If you pay attention, I do believe that the guns were legally bought by a family member. He did not purchase those guns himself. Therefore you can not blame gun laws for stolen guns. As a matter of fact you can't blame knife salesman for stabbings, shoe makers for stompings, etc... If someone decides to go haywire and cause a tragedy they will find a way. Same way drugs are illegal but how many drugs are out there and how many are made out of household medications. You can't fix crazy or else the world would be perfect.
Well said NIck!!
very well said , trust me cheri the police have almost the same weapons that the miltary has
When I first heard the news about all the children and people that were killed in New Town, Connecticut I was shocked and in tears. One of the statements that the officials made was that there is not enough money to have policemen in every school, that they cannot have weapon detectors in every school because it is to expensive. You see, what is impossible for men is possible for God because He is able to change all this turmoil that our nation is in. In our own strength we cannot do it....

You see, what is impossible for men is possible for God because He is able to change all this turmoil that our nation is in. In our own strength we cannot do it. It has to be done supernaturally. When we were young they taught us the fear of God in the schools. We would pledge allegiance to the flag and place the day in Jesus hands and these things did not happen. As soon as men took Jesus out of the schools the evilness started to take place. When Jesus is not the center of a nation, then someone else is. What has happened is that we are trying to imitate other nations ways, and they come here and dictate us how to manage our nation which as you can see they always end up in violence. I think it's time that we as Christians stand up and make a statement to our government and make them aware that without Jesus in the schools, even worse things will happen. We were a nation that were founded in Christianity not in killings. Let's go back to our old ways where Jesus was the center of our nation.
I could not agree more, very nicely put.. Please go to FaceBook and like ...Putting God back in schools ...
The states could put guards or police in schools but they would reather spend the money on collage football. I belive God needs to be back in schools but our goverments need to spend the money to protect our schools.
I thought in light of what happened in Newtown, Conneticut, there would be more American's on board in relation to this petition. Though it's great to see so many care enough to sign a condolence card, it's sad to see not many willing to sign up for reforms that would prevent this from happening again in your country. I'm not saying it would completely abolish the violence of gun use. But to care enough to try, is it really to much to ask?
I couldn't agree more. The disparity between the number of signatures between the two petitions is extremely sad. FWIW, I signed BOTH of them.
America, has to change it's gun laws, there has bin just too much sensless killings of innocent woman , kids, & men. Don't wait , start now.
"Bin"... It's not the weapon it's the people behind it... Btw.. It's been.
ok with auto-ban but not semi-auto ban. good start?
Os EUA precisam de um plano político com base legislativa para mudar o uso de armas no país. Presidente Obama, Presente!
From Google Translate: "U.S. needs a political basis for legislative change the use of weapons in the country. President Obama, Present! Duisent.
Who ever is running this page if you cant stop deleting my post because you dont like what I have to say you can take down my post about my daddy shooting at my feet everyone else on here is getting to say what they want why cant I because its the truth and you cant handle the real truth from a victim ?
If by 'gun safety plan' you are implying regulation on guns for the general population, then I will be sure to spread the word to my peers to NOT sign this petition.
It really depends on what kind of 'gun safety plan' we're talking. If it means regulation, then I'm not for it. Usually when this type of situation occurs, the anti-gun activists come crawling out with claims that these types of situations are somehow 'preventable' when they are not. Disarming citizens of both a weapon and their rights does not protect citizens. I guess we will see what type of action the president plans to take.
90 million gun owners with over 300 million guns KILLED NO ONE LAST YEAR.
Give them time. This year's legal gun owner is next year's murderer.
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.
Who need? Why need? And the Police? Crazy people...
what is suppose to be first , freedom of owning or the safety of the children.
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?
