How about we all be AMERICANS again and look out for one another, The federal government cannot protect you, The police are an enFORCEment arm of government. Take responsibility for your fellow man, Do research on both sides before jumping on the trend bus headed to a weapons free zone to be slaughtered. The Second Amendment is the real issue, wake up!

P.S. this petition is too vague. If you only ask for 'something' they will do 'anything'

Obama supports the amendment of the bill. The Senate, who are a bunch of losers decided the outcome.

Surprise, surprise..

INTERACTIVE: We took money spent on lobbying 2011 and 2012 by America's gun rights groups, then compared it with that spent by gun control groups. Take a wild guess: Which one's which? http://trib.al/U4ZB7pg

I want to say as a God fearing woman. A army brat who was taken to the base by her dad to shoot 30/30 rifles and so on. That God Knew that this event was gong to transpire before it even happened. We in our finite minds can't believe that God would do such a thing. But he does things in his timing on his watch for his glory. My heart goes out to every person effected by this tragedy but please know that God had a purpose for this. It may not seem like it right now but go to God in all you do...

Never mind that the kids were the future of America, or that the teachers had a hand in sculpting the future of those kids, or that the firefighters, some of the bravest men around, had trained for years and worked for the safety of citizens in their community............never mind all that, a fictitious god had a better plan for them. Are you mad Lela? Gods only exist in the minds of mankind, and that is where the plans to kill others reside also.

Virgil, America has a population of around 300 million. The UK has about 60 million. America (with guns) has 10-12 thousand gun deaths a year. UK (gun ban apart from shotguns for farmers)...40 gun deaths a year. Not at all comparable.

It certainly lays the lie that owning guns keep you safe. Lanza's mother was killed by her own guns by her own son in her own home. Had she not owned assault weapons that ONLY the military should possess, she would still be alive today, as would 25 schoolchildren and teachers. When will America wake up and realise that owning guns puts you in more danger, not less?

In England guns are simply illegal to possess and even most police do not carry guns, surely if the guns are so readily available to anyone in America this tragedy could easily happen again...why do you live in such fear that you have to own guns? Gun men outside the school gates are NOT the answer, the guns need to be made illegal now.

I've already asked the pro-gun woodentops that, Sarah-Jane, many times. You won't get a sensible answer out of them. They just don't get it. They live in a fantasy world. Once stupid.........always stupid.
