From John Cole: The Next 48 Hours Summarized For You In One Short Post
Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.
Yes, but guns make it very easy to kill people in large quantities. He would not have been able to stab 71 people.
Stop trying to politicize this tragedy! What we need are not fewer guns, but more guns. If only someone else in that theatre had had a gun, they would have been able to stop him in his tracks.
Yes. Nothing could go wrong with crossfire in a dark theatre. This is absurd. There is a clear lesson here, and we need to do something about the ease with which people get firearms.
There’s no lesson to be learned, the guy was crazy. You can’t stop every crazy person.
We could try to make it harder for crazy people to walk around with a shotgun, a rifle, two handguns, and gas cannisters.
I knew Obama and you liberals were coming for our guns. Second Amendment!
And after 48 hours, the topic will die down as me move on to the next scandal/tragedy du jour, and then we can have this same exact conversation again the next time someone murders a dozen people with a gun.
