Aurora Colorado Shooting

Months After Aurora Shooting Coloradans Still Against Strict Gun Control

Two months after shooting suspect James Holmes allegedly shot 12 people to death and injured another 58 in an Aurora movie theater, Coloradans are staunchly against stricter gun-control laws, a new Denver Post poll shows.

Respondents were asked, "What do you think is more important — to protect the right of Americans to own guns? Or, to control gun ownership?"
