Catastrophe in Colorado!

By Anant Mathur (July 20, 2012)

As you've no doubt heard by now, last night during the midnight premiere showing of The Dark Knight Rises at the Century 16 cinema in Aurora, Colorado, a gunman wearing a gas mask opened fire inside the theater. Twelve people were killed and many others injured in this needless shooting by a 24 year old psychopath. It's sad that we live in a dangerous world where any lunatic can come into a place where people have come to enjoy and be entertained and do such a horrible thing.

I hope and pray that god gives strength to the families of the people killed and help the injured in dealing with this unfortunate incident.

Steps should now be taken to prevent this from ever happening in the future. Whether that means putting metal detectors in movie theaters or checking people as then go in that remains to be seen. I know in India they check everyone before letting them into cinema halls to see films. Perhaps the reality of the world today means we need to do the same in North America.
