    Every time I go to a big event or to the movies out to the theme park here in my hometown etc I always look to see where could the closest exit be etc etc... because the fact of there being a shooter is high etc even going to school I always tried to get a plan on what I’d do if a shooter came etc. it’s the sad realization... that a lot of people still support anyone getting a gun that is used to harm people... it’s sad it’s scary I do believe in the right to bare arms but only when we know the person is right etc etc

    If they’re not going to ban guns, make them harder to get. Look at Canada, not saying it’s violence free but it’s quite hard to get your hands on a gun here, they check your criminal record.

    My ant was going to go to that exact movie showing but did not go because she fell asleep before it started. Thank god she did not go.

    I was in the Military thousands of miles away when I saw what had happened in the news. My State and City was blown up for the country to see only it was showing everyone this.

    I remember seeing this on the news. i still think about it every time i go to the movies, I look at the exits, and my heart jumps a little when someone walks in during the middle of the movie. It’s been years. And still think about it.

    I lived in Colorado for fifteen years, before moving out in 2016. I remember I would go constantly to the Century 16 theatre. I have so many memories watching with my family and friends. Chronicle, The Devil inside, etc. I remember waking up and hearing about the shooting and it was so sad to know such a place close to home like that was hit. Then, it had hit me that my older brother had wanted to go with his best friend to go see the Dark Knight, but last minute he caught a cold and my brother's best friend went alone. (His best friend is okay, thank god. Just minor injuries) I remember going to school literally the next day and people were exclaiming about how they'd never go back there again and I remember when they'd finally reopened for business and there was a movie I wanted to see and my mother had absolutely refused to let us go near that theater again. Just some recounting of a former Coloradoan of that day. Scares to me to think about that I could've lost my brother if he hadn't gotten sick.

    I have a personal rule that I won't see a movie that's been in theaters for less than 2 weeks. Only once since US mass shootings became commonplace did I see a movie on opening day and that was in 2014 when Jersey Boys came out.

    I live in Colorado and I still go to the mall right next to Century 16. Sometimes I would look at the theater and remember about the shooting and how a shooting can happen anytime anywhere

    What really bothers me is that the person who committed this crime only got life in prison...he was convicted of 24 murders and 140 attempted murders and still got out of the death penalty...

    Only the most disgusting scum of the Earth could do this. This is truly the work of Satan. I can’t think of any other reason that could explain how certain people could do such reprehensible things with what it seems to be not a single feeling of regret afterwards.

    Any time I go somewhere in public, I'm always looking for escape routes and working out safety scenarios in my mind.

    The sad part is there’s nothing you can do stop someone doing evil. You can be alert, train, and carry, but there’s no stopping what you don’t know.
    I went to a public school with armed guards and I hope my kids do too.

    When I was 4, the Columbine shooting happened; which was a block away from my house. When I was 19 (I think), the aurora shooting happened, I was a block away. When I was 20, the Arapaho shooting happened; I was driving by as it happened. When I was 24, I was robbed gunpoint at the bank I’ve worked at..
    I’ve dodged a few bullets. Much respect to everyone who has gone through this.

    For me, its really difficult being in a school close to a shooting range. If we go outside we can hear the shots of semiautomatic guns. It’s really stressful because I always have remind myself every time I do hear it, that I’m safe and not to worry, but it is detrimental to constantly have to soothe myself from fight or flight every time we’re outside for a sport or gym or even just for class. It sucks.

    I pray that any person that is even thinking about doing something as scary as this gets help. I’m very sympathetic when it comes to active shooters or just “deranged “ folks because I could never imagine to do that I could never have that much hate towards people or feel like I was owed something.... I hope you get help and try to get people like you help....

    Back when mass shootings were not an everyday occurrence This is devastating because it happened and because it is common place in our world now.

    Can’t imagine the terror! I too had a terrifying experience the time “It” premiered. The movie was just starting but this man entered a fully seated movie theatre with a rolling suitcase and he just stood there and eventually looked up at everyone sitting and that’s when I thought HES GOING TO START SHOOTING so me and the other 3 people I was with ran the hell out! & we told staff what happened and they got him out of the theatre. We missed our movie but I’d rather miss out on a movie than my life

    so sorry this happened to them. i'm always afraid of this. i saw The Joker and someone with a backpack walked in during the chaotic scene at the end and went to the back of the theater and my heart was racing the whole time. this was after i had to evacuate a theater for a terror alert so it's always in the back of my mind.
