I find it hard to believe that someone who orchestrated such an attack has such severe mental illness that he cannot stand for trial He has a 'serious' mental illness. He's terrified of going to prison. Most relevant of all is the fact that the Huffington Post and New York Times are the worst offenders since they never tell the TRUTH but always deflect from Facts and Reality.

Have intelligent Americans noticed that in almost every case when a Muslim SLAUGHTERS Kuffar/ Non Muslims, their lawyers bring up the INSANITY defense? Yet no one from the prosecution has the backbone to point out that the COMMON Denominator in all these cases is the QURAN? And yet Colorado deems him eligible to own as many guns as he wants

Right wing gun nuts continue to push for easier access to guns and this is what happens! The gun (murder) industry doesn't care if psychopaths or the mentally ill get guns. Just about their sales. I fully support a repeal of the second amendment! Details of proof should be required before judgement. COMMON SENSE.

If he knows right from wrong he can be sentenced, it's wether its life in prison or mental facilities without parole or privileges that makes its a real punishment. Don't let the heart strings over rule justice. Of course!!! In other words, he is not responsible for his actions. The likes of him can execute innocent people in a well planned manner. When it comes to taking responsibility they are just sick people. No doctor caught it but his lawyer did. Well played! Colorado

GOP would spit on their mothers grave if it put money in their pocket. But he can have a gun? We are a disaster.
