    It would be great if someone had been able to stop the shooter quickly. Realistically it could have been very difficult in a dark crowded theater to pick him off quickly without endangering others, and the police could also mistake an armed intended hero as a criminal as well. It’s just not as simple as it may appear at first. Imagine if the hero had accidentally shot and injured or killed other innocent people. Really the only safe way to take him down is if a few men could rush him from behind and take him to the ground. Anyway, I hope the killer is QUICKLY tried and executed. There is no excuse for this.
