A Forbes article says there's a real threat of U.S. ratification of the UN arms treaty under now-increased pressure to “do something” after the Aurora shootings.
This presents a formidable threat, especially if we consider the lesson taught in R. J. Rummel's revealing work, Death by Government: Far worse than any carnage inflicted by a lone shooter is done when the government itself has unlimited power over its people.
As to whether James Holmes is indeed a "lone shooter," an analysis of the Aurora, Colorado, gunman in the so-called “Batman Massacre,” prepared by Mike Adams of naturalnews.com concludes that Holmes might have had some help.
According to Adams, the behavior of Holmes “just doesn’t add up.” Writes Adams:
His behavior already reveals stark inconsistencies that question the mainstream explanation of events. For example, he opened fire on innocent people but then calmly surrendered to police without resistance. This is not consistent with the idea of "killing everyone."
Furthermore, he then admitted to police that his apartment was booby-trapped with explosives. If you were really an evil-minded Joker trying to kill people (including cops), why would you warn them about the booby trap in advance? It doesn't add up.
In addition, according to Adams, Holmes had to have had help. Holmes was broke, collecting unemployment insurance, and yet he was able to acquire an arsenal not only of weapons but explosives and SWAT gear costing thousands of dollars. Where did that come from?
