Guns don't kill people. People kill people.
Guns DO kill people but they need humans to pull the trigger. Both are equally guilty. Guns were designed to kill. That is the reason they exist. Hand grenades need a human to pull the pin, a nuclear bomb needs people to detonate them. Do you dimwits really think that everyone should own live hand grenades, nuclear weapons, flame throwers etc?
Thus why THOSE things are illegal to own, 1 bullet as compared to a grenade...come on really??
Mick - You are exactly right. All of those weapons need a PERSON to operate them. The weapon is not to blame. The person who pulls the trigger is!
Then DON'T let guns into the hands of people. Problem solved. Nobody outside of the police or military needs them. I live in England. Nobody has a gun, apart from farmers etc. We don't want them. Why do Americans? The constitution argument is a rubbish one. I have the right to own a cow, wear a pink tutu in public, grow a two foot long beard. I don't want to. Just because you have the right to do something does not mean that you have to.
Most of the people against tighter gun control are hunters! I'm from Wisconsin. I don't hunt myself, but everyone else in my family does. Hunting is a way to provide food for our families. We don't own weapons so we can take out the first person that pisses us off. The same damage could have been done with a fork. Any object can be used to kill. I guess we should ban kitchen knives and baseball bats too.
Mr. Obama. Commander an Chief. I understand you are in a hard place and we the people ask a lot of you. The popular vote says we are with you. Fear brings sudden and rash decisions. People that don't understand guns have fear of them. More gun control is not the answer. Stay after the rich to help us pay the bills for more medical help for parent and children with these disabilities. If we can learn to regulate these disabilities the guns will control themselves. Make stronger laws...

Make stronger laws for the criminals. It's not ungodly to hang a person that will not conform to the laws on the people. We say it's good for the Tyrants of other countries. Is that law not good for the Tyrants of our Country. As you say. " And may God bless the United States of America."
Good post, Jimmy.
Maybe if we did public hangings or things like that they would think twice because they would not be getting a bed, roof and 3 meals a day for the rest of their life...they would have to choke to death. I fully support your post.
I fully support the 2nd Amendment, and the full Constitution. As for executions, my reply is "Eye for and Eye makes the world blind".
change and to "an". Sorry for the typo.
David!! May be we should put you in Washington. More medical help for the sick and stronger ropes for the criminals. Getting the lawyers out of our pockets and the criminals out of the cells well cut our national debt tremendous.
I don't live in America, but I think the same can be said for the rest of the world where there is gun and knife crime, it is getting too easy now to get hold of a gun and anyone can take a knife from home, and being faced with a knife is bad enough but the gun laws need to be tightened, unless a gun is needed for work purposes, I think they should all be banned, and if caught with one the automatic prison whether it is in the home or the street.
"NO Body Has The Right to Send a Person to Prison just because they own a gun".I personally don't like your opinion just because you have no rights here in this country.
Watts you are an IDIOT !!!!!!
So if someone is beating your door in Christina Watts how do you plan to protect your family? In America we still have the right to protect ourselfs. Good to be in America! I will not sign any petition taking away our constiutional right to bear arms. Guns dont kill people, people kill people. The person that did this was mentally ill. If there had been just one teacher there with a conceal carry gun lifes could have been saved.
I'm afraid Christina you are preaching to the deaf, Americans have a different outlook on guns than we do in the UK and the rest of Europe.I'd like to bet that most of the Americans who are against the banning of guns have a gun.
How insecure are you yanks? Grow up. How many people are threatened in your own homes.......by people you don't know? In any case, if you are mugged or threatened by an armed gunman, how is being armed yourself going to help? The mugger or attacker has the element of surprise and a weapon already in his/her hands. Are you all Billy the Kid or Matt Dillon and quick on the draw. In most cases, letting the attacker know that you have a gun will be the last thing you ever do. Too much god and macho bluster and too little engaging of grey matter.
Please america dont sign this potition. Your signing for a social government. Your signing your freedoms away. Once guns are gone what will go next? Freedom of speech? Our right to choose a religion. We will become north korea or solviet russia. Please open your eyes.
Don't be ridiculous, Tiffany. What a stupid statement. Are European countries, Australia, Canada et al devoid of free speech? The UK banned guns, consequently we are a far safer society than America. We have every freedom you have, bar gun ownership which we don't want. We have free speech, freedom to have any religion we choose, or none, freedom to have same sex marriage, to be gay, straight or anything else we want to be. Don't forget that Democracy began in Europe, the legal system you...

