Background checks for people wanting to buy guns in Colorado jumped more than 41 percent after Friday morning's shooting at an Aurora movie theater, and firearms instructors say they're also seeing increased interest in the training required for a concealed-carry permit.IOW, Americans in general are not falling for the calls that they should be disarmed but instead are realizing that the authorities ARE not and CAN not protect them from madmen (who shall remain nameless).
While the Anti's are using this to push whatever political goal they think they can successfully pursue, the public is waking up to the enabling of these kind of events by 'gun free zones' and the media which glamorizes it. Already there have been multiple copycat attempts just like regularly happens after the news plasters these psycho's faces and names all over.
And each one of these people who buy firearms and get the training is one more person who won't listen to the nonsense from Sugarmann, Horwitz, Gross et al. which is nothing but good.
