The Dark Knight Movie Massacre & Why I Carry a Gun Everywhere I Go


I would venture to guess that the folks filing in to see the latest Batman installment in Aurora, Colorado last Thursday evening didn’t figure on over 70 of them getting shot before the credits rolled. The last count I received before filing this column was 12 dead and 59 wounded.

As the news starting pouring in about what happened in the theater this week when Satan’s spawn James Holmes donned Kevlar and a small battery of weapons and opened fire on an unsuspecting crowd, I kept thinking, “One fast-thinking and trained person who was armed/licensed with a concealed weapon could have stopped that SOB right in his tracks before the body count skyrocketed.”

Yep, the armed citizen could have either killed him, sent him running for cover, or at least diverted his fire away from the masses and toward their person. Some readers, no doubt, are saying, “Well that would be stupid. What if that citizen got shot trying to protect others?” To that I reply: Well, Dinky, if they would have been shot and killed at least they would have died a hero. Have you ever heard of the term “hero”?

    When I arrived in Nam,we had to carry our personal weapon wherever we went outside the company area. What a pain to carry an M-16 to the PX. I feel the same now carrying my revolver wherever I go. But as a good American, it is my duty to take care of others who cannot take care of themselves.

      I never served in combat, but the Army taught me how to shoot. I also carry everywhere I go. Just think how things could have changed if Colorado were a CCW State?

    What the dufus libs don’t get is…take weapons from law abiding people and the bad people with rule…much like Thug Team Obama and his commies. Disarm the people and they are sheep ready for the slaughter. I too, am old viet vet, and will protect my family, country, neighbors from all foreign and domestic Obama communists. Be prepared for Obama nazis.

      How long did it take for the police to respond in Colorado? About 5 minutes? A 9mm round would have dropped the killer in 5 seconds…that includes drawing the weapon, training it on the killer’s head and pulling the trigger (several times). The second amendment rules.

    Wonder why we don’t hear any of this in the lame stream liberal media….where else would a nut case go to shoot people? In a gun free zone, of course! These libs get it…they just want our guns. It’s a another control issue for them!

    Ephesians 6
    “12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. “
    We have allowed this evil by turning away in mass from our Creator.
    We have allowed evil to be called tolerable and good, thereby forfeiting His blessing and protection.
    If we do turn to Him (in mass) and turn from wickedness, we are toast.

      From “Leading The Way” website:
      Join Them to Pray for America
      “God Save America”
      “The July prayer focus for God Save America is praise and thanksgiving to God for the Christian foundation of our nation.
      Together, let us give thanksgiving to God for the sacrifice of our Founding Fathers. These men signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 at great personal risk. Together, they pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to God and each other for the foundation of this nation. The freedoms and blessings that we enjoy as a nation flow from their sacrifices.
      Soon after the establishment of our nation, these same men warned of the consequences of removing God as the firm foundation of this nation:

      “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever.” — Thomas Jefferson (1781)

      Let us also give thanks to God for the freedoms we have as Americans. These freedoms include, but are not limited to: the freedom to assemble, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, and the freedom of religion without interference from the government.
      Outlined in the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution of the United States of America, these freedoms are based upon Christian principles. Our Founding Fathers were granted vision and wisdom from God to create these enduring documents.”
