I give it 48-72 hours before every anti-gun politician, the Brady Campaign, and Bloomberg use this as a springboard to further limit law-abiding citizens' rights to keep and bear arms. How many of Mayor Bloomberg's guards do you think are packing heat? All of them.
Let's be honest about the situation. Bad guys will find ways to hurt innocent people. Criminals, by definition, flaunt the law, and will not follow ANY anti-gun limits set by governments, anywhere. Research shows that lawfully armed citizens are a deterrent to crime. More guns with more law abiding citizens = less crime. Period.
Even with police working at the theater last night, this guy found a way in and had time, reportedly, to empty magazines and reload. More limits aren't the answer, more people taking responsibility for the defense of themselves and their families... that's what we need.
