I hope that everyone realizes that this guy was just spraying rounds into the crowd. If you have ever fired after donning a protective mask you already know that it nearly impossible to aim.
As far as you guys who have said what you would do, I'm glad. Personally, I think if I had heard the pins pop on the grenades (I have heard no less than three interviewees state that they heard the noise and knew what they were. I'm sure most people did not know. It is a sound that a soldier will never forget), carrying or not, I would have pushed my wife out of her seat into the floor in front of our seats and laid on top of her. If armed I would have probably then pulled my weapon and hoped the guy didn't see me, once I realize that they were smoke or gas grenades, and not frags. I would not have been looking for him.
Call that what you wish. If he had stopped at the end of the aisle in front of me, I would have put some .45 rounds center mass if possible.
Though it would probably be different if I had been alone, I would not have been alone at the theater. Of course all is conjecture, I would not have been at a midnight showing anyway, it is hard enough for us to stay awake during the matinee.
God bless the wounded and the victims' families.
