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...

If confronted with an armed gunman, it is YOU who will most likely end up dead, not him.

I have been sitting here crying over the Sandy Hook Tragedy since I heard about it Friday. I'm going to get on my soap box here a little. My problem is why is it that when something like this happens everybody starts hollering gun control and saying these people had to be mentally ill to have committed such an act. Very Sane people commit such acts and worse. Massacre's happen everyday all around the world. On 9/11 there were nearly 3000 innocent people killed without one shot from a gun. I...

Very Sane people commit such acts and worse. Massacre's happen everyday all around the world. On 9/11 there were nearly 3000 innocent people killed without one shot from a gun. I am for some gun control {very little} call me a back woods Hillbilly if you like either way Guns do save lives too I know it has saved mine! I have been held at gun point and almost kidnapped when I was a kid 10yrs old in Memphis Tn I have been shot at on more than one occasion with non automatic Pistols and Shotguns by a family member what it all boils down to for me is the idiot holding the gun and the world is full of them. Good Luck Mr. President you have no power to do squat you just hold the title as Commander and Chief ahh yeah Government has all the POWER so it doesn't look like I have anything to be worried about to soon. Um well maybe I do. Let see I have been sleeping with a Pistol since I was 12yrs old Thank goodness cause in my 20's I had my door kicked in by an unknown black man who ran because I was standing there with a.357 Mag and I had every right to kill him but didn't.....I had a boyfriend nearly beat me to death and I couldn't get to my gun or he would be very injured I could tell you many stories like this it doesn't matter that I have PTSD or that I have Bi-Polar depression psssssst yeah that is Mental Illness so Mr President & Government Are you going to tell me now that I can't own or carry a gun? I don't think so! It will be over my DEAD BODY I do not and will not ever Register a Gun for the Government to come and try to track me down and take MY GUNS from me. My Guns are my business not the Governments. If we ever let the Government start changing our Constitutional Rights and Amendments We The People will be in big trouble. It is up to me as a parent to teach and train my children as they should go and Gun Safety and have them in a metal safe where my children or anyone else can not get them. Do you think God is going to change the 10 Commandments? Just because I break his laws over & over again? No and My God gives me freedom of CHOICE and Forgiveness I have sinned and wished people were dead so I may as well have killed them because I sinned in my heart but if I am saved and ask the God of my understanding to forgive me and really mean it he will forgive me. I believe our founding fathers of this great America were good God fearing men and had good Morals and God given wisdom when they wrote the Constitution and the Amendments that I live by today. They do not need to be changed just like I don't think the 10 Commandments should be changed. But who am I just one person with what I believe. This Country has lost its morals and standards that once made her a Great Nation. I think everyone ought to just shoot a gun one time and have their life flash before their eyes just one time before they make stupid decisions about taking someones "Right to Bear Arms" Like little children sleep with their blankies I sleep with my GUN ;).

President Obama, I have worked to get you elected. Please don't let us down on this issue of gun control and mental health care. We cannot let these sweet lost lives be lost for no reason. May they be the inspiration for a comprehensive bill to prevent the ongoing carnage that has become epidemic in our country.

Timothy McVeigh didn't use a gun and he killed168 people. 19 of which were children. Injured over 600. Murderers will murder with or without a gun. I for one will never give up my right. Look at how banning guns has effected Australia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8RDWltHxRc

yes, we all have our opinions of what the cause is or isn't for such a senseless act of violence..terrorist, mass murderers what's the difference..maybe we should ask ourselves what do they have in common..unstable, warped reality, no respect for life, no respect for others beliefs or values..when someone decides that their own beliefs or values are more important than those lives that they are willing to take..reflect on "the Golden Rule", background checks will not bring to light the...

My heart aches for the families of all that have lost loved ones due to these awful acts by individuals who call themselves human..so sad...

IF YOU DON'T LIKE OUR CONSTITUTION STAY AWAY......firstly, you couldn't pay me enough to visit America. Ignorance and arrogance are a bad mix. Secondly, you just keep on protecting yourselves (just in case someone breaks in) and the rest of the world will keep crying over YOUR babies.
