"With all the family has suffered throughout an ordeal that now appears one created by the government as another ill-conceived publicity coup along the lines of so many others, rather than a quest for law and justice, one more draconian consequence will follow Rick, Terri and Ryin Reese for the rest of their days should they be convicted. As per United States Code, anyone 'convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year' is a prohibited person, banned by federal law from owning a gun." ...

"Everyone thought the Gabby Giffords shooting was just what the anti-gun crowd needed to finally get new gun control legislation enacted. Well, how’d that work out? A few neutered attempts at magazine capacity limits and some crazy talk about making it illegal to carry guns near members of Congress. What did you expect with the same old players uttering the same idiotic soundbites. New York representative Carolyn McCarthy’s spokesman sums up their excruciatingly painful logic: 'Running out of bullets is kind of a critical point where the shooting stops. If there are less rounds in a clip, usually you can expect that there will be a lot less casualties.' It doesn’t take a rocket scientist . . ." ...

But the deeper issue is that many millions of Americans — a small majority, according to a recent New York Times poll — either support or accept the premise that 'the government' cannot be trusted with all the guns and that they therefore need to keep weapons themselves."

"Michael Bloomberg has stepped up his calls for tighter gun laws in the wake of last month's Colorado massacre, but to his frustration, not many people seem to be listening—especially not President Obama and Mitt Romney. The argument that gun carnage can be stopped with existing laws—as both candidates insist—is 'preposterous,' the New York City mayor tells the Huffington Post, but the 'irrational' gun lobby has made it too daunting for politicians to even discuss gun control. The gun lobby has 'created this aura that they are so powerful, if you don't go with them, they'll take you out and destroy your ability to feed your family,' he says." ...

"The murder rampage in Aurora, Colorado, has caused some to conclude that had more people in the movie theater been armed, perhaps 40 people would have been killed, and that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution 'applies to ONLY those people who are in the militias.'"

"I cannot follow the convoluted illogic which concludes that more armed people would have resulted in more deaths. If the same crime had been attempted in Arizona ... it is likely that one or more armed citizens would have shot the perpetrator before anywhere near 12 people had been killed. Prohibiting the carrying of arms in a location only ensures that someone with a murderous intent will have a risk-free environment in which to commit the crime." ...
