Hero Story Could Have Had A Happy Ending

‘Dark Knight Rises’ shooting: Three heroes died in Aurora taking bullets for their girlfriends

In final acts of valor, Jon Blunk, Matt McQuinn and Alex Teves used their bodies to shield their girlfriends as accused madman James Holmes turned the Aurora cineplex into a shooting gallery.

Blunk, a security guard, had served in the Navy and had recently filled out papers to reenlist with a goal of becoming a Navy SEAL. “To her, he was a hero anyway because he wanted to serve his country,” she said of her daughter, who was left with shrapnel wounds to her side. “He said that all the time: ‘I was born to serve my country.’”

Aurora shooting suspect James Holmes jailed in solitary: ‘All the inmates were talking about killing him’  – NY Daily News

Had Blunk been armed, he could have taken the scumbag out and walked away a hero.

Denver already has a law banning magazines larger than 20 rounds. This law accomplished nothing, so geniuses in Congress want to make it a national law. They also want to pass additional laws which will guarantee that during future massacres – the perpetrator will be confident that no one else is armed.

    Yes he should have went to Congress where he would have recieved a medal for cleaning up the mess that we call House of Representatives and Senate

    If one person in that theater could have emptied a clip at that freak’s head, it would have given someone a chance to take him down. It is really difficult to take aim at a target, when someone is sending 10 rounds at your head, even if you are wearing body armor.

    It is my understanding that the theater does not allow conceal and carry on its premises. Another gun free killing zone, and another business I will not patronize,

    OT – “The Joe Paterno statue was removed Sunday morning from its pedestal outside Beaver Stadium, and it will be stored in an unnamed “secure location,” Penn State president Rodney Erickson announced. Erickson also said the Paterno name will remain on the university’s library….

    The decision came 10 days after a scathing report by former FBI director Louis J. Freeh found that Paterno, with three other top Penn State administrators, had concealed allegations of child sexual abuse made against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.”

    Amazing that the FBI could find so much info so quickly. Maybe its time to have the FBI look into Mikey’s Penn State travesties, and save the alum from erecting another bronze, to another criminal.

    It is apparent to me that a lot of Americans simply refuse to take responsability for their own safety and that of their families. If that were not true many of those people in that theatre would have been armed despite the law that says they have no right to carry a gun. I carried a gun for thirty some years before moving to a state that allowed concealed carry and had to pull it twice , fully ready to use it both times but the would be assailents immediately ceased their actions and as I’m not a killer I did not kill. Would I have shot and shot to kill if the assault had commemced , absolutely I would have. I’ve not had to resort to a weapon since moving to this concealed carry state and I believe part of the reason for that is that the bad people never know who is packing. I believe in Christ and mercy but God wants the bad ones taken out as Jesus himself told his followers to carry a sword. Todays sword of course is a good handgun. As times and situations seem to be deteriorating for the worse I’m glad that I’m one of those who doesn’t stick his head in the sand and beg for others to protect him. A concealed carry permit is not a licence to kill nor is it a permit to be a jerk ; it is for personal defense of youself and others to be used only when threatened by death or serious injury when there is no other solution available. Such as the Colorado theatre case

    Another liberal policy that has failed, but they have good intentions, but they’re not smart enough to figure out using ACTUAL DATA, that less gun control laws actually correlates with less gun violence. Even if strict gun laws were enforced, people who have intent to murder, or inflict harm on others will find other ways to do it. Possibly through building bombs, using knifes, poison, etc…

      “but they’re not smart enough to figure out using ACTUAL DATA, that less gun control laws actually correlates with less gun violence”

      Go on then quote me the figures. I think you are just making that up,

      I bet that the US has more accidental deaths from guns than the whole of the UK has homicides from guns, accidents and suicides etc combined in a given year even with a population waiting.

      The stats show, less guns then less all injuries and deaths, from whatever cause, results.

      It’s a no brainer. You reduce the number of guns you stop people shooting each other for whatever reason.


      • The vast majority of murders in the US are committed by minority gang members in cities with tight gun control. Get a clue.

      • Eric Webb says:

        Andy, your statistics are made up, and there is no conclusive evidence that more gun control laws equal less violence, and you have your head in the sand, and have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. For instance in the U.K., in the 1990s, after the passage of a the draconian gun ban in 1997, gun violence actually ROSE by 40% in the 2 years after the passage of the gun ban. Also, twice as many criminals are killed by citizens, and only 2% of shootings involved an innocent person being mistaken for a criminal, while the police’s “error rate” was over 5 times as high at 11%. A detailed, and comprehensive study completed in 1996 concluded that in states that allowed concealed firearms legal violent crime dropped: robbery 3%, aggravated assault 7%, murder 8.5%, rape 5%. In Vermont, citizens can carry a firearm without permission, without a fee, or without going through a government waiting period. Vermont received the “Safest State Award” 3 times, and has been in the top 5 safest states for 10 years. In 1976, Wisconsin and Georgia tried 2 different approaches to reducing gun crime, in the “Concealed v. Waiting period Laws. Georgia made it easier to carry guns, while Wisconsin imposed a 2 day waiting period. As result, Georgia was able to reduce their homicide rate by 21%, while Wisconsin saw an increase of it’s murder rate by 33%. I could do this all day, if you need more I would be glad to give you MORE FACTS, not “BETS on accidental gun deaths.” “It is a no brainer, you reduce the number of guns, you stop people from shooting each other for whatever reason.” I call BS on that, in fact is actually the other way around according to the facts I have presented above.

        Yak, yak.

        Criminals go after the EASIER targets. This is a fact. You are wrong, and stupid as well, hippie.

