Only One Person to Blame in Colorado Movie Theater Shooting

There’s an old saying that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people”. That holds true in Aurora Colorado where James Holmes opened fire in a movie theatre killing 12 and injuring 59 people. On top of that horrific act, Holmes apparently booby trapped his apartment. Aurora police Chief Dan Oates told CBS Face the Nation they are now focusing on how Holmes got the materials used in the shooting.

Whenever these tragic shootings take place, there are always people crying about the gun control laws. It’s a great way to get your name in the paper if you’re a politician and among the latest to do it is New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. When last we heard from Bloomberg, he was trying to outlaw 32 ounce soda from being sold in his fair city.


No matter how hard you make it to buy a gun, if someone wants one bad enough they’re going to be able to get one. Think of all the illegal things that are so prevalent and readily available in this country, drugs, sports betting, prostitution, you name it, you can get it.


If you really want to stop the next person from ever doing something like this, show them what happens to the last person. Is there any doubt that James Holmes is the right guy? If not, then a speedy trial, and hopefully the death penalty. I can’t think of a case that would be more qualified. I would post the execution online so that anyone who ever contemplates anything like this again would see their consequences.


I’m reading about his background, his life, I really don’t care about any of that. I just care about what happens next. I pray if for some reason, Holmes survives this, he never ends up with the media specials that CNN and Barbara Walters did on the man who shot John Lennon. But as far as gun control, I think it’s time we stop blaming the guns and start blaming the person who pulls the trigger.
