The mass shooting at the Colorado movie theater is absolutely horrible. There is no other way to look at it.
I’m not going to even make any guesses why this guy did what he did, at this point no one knows but him.
The first thing that always happens though, people on the left, and maybe some on the right, immediately start talking gun control. I’ve heard people talk “no automatic weapons”, well, they weren’t auto, they were semi auto, the comeback was “there shouldn’t be semi either”. That my friends is a way of saying all guns should be taken away, or no longer be sold…except maybe flintlock or single action pistols.
Tighter gun restrictions won’t do anything but prevent law abiding citizens from exercising their 2nd amendment right. What if the guy had walked behind the last row with a straight razor and started slicing throats, he could have killed a half dozen before he was stopped. What if he had walked into an ice cream shop with an ax and started hacking people up, probably would have been able to kill several. How about all of the murders committed by stabbing? Are we to ban or restrict everything that could be used to kill a person…or a half a dozen at one time? No. There are crazies out there, and where there’s a will there’s a way. This maniac in Colorado just happened to load up with guns and bullets.
Anyway, I’ll be curious to see the forthcoming information about this guy, because by initial reports he only has a speeding ticket on his record, and is really freaking intelligent (education wise). Wait, sort of like Ted Bundy, who killed a LOT of women…though without a gun.
