Aurora CO, Shootings

If you haven't heard the news yet, 12 people have been killed and I think 30 injured. A lone gunman burst through the emergency exit and threw tear gas before opening fire.

I'm just in shock right now. Thats a movie theater that I go to all the time with friends. Its across from the mall I hang out at. Its just unreal. I have NO idea if any of my friends or family were there.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

I just heard about that. Truly tragic. My heart goes out to all the family and friends of the victims.

I can't help but think, if there would of been at least one responsible person who was carrying a gun in that theater, he or she could of ended that nightmare before so many people where killed and wounded.

Such a horrible thing to happen. You go to the movies to get away from it all and be entertained. My prayers go out to all those that were killed and injured in such a senseless crime.

Such a disgusting, horrible, and senseless tragedy. I hope all of your friends and family are safe MrV.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
