If only every person in the theater had been armed, this wouldn't have happened.

Clearly, Gohmert is my go-to wingnut on this today.

GOHMERT: Before we ever had concealed carry in Texas, there was just a senseless shooting, years ago, in Kileen, Tex., in a restaurant. If we'd had concealed carry permits at the time -- there was a woman who had to leave her gun in her car. If we'd had concealed carry, the guy would have been stopped before he killed so many people. And I don't know what the laws all are in Colorado, but we've found over and over again, when people are authorized to carry... 
ISTOOK: Colorado does have concealed carry permits. 
GOHMERT: Okay. It does make me wonder, with all those people in the theater, was there nobody that was carrying a gun that could have stopped this guy more quickly? I mean, in Tyler, Tex., my home town, we had a shooter come in over a domestic matter and just start shooting people. And it was a guy with a concealed carry -- he got killed, but his shooting at this guy caused him to run and no doubt saved a lot of lives. He was hero.
