“I wish the NRA would make up its mind. On one hand they lobby for laws to stand your ground, and on the other hand they lobby for assault rifles. The very term assault means to violently take someone else’s ground. They should lobby to control the amount of ammunition a citizen can store in a residential area. I would like to know if my neighbor has enough ammo and powder stored to blow my house off its foundation. The carrier of his homeowner’s insurance would like to know along with the fire department just for the safety of the community. I guess that makes me a survivalist.”

“Hey, liberals! Quit blaming Republicans for the Colorado shooting! That is the fault of the man who carried it out, not political commentators!”

“Why do ‘law abiding citizens’ need weapons of war?”

“I guess now I can add ABC News to the list of those with no integrity after they falsely reported, with no actual vetting, that the movie theater shooter was a tea party member. They sound like NBC. No wonder the ratings for network news is in the toilet. It can’t be trusted.”

“The events in Aurora, Colorado once again prove that NRA stands for No Restrictions on Arms.”

“There is a difference between crazy and evil. The movie theater shooter, who does deserve to be called by name, is evil. His behavior in court is just a poor act to try and claim he is crazy.”

“While the left-wingers are blaming the Colorado shootings on everybody from George Bush, Mitt Romney, the tea party, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and the NRA on down, has anyone in Washington, D.C. looked to see if this assault rifle was one of the ‘Fast and Furious’ guns? But knowing how Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, has misled Congress and the American people about that failed operation, could we ever expect to hear the truth about where this rifle came from since there have been so many lies from the administration?”

“The killing of 12 people and injuring of numerous men, women, and children in the shooting in Aurora, Colorado, was a horrific crime. A lot of people are wondering how this could happen. We are living in a society that has increasingly become more and more violent. All kinds of crimes are happening every day to men, women, and innocent children and babies. Some may ask, ‘What is happening to our society?’ ‘Why did this happen?’ Most movie studios are trying to outdo each other with more and more violence, sex, and profanity in the movies they make. Television shows and video games have become increasingly violent and even some cartoons have. All of these things affect a person’s mind and desensitizes them. Today there is a disregard for human life. We have become a desensitized society.”
