Guns aren’t the problem, mental illness is the problem. If he hadn’t used a gun he could have found some other legal way to do the same thing. He could have made a bomb with completely legal materials. Some people use a automobile to kill. On 9/11 hijackers used box cutters because they knew they couldn’t get guns on an airplane.
The point is people that want to commit violent acts will find a way and you can’t make laws to prevent it.
This wouldn’t have happened in a town like Kennesaw GA. In Kennesaw GA there is a law requiring gun ownership. I bet James Holmes wouln’t have pulled his stunt in a theater in Kennesaw!

Eh your logic amazes me …so a mad man gets a gun ..and he will get one some how ,and your answer is to disarm the whole US so the slaughter can go on unhindered ..what gives you or anybody else the right to take away my right to defend myself . If one person had been armed in that audiance this may have turned out different ..Cops ? the station was right across the street ..it appears they just waited outside untill this guy was done .. if you think beggiing for mercy is a great defense I feel sorry for you …maybe you’ll thank me or someone like me that chooses to defend themself while you cower in fear
