Friends, family and residents of Aurora, Colorado, gather to remember the victims who died in the movie theater shooting.
Even though America grants its citizens unlimited rights to numerous privileges, it obviously does so without conscience. And now it is seeing the payback of such stupidity. When America allows its citizens to freely buy explosives, guns and ammo with minimal requirements (such as showing I.D.), that is a joke!! When will government wake up and force arms dealers–whether they being sporting goods stores or pawn shops–to list a purchaser's name, address, etc. on a federal website, along with their purchases. This information would be available only to store dealers and the feds who have reason to access this website. And if anyone purchases more than what is considered "normal" or "average" (according to pre-set guidelines), that would give the authorities to look deeper into that person's purchases/activities. Something of this magnitude NEEDS to be activated as soon as possible–the sooner, the better.
