‘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.’”
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.
