without getting into a long debate (and this is definatley a topic for that!) We are are not far off from each other factoryconnection. Most gun people don't think that guns should just be given to everybody to carry without the proper training. As far as the scenerios in the theatre we can do that all day. I would also agree that, even with armed people in there, there could be teh same amount of dead and injured or even more, but I do think the chances are better to deal with the shooter with some armed citizens than without. Even with body armour, it would get his attention and daze him if hit, thus givng some people a chance.
Thank you arty! This is just another liberal article on why we should all just give up our rights and just let the gov make all the decisions for us. I like how you KNOW how it probably would have went down if someone had a gun other than James Holmes in that theatre. What if I said, I know that if someone had a gun, and given that person went through some training to get that CPW, assessed the situation and took Holmes out that only 3 people got klilled instead of 9. Does your hypothetical situation have more credence than mine because you write in a paper? Also, I would rather have Brave Warrior accidently shoot (even kill) another bystander and stopping the shooter at the same time to keep the carnage down. Isn't 3-4 persons dead and 12-15 injured better than 12 dead and 40+ injured? The simple truth is there will always be BAD people with BAD intentions and they DO NOT abide by any laws!!! In some ways alort of those people were lucky he could get guns because it looked like he was very skilled at bomb making too. If he didnt have the guns would he have just blown the entire theatre up, killing hundreds of people? Who knows!
Chris, if you want a country where the gov make most of your decisions for you, there are already plenty of them for you to move to!
