As Twitchy reported, police engaged in an “intense” standoff with an armed hostage-taker barricaded in an Aurora, Colo., home this morning. Current reports indicate that four people, including the gunman, are dead.
And, again, praying for Aurora.

But even before details about injuries and fatalities were available, Second Amendment-stompers were busy politicizing the situation to advance their gun control agenda. Never let a crisis go to waste:

Another shooting in Aurora, Colorado… The states need to really ban ownership of guns.
