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.

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.

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.

People have been killed each other since the dawn of time all the back to Cain and Able. and news flash they didn't have guns around back then!

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.

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.

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.

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.
