there are some people who really need help. but there are also some that cant be helped. so we have to protect ourself to live. man has been killing man since the begining of time, if its not guns it would be swords or rocks, or strangling. its time to look hard at the FACTS. if you were in a restaurant and a crazy person came in and started shooting people wouldn't you want to protect yourself and save other lives too. if you were unarmed you would be shot and how many others? put yourself in that place. don't regret not being armed..
do you always eat out with a gun in your pocket ?
There's been an update to the case of Jeffrey Johnson, It appears most of the wounded bystanders were hit by Police Gunfire. After Johnson raised his hand Police fired at least 16 rounds. Those were the rounds that sent so many to the hospital.
Sad fact is these kind of shootings happen in all years, is the increased media coverage connected to election year issues? IDK. The big networks like to seize one story, the same story and obsess with it. Then 2 weeks later it's a new one. They're more concerned with drawing viewers so they can sell more ad time. As far as gun violence we have a cultural problem. Movies, TV, video games etc for generations now have left too many thinking it's really OK. Maybe the media should give...

Maybe the media should give more time to the after effects and consequences of gun crime instead of just reporting violent acts.
There's not a one of those guns that shot those poor people, I'm a gun owner and I have never had one of my guns take a shot at me. Doesn't that statement sound rediculious? It's no more rediculious than thinking gun control will stop these sick people from killing others with a gun. Gun control would do no more than leave the honest man without his gun and the sick people with the guns. It would make much more sense for the honest person to arm him or herself to stop these crazy people that are shooting at them.
gun controll is hitting your target, any other use of the term is UN-American
Jade Kachina,.45 Magnum? Either you mean a.44 Magnum or a.45 ACP handgun (or possibly even a.45 GAP). Judging from the article, he fired 6 shots, so I'm going with a.44 Magnum.
This does not change my opinion on firearms. New York City is a place that has banned open carry and is a CCW may-issue state (meaning, only if you deal with life or death situations or carry around lots of money will you be given a CCW, the rest are out of luck unless they have proof that they have been a victim...

If New York City allowed open carry or was a will-issue CCW state, there is a chance (albeit small) the slain could have defended himself.
In a situation like this, a gun ban would have done nothing. The guy wanted to kill his boss and only his boss, the injured civilians were caused from police fire causing debris projectile from shattering objects. He would have used a knife or choked him to death if he didn't have a gun.
No more gun controls, we need to get tougher on criminals that conmitte crime with firearms.. Guns don't kill people, people kill people...
We do not need tougher gun laws, just to have the ones we have properly enforced. However, if they are not making laws against guns, they would not have an excuse to actually pay attention to what they (lawmakers) should be doing to help salvage our country before the so called pres. completely destroys it.
These shootings are going to happen until the end of time. It's not a gun issue its a morality issue.
The fact of the matter is, if there were more conceiled carry permit holders most of the recent tragities could have been prevented and the tables turned on the people responsible for these crimes. Americans need to realize the police can not always be there to protect them. If you just reasonably look at what is happening in countries where guns have been removed from the hands of LAW abiding citizens you should be able to discern that gun control never works.
YEP. And when you look at several of these places they are ones with BANS - NYC, Chicago, Washington, DC, Aurora.....the only one where it doesn't apply I can think of is the Texas one.
In the first place whatever affect america have impact in the whole world if there is peace in america it will also have greater impact in the whole world.Whatever thing that happen in america, good or bad will affect the whole world.Therefore I strongly support whatever law that will bring peace in america and safe the life of innocent citizens without fear of falling into untimely death...
Really? Are we now the heart and sould of the world. What we do bad the rest of the world follow suit, likewise good. IF ONLY! According to the press, the world hates us - why would our behavior have any effect on the rest of the world at all! Except to give them a free rein to attack us.
Of course, America needs tougher gun laws.
AGAIN! not your country - your opinion doesn't count. I don't go there and try to tell you what to do with your country.
Tues Aug 21 '12 Obviously there are problems with the WHOLE ENTIRE system.. is it thes individual states??? or the entire country??.. Hopefully the Aurora Co., heinous acts, will expediate CHANGES!!! Vancouver Canada
Aurora banned guns. He felt safe attacking knowing that no one (law abiding) would be able to even begin a defense against him. Bans give criminals authority.
