I hope all those politicos tooting their own horns over the government’s response to the theater shooting get their just desserts and soon. The Governor of Colorado, the Mayor of Aurora, and the Police Chief are patting each other on the back for, well, what are they so proud of, exactly? Seventy people went down, for God’s sake. It’s a tragedy and may God comfort the survivors and their families. Is it too much to ask politicians to shut up and let the churches, professional counselors and families go about the business of healing the victims? You know the answer to that.
What about Cinemark’s no gun policy?
I have argued with pantywaists how one guy with a carry permit might have prevented some of the killing. All I got was, you are nuts, more innocent people would have been hurt. It’s like they can’t understand the concept that 70 people were shot. Seventy!
It’s always “possible” that some hero could miss and take out an innocent. So, apparently to the logic challenged, while a madman is on a rampage, it is best to sit in place waiting for the police or just wait to be blown away.
Half this country have gone sissy. Pathetic and the same bastages who are scared to death of guns are perfectly fine with having their wives and daughters felt up at the airport. On accounta we have to _imagine_ we are 100% safe at all times. We’d have never made it west of the Mississippi if our forefathers had the same attitude. It’s no wonder so many have fallen from their shoulders and into the gutter.
You’ve probably seen the above. . . a 71 year old guy perforated two punks trying to rob folks at a busy Florida internet cafe. It is not a miracle that only the bad guys got shot. Watch the gent in action. He’s not ripping off indiscriminate shots from 50 feet. He got in close and fired accurately and aggressively until the threat was gone.
I haven’t heard much about the internet cafe hero from the lamestream. We don’t know how it would have turned out if the armed citizen would not have been there. Since he was, it turned out well. In Colorado, there was no armed citizen to intervene and it ended horribly.
