Now onto something important.
As you may have heard, at the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado there was a mass shooting and 12 people were killed and 59 were injured by a lone gunman who told police that he was the Joker. Now as we go forward we’re gonna hear people blame comics and movies for the violence and even blame a gun ownership laws or a lack Christian values in our country for what happened early this morning. Let me just clarify something right now: all those reasons are bullshit. There’s a saying (from a movie I believe) which states: “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.” and that is very true. This act was done by one person and one person alone. Don’t blame other people or industries. People were killing people way before comics and movies were around.
The question is what should we do now? If you were planning to go see The Dark Knight Rises like I am, go see it! Don’t let the actions of one individual stop you. If you would like to help the victims go here to learn how. Also I hear that the Denver Comic-Con is working on ways to help the victims.
That brings this Classic Comic Review to end. Stay safe, stay positive and I hope you enjoy the film.Aurora, Batman, Classic Comic Review, Colorado, columns, Comicmaniacs, DC Comics, Fanboybuzz, help, mass shooting, media, news, positive, Robin, The Dark Knight Rises
