"Just getting a concealed carry permit means you haven't commited a crime yet. CCP holders commit crimes." Daniel Vice, senior attorney for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, quoted on Fox & Friends, 8 Jul, 2008

Very sad story, but I'm glad they were able to make some quick arrests. I live really closeby and I'm eagerly waiting for more information. Here is another article on the same shooting, this one from the Denver Post.
3 arrested in deaths of 5 at Fero's
All I want to say is: What the heck is going on in CO? Is that state all of a sudden trying to make the Top Ten Most dangerous Places To Live list? Seems to be an abnormal outbreak of violence in that state. Lack of oxygen affecting people?

I think it's bad in any larger city.
I'm originally from Chicago so I'm no stanger to violent encounters. Got mugged In the foyer of my apartment building once, had a bullet whiz by my head when I turned a corner and came across two gangs shooting it out, had someone empty a whole magazine right in front on my garden apartment, and came acroos a woman wandering down the middle of the street that had just been raped by a cab driver...and it's worse now than when I lived there.
So to me Denver isn't too bad but it does seem to be getting worse here. People are getting crazier and more desperate and it shows but it isn't just localized to Denver. It seems like more and more people are giving up even trying to be part of polite society...that's why we are all on this site and taking every step we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
I met my wife in a bar and am happy for it but I'm also glad neither of us are part of that scene anymore.
I think the move from Chicago to Denver was clearly an upgrade. More sunshine and less gun laws.
The prosecutor gave the scumbag a sweetheart plea deal for his 2008 crimes. Lewis should still be in prison.Lewis was serving a parole term for a 2009 felony menacing case out of Jefferson County, according to Colorado Bureau of Investigation records. He had been arrested June 22, 2009, for numerous charges including assault, robbery, menacing and assaulting a police officer. The robbery count was dismissed and he was sentenced to three years in prison for menacing with a weapon.
One of the last bars My wife worked at was filled with thugs. Prison time or "being on paper" is not a deterrent. It's like a badge of honor.
Sounds like Mommy is in denial,apparently ROBBERY is something he has done.Why is it that it seems like everybody getting arrested has an occupation as an "ARTIST" I don't remember Rembrandt doing timeShe later said her son is an artist who is expecting a baby with his fiance.
"This is not something he would ever do," she said. Moments later, she fell sobbing into her sister's arms.
Court records indicate that Lewis pleaded guilty to robbery charges in Jefferson County in 2008. There was no indication of a sentence being handed down in the records.
