Another tragedy to forget

The NRA is absolutely right. Guns do not kill people. If James Holmes did not have an assault rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun, and two Glock handguns, he would have simply strangled 12 people with his bare hands. Then, when his hands got tired, he would have chased down 58 others and slashed at them with any sharp object handy.

Gun-control zealots should just move on. The “Dark Knight Rises” incident will soon be just another footnote and fade from memory, like those 79 Norwegian kids on that island (remember?). After all, the Olympics start next week and the fall television season is just a month away. Get over it.
