Guns Don't Kill People, People with Freely Available Automatic Weapons with 100 Bullet Drum Magazines Do

Mag AR-15 5.56x45mm C-Mag Beta Mag 100 Round Capacity Plastic Construction Clear Rear Cover Made In U.S.A.Opinions You Should Have joins the scores of gun enthusiasts who insist that, if Colorado allowed its citizens to carry concealed weapons, there would have been far less bloodshed in Aurora -- not counting the additional people who would have been shot by civilians attempting to shoot the assailant in the dark in a completely crowded theater filled by panicked people trying to escape.

This has been an Opinions You Should Have incredibly brief editorial.

I think the blog is in need for an overhaul. If I could remember how to do that.

This I like and feel very strongly about. And if the violence continues, we will have more paranoids responding to their thoughts by voices they hear to kill, kill, kill. How about that?

Automatic weapons are not available for purchase. In countries where guns are restricted people kill with knives, clubs, stones, suicide vests, car bombs. The culture of anger and killing is not related to the weapons or methods used. Focusing on the instrument is not helpful in attempting to transform the culture. Start with the vengeful, retributive for profit penal system. Stop spending 53% of taxes on the military. Hold the true financial criminals accountable....just for starters. It is too easy to simply demonize a piece of metal.

Had the occasion to visit a shooting range in a nearby town. People bringing whole arsenals with them One guy with 20+ weapons with him vaguely threatened us 'cause we were in the way of the restroom door.

Scary people are the Gun People.

Bring back the Hanging tree!! Remember the old cowboy movies about the 1800? How the murderer sweated as he looked through the bars while they were building the Gallows?Talk about a deterrent! Everybody had guns but they were careful how they used them. Justice was swift and permanent. Yet the weepies will cry "not capital punishment"The same people will send eighteen year old children ,who committed no crime ,off to war to be killed by the thousands....Go figure!! .....Charlie M.
