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.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
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.

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?

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...

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.

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.

Dana Hill Fiveash

I guess the shooter was unaware that there was a gun ban in effect in the building he shot up. I guess it was lucky for him his victims were aware of the gun ban and were completely unarmed at the time of the shooting. Unfortunately nobody had a police officer in their back pocket at the time of the shooting.
Criminals don't obey gun bans. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Even better, criminals CAPITALIZE on gun bans. What neighborhood is a weapon-armed criminal going to enter? The one with the gun ban, or the one without the gun ban? I know which one i'd pick. Obviously you're not going to have a problem when you know the entire town/city/state (whatever it may be) is not allowed to own a firearm due to a ban.

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.
