    Let's hope we never get a real life Minority Report. My heart goes with the victims. If only one of the people in the theater was armed it might have gone differently. I saw the Governor in the press conference it seems like he is not going to go for stricter gun laws. Which is a good call on his part.

    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Norm Goldman and Ed Schultz - 2 Talk Radio Bozos, Birds of a Feather who will exploit anything to get a rating, score cheap political points, and be "right."





    "Today on the radio, we serve justice on the issue of gun violence. How can we not? The horrific shootings outside of Denver, during a midnight screening of the new Batman film, command us to once again pay attention to an issue politicians and people alike would rather ignore. While other things are going on - and I will touch on them - I suspect our show today will be all about this terrible incident, and the issues it raises. "

    The biggest thing to learn is absolutely without a doubt how to precisely operate under pressure. This can be a one to one assault, a hostage situation, crowd of innocents and a massacre developing, anything.
    I mean is there anything I can do, other than confront him, to retroactively not let him carry? Could I call the police department, or do they not second guess concealed carrys?

    True, as FNC says nothing of gun rights because who could speak of pro-gun laws on such a day...

    Not taking any political stance here but I mean come on...

    given I would only pull the trigger if I knew where the bullet would hit-yes

    You cannot use suppressive fire in an active shooter situation. but a guy deploying an AR or a pump gun is going to be much easier to ID than someone with a small pistol

    the one time I shot someone it was a contact shot-given what I have read of this issue several people could have contact shot this guy. a rifle or shotgun is far more lethal for offensive attacks on unarmed people but both are far more easy to divert, block or take away at close range. there are some neat fairly easy to use tactics that involve stepping inside the effective interval of a rifleman and punching your pistol into his eye while pulling the trigger. of course if he was aiming at you before you could close that interval you are going to die but if he is aiming at someone several feet to your left or right-you have a better than even chance of winning if you are within several feet

    Here is a technological idea but probably not attractive at the end of the day. Build all future guns with GPS technology that cannot be removed from the gun without disabling the gun. When the guns enter restricted zones the GPS signal automatically alerts authorities.

    Then my grandkids can run a black market on the freebie antiques that were built without the inherent GPS technology.
    Brilliant! I'll meet you outside the theater of your choice in 10 years. You bring your GPS gun and I'll bring my S&W Combat Masterpiece, Model 15-4, heavy barrel, .38 Special and we will see who gets in the theater armed; high tech vs. low tech, new vs. old.
