Colorado recall a proxy in national gun control debate

(CNN) - Sandy Phillips was a few days away from visiting her daughter, Jessie, an aspiring sports journalist, in Colorado. They exchanged text messages shortly after midnight on a Thursday, looking forward to the visit and talking about the new Batman movie Jessie was about to see.

They said goodnight, and Philips tried going to sleep at her home in San Antonio.

Twenty minutes later she got a frantic phone call from Jessie's close friend, Brent, who was with her at the theater. He said there was a shooting, that he was shot twice.

    I own 2 weapons. I've never done anything illegal. Why do you want to "ban" me from exercising my constitutional right, Gurgyl?

    In Iowa, the NRA managed to get the law passed that allows blind and sex offenders to buy guns.

    No, the problem is with a few bad apple, non-law abiding gun owners: who traffic guns into cities; who scream and yell loud enough to block sensible gun reform that would keep weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill and make it a crime to do so.
