Sounds like a classic fear reaction: not against killers in theatres but against legislators who feel a need to "do something" which will almost certainly include further restrictions against firearms.

I guess it takes a tragedy to bust them loose from their couches...

Screw "government action" ; It's never in the interest of the common citizen.

It’s a reaction that’s uniquely American, where every man’s a captain. But it’s also a reaction that has a long history in the West, a history we should be proud of.

And when I say the West I really mean everywhere in America. Because at one time or another in our history everywhere from the tidewater on the east...