I'm new to fb social networking etc. I think I w.
like i said i'm new to this as is obvious. duh. i read
forget it! :-)
Any gun that uses clips or magazines needs to go. There is no reason for anyone except for active soldiers to have these.
Helen I have hunted since I was 8 years old.I dont need a gun I can shoot 5 arrows out of a crossbow in less then a minute and hit the target at 50 yards.Do you all take my bow next ? What Im saying is that if someone wants to commit a crime theres always going to be a way. dont take the protection from law abiding people'
Amen to that!
It's that kind of ignorance that shows you have no idea what you're talking about. Almost all guns, barring single shot ones, have a magazine. BB guns have a magazine.
The computer technology that they developed can really kill people for nothing..It is very difficult for me to convience everybody with this kind of story. Beleive me, ...once u are chosen than only u understand better. It is very hard to explain but I make it simple as I can. When they started to control u as if like someone is inside u.

Microsoft people are murderer and hackers...trying to control people through their software technology...they are developing a kind of virus to kill human being spread through the computer screen rays and electric ion and eventuall
Alot of your signatures are from foreign countries with strict gun laws, good luck you socialist scum. Nra all tbe way, long live the Republic.
wow you sound angry
I swore a oath to protect the constitution of our great country and now people are begging for politicians to take our rights away if you don't like guns and the right to defend yourself leave the country, before you spit on what your founding fathers and my brothers and sisters in arms have bleed for. I geuss that 65% of you do not. Know of nor see how much has been sacrificed so you can have your easy lives.
AMEN I took the same oath and will protect our constitution against all enemys foreign and DOMESTIC.
Daniel Williams Thank You for laying down your life for my freedom My only brother was a Marine RIP OOH-RAH
People.are the ones who kill people, not the guns! People who are bonkers, are the offenders ! Just what I think!
I agree Patricia! A background check should be in place, so people who are responsible know how to guns, should be able to own them!
Duh John, that is what I am saying????!!!
I love you though!!!!!! :)
Fake Tears Obama.
The fake tears come from the gun lobby. They care more for their weapons of war than they do for peoples' lives.
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.
i agree kathy, im sure he needed to be watched as he was not in a right frame of mind.
don't let them take away our rights to bare arms and have means of protecting our self and our family.
Just wear short sleeved shirts. You can have bare arms to your heart's content.
IF YOU DONT HAVE ANY GUNS WHAT WILL YOU DO IF SOMEONE BREAKS INTO YOUR HOME AND TRIES TO STILL YOUR THINGS OR HARM YOUR FAMILY
They very rarely do. Grow up. Throw the dummy away and grow a backbone. You have more chance of drowning than being killed in your home by attackers.
All of you that want the nation disarmed please lnow this.if law abiding people cannot defend themselves and you pawns of big government, the lawless will rule this nation. The shooting in Clackamas was stopped by an armed citizen! If you are accosted by a criminal you have seconds to counter the threat dialing 911 will do you less good than running.
That isn't true in the UK and other countries, Butch. Why would America be like you say it would? Says a lot about Americans. None of it good.
Well Mick if you
whoops touched the wrong key. Mick i dont know much about the UK other than a lot of american blood was shed to preserve it. America is the most generous nation on earth. furthermore from what i read and hear gun crimes have gone down in your country however home invasions have increased considerable.
