    Default Not Again! Four Dead in Aurora, Colorado shooting

    A gunman has killed three people in a hostage siege in Aurora, Colorado, before losing his own life. It is unclear if the police shot him or he killed himself. Aurora is the same town where a man shot up a theatre last year killing 12 people and injuring scores more..............

    America is a nation lost in the worship of a 200 year old constitution, written by athiests who are now imagined to have been devout christians, and whose articles and amendments are interpreted by the highest bidder.

    It is the traditional meaning of a 'farce'.

    The founding fathers never intended to have the right to bear arms include a kid with an assault rifle.

    The right to carry arms in fairness was never in the original constitution. It was in the so called "bill of rights" added later. All at the request of a minority of states concerned mostly about a potential slave uprising. Bill of rights indeed.................

    The Constitution of America was written by atheists? Really? So only atheists in America carry guns because good Christians never would, it would appear from your peculiar, most peculiar post.]

    Of the 4 dead, 3 were suspected members of the shooters family. The 4th was the shooter shot and killed by Police.

    (Reuters) - A gunman who barricaded himself inside a townhouse after killing three people in the home was shot to death by police on Saturday in Aurora, Colorado, the same Denver suburb where 12 people were slain in a movie house massacre last July, police said.

    Written actually by agnostics who had little time for organised religion. Aggressive secularists is probably the best way to describe the Founding Fathers.

    My meaning is that there is a belief currently in America that the Founding Fathers were writing a constitution somehow inspired by god. In fact, history tells us they were not religious people.

    Will the NRA insist all homes now have armed guards?
