Imagine if the Aurora gunman knew that people were carrying weapons in the theater like at a gun club. That would have put a lot of ice water on his passion to commit homicides en masse This author can't recall a single story where there was a massacre like in Colorado at a gun club. He can't even recall any kind of killing by a deranged gunman at any gun club.
We wonder why. Could it be that at a gun club everyone is packing a gun and that if a nut like the Colorado shooter started to pick people off he would be dead in a quarter of a second. It's not the guns that create mass murders. It's the psychos. Psychopaths and generally severely deranged nuts like to kill defenseless people, but they are not so crazy as to try it at a gun club. Any person with visions of mass killing are clear on one thing. They want to do the killing and do not want to be killed. They are never as deranged as to try mass killing at a place where they know they won't have much of a chance to succeed or make it out alive.
There is a lesson here for the opportunistic Democrats who are now calling for a special session in Congress for greater gun control. Making people more and more defenseless is what got them killed at the theater to begin with. Honestly, Democrats are death centered people. Getting people killed seems to be what they are good at. They keep making the same case to make people more and more defenseless regardless of the costs to human life as in this discussion on ABC news. They never ever talk about enabling people to defend themselves but always about sacrificing them for the greater good.
Do you remember "Fast and Furious"? The conventional wisdom was that this was a scheme to flood the drug cartels with free guns so as to make a case for greater gun control. The massacre in the movie theater is another liberal opportunity to further gun control which accomplishes the opposite of what is promised namely the safety of the individual. The policy in the movie theater was that guns were not allowed under penalty of felony. The theater demanded that people walk into the theater completely defenseless and it did nothing to make sure adequate security was there. What juicy lawsuits this will make. Imagine, if a handful of people had been allowed to carry their firearms. What a different outcome we might have had when Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head by a nut like the one in Colorado if people actually had carried guns. What a difference that would have made. Do you remember the Fort Hood massacre where a Muslim extremist did the same as the nut in Aurora? He too knew that everyone on this military base was not allowed to have guns. These nuts are not that crazy. They pick venues where they know people are defenseless to practice their slaughter. The point of mentioning Fast and Furious, the Aurora massacre, Gabrielle Giffords, and Fort Hood is that they all have the same thing in common. People are expected to make themselves defenseless in these venues by the government and when they are sacrificed they are used as props to make people even more defenseless with more gun control.
Now Democrats want greater gun control the very same policy that got these people killed. If all the guns were made illegal, crime would go up not down as was seen in Australia and England when guns were outlawed. Incidentally, Hugo Chavez just outlawed gun ownership in Venezuela and the country has become a total war zone where people are being slaughtered daily. The bad guys keep getting the guns in order to prey on the defenseless which the government has made them so.
For some reason, Democrats are more concerned with feel-good policies at the expense of the individual. Look at the gun control laws in Chicago another Democrat bastion. This month more than twice the number of people were killed in Chicago than were in Aurora and not a peep from the mainstream press. Why is that do you suppose? The city is a militarized zone and nothing is done whatsoever to empower the individual to defend himself. Why Democrats are so quick to sacrifice the individual to slaughter is mind boggling at times. Perhaps, it is because liberals, aka democrats, aka socialists, aka Marxists are always enthusiastic to sacrifice the individual for the good of the collective using the main stream media as its willing accomplice . The individual is irrelevant to the liberal. In fact gun control has nothing to do with crime control and everything to do with keeping politicians safe at the expense of the rest of us and furthering their collective agenda.
There is a very distinctive pattern here. Gun control advocates never think about making people safer. They always focus on making people more defenseless and in the process getting more and more people killed.
President Obama went on a rampage early on his administration to release the inmates at the marine base of Guantanamo Bay. Just recently one of those released master minded the killing of 30 Jews on a bus in Bulgaria. As a matter of fact, many of those released from Guantanamo Bay have gone right back to their terrorist ways. You have got to love this following story. Only 16% of released Guantanamo detainees go back to terrorism. The liberal agenda is taking comfort in the idea that only 16% are killing and maiming others. Oh! Well! As long as it is for the greater good maybe it is worth it.
Obama's release of the inmate who went on to kill the Jews and gun control have one thing in common. They emanate from liberal policies that have no regard for the ordinary citizen. The liberal policy is one of death and dying. These policies are designed with a willingness to get people killed as long as the liberal agenda is furthered. It all boils down to sacrificing the individual to the collective aka the greater good. This is very obvious.
Ironically, those Democrats in power believe their entourage should be armed to the teeth so they can be adequately protected but the rest of us out here are expected to take a bullet for the greater good. What rot!

I saw a massacre at a gun club in Denver.
It was the movie “Massacre at the little big horn”.
I think there was an attempt a few years ago. It turned into a suicide by armed bystander very quickly.
All these massacres occur in gun free zones, but they still don’t get it.
Look at D.C. people are afraid to walk at night BC the fact is they know they will get robbed. Crime in D.C. I hear is horrible but I guess it is easy to make laws in a place where u can’t even own a gun by law but I hear a judge there overturned the concealed law so maybe it coming around I don’t know.
The gun club to which I belong is invaded 1 Sat./mth for 9 mths
of the year by app 120 kids participating in the 4-H shooting
program. The 10-18 yr olds get plenty of intensive classroom in-
struction in our clubhouse by thoroughly trained club members.
I have never seen so many kids sit so long, so intentively learning
gun safety. After class the kids learn how to trap shoot and com-
pete in a postal trap competition. Also the kids learn how to fire
.22 cal rifles at the rifle and pistol range. Archery is in the mix, as
well. Where does all this take place? Why, in the evil gun hating
state of California. See, we’re not all as whack as some of you
like to portray us. BTW we do this as volunteers. Even the ammo
I practiced gun control last week. A 5 inch group from 200 yards using a 1903 Springfield with open sights using Korean Surplus Ammo. That my friends is Gun ControlBut I must confess it did have match sights on it.
No, and we sure would have.
I was just reminded tonight that Switzerland’s citizens are quite well armed iand nobody messes with Switzerland
Also Israel and most of the USA.
There is no way to capture a free nation where the majority is armed and knows what to do with it. Dictators have always feared the Swiss and us Americans.
The only way to invade such nations is with WMD
