Another Colorado Mass Killing Prevented in April by Man with a Gun

On April 22nd of this year, members of the New Destiny Church were heading toward a massacre.

As the April 24, 2012, Huffington Post reported, Kiarron Parker, 29, drove erratically into the Church lot, crashed his car, got out, and, without reason, fired his gun at the pastor’s mother, who had rushed from the Church service to see what she could do to help. Parker opened fire and put five bullets into her, killing her.

Parker then started to enter the Church, where who knows how much more killing he would have done, when the pastor’s cousin, an off-duty cop named Antonio Milow, who could legally carry a gun, and was carrying, shot and killed Parker.

It’s easy (and absurd) to say the Aurora gun laws were working. The off-duty cop wasn’t there on official assignment.
Does this offer a clue about gun control?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Parker was a felon

In 2001, Parker was arrested in Aurora and charged with possession of cocaine for sale, according to court records. He pleaded guilty to felony drug possession in 2002 and was sentenced to three years in state prison and given credit for 19 months served.

Later in 2002, Parker pleaded guilty to illegal weapon possession, records state.


As I understand it, apparently in CO people cannot have firearms out in public. Which means Parker had one in his possession illegally, had one in public illegally and killed someone with it illegally.

So like what will more laws for people like him to break accomplish?

Thankfully the off duty Cop was carrying and present for this incident. I shudder tho think how many would have died if he was not present...

They're not taking away his

They're not taking away his rights. They're exercising their right to set rules on their private property. I am all for gun rights and the right to carry in public. However, if we are going to be consistent in our fundamental belief of liberty and property rights, we have to allow for private property owners to set the rules by which others may enter their establishment. If that includes a "no firearms" policy, that is their right. They may lose the business of someone like Glenn, but it's not correct, right, or fair to say that they are taking Glenn's rights away.

EDIT: The above comment was supposed to be in reply to Bozhi, but somehow it didn't end up there.

Thank you!

Remember guys - the gun control was on private property.

Perhaps the market will adjust to change it, perhaps not. Either way, we're not against property owners controlling guns on their property.

No one ever said the business did not have a right

Here is a link to the interview. I think this Glenn guy is great.

I agree with you

That business had to right to ban whatever they want to ban (within very restrictive government rules).

Those were Glenn's words and his opinion. He feels he has the right not to spend his money in any business that he feels takes away his right to defend himself. He said that business denied him of that right and he would not spend his money there.

I agree with him. He has that right. We all have the right to a certain extent to protest with our wallets.



Huge bump.

Holmes was trying to join a gun club, but rejected

Glenn Rotkovich said Holmes emailed an application to join the Lead Valley Range in Byers on June 25. Rotkovich followed up by calling Holmes' apartment to invite him to a mandatory orientation the following week. He said the phone message was "bizarre — guttural, freakish at best."

Glenn would not go to the theatre where the shooting took place because he said they would not let him bring in his weapon. He will not go in any business that will not let him carry his legal weapon.

Glenn has a carry permit, and only goes where he can carry and protect himself and his family. He will not support any business that will take away his rights.

Remember - they wouldn't have

Remember - they wouldn't have taken away their rights. You do not have the right to carry whatever you want onto other people's property.

That was Glenn's opinion

He feels that not being able to carry denies him his right to defend himself and his family, but his response to that is to not give that business any of his money.

He nor I ever said the business did not have that right.

Not appropriate for the news. It might lead people to believe they can provide their own safety.

Of course its the stories like

Of course its the stories like these that never get reported because it completely goes against any arguments for gun control.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
