I think it s crazy that people just can buy GUNS I got shoot myself when I was 6 years old...so I can not understand that this is something we give to people to protect or what else they use as an excuse to have them.....i belive that any gun at any home IS NOT SAFE... GUN S are for people how are afraid, why u have to be afraid...did u do something if yes fix it and u won t need a gun ( words are better than guns).

Hitler loved people who thought like you. I'm sorry you got shot. At 6 not sure how - driveby or careless gunowner (I have no sympathy for careless gun owners either)? But his goals was disarmament. IT worked. Country was at his mercy. It could happen here someday.

So you want to be "free" to carry guns. Wouldn't you rather have a nation free from insecurity, liberated by a national conscience that seeks above all else to preserve life? How free are you if you live in fear? Perhaps I don't know jack 'cause I don't live in your country, but I know where I live I don't need to worry about being shot. Yes it does happen here, like everywhere but I ain't looking over my shoulder. So I'm free from that fear. Maybe if I lived in your hood I would feel the...

Maybe I would succumb to the fear that has been allowed to envelop your minds. Maybe you can't remold the model you have there but it just might be worth trying for the collective good.

There are areas in this nation you do not go without a weapon. But most of us feel relatively safe. The guns are for those 'possibilities'. I recently found out my daughter's past boyfriend served time for home invasion. Do you know what that is? He committed 37 of them. That is when someone goes into a home with a weapon- usually a gun stolen - with PEOPLE HOME, and either kill them, rape them, or scare the hell out of them. In his case, he tied them up and terrorized them. Thank...

Why is it America has so many problems with group killing, by guns? So does that say anything to you.

What we need is a country, like ours, where we govern ourselves by the demands of God and not man. Then when people commit these horrible crimes they would be shot themselves and not allowed to live and encumber our tax debt for bigger prisons. Those that are truly innocent should be release yesterday and stop tying our jails and court systems with unneeded jail and court time. But for habitual criminals should be taken to the prison wall and shoot to death for their crimes. We as people cannot change what other people do, Only God can do that.

And this has to do with guns how? But just to answer you - politicians are very well paid during and after they leave office - especially the president, it sucks.

typical NRA rhetoric...we are bought and sold, as are the politicians, by the gun makers, and are brainwashed with funny numbers by them to think that owning a gun is somehow patriotic and American....I am unarmed and unafraid and proud of it...I am stating a movement with prominent folk around the country to disarm beginning with the youth...enough is enough....if you want to join go to fb page "Unarmed and Unafraid"...real men never needed a gun and never will!

Hitler's son I'm guessing (if he had one). He had no fear either. You're probably one of those that wants God out of our history books as well. Start your group. People on here have said it many times before - if anything starts another civil war it will be the fight over the 2nd.

I don't think that in this day and age, guns are necessary in order to live. We don't have to kill our own food anymore. More focus on mental health......anger issues?

I don't hunt. I'd be a veggie if I had to kill to eat. HOWEVER, people DO HUNT, it's a sport and people DO EAT the meat. It's necessary to keep everything in balance because man screwed up the balance. So, you are very, very wrong. I have guns for entertainment, lie some go to movies, I go to the firing range. My right, my option. Not yours to take away.

An assault rifle, by LEGAL DEFINITION- you know, the official one Congress used in the original ban, is a FULLY AUTOMATIC or SELECT-FIRE(three-round burst) rifle. NOT semi-automatic. So, by Official Legal Definition, a semi-automatic assault rifle does not exist.

By YOUR definition, my little Marlin.22 caliber rifle is an 'assault rifle'. It fires multiple times without re-cocking(NOT the same as re-loading), carries more than ten rounds in a built-in magazine, and is capable of fairly rapid- though by no means automatic-fire.
A semi-automatic firearm of any configuration will only fire one round of ammunition per trigger-pull. A fully-automatic firearm will fire multiple rounds per trigger-pull.
It is very difficult-not to mention expensive-for any citizen to LEGALLY purchase a FULLY automatic assault rifle.
Please get the FACTS straight.

That's what I said in a post just today when someone said semi-autos should be banned. How ridiculous! Most guns other than revolvers are semi now and my 44 S&W dirty harry gun is a revolver but it is double action so can fire twice quite easily. People need to wake up to the difference between auto and semi auto.

You can't have the average Mr/Ms running around with guns and knives. The average person today is highly stressed, impatient, rude and high on something, so when those type carry guns and knives it's a.
recipe for disaster. MAKE GUNS AND KNIVES ILLEGAL!

OMG! And you think our politicians, police officers, and others that you would give them to can't fall victimn to teh very things you just named. Unbelievable! A doctor chopped his wife up and spread her body parts in various bodies of water. HE didn't need a gun! Psychosis is not limited to the 'average' person!
