    Can someone please explain to me why this isn't being labeled an act of terrorism? Some articles even explicitly say "there is no evidence to suggest this was an act of terrorism". How is this not terrorism? Not enough airplane involved or something?

    Terrorism is for politically motivated reasons.

    Guess they lacked weapons to defend themselves.

    Dood! If they had gun they could have defended themselves, maybe the deads would have. (probably not cause nobody knew wtf was going on, otherwise they would have skipped. )

    No, but if there was someone who was trained with a gun and was aware of his surroundings maybe instead of 14 dead there would have been 6 or 10. Hell, even if there was one less dead because someone was able to stop the gunman, that's a good enough reason for being able to legally carry guns.

    As has been stated, just because it causes terror doesn't make it terrorism. The term terrorism would connote that there was some sort of motive to incite terror and fear into people at large, rather the just for the sake of killing people at random.

    This is a really sad situation.

    Edit: What's the odds the shooter is a Forumfall player?

    I mean seriously, I could not imagine this shit happening. But if it were to happen and you were in the thick of it, what the fuck would you guys do? I am not a bad ass brawler or anything but, if I felt like there was an opportunity, I would try to take the guy down. I guess the key here would be to keep your composure and see whats actually happening, says all the people freaked out when the tear gas went off. Must be crazy when a wolf upsets the herd of sheep and there is a couple coherent people in the mix observing the chaos. I do not know many people that carry a concealed fire arm to the movie theater for protection, (not to say people don't)but obviously that would be an option if you have one, I don't. Although, if I keep seeing stories like this, I might have to get me some killin devices!
