Things like this don't happen because people own guns, it happens because some people are f'ing crazy.
There are over 200 million guns in the US, and every once in awhile some psychotic person gets his hands on one. That's a pretty low ratio.
And the thing with crazy people is if/when they snap, and if they want to hurt people, they'll find a way. Get in a car and run people over. Mass arson. Chainsaw. You name it.
Taking people's rights away because of a handful of psychotic people is the answer? I don't think so. That's not freedom.
MH you're absolutely right.
As I stated earlier, I've lived in areas where hunting is a tradition. I've hunted deer and elk and I owned several firearms. I had a legitimate need for them. Today I live in a large city. I no longer hunt, so I no longer own firearms. If I need protection, I call the police and since I have no plans to overthrow a government anytime soon, I have no legitimate need for firearms. You may choose to characterize that as "liberal gun control BS", but I prefer to think of it as an intelligent response to a common sense problem.
I'm still waiting to hear an intelligent response from you. Perhaps one that doesn't include a chainsaw.
That's exactly why I won't be attending movies unless I can defend myself by bringing my firearm. If not then I'll just wait till it comes out on DVD and watch in in the safety of my home with my guns. Now you'll have to start going through metal detectors at movies because of this. They should start having off duty police there or armed security at the minimum. What is this world coming to. You can't even go to a movie now without worrying about getting killed. Godbless the families and the community and my the shooter burn in hell for killing innocent people especially children. What a sick sick animal.
Take it to PMs if you'd like to be educated. This thread is for positive thoughts & prayers going out to those hurt by this tragedy.
(And FYI, I don't need anyone to pay a price for my freedom. I already did that in the military.)
what about this guy
"Rohrs said he lost his 4-month-old son, Ethan, in the darkness and chaos of the theater, but got out himself."
"You need to read some other interviews of this coward. He set the baby on the floor because he was crying and he was afraid the crying would attract the shooter's attention and get himself shot. He jumped off the balcony, abandoning his 2 young children and girlfriend, he GOT IN HIS VEHICLE AND DROVE AWAY. She reached him on a cell phone and he came back to pick them up."
