Since the media just blamed Gander Mountain and Bass Pro Shops for selling the shooter the guns we know what narrative this feeds.—

Guns don’t kill people. Apparently Bass Pro Shops and Gander Mountain kill people. At least, that’s what one would think based on all the hate being directed at the retailers after it was announced that they sold weapons to Aurora shooting suspect James Holmes.
The movie cinema shooter bought his guns at a Bass Pro shop. I went to one in Texas, it made me feel sick. Fix this, America.—

This clown bought weapons at bass pro shop. Ban automatic weapons for frig sakes and fuk off with your constitutional bs—

While the target of online anger has moved from the stores to the Constitution to the state of Colorado, some suggest redirecting it somewhere else.
Food for thought: maybe comics, movies, Bass Pro Shop, pricey popcorn and the internet are not to blame. Maybe the shooter is.—
