A COUPLE UPDATES ABOUT THE DARK KNIGHT SHOOTING [VIDEO/STORIES]

We have a couple different thing about the DARK NIGHT SHOOTING that went down earlier this month.  These updates have a lot of DOUCHINESS going on.  An interview makes a dude seem like a GIANT pussy.  The director of the movie The Mask is a complete boner.  There are some LAWSUITS in relation to the shooting.  AND – was the plans mailed to someone before it all went down?!

A new detail has emerged in the “Dark Knight Rises” shooting.  On Monday, a package from the shooter arrived at the University of Colorado.  That’s where he’d been in a PhD neuroscience program, until dropping out on July 10th.  And the package contained a notebook describing how he wanted to SHOOT people . . . with stick-figure drawings of a gunman killing victims. But some of the reports about the package are a little confusing.  One says it was addressed to a campus psychiatrist, with the shooter’s name and return address . . . And worse, that it was actually mailed a WEEK BEFORE the attack, but sat unopened in a campus mailroom until THIS week.  Which would be a HUGE problem for the University. But again, the details are unconfirmed.  It’s not clear that the shooter was even seeing a psychiatrist.  CNN says the package just got there this Monday, and was addressed to a professor.

SILVER LINING FROM ALL THIS? Children’s Hospital Colorado is trying to ease the pain as best they can.  The medical bills of the victims from The Dark Knight Rises tragedy in Aurora, Colo., who are patients in the hospital will be covered. “Children’s Hospital Colorado’s mission has always been to provide the very best care possible to all children who need it regardless of their ability to pay,” they told E! News in a statement. “This mission supports the care we have been providing to both child and adult victims of last week’s shooting incident.”

After the “Dark Knight Rises” shooting, the gun control debate has fallen along typical lines . . . Gun control advocates cited it as a prime example of the need for more gun control.  While pro-gun people cited it as an example of THEIR position . . . with less gun control, other people in the theater would’ve been armed and shot the guy. It appears the people of Colorado have sided with the latter. Since the shooting, there’s been a MASSIVE SPIKE in people applying for background checks to purchase guns in Colorado.  There’s been a 43% increase . . . which has made this the busiest gun sales week in Colorado all year. That’s not the first time that’s happened, either.  After the shooting in Arizona last year, and after the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, both of those states also saw double-digit jumps in background checks and gun sales.

At least one victim of the Aurora, Colo., movie theater massacre has indicated he intends to sue, claiming that the theater failed to adequately protect its audience. Torrence Brown, 18, is being represented by attorney Donald Karpel, a source confirmed, but was not authorized to discuss the details of the case. In addition to the theater, Brown plans to sue the Hollywood producers of the Batman film, as well as those believed to have treated, and perhaps medicated,shooting suspect James Holmes prior to the shooting . Brown was in Century 16 Theatre last Friday night, attending a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” when Holmes allegedly opened fire, killing 12 and wounding 58. Brown was not injured, but claims to suffer from trauma. Brown may be the first victim to seek monetary damages by filing a civil lawsuit, but he likely won’t be the last. Legal experts, however, caution that Brown and other victims looking to sue may find civil liability cases difficult to win. A suit against Warner Brothers, the production company behind the “Dark Knight Rises,” would prove to be difficult.
