    I doubt coincidence. Reports are that handgun purchases and CCW applications are skyrocketing in Colorado. I'm happy to see that, but it still amazes me how long it takes the average citizen to realize the government isn't here to protect the individual from violent crime, and the government can't protect the individual from violent crime.

    I am a little, O.K., a lot behind, but the student was an extremely intelligent young man...and because of his experience with video games and arcades, he was an exceptional shooter with several guns and calibers. What I thought before the class (mind games) and what the result was diametrically opposed and the outcome and experience was rewarding for both of us! He left with a "game plan" for continuing to live in CO. ...oh by the way, he had been to that theater many times and in that actual location.

    The realization for many has been slow in coming and, unfortunately, when things settle down complacency will again become the norm. Sheepdogs make sheep nervous unless the wolf is at the door as Lt. Col. (Ret) Grossman said.
    Human beings understand and respect compassion, kindness, empathy, truth, fairness and logic.
    Predators respect strength

    There is no word for "dog" in Sheepanese. Sheep refer to all canine as "wolves", as clearly demonstrated in the award-winning, factual documentary film, BABE.
