I have never in my life seen so many people in denial over the whole gun issue. Gun ownership in this country is a form of insanity born of the huge business of weapons, in all its permutations. Of course background check reform will have little or no impact on this problem: This is merely skirting the issue and pretending to be doing something. Lock these damned weapons away from those who aren't supposed to have them. With gun ownership must come responsibility, and the primary responsibility is to prevent unlawful use.

So if someone steal my car and kills someone with it I should be charged with a crime?

I am tired of being bullied by the NRA and other pro gun owners. I don't want your guns taken away but we need to have a sensible federal gun law. I want to see decreasing the size of magazines, making it more difficult purchasing war guns and requiring all gun purchases to have back ground checks.

I don't understand why this does not go through with the massive gun violence in today's nation. The majority of the people of all states condone background checks yet their senators voted it down. These senators sold out to the NRA and were bought off and the people's voice was ignored -typical Republicans and shame on the Democrats that voted this down. I am sickened by the lack of consideration of what the majority wants overshadowed by greed! Please vote yes on background checks for the...

Please vote yes on background checks for the safety of the people and the acknowledgement of those children and others killed by mentally ill people that may have been prevented with background checks. Let the people speak and don't be moved by your own greed and ignorance.

Really Kelli try reading these post and tell me what the majority wants. Where do you people come up with these stats? Must be out of a crackerjack box.

tell me how does a background check stop someone from committing a mass killing? Stop them from getting the guy you say? How about they steal the gun? How about they build a bomb? What stops massing killings? A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN,

Guns and people do not mix. Not anymore. Too many innocent people including children have been victims of gun violence. More die from gun use than are protected by guns. And it is getting worse. The NRA and its supporters have never had an answer to the problem, but they make sure that we know of their right to bear arms. Well, they all need to shut up. Our right to be free from gun violence far outweighs their right to bear arms. Guns that are used to kill have no business in society. Get...

George, this is America and it has a long history of both guns and violence. I am not sure what society you want to live in Canada maybe. But one think is for sure, guns are in America to stay. Obama has done more for the gun manufactures than gun control. Gun sales and profits are at an all time high at the fear of more gun laws. There is no possible way to rid America of its guns without confiscation and that in turn is not good for America because it would bring an all out civil war...

Can you imagine going from house to house in Texas trying to take guns away.

well(!) this a complex conundrum... of course it shouldnt be easier to get a fire-arm than buying and operating a car. but first off i'm not much for laws (n general) and any governent ( but Love) tellin me what too do... i grew up with guns (had my first at 7 years old, out n the Mojave just across the mountains from death valley)... my Dad taught me, safety first, how to shoot straight a distant 2nd. anyway,,,, for the last 30+ years i've been living in the...

Hunting is a way that father n son/daughter learn bout each of the other and Life. it's not about the harvest, but the hunt itself.... you get to know each other, Father n kids, planet and hunters.... ( i suppose city folk can only imagine)......... So, what do we do to stop the insanity(?) ban guns(?) tell it to the people that were maimed in Boston... so we ban pressure cookers(!)? well, heck, their ya go...

Once again...if these gun owners are so responsible where do the bad guys get them..we needed to bear arms when we lived in the Wild West...now we need to be responsible adults and act like we care about each other and stop acting like it's so important we protect are own stuff, and start protecting each other...not with automatic weapons of any kind.
