just out of couriosity how many people were killed by a gun after that type was baned stolen? I'm sure that will be a large part and if someone starts a shooting rampage or I'm attacked by an animal I want the ability to protect me and my family. throw those people that don't believe in guns in the woods with a bear and see if they say anything more!

I believe the criminal should be punished, not the gun.I think the law should be focused on punishing the person, and the legal gun owner shouldn't be the one getting punished.Yes we should never change the second amendment, it was placed there to protect us from domestic control, like they had in the other countries at that time.If they take one fredom, what's to stop them from taking all freedom.

i know of a guy named michael spillers that just got out of prison for i believe it was bank robery and just got arested for stealing the fire chiefs car and found a stolen gun with his fingerprints on it and crashed into a porch in S.E. Portland last week is already free. the problem is they let criminals go without punishment and complain about the rise in crime. look it up, true store

I do not want to live in a country where the only people who have guns are criminals. The second Amendment isn't about me being able to own a gun for sport or hunting, it is about being armed and able to defend myself against a Totalitarian Government, when and if it becomes necessary.

Guns should not be allowed to be possessed by any one other than Armed forces and Police force and should be allowed to be used only at the time of acute emergency under the orders of competent authority.No arms License should be issued to any one other than the said categories.The existing licenses of civilians should be revoked and arms deposited with Govt Magazines.Extensive searches to be made to find the hidden arms.There should be a total ban on the display of any private arms.In case...

Are you absolutely psycho! Stay the hell out of our country! Keep your wacko ideas in your country. You are describing government overtaking the populace! WE have protections against illegal search and seizure. OBviously, you do not know our laws. Stay there. We don't want you or your wacky ideas here.

Goldie Holzer You are reacting after 7days from the day my write -up was posted. However tell me in your country what about the rights of those who are killed? Dont they have right to live or it is that they can be killed by any maverick like you?. You have a right when you do a duty and that duty is to abide by the law of land. Law provides that only those sentenced for punishment by law courts, can be killed, shot or hanged.Is there any law for the protection of the society or it's...

Under the guise of the so called existing protection against search & seizure, should anti-social elements be allowed to possess arms and innocent people be killed? My dear Goldie you are terming me Psycho but I find you are a bigger psycho who can not tolerate any restriction on your rights may be it is for your protection. And Goldie you note that one similar psycho who carried out the referred killings will come and finish you in the manner the referred people were killed. One doesnt get the taste of violence unless he himself suffers or his kith & kin fall victim to it.But by that time it is quite late and there is no way but to repent Dear Goldie Holzer!.Otherwise hell with you and your psycho people.

You guys are delusional if you think this is just a random act of violence 100000 people are shot by guns in the US every year ONE HUNDRED THOUGAND! Last year 31593 succumbed to those gun wounds and died. By comparison 43000 americans have died in Iraq since the beginning of the war. In that same time period Americans have killed almost 300000 americansl with guns. You guys don't need to worry about terrorists anymore your much more efficient at wiping each other out then Al Qaeda ever was.

The sad thing is I think if the gov took their guns away they'd just kill each other with hammers or something Americans just like to kill each other I guess. No where in the world do you see numbers like this. There are countries that are at civil war with less violence

hmm if you keep raising laws about guns and guns this guns that what good does it relay do the guns are not the problem a gun is a machine or a mechanism that will not do anything without the person holding it and giving it the energy to become alive now that being said restricting things is just like restricting alcohol in the old days it will still happen illegally if it must and 90% of the times the guns doing the damage were bought under the counter and illegal so if you place the death...

Problem IS NOT the guns...should not even be in the equation. Problem is all the sickos we knowingly let walk around our neighborhoods. If you're going to make tougher laws, bring back capitol punishment and make a believer out of all the criminals we're either feeding, housing, or letting walk free to do it again. Bring back public lynching!

So let's say I have a gun and I'm going to rob you. You have a gun too. Sadly, yours in the glove box, or your holster, with the safety on just like they teach you in concealed weapons class. Result: if you go for your gun, you're dead, and I get your wallet and your gun. If I see your gun, I get your wallet and your gun. People watch too many movies.
