With politicians and the media all pushing gun control in the wake of the shooting, the exact opposite has happened. Gun sales have gone way up because people want to "protect their kids" and all that.

Nearly 800,000 people tried to buy guns in Florida in 2012 | Florida politics blog: The Buzz | Tampa Bay Times

Never make decisions involving money out of fear or greed.

It's not fear. It's common sense.

I agree, it's crazy to think that after Aurora and many other shootings that Obama is really going to spend political capital on what is largely an urban problem. I mean, sure you have to say the right things and condemn guns and maybe attend a rally but it will all die down soon enough.

Anyone rushing to buy guns didn't pay attention in 2008 when the same thing happened.

That's a bill proposed by Illinois, not Chicago. Not quite the same.
