Evil is Responsible, Holmes was the Tool, and Violence and Death was the Result
After the attack and murder of twelve innocent people in Aurora, Colorado, the usual reaction of the liberals is to place the blame anywhere and on anyone other than the perpetrator and the liberal theology of persecuting Christianity, indoctrination of our youth in homosexuality, pornography, violence in music, in movies, in television and violence in video games.
Liberals have managed to evict God from most aspects of our lives and substitute him with sex, violence and Hollywood and spoon feed it to our children on a daily basis and then they wonder why one of those children grows up to become James Holmes and walks into a cinema and sprays the crowd with bullets.
Guns, and the ability of law-abiding citizens to purchase them are the No. 1 target of the liberals and they argue that taking away that ability would be the cure-all for the violence. To that I say BULLSHIT, one only has to look to places that have strict gun laws like Chicago and see that violence has doubled there even with some of the strictest gun laws in the entire country. If someone is hell-bent to commit violence they will find a way to do it, no matter what.
Holmes could have just as easy burst into that theater and thrown several molotov cocktails into the crowd and dozens could have been burned to death. He could have bought a ticket like any other patron and slipped a homemade bomb under a seat or in a trash container and triggered it remotely, he had the knowledge, just look at the elaborate booby traps he set at his apartment.
My point is that this man had the desire to commit an evil act of murder and mayhem no matter what, but just one person, a law-abiding citizen with a firearm, training, and a concealed carry permit could have saved many if not all of the twelve that died that night and the countless others that were injured. Even if he had missed him , I sure Holmes would have run for the exit not expecting someone to be returning fire. As gauged by the fact that he wore a gas mask and bullet proof vest, Holmes valued his own life more than the people he was killing.

Note to my fellow posters and readers of FOTM, sorry I have been away for a while, some external mechanisms such as work and a busy schedule have kept me away more than I like, but I think things have calmed down a bit (at least for the present), so I hope I can get back into the swing of things.
