How many would have died in Colorado if half those people had their own guns?
In American counties where home ownership requires owning a gun, home break-ins are almost zero.
Murderers are cowards. They only want to kill those who are defenseless. They do NOT go up against more powerful opponents. Or, they use trust to betray those they hate and kill them.
Probably twice or three times as many... It wasn't just guns, it was tear gas and smoke too.
How many would have died if you couldn't buy assault rifles at the corner store?
A shotgun and a hunting rifle are only called "assault rifles" to manipulate your reaction. Read "Rules for Radicals" by Satanist Saul Alinsky. It is a handbook of how to lie, cheat & deceive. Obama taught that book 3 years in Chicago. READ IT.
My reactions are my own. I know what a shotgun and a hunting rifle are. The AR-15 is neither. As for Alinsky, I don't waste my time on conspiracy theory nonsense.
I'd say it would have been much worse. A room packed with a bunch of people and you're trying to figure out who the right person is to shoot after all the tear gas and smoke filled the room, it wouldn't end well.
I would imagine far more, I think a better question would be, how many people would of died if he hadn't been able to buy a gun in the first place.
