Dawinder S. Sidhu's recent op-ed in The Sun echoed the first thing that I thought about after I heard about the recent attack at a Colorado movie theater and then began to wonder why our expensive and extensive anti-terrorist network did not pick up on the amount of ammo or even the number and quality of the guns purchased in such a short period of time. Are we not looking for this?

The answer might be that this is a common occurrence and no one notices. That is a scary thought.

Professor Sidhu is right. Focus on the act, not the motive.
