    I'm all for gun rights, but situations like this are going to make it harder and harder.

    Colorado has virtually no laws restricting hand gun or rifle purchases.

    You have to pass a test to be able to drive in every state in the Union, you should have to pass some sort of test to buy a weapon of mass destruction.....

    Driving is a privilege that can be granted or denied via the whim of the apparatus. Possessing firearms is a right and is not subject to the vagaries of government.

    Why every American should think of carrying a gun.

    Now I must admit carrying one into a fun place like a movie theater probably would not.

    But now this has happen changed my mind.

    Believe gun training should be part of school or required somehow. believe every person should serve the government in someway, learning gun handling/safety

    Could lives be saved had more people packed a gun..? yeah knows will never know but makes ya wonder.

    Sad, and very tragic ... I, too wait for movies to be released to dvd, don't like crowds, and most theaters are like planes - too close together and uncomfortable seats, I can lounge in the recliner @ home ... in jammies ....

    The 10pm news said that all of the Denver theaters were sold out. I live near Hampden and 25 so its very likely I would have gone to Aurora if I hadn't decided to stay home.

    Time for everyone to start wearing guns on their hips . . .

    My wife and I usually go to that theater ... a lot of times for the midnight releases ... it was really lucky we weren't there last night cause I have family in town, scary stuff. We have received so many texts and phone calls this morning.

    what is crazy in all of this is I grew up there and went to high school there. That theater was down the street walking distance. But I dont know whats wrong with people these days? Shooting innocent people up. Seems like he dropped out of med school last month. Grew up in SD and the news said it was a wealthy area.
    My prayers go out to all the friends and family of the victims

    I believe if people choose to carry they should be armed at the highest rate possible. For myself I would say 95% of the time if I am going anywhere I have a gun on me. If we could predict when things like this would happen we wouldn't go but since we can't I'll give myself and my family a fighting chance against the bad guys.

    I think that if we all carry guns for protection we would have wiped this guy out before he had a chance to do the damage he has done. I can't wait for someone to take out a crazy. So sorry for everyone that was lost and their families.

    The real facts are...
    Lots of bad guys are stopped by a good guy with a gun. But, the media never reports about it when it does happen.
    Condolences to the victims..
