I hope they all "feel" safer now, because in reality they're not.

I feel deep and true sorrow for the families of the slain, but this knee jerk reaction is not the way. I truly hope that cooler heads will prevail and this legislation will be over turned in court. Its a sad testimonial to the system when such an issue must be decided in a court. When confronted by a weeping crowd I can understand how emotion can over ride good sense. I sympathize with the relatives of the slain, but the facts are that the crime was perpetrated by a mentally unbalanced person that was hell bent on murder. Nothing can stop a mentally unbalanced mind once it has set its course of murder except outside intervention by force. What that force might be, could be anything from family intervention, law intervention, or as a last resort, a bullet fired in self defense. Legislation while needed in constructive minuscule doses is a good thing but not the massive knee jerk reaction we see here. The immediate answer is not to enact blanket legislation to curtail the rights of the common law abiding citizen. The answer lays elsewhere. This legislation is just plain wrong by any account!
