Dave Mustaine's claim that President Obama is responsible for the Aurora, Colo., shooting tragedy last month are ridiculous, says victim Carli Richards.

Richards, one of the 70 people who was shot in the theater that night (and one of the 58 to survive it), hit back at Mustaine's conspiracy theory today.

After hearing that Mustaine said Obama staged the Aurora shooting to push an anti-gun agenda, Richards said the rocker likely just wants attention:

"Some people think the President is a good scapegoat but he didn't shoot me," she said.

"It’s obviously 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 extent the criminal justice system deems fit."

Speaking of the actual person responsible, Richards, 22, previously said she'd like Holmes to die a slow, painful death, as lethal injection is too humane.

What do you think: Death penalty for Holmes?

At a Tuesday, August 7 performance in Singapore, Mustaine told the crowd, "Back in my country, my president ... he's trying to pass a gun ban."

"So he's staging all of these murders, like the 'Fast And Furious' thing down at the border ... Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there ... and the beautiful people at the [Wisconsin Sikh temple]."

The rocker continued, "I don't know where I'm gonna live if America keeps going the way it's going because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."

One major hole in Mustaine's "theory" (besides basic facts): Obama has not made any push for gun control in the wake of these tragedies.
