Moviegoer Jason Truitt says he won't let the tragedy of Friday morning's shooting deter him from seeing the highly anticipated Batman movie "The Dark Night Rises".
"You still have to live life. I mean, you can get hurt anywhere nowadays. You can't let that frighten you to stay home and not enjoy life," said Truitt.
Police say 24-year-old James Holmes used several weapons, including an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, to kill 12 people and wound 70 others. It's an assault rifle that from 1994 to 2004 was illegal.
"If they ban a weapon, this is going to be the first one they ban," said Jackie Sizemore of Backwoods Outdoors.
Sizemore says this rifle packs quite a punch and this drum attachment can hold hundreds of bullets.
"AR-15's are tactical type weapons. They have high capacity clips. You can get 100 round clips or 30 round clips," said Sizemore.
Even though there's no effort in Washington to reinstitute the ban, Sizemore says the AR-15 is flying off his shelves and out of stores all around Georgia, for what he calls political reasons.
"Well they're (gun buyers) scared they're (government) going to be the ones that are banned. They're scarred they're going to pull the plug on them where you can't get them anymore," said Sizemore.
"I'm very saddened for the things that happened and for the families," said Truitt.
Truitt says he won't fear for his safety, Friday night, at the theater.
"I don't see that happening here, but I imagine in Colorado, they didn't think that would happen there either. But I guess it can happen anywhere," said Truitt.
He hopes no one tries to pull a copycat crime.
Carmike sent a press release, Friday, asking moviegoers not to bring back packs or guns.
