I am not in agreement, taking guns from the people. Take guns from the criminally insane. If you know a family member isn't well mentally, I would say to forget the guns.

Excellent Sandra your statement hits the mark. Bottom line our forefathers were brilliant in creating the constitution and every part is vital to a truly free country. I wish more people were more familiar with history and what happened to those who had their gun right stripped.

Guns had nothing too do with the Boston Marathon! IT WERE BOMBS! People kill people with guns, guns don't go off without someone pulling the trigger! If I had not had a gun in early 2000, I would be dead because of an attempted car jacking in a bad side of Houston. I was a hom health nurse when someone tried to hijack me. That weapon saved my life when a friend of mine lost hers do the same situation. I don't believe in killing someone but I do believe in self perservation, the 2nd...

Guns had nothing too do with the Boston Marathon! IT WERE BOMBS! People kill people with guns, guns don't go off without someone pulling the trigger!

That weapon saved my life when a friend of mine lost hers do the same situation. I don't believe in killing someone but I do believe in self perservation, the 2nd Amendment, and as my dad taught me, gun safety. I also believe in stricter background checks and harsher penalties for felons. But that is where our tax dollars go, to ensure our rights are protected, we are able to protect our property and ourselves, and that the government does its job. They didn't do their job yesterday!

Dawn, I am a police officer in the United States. We have 1000's, I repeat 1000's of gun laws on the books. Gun laws are not the issue. When Adam Lanza did what he did, please let me point out a few thing's. Adam Lanza broke the law when he took his mothers guns illegally to commit this horrific crime, being in possession of these stolen firearm's, he broke the law, brining these firearms onto school property, he broke the law, each person he shot he broke the law. My point is, the United...

Adam Lanza broke the law when he took his mothers guns illegally to commit this horrific crime, being in possession of these stolen firearm's, he broke the law, brining these firearms onto school property, he broke the law, each person he shot he broke the law. My point is, the United States has to address the mental health issues, not gun issues. Not one of these laws that I mentioned that Lanza broke stopped him from carrying out this horrific act.

First, my prayers go out to Boston. One another note, since 9/11, anyone remember that event?? Okay many terrorist cells are still living in the US. Homeland Security is out numbered. Also, everybody was focused on North Korea, leaving the US wide open for a strike. When will it end? Someone asked, until their " god " tells them to stop. They have brain washed with the wrong version of the Koran, and took it to a dark place.
I saw a picture of woman soldier hugging her daughter. Someone...

I saw a picture of woman soldier hugging her daughter. Someone wrote underneath, " I wonder if she feels guilty for killing other children and women." My defense to that, as ordered, do not fire, unless fired upon, if they use their own as shields, we are forced. When will it end? I pray soon! GOOD BLESS AMERICA

We in this country are not doing enough to protect it's citizens. It's time the PRESIDENT got tough on gun laws,criminals and not worry about what some will think of him and his legacy.
We have to stop these crimes before they happen, get real NRA, I'm with you on the right to own a gun but if your not willing to put tougher laws in place to gain that right then you are a terrorist!

Its not so much of the guns its who what when where how and why do they have them. If we all put our trust in the lord we would never need them. Sometimes we have to take the time out and think where did this mess all start. Taking prayer out of school could be a clue. Why did we give the devil credit . Now he took the game and running it. But people it could stop we just have to call on the Almighty. Our lord Jesus christ. Bottom line.
