Gun Sales Up Following Batman Shooting

Gun Sales Up Following Batman Shooting
PHOTOS.COM
Over the weekend, 2,887 people in Colorado were approved to buy a gun.

The Aurora, Colo., shooting has ratcheted up debates about gun laws. But in the State where the shooting occurred, something else has ratcheted up: gun sales.

Background checks needed to buy a gun legally are up 43 percent after James Holmes’ alleged shooting spree. Prosecutors say that Holmes, the alleged gunman, purchased all his weapons and ammunition legally. In the aftermath of the attack, citizens of Aurora have taken to gun shops to buy their weapons legally as well, to protect themselves against people like Holmes.

Over the weekend, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations, 2,887 people were approved to buy a gun. Gun shop owners have also reported an increase in sales.

Dick Rutan, owner of Gunners Den, a gun shop in Arvada, Colo., told The Denver Post: “What they’re saying is: They want to have a chance. They want to have the ability to protect themselves and their families if they are in a situation like what happened in the movie theater.”

Jake Meyers, who works at Rocky Mountain Guns and Ammo in Parker, Colo., told The Post: “A lot of it is people saying, ‘I didn’t think I needed a gun, but now I do.’ When it happens in your backyard, people start reassessing — ‘Hey, I go to the movies.’ ”

According to reports, gun sales have also increased in Florida and Oregon.

Two other events in recent history sparked an increase in gun sales: the election of President Barack Obama and the shooting in Arizona that injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killed six others.

Since the Aurora shooting, media outlets have been flooded with stories about gun control. Rapper-turned-actor Ice-T even got in on the action, defending the right to bear arms.

“The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. … If somebody wants to kill people, they don’t need a gun to do it. … The United States is based on guns,” he said during an interview with Channel 4 London.

    IF YOU ARE NOT PLANNING TO CARRY A GUN INTO A PUBLIC PLACE LIKE A THEATER, THIS INCIDENT SHOULD NOT CAUSE YOU TO PURCHASE A GUN, NOW – YOU SHOULD ALREADY OWN A GUN(S) IF YOU BELIEVE IN GUN OWNERSHIP. VIOLENT CRIME HAPPENS WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT. HOPE IN BEING PREPARED IS THE ONLY TRUE SECURITY YOU HAVE.

    • eddie47d

      Nutjob William Pearce of Az said that the theater audience were all cowards for not being armed and shooting back. James Holmes did his killing very quickly and then moved on not allowing anyone to react whether with or without a weapon. He was also arrested extremely fast by the Aurora police who arrived within 4 1/2 minutes. The last thing the theater goers needed was a shootout within the dark complex with all the confusion going on. People were bobbing up and down and scrambling in every which direction so a movie goer with a gun could have caused even more carnage not knowing where the shooter was coming from. These incidences are not like someone breaking into your house and you have time to react and take the burglar/rapist out.

      • E. Blake

        The truth is you would have been arrested if you would have even tried to stop Holmes form going in the side door, even with a ccw.
        Shock revelation: City of Aurora, Colorado would have arrested anyone
        who stopped the Batman massacre with a concealed weapon

        http://www.naturalnews.com/036549_Aurora_concealed_carry_gun_confiscation.html

      • Gordon

        This theater is a GUN FREE ZONE, posted on the entrance. So what about law abiding gun owners leaving their gun in the car????????

      • Gordon

        Blake, Mike Adams is getting flakier and flakier with his rantings, and prone to sensationalism and misdirection. Just keep watching him closely and see for yourself.

      • Gordon

        Blake, did you notice that Mike Adams is now claiming that the shooter was a mind control victim of the federal government, placed there to further the gun confiscation efforts?

        • E. Blake

          No I did not, I missed that, but I will check it out.
          thanks for bring it to my attention

    • E. Blake

      There is only one problem with all the gun buying… “THE LAWS IN AURORA”:
      According to current Colorado law
      (*http://www.coloradoceasefire.org/munilaws.htm*), it is illegal to
      carry a concealed weapon in all the following cities:
      *Aurora, Boulder, Broomfield, Colorado Springs, Denver, Englewood,
      Lakewood, Littleton, Longmont, Northglenn, Pueblo, Thornton,
      Westminster, Wheat Ridge.

