted access to these military style weapons to people that have had proper training, then maybe some of the people murdered this year would still be alive. I know the arguments that I will get, especially that only criminals will have the guns. Some quick points on that. One, if all assault weapons are illegal, then where would a mentally ill person even begin looking for a gun to do a mass shooting? Second, let's say he does find someone willing to sell him this gun. If anyone he knows finds out he has an illegal assault weapon, then someone might do what this Missouri man's mother did and turn him in. The proliferation of assault weapons is one of the biggest dilemmas facing the country. We are all in danger. This could be the Morgantown theater on day.

These wacks love the publicity. Instant fame is the goal. This kid is all over the news. Hang and torture a few of these fame hunters in public so the rest know that there will be a quite painful repercussion for their actions. I'm talking skinning and mutilating as a means of dissuasion. Lets try it just once on one of these jerks, and see if any are still brave and emotional enough to try something like this. Boy from Colorado still alive? Hang him.

I think an assault weapons ban and some hangings might just stop the next attack.

It's not the gun laws that are the problem...it's the consequences for people committing crimes...laws or no laws people will always get guns if they want them...if the consequences were something terrible I think u might change a few minds

If there were no firearms, he would have just tried to Molotov Cocktail the place. Guess we had better ban gasoline, bottles, and rags.

You are so dumb. There is no comparison between guns that can fire as fast as you can pull a trigger and a molotov cocktail. Why is it so important to you that we not ban these weapons? These are weapons that the founders of the country could never have imagined. I really don't know why you are so loyal to the gun companies. It's sad.

Well "mannington2010" I have a SKS rifle, does that mean that I am going to flip out and start killing people? Before you ponder that thought at all, I can tell you that it does not. Perhaps we do need some stiffer gun laws,(a 3 to 5 day waiting period, better background checks, ect) but but taking firearms away from upstanding people is not the answer. I also belive that we need better laws after an offense has been made, I.E., 10 years in jail even if you just brandish a gun during a fight, robbery, ect. I am also a liberal but unlike you I do understand that "guns don't kill people, people kill people"

Why do you need that gun? You don't. Maybe you won't kill people, but some crazy people do. I would rather neither of you have the weapon. I think that maybe most of the country would agree. Your opinion means nothing.

88 people were killed in a New York disco with a gallon. The worst mass murder in the country until the Oklahoma bombing. Google it you anti gun nuts.

IT was called the happy land fire. 1 gallon of gas killed 87 people. That is probably more effecient than an assault rifle. Where there a will theres a way. And lets not forget 9/11 I dont think them boys had assault weapons..

Why do you think you have a right to own these weapons? Why would you ever need them? Thank the Lord that you Republican neo nazis aren't running the show anymore. People are sick to death of shootings. I think it is truly a sad state of affairs when you have people standing up for mass murderers rights to own militarized weapons just because they like shooting pop cans with them. You cling to your gun, buddy. We will see how long you can legally own it. The rest of the world isn't waiting for you fools to grow brains. You gun nuts are weak. You are scared little girls worried about the boogeyman lurking around the corner. Except, of course, you have a weapon with a high capacity magazine and ammunition made kill people. Everyday 24 Americans are killed on purpose by a gun. Only 42 people were killed by guns in the UK in 2008. You people are callous. You care not one ounce for the people in this country. the ones who are dying daily so that you can own weapons you dont need. So, one last time, why should you be allowed to own these weapons?

Well, most sane people want these assault weapons off the street. Your opinion doesn't matter. Hopefully, we can get a ban on them. Remember, you silly rednecks, that we used to have an assault weapons ban. It wasn't the end of the world. It won't be this time either. I just hope that you all willingly hand over your weapons. I believe that if someone loves assault weapons, then they probably don't care for human life. It makes the situation even scarier for law enforcement.

I don't want dimwitted psychos running around my country with these dangerous weapons. Out of the richest countries in the world the United States has the highest murder rate with guns. You single minded gun loving xenophobes are just looking for an excuse to pop someone. If these guns are not restricted, then I am afraid one of you crazy toothless illiterate republican NRA-worshiping bigots is going to loose your shit all over the people of Fairmont, or Morgantown, or Grafton, or Mannington. I know at least 5 people with these dangerous weapons. I am sure you know more. The proliferation of militarized weapons into the hands of untrained wannabe militia men is the biggest threat facing the country. How many people die in America because of gun violence? In 2009 it was 11,493. That is out of 16,799 murders. How many Americans die from terrorist attacks? In 2011, it was 17. That is across the globe. Why do we spend billions of dollars "protecting" ourselves from a nonexistent threat, while at the same time ignoring if not supporting the right to own weapons used for combat. You are living in a dream, and you will wake up one day to find an army of rational people asking for you guns. What will you do to those people if that happens? Will you respect the wishes of a majority?

Right, the only thing that matters is your gun. You are disgusting. I hope they take all your guns away. I know that won't happen. I do wish it would though.

Seriously people these are the people buying assault rifles. You help to prove my point by acting like a fool. You have no reason to be allowed to own these weapons. You rednecks have this god complex. You think that if something bad happens you can stop it with your guns. More people die in accidental shootings, many children, than are killed in self defense scenarios. You need to get a grip on reality. I can't wait till you have to hand over your weapons. What a day, glorious day, that will be. Hold on to it while you can. Obama's going to own it in 3 years.
