Expect the gun control crescendo to go exponential now.

I’m really thankful I don’t live in New Yawk where Bloomberg wants to control every aspect of life. If he doesn’t like people having guns, then he should take the appropriate steps set forth in The Constitution and have the 2nd Amendment Repealed. In the meantime, he and his lib buddies can STFU!

Let’s focus on banning large-quantity soft drinks. Clearly, people at movie theaters consume large-size drinks. If movie theaters didn’t have such large size drinks, then perhaps not as many people would have died.

I hate it but Bloomberg is a moron and he’s just another dictator wannabe but apparently New Yorkers like that- they’ve given him more than one term - right now NYC unemployment rate is 10 %. I’m sure however that New Yorkers will give him yet another term. You just have to wonder about people.

Bloomberg needs to shut his fat stupid yap and read the Bill of Rights.
There’s a reason the second one is in there, he needs to figure that out and shut the heck up.
There is a reason no military force has invaded us.

” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an outspoken advocate of stricter gun-control laws, said in a radio interview Friday the two candidates for president needed to take a firmer line in addressing gun violence.”

Obama might need to address gun violence, as there are already reportedly more murders in Chicago this year, than in all of last year. I doubt Romney has a similar worry : )

Bloomberg already has 20 BILLION in net worth, so I guess all he can really pine for is more POLITICAL POWER. He is a real POS. Me? I’m going to the nearest convenience store, and buy a 64 oz. soft drink.....Hail to the dictator!!

LOL

That figures. The liberals always predictable and it isn't always about the control of fire arms. The stupid laws and regulations we have aren’t stupid enough so we need even more stupider laws and regs.

Bloomberg isn’t worried. He has plenty of armed guards to protect him. Suppose one of the audience in a decent position had a gun. The body count could have been lower.

For an apparently intelligent businessman, who has made a lot of money, Mayor Bloomberg is an emotion driven dysron when it comes to understanding social reality. There is no way we can prevent a crazed individual, with the intelligence to concoct & plot an atrocity, from committing an atrocity.

I am sure that the Mayor is trying to provoke an attack on the Second Amendment, but that is completely irrational. Does anyone believe that a PHD student at a medical college, would not be able to devise an even more deadly attack, without resorting to firearms?

(I withhold suggestions, lest they trigger some weird, hate driven attack, by stirring an evil imagination..)

Of course, the most rational answer would be to provide armed--not disarmed--staff at all large crowd events; but that might seem cost prohibitive, considering that this is not a common occurrence. But when only the despicable are armed, the law abiding are vulnerable.

It also occurs, that perhaps this depraved individual was set off, like those at nearby Columbine High School in the 1990s & at other High Schools, by the trashing of normal adolescent motivations. There are not enough facts known, yet, to make the connection; but here is a response offered in the '90s, to the Leftist effort to disarm the law-abiding over Columbine: Something Of Value.

May God give the decent people of America the moral fiber and strength to resist the calls by those who are not comfortable with a free society, to give up our fundamental rights in the name of "safety!" History is replete with evidence that such surrender brings neither freedom nor safety.

It happens every time. After columbine, the anti-gun crowd went ape, after the Asian guy went nuts in Virginia —same thing. Nothing new here. People like Nanny Bloomberg and a plethora of others want to disarm law abiding sane Americans. The crazies & criminal are going to get the guns no matter. So why screw the rest of us. I really wish we had Israeli gun laws here.

Using the new-found penalty for inaction is a tax logic which no doubt the mayor supports, I suggest that any citizen over the age of 21, who is qualified (by not being a felon, or mentally unstable)who does not regularly carry a firearm to public gatherings pay a yearly tax of $1000.

Had that policy and "tax" been in effect, and of course all of the foolish anti-gun restrictions and laws promoted by people like Mayor Bloomberg repealed, it would be virtually certain than the attendees at the Batman movie opening would all be safe and sound at home today, except of course for the lunatic gunman.

So Mayor, I suggest that you rethink your foolish anti-gun policies. One or two armed citizens in that theater could have saved a dozen lives.

I agree completely. Allowing law-abiding citizens to be armed will greatly decrease gun violence.

My sympathies. My family couldn't put up with NYC's Copperhead Democrats and left at the time of the Civil War. My daughter works in NYC, and even as a tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing vegetarian, she commutes from New Jersey because she finds the place waaaaay too liberal!

It has been reported that next Friday,July 27th, Obama plans on signing the UN small Arms Gun Ban Treaty. Knowing what we know about this administration and ‘Fast and Furious’ and how they deliberately created a situation,that would eventually lead to the murders of at least 300 mexican citizen’s and 2 American border patrol agents,to create a pre-text to eliminate our God given,Second Ammendment Right’s. Whose to say they wouldn’t be involved in a situation like this,so Obama could use this massacre in his signing statement next week,as to why we have to ban small arms? Pay attention this weekend and going into next week and see if they start testing that meme as a reason for the Treaty.This administration is capable of anything!

"...Obama could use this massacre in his signing statement next week, as to why we have to ban small arms? Pay attention this weekend and going into next week and see if they start testing that meme as a reason for the Treaty. This administration is capable of anything!

So often the timing of these types of incidents does seem awfully coincidental.

At a televised news conference the Aurora Police official said there were 100 FBI agents helping them out.

That way the government will be able to keep a lid on any information they don't want to reach the public.

(We may be paranoid but that doesn't mean Homeland Security isn't really after us.)

Bloomberg is the absolute scum of the earth for turning this into a political issue. The son of a bitch that killed these people and wounded countless others DID NOT HAVE GUN PERMITS! Can you tell me how it would help this country to take the guns out of the hands of honest good Americans? It would be a utopia if the only people that could possess guns are the psychotics, criminals, illegals, cops, and the government. NOT!

“I agree completely. Allowing law-abiding citizens to be armed will greatly decrease gun violence.”

Yes, exactly what we need. I am a 77 young grandmother, I would like nothing more than to see my grandchildren trained on how to use a handgun, take them to target practice often as possible. I get so tired of hearing the nitwits making these remarks everytime there is a shooting. If they had their way, the only person with a handgun would be the criminals.

After Fast and Furious, I would not be surprised if they somehow were connected to the incident. It has always struck me as odd that on occasions when some major news is supposed to break (Arpaio's press conference) something comes along...and especially where firearms and the RKBA are concerned, an incident.

Oates said Holmes’ lone interaction with local police prior to the shooting occurred in October when he was cited for speeding.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/07/20/deadly-shooting-colorado-movie-theater-dark-knight-rises/#ixzz21CZajd3l

So....would Bloomburg add speeding to the list of exclusions for buying guns? If the guy was law abiding, what law would stop him? Would love to hear someone from the press ask him this simple question.
