    APNewsBreak: Colo gov says time to talk gun laws | US National Headlines | Comcast


    Colorado's Gov. John Hickenlooper said "the time is right" for state lawmakers to consider gun control measures, offering his firmest stance in the aftermath of several high-profile shootings, including a movie theater rampage in suburban Denver, that have shocked the nation.
    Hickenlooper did not call for specific legislation, but did give a strong indication of what kind of debates and proposals he'd like to see.

    "When you look at what happened in Aurora, a great deal of that damage was from the large magazine on the AR-15 (rifle). I think we need to have that discussion and say, `Where is this appropriate?'"

    Carefully chosen words of a politically correct asswipe....

    Shootings like that are just the price we pay for our freedom to own guns. It's only a big deal to the families of those involved.

    With the left no one is responsible for their actions, the only thing left is to blame the tool. Of course a tool is only as good or bad as the person using it. Also they can't criminalize the citizens who already have the weapons and hi cap magazines, they can only prohibit future retail sales. When are the commies going to realize this horse has already left the barn?

    Correct. 100 round drum mags are notoriously unreliable.

    You can say that about car accidents as well, or providing electricty it each persons home without have a qualified electrian onsite.

    You attempt at sarcasm is noted, however the only complete solution, banning all firearms would not work either. At that point you would have criminals making them in machine shops (hey ban those too!!!) and nothing but the police (a few minutes to hours away) between your unarmed self and someone who wanted a gun so bad they made the fucking thing.

    Good luck Hickenlicker. The NRA will squash your gun control attempt like a bug.

    It's not sarcasm at all. And I'm glad you mentioned car accidents. I almost continued my post with that comparison myself. Car accidents are only a big deal to the families involved also. To the rest of us, unless it blocks traffic when we need to get somewhere, it is nothing.

    BTW, I also am a multiple gun owner.
