I have lived all my life in the UK where it is not our right to bare arms and I can say I am so glad and proud to live here. I do not live in fear that I need a gun to protect myself. My children do not go to school and have to go through a metal detector before they go to class. When my children do enter school they do not have to spend the rest of the day behind closed locked doors. Do some American people not see there is no need to own a semi automatic or assault rifle or high calibre...

I have lived all my life in the UK where it is not our right to bare arms and I can say I am so glad and proud to live here. I do not live in fear that I need a gun to protect myself. My children do not go to school and have to go through a metal detector before they go to class. When my children do enter school they do not have to spend the rest of the day behind closed locked doors. Do some American people not see there is no need to own a semi automatic or assault rifle or high calibre fire arm unless you are in a war zone. I understand that these attrocoties are not an everyday occurance but if you look at statistics fir the USA and all european countries you will see a significant dufference in gun related deathes. This is the time to look at your gun laws and make changes for the better and safer for all concerned.

I have read the constitution yes, that was written along time ogo when one had to defend oneself, indeed I can understand that at the time of the constitution but now there are a few more idiots in the USA that have guns and they use them on their own folk it is not a good situation, so how many more times do you want innocent children or adults to suffer at the hands of your own countrymen

We need cameras at strategic places all around the school buildings that the armed guards can monitor as they can't be everyone at once.

I am a former Marine Embassy Guard. We have top notch security protecting our countries diplomats both stateside and abroad. I guess it has become apparent that we now need to protect our nation's children with a similar setup.

I want to know why these kind of weapons are sold to the public? It should be against the law to sell or swap weapons like these! Come on Government, get with it! The only ones who should have these are the Armed Forces and Police. All those innocent children and the faculty that tried to protect them! God be with all the families!

I would like to offer a thought - one which I hope shall be observed with patience. I do not believe it would be wise to put armed guards in our schools, especially if they were to work under the local police forces or even regional jurisdictions. I question what effects such guards would have on the mental conditions of our children. They would grow up thinking it is normal to have armed guards ever-prevalent, and it should not be so. I also question whether such guards would abuse their...

I would like to offer a thought - one which I hope shall be observed with patience. I do not believe it would be wise to put armed guards in our schools, especially if they were to work under the local police forces or even regional jurisdictions. I question what effects such guards would have on the mental conditions of our children. They would grow up thinking it is normal to have armed guards ever-prevalent, and it should not be so. I also question whether such guards would abuse their power, particularly in low income, minority areas. I challenge that this would create an air of fear within schools, and that is not fair to the children. Surely, neither are the terrible acts committed in CT, but such incidents are "rare". It is not fair to instil fear in all of our nations children when only a few will ever be affected first-hand by such tragedy. I am open to rebuttal, but I do ask that conversation remain civilized, open minded, and fair.

Why do you need all those Guns ?
More guns will not solve the problem that you have.
