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.

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. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

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.... CALL IT A PERSONAL RIGHT..

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

Every law abiding citizen should be required to purchase, own, and trained to use their side arm. Then wear them everywhere they go. We'd have a lot less lawlessness and allot more people out there to protect themselves and others. Face it, by the time the police get there the game is over and the bad guy has gotten away. Police respond.... they don't nor can they, protect... everyone at all times.

What does one call murder when a self-serving President with a handful of cronies uses mercenary armed forces to invade and lay waste smaller nations and kill by the millions- WITH NO LEGITIMATE REASON WHATSOEVER? Then lie to and brainwash people? BUSHINATE? Nixonate?, Truminate?

Honorable President Barack Obama,

Mr. President, my name is Dan Pinedo. I am a resident of the city of Oxnard, California. My emotions have compelled me to express my thought and urge you to engage the American people on a dialogue that may lead to better school children safety and gun control legislation.

Thank you for your quick response in assigning Vice President Biden the task of examining the contributing causes of mass killings and arrive at suggestions that will lead to legislation...

Honorable President Barack Obama,

Mr. President, my name is Dan Pinedo. I am a resident of the city of Oxnard, California. My emotions have compelled me to express my thought and urge you to engage the American people on a dialogue that may lead to better school children safety and gun control legislation.

Thank you for your quick response in assigning Vice President Biden the task of examining the contributing causes of mass killings and arrive at suggestions that will lead to legislation and policy that will at least reduce the occurrence and the magnitude of such incidents. It is a grave American problem that demands your attention, and the attention of our representatives.

I must admit that after the shootings before Sandy Hook, I have sat on my couch and watched the news reports and felt the sadness, wiped the grief off my eye and expressed my anger within the confines of my own living room walls. With the death of defenseless children and the sacrifice teachers made to save them and left to fend for themselves, as the children that ran across the field and stopped at the gentleman's front lawn to rest did, has not only touched a sensitive nerve, but has brought, at least with some of us a sense of guilt to have been just watchful bystanders in the past.

There is something wrong with the people in a nation so blessed to be custodians of the greatest documents men has ever written for the purpose of people on earth to govern themselves in a prosperous, just and moral manner when they allow their own children to be massacred with weapons meant for war.

The Sandy Hook tragedy has revealed how much we have lost sight of, turned away and become negligent about the provisions in these documents and the communication with our representatives. I can only imagine the disappointment and the admonitions the signers would express to us if they could be here today. We have allowed politicians to put votes ahead of the interest of the America people.

I embrace the Constitution as a sacred American document. But I am one that believes that inspite of its greatness, flaws not foreseen at its signing and at its amending and obsolescence of some of its provisions have been revealed by time. Part of our reluctance to revisit and consider amending this document is the great reverence we have for it.

An example of obsolescence in my opinion is the electoral college. With the availability of information today, we should no longer fear that the people got it wrong, and if we did, there is no one to blame but ourselves.

The Second Amendment needs to be revisited. We need to re-examine its original intent, the arguments and the debates that brought about not only its final text, but the meaning of it as it related to the whole human atmosphere the signers envisioned for their time and for future generations, and how it now relates to our time. But then again, this amendment is sacred in itself to most Americans.

Without an in depth examination of such debates and arguments that brought about the Second Amendment, my understanding of it is that, "a well regulated militia", for the purpose of maintaining a states own security is now accomplished by the maintenance of National Guard units. "The right of the people to keep and bear arms". To "keep", I interpret as to store. It does not specify where, but my assumption is that at least one's own home. "Bear", I interpret as to have in one's own person or within close proximity of ones own person as one travels at least within one's own property to make the arm accessible if needed in a situation that may warrant it's potential use within the law. One long standing tradition is for the purpose of hunting. One foregone tradition is the gun in holster needed in downtown wildwest.

The Second Amendment does not specify for what purpose it provides the "keep" and "bear" arms right, but the traditional interpretation is that it provides for an individual's right to defend themselves, their family, those they esteem and their property from harm. It does not specify from whom, or for what violations, which is regarded as wisdom afforded to future generations.

Having suffered the presence of the British army, the Founders wanted to preserve for the people a means to defend themselves against the possibility of an oppressive government. I believe that a contributing factor for that was the lack of trust and confidence, in the success of the young democracy. In time with its strengthening of its institutions such as our judicial system, the rule of law, the press, the checks and balances of our government and the strengthening tradition of our military to uphold its commitment to safeguard the American people, has rendered that argument for the most part null and void, because there are now appropriate means to bring about redress of grievous violations by our government.

If musket rifles were the everyday arms at the time of the Second Amendment adoption, and cannons were the military's most destructive weapon, did ordinary citizens felt they needed a cannon for their own protection against criminals and the government? Most likely not. But if they did, is it likely for an ordinary citizen in our time to ever possess the most destructive weapon of our time, a nuclear weapon, to defend themselves from criminals and government? The answer is NO, of course. Between these extremes, a question remains begging for an answer. How much fire power does an American citizen needs to protect themselves, their property, and those they love from criminal and from government? The answer can only be found in the resulting consensus after a national discussion on the subjects of gun control, mental health, a culture of glorified violence and other subjects that contribute to great tragedies such as Sandy Hook.

Respectfully Yours
