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.

Relying on fictitious creatures is useless. Only legislation by real people will cure America's gun lunacy.

More people die in the USA every year from gun crime than the combined total from 9/11 and the deaths of US service personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. So the US "right to bear arms" is effectively a right to perform acts of domestic terrorism. It should be treated accordingly. The NRA's suggestion about a police officer in every school is simply stupid and is designed to distract debate away from gun control. Does the US government really have a spare $100 billion a year to spend on such a...

The NRA's suggestion about a police officer in every school is simply stupid and is designed to distract debate away from gun control. Does the US government really have a spare $100 billion a year to spend on such a suggestion. The NRA conveniently ignores the shootings in the temple (a police officer in every church?), colleges (multiple police offices on every college campus?), workplaces (a police officer in every workplace?)shopping centres... need I say more? And what about the innocent people caught in the cross-fire? Gunbattles in elementary schools, yeah, great idea. A better suggestion would be for every gun owner to have a compulsory mental health examination every year to determine whether they were mentally competent to own a weapon. Since by definition being gun crazy isn't sane, most of them would be deprived of their weapons and maybe get the treatment they need to deal with their obsession with firearms.

Why are Americans so pathetic? Scared of their own shadows. Scared of reds under the bed, aliens, illegal immigrants, Muslims, gays, abortion, atheists, evolution, billions of nasty men out to kill them. Talk about paranoia. I'm 71, I live in England. We are happier and more content than Americans. We are safer than Americans. We have a ban on gun ownership and 99.9% of us like it that way. We don't want guns. England and Wales has 0.7 gun deaths per 1 million population. America has 37 gun...

England and Wales has 0.7 gun deaths per 1 million population. America has 37 gun deaths per 1 million population. I have NEVER been burgled. NEVER been mugged. NEVER been threatened with ANY weapon. Our police are unarmed. We do not have hordes of criminals roaming our streets threatening us, on the streets and even less in our homes. In the 60s and 70s, when gun laws were less strict, armed robberies, bank robberies, shop hold-ups and bullion van attacks were far more frequent. These days it is very rare to hear of one. I can't remember hearing of a bank robbery or bullion van attack for years............thanks to the gun ban. Time you yanks grew up, threw away the dummy and nappies and faced up to life like grown ups, instead of frightened little babies.

In Germany we have 10 Persons per 10.000 inhabitatns in Prison. In USA there are 75 Persons per 10.000 inhabitants in Prison. Why is criminal-rate, where we have so many guns, "which make life more safety" so extreme higher in USA?

People visit your country, Tiffany. With gun-toting nutters about they are in danger. Many non-Americans are killed by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I don't care if Americans butcher each other. With your ludicrous attitude to guns you bring it on yourselves. Non-Americans do not deserve to pay for American incompetence. Too many Brits have been shot in America through no fault of their own.
