Gun laws arent the problem. Ours are good now, if you know anything about them you'd know you have a lot to go through to get a permit. The guy who done that STOLE the guns from a registered law abiding citizen. If you take the guns away from citizens, you leave the ones who want to protect their families defenseless. Guns don't kill, I know I put my pistol on a shelf for the last 6 years and it has not killed anyone. If they would take away guns it would still happen, it would jus be like...

Guns don't kill, I know I put my pistol on a shelf for the last 6 years and it has not killed anyone. If they would take away guns it would still happen, it would jus be like the elementary school STABBING in China, where 22 children where STABBED same day i believe. Wake up people if a criminal wants a gun he will get one. Drugs are illegal but there out there, it is illegal to drink and drive but it happens everyday, and people die from it everyday. So with that we should take everybodys cars away, because they get in wrecks and kill people. It don't get announced a lot because its all over the world, but just as many people die from that as this. Yes this was a senseless tragedy and my heart is deeply saddened to the families, first responders, but taking guns won't fix the problem. Anybody who has ever had their house broken into, and been raped, beaten, held captive, or kidnapped knows. If they ban guns completely this will happen more because that criminal will come to a house and say hey I can go in there what are they gonna do shoot me. Uhh no. So let's go, if they pull a knife I have my gun. Yes something needs to be done but not taking guns. Let's star with better security in these schools, maybe a security guard. I know some schools have them, but this proves they all do. Not only to protect the children but the staff to. Plus look how many more jobs would be put into the country more security never hurts. Just my opinion hope people will understand and agree. All that we can do for newtown ia pray, and they have my prayers.

I will not sign this petition! The government has nothing to do with the problem. The problem with the people that do terrible acts, starts at home, in the way they were raised. I hate to lay this on the parents, but my upbringing taught me right from wrong. My dad may have been a bit rough, but he did teach me to respect other people and their property. Todays society is letting many of our children to do what they want. Take all there communication devices away for a week. They will...

Also, give your children a Bible and let them know that it is the best love and war mystery of all. Plus the oldest book still in publication.

Dean, the government helped to create this disaster, 1st by making school zones defenseless & 2nd by advertizing the fact.

We do need to better secure our schools, but I was just pointing out the root of the problem. Also, it does not take the federal government to get involved. The local gvernments should be securing our schools. The feds have more on their plate than they can handle.

The parents of this boy are responsible for not taking action. This kid should have been in a facility until he was cured of his mental disease. Also, all humans are basically evil. The Gospel gives us a weapon to use against evil. People do good things for others because the Holy Spirit instructs them to. Some of us know this as our up-bringing.

Thats right and dont keep them in a warm prisonwhere we have to spend time and money on them. After trial hang them that will show others we are not going to mess around when they found guilty.

Another gun law will not stop horrible incidents like the CT school shooting. Deranged people and criminals do not care about laws, they will find a way to get a gun or another type of weapon. Recently in China, a man stabbed 22 school children. He didnt need a gun to cause harm because the source of hurt is in him. He was hurting and he spread his hurt through a tool to innocent children. Another gun law will only hurt law abiding citizen

Citizens who want to use their right to arms. What would our ancestors say about giving up rights and self protective tools?

The only thing these stupid laws do is take guns out of the hands of the people who need them.

Freedom... Let me think... Use pot, abortion, make love in the street, take shower in my neighbor home, leave immigrants enter and work. Kill someone because I don't like... Freedom?

But leave us AMERICANS. alone !!! We have done good for 200 plus years with out outside interference. You look like a pasifacs that don't care about .yourself or country so to make it simple stay out of our buissness

Man, I disagree with stricter gun laws. But you don't have to attack the person because they aren't an American. No wonder the rest of the world hates us. It's probably because of people like you who think Americans are better than everyone else. News Flash: We're aren't. All of us are in this together. We need stand together and more importantly - work together - if we want to change anything in this world!

President Obama you can do something about this terrible event so that it never ever happens again. There is no excuse or reason why you can't. I will tell you why because you don't care about the American people or their children. There is no reason or excuse this even had to happened if you would of done something about it before. Your the President of the U. S. and you stand by and do nothing whatsoever. Except go on T. V. and shed tears to get the American people to believe you actually...

How would you like it if the police came to you to tell you that your children has been killed in school. How would you feel? You are a phony as a two dollar bill and I don't buy it, whatsoever. If it was your children and your relatives I bet you would see to it that they get your protection to stay safe....... May God Forgive You....

Say that to his face. I bet you wouldn't, and I can't believe you can sit there and blame the president for not acting on this. If you're not happy with how he's running America, then move to another country. If they ban guns, they might as well ban knives, baseball bats, curling irons, and forks. Any object can be used as a weapon. It takes a person to operate it. The gun isn't to blame. The person who pulled the trigger is the one to blame.

The biggest problem is that Obama uses everything for his campaign as if he is expecting a third term. He shed fake tears and I believe the election was rigged. I get emotional over this atrocity....there has to be a solution to stop all these shootings. And he never mentioned Ft. Hood, why? Because one of his Muslim brothers did the shooting. A prime example is Afghanistan, we support them and teach their troops how to defend their own country, and they turn on our troops and kill...

Pray for our troops and the shooting of the children in CT and all the other shootings that should have never happened.

You're crazy. I think you should take that flag in your picture down. I wouldn't want someone like you trying to represent America.
