Carli Richards, who sustained multiple gunshot wounds when James Holmes opened fire during a screening of “Dark Knight Rises” last month in Aurora, Colorado, has slammed MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine for suggesting that Barack Obama was responsible for the massacre.
After watching the footage of Mustaine blaming the current president for “staging” the Aurora shooting to push an anti-gun agenda (see video below), Richards told TMZ.com, “Some people think the President is a good scapegoat but he didn’t shoot me.”
She added, “It’s obviously kind of absurd and people who make up conspiracies just want attention.
“Everybody is emotional at this time and needs to blame somebody I guess. I don’t think they realize the consequences of not being responsible for your own actions and James Holmes needs to be held accountable for his, to whatever way the justice system deems fit.”
