I don't think taking guns away from good people trying only to protect themselves and their families is the answer! we do need to think about more extensive background checks and a mental compatency test for people wishing to purchase a gun of any kind, or even a yearly test to determine if you are capable of still owning the gun that you have purchased.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!
IT'S A NO BRAINER!
DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
Spread the word everywhere you can that you are a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!

It's time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us.
You're not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people.

Are you for real Antoinette? What good would guns have been in those cases? Individuals can wipe out armies? Scenario...Mr Jacobsen the Jewish watch mender is working in his shop in Munich in 1937 when six German soldiers enter his shop to arrest him. Mr Jacobson shoots all six Germans dead?.............likely?........or is that what you would have done Antoinette? I forgot that all Americans are crack shots and could take out The James Gang with ease. The sad truth is that Americans like...

I will NEVER sign a petition that strips Americans of the few rights that we still have protected by the constitution. How DARE people use the tragic loss of children's lives to further their own personal agendas. This was a random act of violence perpetrated by a seriously disturbed individual and the weapon he used to commit the act is no more responsible for it than the vehicle that drove him to the school. How absolutely RIDICULOUS.

@Richard Ferreiro, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

no its NOT RIDICULOUS.. we outlawed gun ownership, except for law enforcement and the military... who are armed to protect civilians.....IN AUSTRALIA.... ordinary people do not have access to guns.....and so we do not have armed idiots shooting our children....or committing crime such as you have ...IN AMERICA....

No one else notices that every time something terrible happens, the solution always seems to be the American people surrendering their rights.

We'll keep you safe. Just give us a little more of your freedom. You don't really need it anyway.

You go right ahead and beg for your rights to be taken away. Demand to be enslaved.

Criminals, by definition, do not obey laws. It's only the law abiding citizens that lose whenever they pull this charade. This facade of safety. Fools.

I believe we should be petitioning for more MENTAL HEALTH RESEARCH instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. I believe that if we truly want to CHANGE THE WORLD we don't start by disarming our selves and stripping rights that make us strong as a people, that should come later, when things are more peaceful. I believe we should help the sick and mentally unstable first, in order to gain a foothold into really changing everything wrong with this SICK and CRUEL World. if you believe...

I b looking at the govt mind control programme, its all part of their bigger picture.Get all the guns off good citizens so its easier for them to round u all up & throw em into the fema camps. Criminals will get a gun with or without this act. So will manchurian candidates. This is just another 9/11 on a diferent stage

Dana Hill Fiveash

I guess the shooter was unaware that there was a gun ban in effect in the building he shot up. I guess it was lucky for him his victims were aware of the gun ban and were completely unarmed at the time of the shooting. Unfortunately nobody had a police officer in their back pocket at the time of the shooting.
Criminals don't obey gun bans. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Even better, criminals CAPITALIZE on gun bans. What neighborhood is a weapon-armed criminal going to enter? The one with the gun ban, or the one without the gun ban? I know which one i'd pick. Obviously you're not going to have a problem when you know the entire town/city/state (whatever it may be) is not allowed to own a firearm due to a ban.

For your info if we get rid of weapons then we are inviting crime to come back up don't you see with people having weapons we can protect our family if we get rid of weapons we are looking at more invasions rapes robberies so much violence will come from this then you can imagine don't hate the weapons but realize who can be behind it no matter what happens we will always have something go wrong at least with weapons we can help to control any situation that comes up

I don't believe stricter gun laws will stop this from happening. Lanza did not buy his guns, he tried but could not. He stole them from his mother. I will agree there should be background checks, etc. but if we are going to look at stricter gun laws, we also need to address the other issues such has mental health, prescribed drugs, and violence in gaming and movies.
