Oh and also think about the fact that most of the places where guns are illegal are where crime rates are the highest. Making gun laws to prevent criminals from getting guns? Please tell me more about how criminals follow the law.

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.

This man was mentally ill. It has been stated in numerous places. Those who can not and do not obey authority are just not rational. This man was obviously not rational. No rational person could do this. He could have used a knife or other weapon too.

Come on. Let's make changes to the mental health system. Please sign this petition: http://www.causes.com/causes/807139-demand-more-from-usa-oppositional-defiant-disorder-programs-funding/actions/1716682.

According to news coverage and police the murderer in CT had no criminal background...the issue isn't the guns...criminals are criminals because they don't follow the law. Law abiding citizens would be the only ones without guns and they're the ones that need them. The answer is higher security measures to prevent an attack. We have to be smarter about our safety. Metal detectors should be in every school with an armed guard at the entrance. Think about this...you don't see someone going in...

Think about this...you don't see someone going in and shooting up a prison..yet innocent children are killed in a public school....we safe guard our prisoners better than we do our children...Prisons have guards to protect the inmates (yes the security measures are to keep people from escaping but they are safeguarded from intrusion as well)....Our way of thinking and our tax dollar spending needs to change...the money spent on entertainment alone in the prisons would cover a lot of that expense. Repeat offender numbers would drop perhaps if prison was a bit more uncomfortable.

THIS IS THE LAST PERSON I WANT TO COME UP WITH A PLAN. THE PLAN IS SIMPLE BEFORE A PERSON BUYS A GUN THEY GO THRO PSYCHOANALISIS FOR 6 MONTHS. EVEN IF IN MILITARY PRIOR TO GET A PERMIT GO THRU CLASSES AT A STATE APPROVED WEAPONS CENTER and never never ask a person to give up his weapon unless he is a criminal. If the media would print them you would see more stories of weapons saving people. I think if all the people who want to take weapons should take a look at all the countries that took the weapons and see how they live now.

I don't understand why everyone is freaking out about this tragedy in Connecticut. What about the thousands of troops that have died in war or the ones that have taken their own lives because of what they've had to go through? What about our veterans? Nobody says anything about them. Sure, it's a sad thing to see happen, but why are we making a big issue about it now?

Also it should be noted, the 2nd Amendment has NOTHING to do with hunting, competitive shooting, “sporting purposes”, racquet ball, swimming, camping, etc. The 2nd Amendment (and the entire Bill of Rights) is to preserve a balance of power between the citizens and their government.

My 15 year old daughter was the 87th person killed in Nashville, Tn. in 2005 due to gun-violence. She was killed by way of a stray bullet while visiting a friend. Now 7 years later the problem has only gotten worse all over the world. THERE HAS TO BE A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM!

I did not see anywhere on this page what an illegal gun is. Laws don't prevent criminals from committing crimes. Laws only make it possible for criminals who are caugt to be punished. There are many laws about many things and people still choose to break them. This wants our leaders take action to keep illegal guns out of dangerous hands. Many of the mass shootings that have occured have happend with legally purchased guns and ammunition. Gun laws did not stop them. The aurora colorado...

Many of the mass shootings that have occured have happend with legally purchased guns and ammunition. Gun laws did not stop them. The aurora colorado theater shooting happend in an area where it was against the law to have a gun. The law did not stop the crime. In 1927 a school employee used explosives to kill 38 children and several adults. They had prayer in school and the ten commandments. It still happend. Last week a man in china slashed 22 children with a knife at a school yard. Someone said what would prevent someone from using a vehicle from running down a group of people to commit mass murder? Nothing. Hundred of people are killed by drunk drivers and alcohol is still legal. People say if we legalize pot people will be driving stoned and kill people. People drive high on illegal drugs and still kill people. Laws don't stop criminals from committing crimes.