      It is illegal to even OWN a large number of firearms in Thornton and
      Lafayette. In Aurora, it is illegal to carry a firearm in a vehicle!
      Thus, even driving to a movie theater with a firearm in your own car
      makes you a criminal.**
      *
      *These laws did not stop James Holmes****from driving with a loaded gun
      in his car, along with explosives that were also found in his car. Once
      again, this demonstrates that gun control laws only disarm the
      publicwhile allowing criminals to have “free reign” over a completely
      helpless public.
      *
      Here are some of the other gun control laws that already exist in
      Aurora: (*http://www.coloradoceasefire.org/munilaws.htm)*

      *1. “Dangerous weapon” includes firearm
      2. Revocation of license for furnishing a firearm to a minor or someone
      under the influence.
      3. Window displays cannot include firearms with barrels less than 12
      inches long.
      4. Unlawful to carry concealed “dangerous weapon”
      5. Unlawful to discharge firearms, unless by law enforcement on duty or
      on shooting range.
      6. Unlawful to possess firearm while under the influence of intoxicant
      7. Unlawful to have loaded firearm in motor vehicle.
      8. Unlawful for a juvenile to possess a firearm.*

      By definition criminals do not abide by such laws

      *Notice, again, that none of these laws stopped James Holmes.***

      By definition*criminals do not follow these laws*.

      Thus, the only real impact of gun disarmament of the public is to create
      yet more victims by making sure the honest, law-abiding citizenry is
      completely defenseless against criminals.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Best suggestion is to move from idiot enclaves of the Leftists. CO has concealed carry laws but the towns you mention prohibit concealed carry so therefore those towns are disobeying their state’s laws.

      • Mike in MI

        E. Blake -
        Good analysis and comments. I wonder if the liberals have any ability to comprehend the gravity of the situation we face. As if taking away the right to own guns or ammo is going to stop their manufacture, acquisition and use.
        Last night that verbal shotgun Tammy Holder was on with Hannity disputing with Michelle Malkin.
        I got sick of seeing her spit and drool all over while trying to articulate some idiotic liberal cliches I flipped the channel next door to CNBC where they were showing a documentary about the uncivil war in Mexico against the 4 drug cartels. Why does it not occur to these brain dead, mental castrates that those cartels would love to see us disarm citizens. Hell, Obama has now got them very well equipped and supplied to invade and overcome as much of the U.S. as they want – if our citizens can’t drive them back. I think you can pretty well discount Obama doing anything to fight them off. They have no qualms about procuring and using the weapons in slaughter and mayhem.
        He has done everything he needs to to make the passage of illegals easier, safer and more comfortable – and to assure their stay here is facilitated in EVERY way.
        The treasonous, ghetto conman, scumbag.

        • E. Blake

          Mike in MI
          You have nailed it, this is exactly what they would like to see, These morons can’t seem to grasp the idea of why you can’t have a foriegn nation for a president of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. And some jackass decided to convince the ignorant mexicans that the land was thiers and we stold it. What we have here is a ticking time bomb, and we had all better be ready for what they push to happen next…

      • my 2¢ worth

        It’s like the lock on your doors.. it’s there to repel the honest, law-abiding citizenry.

      • Gordon

        move where you want to. There are plenty of rural pretty areas that are livable. Trouble is the drug dealers and theives are so thick where I am, that the local police dept REFUSES to prosecute them even if the have a written confession. My house was robbed 3 times, and the investigator told me it was my fault that I wasn’t at home to prevent it. The police chief also told me that if they got the case to court the judge would probably throw it out. Were talkinig multiple felonies for each of 4 persons, $40,000 in loss, in a single robbery. One guy went to jail on 10 other felonies and was out in 8 months, right back to work.

        • E. Blake

          It’s bound to get worse, until people have had enough, just keep in mind Barry Soetoro is letting more of these thugs come accross the border, and giving them amnesty, medical coverage, EBT card, and a cash grant, so they can have lots of time to rob you… The muslime’s have already ceased control of key cities in Michigan. The mexicans have taken over towns in California, for just a couple examples. And on top of that the libs have brain washed the white population that 1.5 kids is enough, mean while the muslimes, and the mexicans are multilying like rabbits. i would be getting a couple of mean a$$ junk yard dogs, and arming myself, or you could just pack up and move.

