The fatalities would have been higher and the nut job would have still walked away without a scratch....Or are you planning on packing night vision goggles and a gas mask right along with your concealed to carry fire arm.....whose bullets would have bounced right off his vest and other gear...or do you load it with cop killers?!?!?!?!?!

Everyone has the right to own a gun for sportsman hunting and for protecting your home and family. No one has the right to own an assault rifle that holds hundreds of rounds of ammo, outside of the military and law enforcement. The only hunting those guns are used for is hunting humans...

There are already restrictions on firearms, including capacity, full auto, etc. why do we need more restrictions?

I need to amend this statement. The Constitution does not distinguish between guns. BUT NO ONE NEEDS an assault rifle that holds hundreds of rounds of ammo, outside of the military and law enforcement. These guns are made to hunt down and kill human prey...

What purpose is there for an assault rifle like was used in Colorado, outside of murder and mayhem? Give me a legitimate sportsman use for it? I am willing to listen to your defense of this weapon, plead your case....

The issue is, where does it stop? Read about how England got to their near total ban on private gun ownership. It wasn't a sudden overnight thing, it was a gradual tightening of rules, new laws, changing definitions, until gradually, the private citizen could not legally own a firearm.
If it starts with 'assault rifles', then what's next? Shotguns over a certain capacity? Pistols over a certain caliber? Where does it stop? What is the definition of an assault rifle? 30 rounds? 20 rounds?, then 10, 5, 3, then what?
Its a slippery slope. Where does it stop when it starts?

Oh yeah, that is exactly what we want, gun battles in the middle of a dark theater full of women and children.....Then just how many deaths would there be??? A hell of a lot more than 12! And just how do you think those movie goers with Concealed weapons license and their fire arms on them were going to kill that nut job? Have you not been listening to the news???? He was in full gear... vest, legs, helmet, throat, groin protection, gas mask...So he was bullet proof and the gas wasn't bothering him...So there would have been half blinded (from the tear gas) armed citizens firing in the dark at anything that moved....Geeeeeeeez grow some brain cells...!!!!
Sure he was in full gear. You know why?. Even though he knew he was in a gun free zone, the coward didn't want to get hurt.

Bullet proof or not, that maggot would not have hung around after getting hit a couple of times. As for tear gas, it's overrated.
Anyone who went through the gas chamber at Parris Island or San Diego
MCRD, can tell you that you can still function up to a point.

We can all turn into sheep and just let things like this happen, or fight back. Just the thought of getting into a firefight with potential
victims is enough to deter a coward like Holmes.

I believe that the numbers would be higher if we did not have concealed carry.

I have a CHL even though I don't carry most of the time. I really don't see a need to carry except for fishing in somewhat isolated spots. Of
course I do keep a couple of my favorite toys handy for giving out
door prizes to home invaders.

Now instead of gun crime, Great Britain has turned into the baseball bat and knife murder capitol of the world.

The maniac converted his weapon into full auto.Illegal.But easy to do.assault rifles typically carry twenty to thirty rounds depending on the magazine.Glocks carry around 17 rounds or more depending on caliber.

The rate of gun crime has gone up since the ended private gun ownership. Of course, the gun control nuts just ignore that little inconvienient truth.

Yep, looks like Obama is doing what he knows best. Overspending. You want
someone like this in charge, but judging
by your post I can see why. LOL

Obama effort spends more in June than it takes in
