While I feel bad for this man and the others that were shot by Holmes, what he and others who are calling for stricter gun control laws don't realize are 1) Gun laws only stop those who follow the law. Holmes was planning on killing people so no law no matter how strict would have stopped him from doing his deed.2) Holmes had his apartment booby trapped with bombs to kill Law Enforcement, if he had not been able to get a gun he could have still killed by strapping on a bomb. 3) It won't do any good to have stricter gun control laws when the courts don't enforce the laws that are already in place and the LEOs are already arresting criminals for..
I love his reference to "CHICAGO" . One of the top two States with multiple cross restrictions on LEGAL GUN OWNERSHIP. "IF SOMEONE COULD GIVE ME ANY DECENT ARGUMENT ABOUT GUN CONTROL TO INCLUDE THE OUT RIGHT BANNING OF GUNS , I WOULD BE MORE THEN WILLING TO DEBATE WITH THEM". No Law or compilation of Laws can stop gun violence , "IT MIGHT BE ABLE TO LESTEN IT A LITTLE BIT BUT IT WILL NEVER MAKE MUCH OF A DENT IN GUN USAGE". Anyone can make a "ZIP GUN (single shot) out of nothing more then a steel tube. Sucker a cop into a false call and shoot him with a bow and arrow and then take his gun and ammunition. Buy a gun from "ORGANIZED CRIME PEOPLE WHO EITHER IMPORT THEM OR MANUFACTURE THEM IN THEIR OWN MACHINE SHOPS". "GET THE PROBLEM RIGHT , IT'S NOT THE GUN IT'S THE PERSON WHO HAS THE GUN". As my Daughter would say "you just can't fix stupid" and fancy one liners and slogans don't get the problem solved. "MAKE PEOPLE WHO USE A GUN IN THE COMMISSION OF A CRIME SERVE AT LEAST A 20 YEAR MANDATORY TERM FOR THE POSSESSION OF THE GUN DURING A CRIMINAL ACT, THEN ADDRESS THE CRIME AND IT'S PUNISHMENT SEPARATELY" !!!!!!!
No matter how many laws are in place, there is nothing to stop a active shooter unless he's met with armed resistance. Furthermore, any business that has a sign with the message This is a Gun Free Zone only tells criminals they will meet little or no resiststance.
Having strict gun control laws really deter criminal gangbangers from having guns.
This is just plain stupid. It's like taking away the car from a drunk driver. It's not the car that committed the crime, it's the idiot that put himself behind the wheel! Come on man!!!!
What a freaking idiot. He lives in NYC, about a gon controlled place as possible. He was shot by a shotgun, never heard of anyone advocationg shotgun control.
Another gun free zone!
