All the gun owners that I know are hunters. Sometime during hunting season they take their rifle or shotgun, as appropriate, along with their hunting license and go hunting.
My friends are way different than Mr James Holmes who is set to go on trial in Colorado next February. The post comes from RawStory about the giveaway of extended clip magazines in Colorado
A slate of new laws taking effect across the state on Monday will ban the production and sales of magazines that hold more than 15 bullets and mandate background checks for all purchases, including private and online sales.
Colorado lawmakers began working on the slate of gun control regulations after 12 were killed and 58 were injured by a gunman in an Aurora theater last July — the second major mass shooting in the state’s recent history. The alleged shooter, James Holmes, reportedly used an assortment of firearms including a semi-automatic assault weapon with a 100-round drum magazine.
Homes is set to go on trial in February. Prosecutors have rejected an offer to plead guilty in exchange for life in prison instead of the death penalty. A judge ruled last Thursday that Holmes, who has pleaded insanity and now looks very different than in his widely-publicized mugshot, will be restrained during his trial by a harness that’s attached to the floor.
Wow ! ! A harness and being attached to the floor, I bet that is going to make for a ‘fair trial’ and not sway the jury.
