    by Jon Caldara On Nov. 27, 2015, Robert Lewis Dear Jr., a self-described “warrior for the babies,” arrived at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood armed with a semi-automatic rifle. By the time the police had him in custody, he had killed three and injured nine. So, here’s a question worth pondering. How much worse could it
