Century Aurora 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colo.

As the country mourns the tragic shooting in a movie theater early Friday, July 20, 2012, in Aurora, Colo., we’re also trying to think it through. Twelve people died and 58 were injured in the shooting at a midnight showing of the new Batman movie; a lone gunman is suspected.

We’re all talking about it. Many of us who are writers are setting fingers to keyboard and pens to paper.

We want to understand it.

Members of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists who are publishing columns and blogs about any aspect of the cinema attack are invited to share them here.

This post will be updated with links as they are sent to NSNC Online Media Director Ben Pollock, who will verify and test the addresses. Please send suggestions via the Contact Form.

Only NSNC members in good standing will be linked.

We do, of course, encourage comments by everyone. Use the comment form below.

    Ben — Thanks for including mine here. Although it was written days before the shooting, it ran two days after it, and seemed to resonate with people who were still reeling from the news out of Colorado, particularly once the pictures of the victims began to be released.
