Scenario:I have never owned a gun but what into gun shops "inquring" how to use guns.In the ensuing days "legitimate" gun-dealers SELL to this NOVICE purchaser among other weapons AN ASSAULT RIFLE!!!.The news coverage is dominated by perfectly coiffed "reasonable" tv " suits" going on about the victims(rightfully so) and about the " counselling" so many will need.Where is the outrage over the retailing to a NON LAW ENFORCEMENT individual being sold an assault rifle as a NOVICE gun owner???And what mechanisms were in place to track such purchases to a neophyte??For that matter,what is the LEGITIMATE use of an assault weapon in the hands of a CIVILIAN ,let alone a NOVICE.Civilian use of handguns for " self protection" fall far short of the "freedom" to purchase and possess such devasting weapons.They are a SCOURGE to Law Enforcement and a nightmare for a "Civilized Society"!

Clearly with a "mere" handgun the carnage would have been minimized.It is time to stop selling these weapons of mass destruction to any Tom Dick or Harry.

A few typos in the first message I am speaking of the events in Colorado not about myself personally.I applaud Mayor Bloomberg for calling out Mr's Obama and Romney as to HOW they propose to combat the GUN VIOLENCE WHICH IS ENDEMIC IN OUR NATION TODAY??
