Why more people should carry guns

What happened in Colorado is very sad, but the thing is, had more people owned guns they would of been able to bring him down them selves and hopefully not as many people would of died or been injured.

More guns would deter criminals.

If more people owned guns and were allowed to carry them in all public places, less crimes like this would happen. With the exception of a few crazy ones, most criminals wouldn't even attempt to rob or kill others if they knew there was a good chance of having 10-15 guns pointed back at them.

Even if a lot

of people in the theater did own a gun, they are not allowed in the theater, you know, like a "No guns allowed inside" sign that tells everyone that the people "past these doors" are defenseless. I still am waiting to see the surveillance video, what is the hold up? I hope the chain of evidence is still intact. The media mentioned the surveillances video a whopping ZERO times, yet this is a “case closed” incident.

It is true you can disallow others from carrying their guns on your property. This is why you have places like this theater that hangs the sign "No guns allowed inside." They are perfectly within their right to do this but the consequence is they are now liable for the safety of all who are in their theater.
