    Dangerous to the shooter and that's a good thing.

    I wonder if the founders could even imagine the can of worms they were opening for years to come, they must be having a good laugh at us from up above lol.

    I don't need to read the thread to know that someone carrying a concealed hand gun is going to be at a serious disadvantage to a surprise attack by a body armored man shooting an A-15 through a cloud of tear gas.

    Give it up. Making this a debate on gun policy is about as retarded as it gets.

    so you can pretend that the freedom to own guns caused this as you have inanely claimed in the past but that is just plain stupid.

    that this place was a gun free zone is the only law that is really relevant-I doubt this guy would have picked a place where people were more likely to be armed
    Are you a rational person? It would seem otherwise.

    We have the second amendment which allows the USA to be a place where over a hundred million fire arms exist and they are not hard to obtain just like this fellow did.

    For you to make a really stupid comment like OR FREEDOMS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS is to deny the reality of what happened.

    This goes back to your absurd belief that guns are some sort of holy good with no downside.

    On this subject you are simply not a rational person.

    Is that a sincere question or are you pretending to be utterly and completely clueless for some sort of faux dramatic effect?

    mayor bloomturd is whining about this tragedy-NYC-despite its massive gun control efforts has had a massive spike of gun violence. Bloomturd is one of the biggest pimps in the USA. along with him is another gun nut-Congressthing McCarthy who also was wetting herself on this.

    the more people like these assholes want to restrict our rights more people will want to obtain guns and rightfully so

    on the other hand the NRA only says its only comment today is that the thoughts of the membership is with those who were harmed or killed

    the gun control nuts like Bloomturd welcome this sort of massacre to advance his agenda.

    what a disgusting puke that moron is

    Both sides are trying to use this situation to advance their agenda. They are all sick. This is not a situation that would have been solved by more or less guns. People need to stop pretending that they can legislate themselves in security by restricting or advancing gun use.

    There's absolutely no evidence to suggest that armed citizen in the theater couldn't have saved lives.

    I haven't seen the NRA or GOA making any hay out of this-just the gun control nut cases.

    we know that a gun control law would not have stopped this sort of massacre

    would armed citizens have stopped this? maybe yes, maybe not

    we won't know

    but I know armed victims are more likely to survive than unarmed ones

    and we also know it was a gun free zone meaning only active shooters have weapons

    there is also no evidence to say an armed citizen could not of accidently shot a innocent in a dark, smokey cinema. Its all speculation!
