Many assert, and I tend to agree, that ANY armed resistance would have likely stopped his brief assault and murder spree, or at least made him pause and seek cover long enough to allow many more to escape injury and death. When you are up to your ass in alligators it is hard to remember that your mission was simply to drain the swamp. ;-)
    In Colorado if you have a CCW permit you can carry in a theater. You can even carry if the theater does not permit it... If the theater doesn't have guards and detectors... Which this theater didn't... Just sayin

    In Ohio if you carry into a place that has no CCWs it is considered trespassing-a misdemeanor. It may be grounds for revocation

    Colorado has local pre-emption on gun laws, so it would depend on the city. Many Colorado cities are very anti-gun. Denver's chief used to brag that he'd arrest anyone carrying a gun in Denver, permit or no permit.

    Local law in Aurora, CO disagrees with you, it is a crime in that city (but unclear if it is enforced).

    Aurora's Strict Gun Laws Didn't Prevent Shooting, But If One Law-Abiding Person In The Theater Had Been Carrying One... | CNSNews.com

    YOur own sources prove that Canada has a diverse population just as I claimed. And nothing you presented shows that I was wrong in stating that there are minorities in Japan.

    You claimed cultural differences without offering any proof that the stuff mentioned either exists or is important as a factor.

    I already have said - repeatedly - that I fully support the right of an American to have a firearm to protect themselves or use for their own recreational purposes.

    Which words in that statement do you not understand?

    You haven't been specific at all about what you DO want to do, just very vocal in protesting that you want "reasonable restrictions". Problem is you won't define them... and I'm guessing you won't define them because you know we'd find your version of "reasonable" to be most UNreasonable, and/or ineffective.

    It is highly, HIGHLY improbable that any gun control law would have stopped this guy. I think you know that anything you propose would have holes shot in it, metaphorically speaking, as being ineffective in preventing this man from engaging in mass murder.

    As I've said, we already have many states, like my own, where many people go armed daily and possess what you'd term "powerful weapons". We also don't have wholesale bloodbaths like this Colorado thing, or at least much more rarely.
    Middle ground!?!?!?!?!?!? Carrying around powerful weapons in public is middle ground?!?!?!?!?!?!? Needing what you euphemistically call "tactically effective weapons" is your version of middle ground!?!?!?!?!?

    And you wonder why some of you are labeled as extremists?

    Amazing!!!!!

    your rant about making dead people "martyrs of the second amendment" says otherwise
