Does anyone even understand the probability of another shooting happening at a separate showing of the Dark Knight Rises? Or even at an entirely different movie. How can you possibly have anxiety over something like that? Are you afraid to go to high school or college because of Columbine and Virginia Tech? I honestly don’t understand. It was a shooting. At least twenty shootings happen a year, mainly on school or college campuses. But fuck, are you freaking out about going to college? No, you’re probably not. In fact, you’re probably fucking excited to go to college. Most people are, it’s normal. Six shootings have happened this year alone. A fucking former student went back to his high school and randomly shot students. Are you afraid an alum from your high school is going to come back and randomly put a bullet through your head? No. That’s ridiculous. So is going to see, I don’t know, MIB3 and being in fear or your life throughout the entire thing. Or not enjoying the movie because you’re too busy keeping your eyes on the emergency exits. Or eyeing anyone with a bag because maybe, just maybe, they have a gun in it… You get the point. It is an unecessary burden to your life to be afraid that anywhere you go you could potentially be shot and killed. People die. Every day. It is a basic part of life. No matter what you do, whether it’s checking the mail or going to school, your life could end during it. Shit happens. But you know what? Life doesn’t come to a screeching halt when it does. Now please, for the love of God, go see a fucking movie and shut up.
