Some quotes in the news:
(CBS News) In the wake of a mass shooting in a suburban Denver movie theater, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is calling on President Obama and Mitt Romney to offer up more than "soothing words" and talk about how they will address gun-related violence. "Maybe it's time that the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country." "I mean, there are so many murders with guns every day, it's just got to stop," he continued. "And instead of the two people - President Obama and Governor Romney - talking in broad things about they want to make the world a better place, okay, tell us how. And this is a real problem. No matter where you stand on the Second Amendment, no matter where you stand on guns, we have a right to hear from both of them concretely, not just in generalities - specifically what are they going to do about guns?" Bloomberg said in an interview on WOR News Talk Radio 710 in New York City.
There is no good enough words to comfort and console families that lost loved ones in the most barbaric, heinious and cold massacre in Aurora, Colorado.
When will this senseless violence stop? Unless something serious enough is done with our elected leaders, it will never stop.
As Father Mauricio Bermudez of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Aurora said, "our culture need to change" (NBC News.com, July 22, 2012). With the understanding that this is not the first, and will not be the last, it begs the question....is it time to move the debate for gun control to the front bunner? And is it worthy to leave this heavy assault weapons out there in free market for any psycho like James Eagan Holmes to purchase to go for joy-ride murder spree?
First and foremost I would like to say I am sorry for the events in Aurora CO, they should have never had the chance to happen, My heart goes out to the loss of life and to the pain that follows the loss of a loved one. But with that said, I need to say this:
So let me get this right if a fool or crazy person walks into a store and buys a gun and then kills someone or a group of people, you then stop the flow of guns and control the guns and not the people? You don't stop people with problems from hurting other people? You Control gun and not control crazy fools who would hurt and kill one way or the other.
So by this logic I am to assume that car control for the drunk drivers is next because drunk drivers kill many people every year, so we will have to stop the sale of cars. And to go on with the logic then baseball bats, golf clubs, knifes, rope, rocks, 2X4's, water, and very many other items that are used to kill people will soon join the ranks of guns and be controlled. Lets just stop selling everything that can be used to kill or hurt someone. Then we can all hold hands and sing a song for peace and the rainbows will show up.
I know people died and I know people are in the hospital in pain and there lives will never be the same and I hope the fool who did this get the death sentence for what he has done. But at the same time why jump on the gun control train right out of the gate? Why walk on the rights of so many because the one took others rights? I tell you why because the fools in office whats us unarmed and easy to run over! A group of people who can't defend themselves are a easy group of people to control and that's it. With gun control you can control the people of this country, as it is right now you can run over us because we can and would fight back, but with our guns the fools in office could do as they like and we would have to take it. The movie theater was a "Gun Free Zone" my question is this, what would have been the outcome if there were one or two people in that movie with CCW and there sidearm? Would so many have died? Would so many have gone to the hospital? We will never know and I for one will not shop at or go into a place that will not let me carry a firearm. Keep your eye's open my patriot friends because the gun grab is on it's way. Get your house in order and ready yourselves for the coming storm.
