I think this shooting was planned. It just so happens that the UN is debating the UN small arms treaty now...this week.—

As Twitchy reported earlier, this morning, comedian D.L. Hughley used the Aurora shooting as inspiration for a ridiculous rant on the necessity of gun control.
Some conspiracy theorists on the right are taking things to the other extreme, claiming that the shooting will lead to global gun control by the UN:
There’s a time and place to critique the UN for its overreach; these aren’t it. The UN may be guilty of a great deal, but to suggest that it is somehow behind or connected to the Aurora shooting is not only counterproductive, it’s dangerous. And it belittles the real tragedy of what’s happened.
