    The fact that this guy surrendered to the police on scene tells me that he wants to get his 15 minutes of fame and wants to enjoy seeing everything about this incident and himself on the news.
    Look sharp, act sharp, be sharp.

          News reports are stating that the suspect purchased all four firearms legally from four different outdoor sports stores. They also stated that he had drum type high capacity magazines for the assault rifle. Hate to say it but i think anti-gun legislation supporters are going to have a field day with this and gun legislation in this country will change dramatically.

            Highly doubt it. It can easily be argued that the legal availability of guns have little to no bearing on this guy, or anyone, getting guns to do their evil. The Columbine shooters had TEC-9s, which were unavailable in stores due to the now expired assault weapons ban. The guy who shot up the shopping mall in the Netherlands last year obviously didn't get his weapons legally as it's near impossible to get a gun over there. Also, gun sales have been WAY up since Obama came into office, and have been even higher in this year since it's an election year, and the number of gun crime has not spiked dramatically. Also, crime was actually LESS rampant 50-60 years ago when guns were more easily acquired; even a lot of liberals will agree that there is little, if any, evidence to show that gun restrictions actually lead to less crime.

            This was a single incident for one thing. Thousands of guns are sold every day with no incident. Second, gun control is a sure career killer for politicians. Third, the Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, and Arizona shooters got their guns legally, and there was absolutely no swing in the public perception of firearms after that. The Brady Campaign, Bloomberg, and the other anti-gunners will say "See? This is what happens when guns are legal!" Some socialist nut who was praying something like this would happen so that they could get out their soapbox again will start demanding, "There ought to be a law..." McCarthy, Schumer, and the usual suspects will push for new bans and the rest of Congress will tell them to go screw themselves...then this will be forgotten and nothing will happen.

            The fact is, the government in generally is screwing up EVERYTHING it touches. I don't think anyone except the ultra-liberal want any more policies restricting individual rights.

              I completely agree with you. The general public wont see it that way though aside from people who own guns.

              Edit: The body armor isn't legal though correct?

                Actually i was being serious and i didnt put my foot in my mouth. He He basically just said he would ignore the sign that was giving him a legal command. Noone gave him the right to ignore the sign. Even the state that the sign was in thinks even off duty cops arnt exempt from it. So How is he any diffrent then anyone else that ignores legal signs.

                AND OMGBBQSAUCE, you are so witty making fun of my screen name, i suprised i havnt heard that before........ oh wait

                  Yes they will. Like I said, if VT and Arizona didn't change their perspective, I don't think this will either. People are not in the "let the government handle it" mode. If anything, it will lead to a spike in permit applications and firearm sales. People don't trust handing things over to the .gov right now and mostly want to do things themselves.

                    Oh wait.



                    This is why gun-free zones make zero sense. Criminals are going to be criminals anywhere. So unless you're securing a facility like an airport or a courthouse (where EVERYONE gets screened before entry), I don't see any benefit to gun-free zones. It only increases the victim count.


                    Gun free zones. Another myth, one more dream, one more manifestation of the stupidity of the "perfect world society" foisted on us by the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Little Mikey Bloomberg, and the rest of the tools surrounded by hordes of armed police or Secret Service personnel. The're protected, the "common people" really don't matter. Show me a criminal that a "Gun Free Zone" ever stopped, and it will the first the one such total stupidity ever stopped.Just my .02 now.

                      Oh, and please forgive me there Eric Holder, I forgot to mention you. Right, you're the guy, who in spite of a SCOTUS ruling to the contrary, feels a law abiding citizen does not have the right to possess a firearm. No doubt in my mind though, how you feel about the court's ruling on Obummer Care. Guess some jerks really can have it both ways.

                        I'm going to try and make sense of the "gun free zone" logic, if there is any. A lot of anti-gun people think that the majority of gun crimes are committed by legally armed people who fly off the handle. Guy gets ****ed that the store clerk won't give him a deal, loses his mind, shoots up the store and, when he comes to and realizes what he did, it's too late. He wasn't planning on doing this; he was just carrying for protection and he lost control. Normally, he wants to follow the rules and thus, if you have a "no guns allowed" sign, he'll follow the rules and, when he comes to the store, if he gets ****ed, he won't be able to shoot anyone.

                        Idiotic? Yes. Do I think that's what their thinking? Probably not. But that's the only logical explanation for the gun-free thing I can think of.

                            This morning as I walked into work to relieve my night shift guy the phone rang. The caller was from Pennsylvania and had to tell a Colorado law enforcement officer that, "The shooting in Aurora, Officer I had to call and tell you, I think he did it because of a woman! Would you please pass this info along?" My officer said he'd be glad to.

                            Not but 15 minutes ago the phone rang again. This time from Michigan, where a woman wanted us to know that, in her opinion, "the suspect was acting out a scene from the video game 'Call of Duty'". Again, I thanked her for the call and moved on with my day.

                            I got to thinking about it. My tiny little police force is exactly 49 freeway miles from Aurora. However these well-meaning (but probably mentally challenged) folks found me is okay. I'm glad they did not tie up the phone lines for the Aurora PD. APD does not need the distractions from what they're doing right now.

                                Aurora Shooting: ABC's Brian Ross Incorrectly Suggests Tea Party Link

                                ABC's Brian Ross got himself into trouble on Friday when he incorrectly suggested there may have been a link between the alleged shooter in the Colorado theater tragedy and the Tea Party. Both Ross and the network later apologized for making the claim.

                                Ross' comments came after federal officials informed news outlets that the suspect was named James Holmes. George Stephanopoulos threw to him on "Good Morning America" by saying, "You've been investigating the background of Jim Holmes here. You found something that might be significant."

                                "There's a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, page on the Colorado Tea party site as well, talking about him joining the Tea Party last year," Ross said. "Now, we don't know if this is the same Jim Holmes. But it's Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado.

                                ---------------

                                ABC later retracted the above.
                                Well it was bound to happen sometime......................

                                When in doubt, blame the Tea Party.

                                *smh*
                                It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.
