    In one shooting a guy walks into a theater with a gun and a lot of people get killed. In another shooting a guy walks into an internet cafe with a gun, a 71yr old man pulls his own gun and the only person shot is the bad guy. You will never stop the bad or crazy people form doing what they do but you can take steps to protect yourself and others. If a few more people in the theater had legally been able to carry their guns a lot less people would have been killed. Don't let the gun control nuts fool you, guns in the hands of law abiding citizens can save lives and protect everyone.

    Even though the shooter was wearing body armor?

    No, the killer was protected, head to toe, ONCE AGAIN:

    Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said at a 1 p.m. press conference that in addition to being armed with several guns a gas mask and goggles, the suspect had “a throat protector, a groin protector and black tactical gloves.”

    Plus body armor, and a bullet proof vest. It is also in the news Facebook has FAN pages for the killer now, dozens posting their admiration for him. Ok, it is WND, "godlike' and other less than credible sources.

    Yep, body armor keeps you from dying, but it still feels like a kick in the nuts when the slug hits it. An attacker with body armor gets shot, he don't die but he does get knocked down, broken ribs, etc., which would then make it possible to subdue him.

    Maybe if you gave people their second Amendment rights they would of taken out this bastard. Gun control only stops people that follow the law. :eusa_boohoo:

    The bad guy doesn't care about the law.:eusa_silenced: Also, it is part of our constitutional rights. Think whatever you want, but unless you can replace the second amendment, you don't have a right to do anything else. Look at Mexico or Chicogo to see how good your idea's work.

    There can be no contingency plan for this other than staying home and locking yourself in. This tragedy is the price people are willing to pay for a wild, wild west mentality towards fire arms and it is only going to get worse.

    Actually that's a good question, was it body armor? and if it was is it legal to get? and if not, how did he get it?

    Laws only effect people who follow them. Killing people is already a crime, yet he ignored it, so he would just follow gun laws?

    Reports are he received many deliveries. Many drugs are illegal, yet people still get them.