    • Speak2Truth

      And if you plan on carrying in public places, GET PROPER TRAINING! You’ll want to win the gunfight while minimizing the hazard to bystanders.

      http://GunTrainers.net

      Find a local instructor with an easy zip code search – or encourage your local instructor to get a free listing. A well armed populace is a good defense and a responsible Armed Citizen gets proper training in the use of arms.

      • ChristyK

        I strongly recommend “FrontSight” for gun training. The classes are expensive, but if you sign up for their email list, they have specials and memberships that save you a ton. The 4 day defensive handgun course I took was unbelievable. I never would’ve guessed that my shooting and comfort with a gun could improve so dramatically. They not only covered basic shoooting, but clearing malfunctions, clearing a house, dealing with a hostage taker, dealing with one vs multiple assailants, etc. Unbelievable. I’d recommend it to everyone, experienced or newbie.

        • E. Blake

          This is all fine for us adults, but I might suggest we arm our kids with high intensity led flashlights to carry in their pockets, and flash a would be attacker in the eyes, and allow for enough time to escape. As suggested by a former seal member.
          Just be sure your kids are to understand that they should not use these on anyone else and not to take it out of the pocket unless they need to, other wise some liberal teacher will confinscate it.

        Actually the courses at Frontsight.com are not all that expensive if you get one of the deals they offer email subscribers from time to time In fact they are planning a big sale this weekend starting on Friday so go to the site and get signed up for email alerts or just check on Friday.

    • eddie47d

      Well, E Blake you are running the same old excuses especially about criminals being able to get guns. The problem with your thinking is that James Holmes wasn’t a criminal and he still got a hold of those weapons and bomb making materials. That in itself makes the 2nd Amendment look like a bad law (which it isn’t). If the die hard keep pushing their pro gun agenda attitude we will continue to have bloodshed over the extremely easy access in buying multiple clip weapons. This issue has gone far beyond defending the home and property , hunting,or even in defense of this nation. The stubbornness on the right has instilled in all Americans that guns are as much a necessity as having a cell phone on your person at all times. We lived very well without cell phones and even having a gun in our home . Now we are labeled as out of touch and even as cowards by people like ex Senator Wm Pearce of Arizona . I probably take the opposite view that you take. I believe that the unregulated supply of ammunition and high capacity weaponry make it too easy for good and bad people alike to take advantage of doing harm to others. James Holmes proved that you don’t have to be a criminal to acquire such madness. So that all this easy access is the problem and its those on the right peddling this problem and even encouraging it. .

      • E. Blake

        I did not write what you are responding to!

      • E. Blake

        And just what do you plan to do to protect yourself when the welfare cases come for your food, when everything collapses? Call the police? Don’t you think they are going to be protecting their own families? You leave a lot to chance. the cell phone can leave the guns, NO!

      • Gordon

        The fastest way to shoot down (pun intended) a liberal anti-gunner is to get them to state their reasons for gun confiscation from citizens, etc….. then equate the misuse of guns to their automobile. When they hear how some people are licensed and insured but still are incompetent drivers who do all manner of DELIBERATE violations, or on the verge of a heart attack or stroke or seizure at any second….. attack them into saying that there should only be ambulances and cop cars…. if you do it right, it makes them totally speechless. All I can say is that no liberal has ever gotten into the gun debate with me a second time.

      • Gordon

        I have to jump in here eddie. Facts are that taking guns away becasue a few commit horrible deeds is like taking your car away from you because granpa had a heart attack and killed a few, or that somebody pulled out in front of someone on the 60 mph highway….. or that some jackhoff got drunk and hit somebody head on., etc. YOU EDDIE SHOULD NOT HAVE A CAR. Fact is I was hit head on by 4 drunk teens but my only regret is that it was my favorite (rare) car. I also am in pain 16 years later, and those kids have long forgotten about me. Do we all still drive cars. You betch, and I never think a second thought about it. Cars and probable wrecks don’t concern me at all. Neither do criminals with guns. I am prepared to do what is necessary 24/7.

    • Gordon

      I guess nobody noticed that this particular theater is/was a GUN FREE ZONE. So law abiding citizens leave their weapon in the car? How does that help?

