The Batman massacre: Yes and no
The Kansas City Star
The early Friday shootings in Aurora, Colo., during the Batman sequel “The Dark Knight Rises” killed 12 people and injured at least 59 more.
Herewith a short list of the potential outcomes of this massacre:
It will not lead to stricter gun laws. Too bad. But that’s what all the facts indicate right now, stripped of emotion.
It will force AMC and other movie theater operators, movie fans and police to be on heightened alert in the days ahead.
It will not stop the glorifying of violence in movies or television.
It will be dissected by the right and the left for any kind of political messages. ABC News has already gone down this rat hole.