        Unless you would mean that somehow, magically, every single gun the USA disappeared in the blink of an eye. Of course, it would then REALLY suck to live next door to Mexico…

        But only for a little while: history shows that the Gov would then very rapidly turn into a fully visible dictatorship… oh wait, the USA is already ruled by a maniac unfettered by law or any other constraints…

        Of course, being a mindless hippie, that would not bother you. Other people, however, might just be somewhat bothered by that. Damn shame that: if only everybody was like you, willing to be a slave. Hey, how bad could it be to be a slave, after all? It’s just the greatest thing ever to have the Gov take care of you: free food, lodging, TV & Xbox, car, holidays, clothing, medical… Yay!

    When our government takes away guns from law abiding citizens criminals will still have theirs.

    • Andy says:

      “When our government takes away guns from law abiding citizens criminals will still have theirs”

      Indeed. Mind you it is the law abiding citizens who keep going on shooting sprees. So what do you do?


    • ozspeaksup says:

      Exacty!! and Aus is a fine example of super restrictive laws re guns, you can pay close to 500$ for the licence, then heaps for the gun, then more than the gun price for a steel box to be bolted to the wall and inspected by police.
      then another box to hold ammo in.
      and NO personal carry except rifles in utes on farm for emergency animal use or fox hunting…
      so if you have a rape/ robbery/ snake inside etc. by the time you get keys unlock two boxes and load…kiss your ass goodbye.
      we have more armed robbery drivebys and murders using guns now, than we did before.
      only the Law abiding are UNarmed and UNable to defend themselves here.

    Thanks Steve, this is a message which can’t be repeated enough. The lunatics are lining up to seize the populous’ guns. Here’s my take….. http://suyts.wordpress.com/2012/07/22/exploiting-human-suffering-a-time-honored-tradition-of-the-totalitarians/

  8. Andy says:

    Steve, shooting sprees tend to be from previously law abiding people, how is that a stupid comment?

    Name me the last the time the mafia went on a shooting spree. Even the Mexican drug gangs only kill people related to their work, not just shooting people at random coz they is nuts like this law abiding nutcase..

    You love your guns though so that makes these blemishes ok. You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs and if it takes all these gun deaths to get the US into the 20th Century, circa 1901, then so be it.

    Yee haa


    PS Glad I am living over here in the UK. My daughter has a chance of going to the cinema with much less likelyhood of being blown away. You live with you statistics over there and I will live with ours, guess who sleeps easier….

    • I get it now. We should make the 99.99999% law abiding people potential victims, because of the 0.00001% who are currently planning to commit massacres.

        Mafia Crackdown
        Italian Police Begin Mass Arrests in Wake of German Murders

        Italian police on Thursday began arresting scores of mafia suspects tied to a hit job in Germany in August that saw six men gunned down in Duisburg. Arrest warrants have been issued for 40 men, including the brothers of two victims.

        Two weeks after a mass mafia killing spree in the German city of Duisburg, police and Carabinieri in southern Italy have begun carrying out 40 arrest warrants for members of the ‘Ndrangheta organized crime network. The suspects include two brothers of the Duisburg victims.

        Tell me Andy, do you think the world would be safer place if only Iran had nuclear weapons or if other countries had them?
        I feel safer knowing I can defend myself against person trying to break into my home.

      Myth: The Wild West

      • ralphcramdo says:

        What’s this idiot basing he lecture on? Hollywood movies? The “wild west” was widely under populated and largely inhabited by wild animals.

    • cb says:

      So if a horde of the Ideologues of Pieces were to break into your daughters home, just what would you do? Talk? Call the stick-wielding coppers?

      As the global economy tanks, and the youth gangs increase in number (just a single real example of what is happening right now), just what are you planning to do? Politely ask them to, pretty please, gently rape your daughter? Will you tell her to cooperate? Will you or she be paying for the lubricant?

      Peace is a rare thing in this world, you utter moron. IT ALWAYS COMES TO AN END.

      And then what?

      A violent collapse of society will NOT happen in the US: because of all those people with all those guns. Will society collapse? Likely. Will the politicians be shot dead? Likely. But violent uprisings by raping murdering youth gangs? No. Well, not more than a few times: people like you are very stupid, and have to watch their buddies slide gibbering into death before their tiny brains start working.

      Tell me, genius, just how will order be established over those gangs? With talk? Debate?

      God, you hippies are stupid.

  9. johnmcguire says:

    Andy is a disarmed defenseless can’;t even carry a knife idiot. He is a victim waiting to happen. Whenever anyone bigger, stronger, meaner, or more evil comes along he is without hope of defense.His daugher is far more likely to be a victim than mine. The statistics are in and if you go to reputable sites that don’t spin the figures you will find that the states with the carry laws have less violent crime than new york , chicago , st. louis , los angeles , san fransico , etc etc.. all gun regulated zones . Average 911 response time – 21 minutes that is just plain bad. My response time – 1400 feet per second and I will shoot until the threat is gone . Stay in england andy ; we don’t want your kind over here.

    Andy’s an idiot. The drug cartels kill anybody they please and do not discriminate unless it is one of their people. All others are expendable or collateral damage.

    100-round clips are more complex than 10, 20, or 30-round clips and more prone to jamming. He did ten a favor by choosing badly for his purposes.

    Also, who cares if he bought 6,000 rounds or 1,000,000. What he did, he did with only around 50 shots. Go on all they want about “OMG, 6,000 rounds!” Do they think he had all 6,000 rounds on his person?

  12. V.E.G. says:

    There is another hero like John Thomas Larimer: Satwant Singh Kaleka! Kaleka gave his life stopping the gunman and saving many lives! Satwant’s son won an Emmy! Besides him, there are two more heroes: the children Amanat and Abhay Singh saved many lives!
