There are only 2 ways to stop mass shooting events like Aurora: 1) ban and confiscate ALL guns in the country and seal the borders so no more get in, or 2) Make sure there is nowhere in the country where a gunman would not have to encounter armed opposition. Both are impossible. Therefore, we will have to tolerate SOME risk of such an event. The 1st method cannot be even partially used without violating everyone's right to self-defense - BIG down side. The 2nd can easiy be used simply by making concealed carry easier and more widely acceptable - no down side. Sooo...is there a logical thinker in the house?

1) Liberal pols would exempt themselves and their bodyguards from the ban.

Yes, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” – The Second Amendment

Whether it is college campuses, Amish communities, or other gun-free zones, bloodthirsty maniacal men will find a way to quench their cravings. Therefore, gun control laws do not work -- because they are based on the erroneous assumption that criminals will obey the law. They don’t and won’t; hence leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless in the face of danger, as so happened that tragic July evening at the Aurora, Colorado movie...
