To all who think the 2nd Amendment is a farce and should be abolished, I have something for you to think about...First of all, since movies are the topic. Has anyone seen the movie " A Clockwork Orange"? In the movie, a group of glorified psychopaths perform a home invasion on a couple. I will not go into detail of the scene and for all who have not seen the movie can look it up. The point is, If the criminals and psychopaths know that all you have to protect your home is a kitchen knife, then they would be more prone to commit these crimes. (unless you live next door to the police station). Also, think about this if the 2nd amendment is taken away, what's to say that the 1st Amendment should taken away or any rights we have. The best thing to do is pray for all affected and fight for way of life.

Same old tired arguments from the liberal left in favor of gun-control. Fact: There are over 22,000 gun-control laws in effect in this country on the national, state & local municipality levels. And NONE of them work! Gee, now why is that? Is it possibly because criminals do not traditionally obey mere laws?

If I were AMC theaters I would rescind the nationwide police of disallowing legalized concealed-carry on their premises and go as far to offer a 20% discount to all conceal-carry holders. Cheap security.

If someone w/ a concealed weapons permit'd been in theatre, they might've saved people. If they want a more thorough process, have (potential) gun owners go through the same as a concealed weapons permit every 2 years. Much more thorough background check, classes, etc. People who shouldn't own guns always will, imho & the history of it in our country has changed dramatically the last 60 yrs.

Another hot bed of contention with this story. Does anyone remember the NRA commercial featuring Charlton Heston? The rallying cry of "from my cold dead hands" ignited a firestorm. Weapons and drugs are big (dirty) money makers across the globe; I just don't see how they can or will be stopped.....too much money and power are involved. Sadly, we regular folks are just collateral damage.

@Sara, you're wrong.

@Chely and Dyllon, Whomever sold the tear gas is in deep, but honestly he was studying neuroscience. He could have made his own. Although my family owns these guns, I agree with both of you. Heavy artillery should not be sold (mine was willed to me). The Glock and the rifle stay loaded for home protection.

@Sara Troll Please go away! It's folks like you who will push people away from a site. Of course, most strong-minded, self-actualized individuals will have the smarts to see your kind for what you are and ignore you and go about their blogging business.

Oh, ya, I'm sure gun control laws make sense. After all, There is no doubt that criminals will abide by these laws along with law abiding citizens. Also, just think of how free of fear we all (by we I mean criminals here) will be when we walk around knowing we have the only guns in town.... (besides the guns cops use)

I'm for some guns but these assault riffles that pop off multiple rounds are not needed. And neither is the sell of freakin tear gas!

Sara, I'm saying what others feel too. Perhaps Matt uses various user names but this isn't one of them. I clearly stated my opinion about an incident that was mentioned in the news regarding an older gentleman that fought off robbers in an Internet Cafe because he had a legally-owned gun, which was not repeated in earlier comments.
