    While Utah and most states arm themselves like unto a combat situation, expecting to execute the next criminal (who by the way may be their own relative, neighbour or friend) is what the arresting officer had to say about Mr Holmes who with his 2nd amendment right killed 12 people. "When officers arrived at the theater, they found Holmes standing next to his car. At first, Officer Jason Oviatt said, he thought Holmes was a policeman because of how he was dressed but then realized he was just standing there and not rushing toward the theater"
    With so many people arming themselves with weapons and ammunition in the USA sadly when officers arrive at a shooting God forbid....the police will have difficulty identifying the shooters as everyone will have a gun and everyone being suspicious of each other. I am afraid that lessons from the past will not be learned and many more lives will be lost for the sake of gun ownership. The real issue is the mental health pandemic in America. Instead of addressing the problem they feed the fear. America is on its way to a self-conscribed bloodbath. They replace God with a gun.

    Gun Free Zones - the desired result has been achieved.

    Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, the Colorado theater...

    Now, if the object was to protect the innocent, we'd follow the tried and proven strategy of ensuring they are armed and well trained to protect themselves and their loved ones.

    Politicians surround themselves with gunslingers or carry guns themselves. They're not stupid. They just hope you are.
