“...police would search out a witness...”
In my fantasy world,
all of the other theater-goers would say they were unable to identify the hero... know...
...because of all the shock and emotion and er’-thing...

Why We Should Swallow Our Vomit And Vote Straight Ticket

I’m just here to stir the muck ....

Extrapolating from your facts, the salient difference between firearms and soap is that there is no constitutionally protected right—or obligation—to bathe one’s self/skanky a**.
Of course this might explain the olfactory pungeance of OWS, their parents and the like/ilk.
They may use your argument to say that they fear bath tubs and shower stalls.
As a result when they attempt (once again) to burden our 2nd Amendment rights, we will have to pass a law requiring that stinking hippies of all ages, stripes and socio-economic classes adhere to a certain minimum standard of bodily hygiene.
In order to do that we’ll need a A GOP congress and executive branch.
Admittedly, there is no guarantee that a GOP congress and executive branch will be conservative, but I tender for your consideration that it is more likely that Republicans will have higher sanitary standards than Democrats (to wit, Mrs. Barney Frank) and require similar standards from others.
I’m sure that Mitt Romney, as life-like as he is or can be, doesn’t stink up a room like, say, a Reverend Al Sharpton. I mean, they don’t let just anyone try on those celestial undergarments; I’m sure you have to pass some sort of `sniff test’ to become a Mormon bishop
So that’s the choice: a stinking Obama and his anarchic, odoriferous fellow dhimmicrats, or a hygienic GOP and your 2nd Amendment rights.

*an AR-15 AK-47 assault rifle machine gun

*two fully-automatic Glock AK-47 assault rifle revolvers

*12-gauge automatic AK-47 assault rifle shotgun

There are sure alot of firearms that I’ve never heard of and I have my FFL.

Yesterday I read about an 8ga Remington 1270.

WHO are these people?

One of the things I always point out whenever I’m drawn into conversations about things like this is that I could go to the local Home Depot and a gas station and come home with everything I would need to murder a lot of people.

a .357 would have at least knocked him down then he could have been disarmed or killed.

And a .380 or .38 special between the lights would have put him down, permanently. But a bunch of peripheral hits on arms and legs, would have also taken him out of action, long enough at any rate.

we both know public opinion on gun control will take a turn for the worse. Brace yourselves for more gun control laws coming down the pipeline.

Its almost as if this rampage was made to order to give Obama an issue to inflame anti-gun passions just at the time when liberals are trying to force a UN gun control treaty on the USA.

A suspicious person might wonder if this was another False Flag project (like Fast and Furious), calculated to provide liberals with a gun issue at just the right time to bolster their pro-treaty arguments (and maybe help with Obama's reelection too)

I’d say the lessons learned are:

1) Make sure your CC (concealed carry) weapons have a well adjusted laser.

2) Target practice like crazy, practicing shooting while diving, running, jumping out of helicopters and repelling down walls if possible

3) save lives first then worry about CC restriction laws later.

Not saying doing these things could have stopped Holmes, but I think several people doing all these things in the audience might have had a better chance at less causalities.

Do we let them disarm us? Never! They can pass all the laws they want. Too many guns already out there. Most of them in the hands of good people ready stop the tyranny of a government hell bent on controlling us.
