    I assume we agree that what happened in Aurora counts as A Very Bad Thing.

    •  So your answer is to blame the victims. (2+ / 0-)

      If only they had shot back? Right? Only in that scenario that would have been impossible. This was a combat situation involving victims who did not know they were going to be in combat. The only one prepared for combat was the shooter. No one else knew what they were going to encounter. At least soldiers now that there is always a possibility that they will be shot at by someone. But in a movie theater in suburban Denver.

      If the shooter did not have a gun he could shoot people now could he.

        I don't even blame the irresponsible, borderline dangerous naivete of the anti-gun crowd for what happened in Aurora.  If we need to issue blame, James E. Holmes and any partner he might have had can shoulder it all.
