Congress, the Senate, and President Obama

Going after guns and banning guns does nothing to address the problem. You must deal with the person standing behind the gun. Have stricter mental health initiatives. Make it so there is a standard for mentally ill people and guns. Do immediate, and comprehensive background checks at gun shows. In this electronic age why is this a problem? Do not ban our God given RIGHT to bear arms. According to our founding fathers this right shall not be infringed upon. The only thing a gun ban will do will stop law abiding citizens, those who live within the constraints of the law, from buying guns.

Signed,

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children of every age from 2 to 14 years old (based on 2001 figures, which are the latest mortality data currently available from the National Center for Health Statistics).

Imagine a plane full of people crashing, killing everyone on board, every single day. That's how many people die on America's roads daily, says the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

"Motor vehicle crashes in the United States result in more than 40,000 deaths per year," says the Institute in the journal Injury Prevention. "That is, on each of the 6,209 consecutive days included in this study, an equivalent of a plane load or more of people died on the roads."

We do not outlaw cars. What has happened is a travesty but it is no reason to blame the NRA, or those who responsibly own semi-automatic, or assault weapons. We need to address the real issue. That issue is what or whom is behind the weapon.
