    Bump cedardale!

    What presidential candidates and governors need to do is create and support a nationwide concealed carry law so honest Americans could defend themselves during incidents like this. Imagine if a few of those movie patrons were legally carrying and were able to take out the now called "red haired joker" how many victims might have been saved...

    Unfortunately some very vocal people do take mayor Bloomberg seriously. The issue here is that there is no way to prevent tragedies like this.

    I suppose we could create a massive campaign eliminating all legal gun sales, implementing 24 hour surveillance in public locations, limiting the manner in which people can travel without being tracked, and a drastic increase of security and law enforcement personnel to effect these changes could possibly limit the potential for mass shootings. I, however, do not relish having to produce indentification on demand for routine checks and/or go through random and fixed checkpoints just to go to the grocery store or to visit a friend.

    Criminals, however, will still gain access to firearms or other dangerous devices through the same smuggling methods that narcotics are brought into the country. Criminals are not constrained by laws, only law abiding citizens follow laws.

    Our society is supposed to be based on individual freedoms. Those freedoms, however, equal the potential for risk. We can be secure and kept like cattle in the above example or we can be aware of ourselves, take care of others and stay vigilant for threats and accept that the responsibility to be safe falls upon ourselves.

    Clearly the problem was too few guns , not too many. A CCW holder or an off duty LEO could have put a quick end to this, if there had been one present. Wonder if the theater bars CCW's from carrying their firearms, I know some do.

    ....and once again the Anti-Gun Lobby crawls out from under their collective rock. Address the individual who committed the crime and do not automatically call for tighter restrictions on legal gun owners. New York and New Jersey have some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country yet New York and Newark are filled with illegal guns. If you want to control guns then make the penalties for the possession and/or use of an illegal gun so strict and severe that the criminal violating those laws would not see daylight for 50 years.
