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.

I will not sign this petition! The government has nothing to do with the problem. The problem with the people that do terrible acts, starts at home, in the way they were raised. I hate to lay this on the parents, but my upbringing taught me right from wrong. My dad may have been a bit rough, but he did teach me to respect other people and their property. Todays society is letting many of our children to do what they want. Take all there communication devices away for a week. They will...

Also, give your children a Bible and let them know that it is the best love and war mystery of all. Plus the oldest book still in publication.

We do need to better secure our schools, but I was just pointing out the root of the problem. Also, it does not take the federal government to get involved. The local gvernments should be securing our schools. The feds have more on their plate than they can handle.

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.

For your info if we get rid of weapons then we are inviting crime to come back up don't you see with people having weapons we can protect our family if we get rid of weapons we are looking at more invasions rapes robberies so much violence will come from this then you can imagine don't hate the weapons but realize who can be behind it no matter what happens we will always have something go wrong at least with weapons we can help to control any situation that comes up

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.

I believe we should be petitioning for more MENTAL HEALTH RESEARCH instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. I believe that if we truly want to CHANGE THE WORLD we don't start by disarming our selves and stripping rights that make us strong as a people, that should come later, when things are more peaceful. I believe we should help the sick and mentally unstable first, in order to gain a foothold into really changing everything wrong with this SICK and CRUEL World. if you believe...

I b looking at the govt mind control programme, its all part of their bigger picture.Get all the guns off good citizens so its easier for them to round u all up & throw em into the fema camps. Criminals will get a gun with or without this act. So will manchurian candidates. This is just another 9/11 on a diferent stage

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.

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.