  • http://skydogskennels@sbcglobal.net charlene

    its time to say only outlaws will have guns.he could have just blow it up, then are you going to deminize the hardward store for selling ele.wireing, or metal pipping. if people going to kill somsone they will. and they say call the cops. they dont show up, it takes and hr. for them or more to get to you. so people better learn to depend on yourself, cause no, one comeing to help you.and if the clown gets back in , ben over and kiss you tail good by.

    • 45caliber

      char:

      Not only does it take awhile for the police to show up when called, it isn’t a requirement for them to immediately come in to save you. There have been several cases where a cop has sat and watched a crime happen and not even call it in because there might be some danger to him.

      • eddie47d

        That has changed after Columbine in Colorado where police stood by waiting for orders. In Aurora and elsewhere a policman is now required to take immediately action if a life can be saved. Police were at the theater within 4 1/2 minutes and caught the killer fairly quickly.

        • E. Blake

          4 1/2 minutes after the fact!
          And this is always the case.

    GUN CONTROL- It’s not about guns. It’s about control. A “gun free zone” is a “target rich environment” for murdering psychopaths. A simple truth that liberals just can’t seem to understand. I dare all you gun control advocates to put a “this is a gun free zone” in your yard.

    • eddie47d

      “I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.” – Barack Obama

      It’s people like that who create this sort of massacre by disarming the intended victims when the Bad Guy comes along. But Obama takes it a step further.

      Obama voted NO against bill to prohibit civil liability actions from being brought or continued against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, or importers of firearms or ammunition for damages, injunctive or other relief resulting from the misuse of their products by others.

      He fails to take into account all the positive uses of the gun to defend innocents – and the idea the gun manufacturers should be REWARDED for that! For example, last week when the 71 year old man drew his concealed pistol and opened fire on two armed thugs in the internet cafe.

      • 45caliber

        E.

        There is a lot of talk by various libs about “banning assault weapons”.

        Just for everyone’s information, the government has developed a definition of “assault weapon”.

        It is: “any weapon that has been used anywhere in the world at any time in combat.”

        In other words, the rock you mentioned IS an assault weapon. Just as all other items are. Why do you think the libs are trying so hard to bann “assault weapons”? They want not only the look-alike rifles but everything else too.

      • eddie47d

        Now you are all back debating this silly nonsense to glorify high powered weapons and clips. The rock has nothing to do with anything and the world is full of rocks of every size imaginable. Homes and roads are built with those rocks so put the item in perspective. A butcher knife is not bought to kill someone and is used to cut up tonight’s dinner. Occasionally some angry wife might slice and dice up a husband but that is rare. Its real purpose is well known as is with the rock. High capacity weaponry is bought and sold for the sole purpose of killing someone. When you buy that weapon it is for the taking of a life and each and every buyer knows that. Some like to say we should label cars as a weapon because people get killed on the road. The difference is obvious in that people don’t buy cars to kill someone but they do buy a gun to kill someone. That is something that the pro gun folks refuse to comprehend but still go for the phony comparisons. While we are on the subject: those in favor of loose gun laws (if any at all) like to say we should be like the Swiss. Okay I understand the concept of defending ones nation from foreign invaders and that is what their law implies and for no other use. Those who are under civil defense obligations in Switzerland are strictly regulated. If not a part of the defense you are not allowed to have those high capacity weapons on your possession. These weapons must be turned in or modified by law to only fire a single shot. No person (except rapid response swat teams) are even allowed to have any ammo stored in their homes. They take weapons very seriously and would never allow such recklessness that is allowed in this country.

        • E. Blake

          YOU ARE A FOOL! Every person on here that has one did not buy it to kill anyone, but we all sure have a lot of fun on the weekends.

      • Buster the Anatolian

        “These weapons must be turned in or modified by law to only fire a single shot. No person (except rapid response swat teams) are even allowed to have any ammo stored in their homes.”

        And what proof do you have of this eddie? Last I read the Swiss must have a certain minimum ammount of government ammunition in their house (100 rounds perhaps) along with their government issued weapon ready for them to grab and take with them if called to duty. I have never read anywhere that their weapons must be converted to single shot and I have read a lots on the Swiss and their guns. One other thing there is no limits on them purchasing ammunition personaly for use in target practice.

