Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, continued his crusade against after a man used an AR-15 assault rifle to last week.
Writing on the website "The FlashReport," Donnelly said tighter gun control laws would not have prevented the shooting.
"Last week, we experienced a devastating tragedy that will continue to haunt the families, friends and all of Aurora, Colorado for years to come," Donnelly wrote. "Predictably, but unfortunately, this terrible incident has been politicized and used as a rallying cry for anti-second amendment activists, media figures and even foreign heads of state. The general claim that tighter gun control laws would have prevented this incident is ludicrous, as guns were, in fact, not allowed in the Aurora theatre. That rule did not stop crazed James Homes from unleashing a bloodbath on a crowd of unsuspecting, innocent attendees. No rule would have stopped him."
