Morons in the press think that it’s all about appearance. An AR15 military style semi-automatic rifle is horrible, but it’s Sporter version is just fine! Never mind that they are functionally equivalent! It’s that nasty flash suppressor and the pistol grip that are the “killer” features. Oh and lets’ not forget the utility rail, because so many folks mount their bayonets before going to the movie theater!

I have read the gun jammed. The shooter had several guns. How many shots did he fire from each?

Under the old assault weapons law a magazine holding more than 10 rounds was not allowed except those grandfathered in. Would the limited magazine capacity have done anything?

What in the hell will this ban do? Damn fools cannot see it is the sickness of some individuals in America that will never be cured or stopped. Would it have been better if this pervert spread gasoline around the theater and lit it? Stupidity is stupidity is and almost all of the politicians running America are so damn ignorant.

The Left’s emphasis on “assault rifles” to reduce crime related deaths makes little sense as handguns are the “weapon of choice” for gang bangers, etc. However if the intent is to disarm any resistance to tyranny . . .

The shooter was a liberal who participated in OWS in San Diego. So I propose a compromise. Liberals are not allowed to own “assault” weapons of any kind. In fact, the most they can own is a can of pepper spray.

A lighter and a popcorn pail full of gas soaked rags would have had pretty much the same effect.

I am quite sure that there is a law against murder in Colorado. Likewise, there are laws against threatening people, and I rather doubt that the shooter in this case had a legal right to even carry a firearm outside of his own home (except to/from a shooting range or gun store).

Bottom line: none of those laws Stopped crimes from being committed, nor saved anyone. Just as logical, no gun control law would have saved these people, either - because this guy was clearly capable of making bombs. Gun control only affects the otherwise law-abiding, it has exactly ZERO effect on those intent on committing crimes of one type or another.

Maybe the writer of this stupid screed should consider that there are literally about 250 million firearms in this country, and that any serious attempt to control firearms would involve a MASSIVE denial of the most basic human right (that of self-protection), to say nothing of the destruction of at least the 4th and 5th Amendment. For “gun control” to work, you’d have to take away ALL of the firearms from 85-90 million people (good luck with that one, BTW), and make damned sure that no other guns were imported illegally (most likely by the drug gangs, which are “rumored” to have hundreds of pipelines into this country from multiple foreign sources), and that no one with the expertise decided to manufacture guns in their basement or garage (and there are literally hundreds of thousands with that capacity). Simply put, the advocates of gun control are asking for no more and no less than the imposition of a massive totalitarian state...something that the 2nd Amendment is specifically designed to prevent. What they will get if they are allowed to make a serious attempt is a 2nd Civil War, one that would make the carnage of the first one look like 2 little kids having a fight in a sandbox.

We can ban “assault rifles” all day long but it won’t do any good until we start doing something with maggots like the boy with the Ronald McDonald haircut.

Hey Jennifer!

When you discover that most of the deaths and injuries resulted from buckshot delivered by the Remington 870, pump-action shotgun, what will be your solution then?