    My daughter recently graduated Med school and moved to a city in north Georgia called Kennesaw. I was worried with her living so far away from home and being a young female living all alone. After living there for maybe a month she called one night and asked if I had a gun she could have , well after asking “what’s wrong” she told me nothing, but it was law in Kennesaw that every household have a firearm. I told her of course I do , what would you like ? My daughter was raised around guns and I knew she was very capable in handling one. I did some research and found that in Kennesaw there had been only one murder since 2007 . Knowing this , even though I wish she was still here under Dads protection , I did find some comfort . I think this is one of the best arguments one could have when talking about gun control. It’s been proven in Kennesaw which BTW is just north of Atlanta !

    • 45caliber

      THG:

      Some years ago, a city in Illinois banned all guns in town. Kennesaw passed a law REQUIRING all households to have one shortly after. About five years ago, they compared the crime rates of the two cities.

      The other city had numerous burglaries, murders, rapes, etc. Kennesaw had three speeding tickets and one run stop sign.

      Don’t worry about your daughter. She is safer there than almost anywhere in the US.

      • THG

        45 , Thanks for the support , and that’s exactly the point I was trying to make . I can’t understand why liberals have such a hard time understanding there’s less crime where gun laws are more lax. The writing is on the wall or in the books. It has been proven over and over . Just take a look at a city where hand guns are comepletely illegal such as New York City . 1,000′s of murders a year.

    Well, looks like the slippery slope of Megan’s Law is continuing, and the idiocy is spilling into the right to bear arms. Criminals are not going to continue to follow the rules no matter how many laws you put into place to make yourself feeeeeel good. Got news for you anti-gun folks and Megan’s Law supporters: Thinking with your emotions is NOT thinking; it’s feeling! There is a time that you need to be logical about this; you have to put on your thinking cap, damn it! I am sick and tired of these laws being passed because people don’t feel safe enough. Welcome to life. Life is not safe. Stop calling for your own enslavement in the name of public safety! Abolish these laws NOW.

    • E. Blake

      Well said Franklyn

    • eddie47d

      There would be no debate over the right to bear arms if the pro gun folks weren’t so adamant in spreading the glorification of high powered weaponry into every aspect of our culture.(some are no more than anti-government preppers who see conspiracies under every rock) That any kind of weaponry in any place and any time is acceptable practice. You are bound to have these continued killings when the police can’t even stop a hoodlum from roaming the streets with open carry laws to protect them. No wonder these menacing citizens can roam freely because of their 2nd Amendment rights. Yup they have to Constitution to back them up because those pro gunners say they do. These free for all gun nuts make it very clear that nothing can be done until after the slaughter has taken place and then they only emotional cry out “if only more guns were allowed”. How absurd! If 180 millions guns or more aren’t enough then what will it take to satisfy your thirst. I would say Frank is the one who has abused the meaning of the 2nd Amendment and high powered weapons have become nothing more than a tool of excitement for the masses.

        Eddie, The gun Nuts as you call them DONT glorify assault weapons. They just don’t feel they should be outlawed like the antigunners do. The Gun right people think you should be able to own any kind of firearm that you want. But in owning a firearm you are held accountable at a higher level than most. If you will honestly admit you have seen numerous posts that advise people to GET TRAINING before purchasing a firearm. TO BE RESPONSIBLE gun owners. You Haven’t read any Posts that say go out and get machineguns and whack your neighbors. The gun right advocates post to have firearms to PROTECT your SELF, FAMILY, Neighbors. There will always be people that want to do you harm. There are over 2000 gun laws on the books Eddie. Holmes didn’t break 1 of them till he decided to carry the loaded firearm in his car to KILL innocent people in the theater. Then he became a criminal just like one of thousands of people who commit firearms crimes on innocent people every day. That is where the laws come into play, during the prosecution of NON Deadly FORCE type of gun use. There are rules for the USE of Deadly Force Eddie. If there would have been a responsible armed citizen in the theater or 2 or 5 then so many lambs might not have been lead to the slaughter. To PROTECT your life or the life of others is the PRINCIPLE use of Deadly force. Your commented that if 180million guns aren’t enough? It doesn’t matter if there are 180 BILLION guns Eddie. If they are not where they are needed, WHEN, they are needed. Million, Billions doesn’t matter. It MIGHT have only taken “ONE” to end that carnage.
