We are missing the point about the Aurora Colorado tragedy. If it is legal or not to buy fire arms, it is a matter of a deep controversy between two groups: Those who favors gun control and those who opposes it.
|James Holmes: His life will|
end in prison.
Gun control legislation is dead now in election year. As dead as those who lost their lives at the theater.
What we really have to look at is a deficient system to supervise purchasing of fire arms. Background checks are supposed to be approved or denied by the agencies responsible for such crucial matter.
ATF and the Police Department have to be informed of those transactions. And this is the big question: Wasn't it a motive for a deep scrutiny the fact that the killer bought an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, two .40-caliber Glock handgun and a Remington 12-gauge shot gun, plus explosive devices?
Wasn't suspicious that a 24 years old man, a student , bought that arsenal plus hundreds of ammunition? Why in the world did he want so much deadly weaponry?
Could James Holmes be asked why he wanted so much power? "Oh, it was legal," they said. Wasn't he supposed to be investigated?
No questions asked. 12 or more people are dead. Near 60 wounded. Money talks louder than human lives.
What this monster's motive was? It doesn't matter. What really matters is the weakness and failure of our system.
