There isn't much more that can be said, thought or prayed that anyone of us hasn't already... today's military grade assault class rifles are weapons of mass destruction. They are available to non-military person's for 'recreational' purposes (for which the military does not use them as they combat instruments for inflicting death).
They are accessible by our children from within their own homes as a result of 'freedoms' granted to their parents by the Bill of Rights, and we have...
They are accessible by our children from within their own homes as a result of 'freedoms' granted to their parents by the Bill of Rights, and we have witnessed our children use them in a manner they experience (train for) in ultra-violent video simulation games with horrifying and catastrophic results.
When does a nation of the people, with a government of the people, dedicated to the preservation of the commonwealth and welfare of the people extract from out of its midst those things which threaten the very life of the community? It does so when its very survival is threatened. If this were a virus, we would move to exterminate it without hesitation. Let this be understood as the deadly virus that it is, and remove without hesitation all military grade assault class weapons from among the common citizenry.
And if there be an outcry from those that would resist and rally themselves to 'quote and defend' their Constitutional 'right to bare arms', then by God, let them join the militia as it was intended and receive their registered military grade assault rifles and all the attendant responsibilites to serve and protect, and the weighty consequences should they ever slack in their duty and be found to the cause of such a weapon once again falling into the hands of a child.
Beautifully articulated brothers.
It's obvious we are all very angry about this.
Mr President Obama : LA GENTE NO COMPRENDE QUE LAS ARMAS VIENEN CON UNA GRAN RESPONSABILIDAD Y LO QUE PASO FUE UNA TORPEZA POR PARTE DE TERCEROS.
PARA MI COMO PERSONA ME GUSTARIA QUE HAYA MAYOR CONTROL EN CUANTO A LAS ARMAS PORQUE IMPEDIR SU VENTA SERA IMPOSIBLE.
Yea right...The guy who instituted "The Fast And The Furious" How many people died over that?!
There they shed INNOCENT BLOOD AND THIS SHOULD NOT SPEND MORE PEOPLE SHOULD BE AWARE IF YOU BUY A GUN IS AT YOUR OWN RISK :(
Are you people ignorant or just stupid that gun didnt kill anybody the person behind the gun did the killing. Criminals dont follow the laws. They will still carry guns illagally just like they do now. Dont get me wrong, my hart was riped out after sandy hook, along with millions of other americans, but as long as evil carrys a .45 so will i. Dont let "big government" take away our right to defend ourselves when no one else will.
Careful with that .45, Kristy. Statistically you're more likely to accidently shoot yourself or an innocent bystander with it than to shoot a bad guy.
I am sure that Kristy has been properly trained in the proper use of a firearm,
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.
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.
AMEN! I live in a little small town in TN, we have not had a murder in 18 years. We leave our doors unlocked...You know why? Because we have a reputation around here. You break in a house here and there is a 99.9% possibility you won't make it through the door.
exactly the way it should be.
I think we need armed security in every school. But not clips or magazines.
Let's all go back to the OK Coral....and shoot um up...are you kidding or still living in the 1700's???
AMEN Its the same way here the bad guys wont do anything here cause us rednecks will defend ourselfs. The police here have told me they cant protect me and my loved ones just to much ground to cover.They said its up to me to protect my family till they can get there.
PERHAPS THE 5 YEAR OLDS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CARRYING
AK47'S? DON'T BE A SCHMUCK DANA.
I wish I could post your remarks, Dana Hill Fiveash and Chris Janine Harringtonton, for many people to see! You both are right on!
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.
O.K. Let's open this box !!! It's a big box.
I could NOT agree with you more, Tomas!!!!
@Richard Ferreiro, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
no its NOT RIDICULOUS.. we outlawed gun ownership, except for law enforcement and the military... who are armed to protect civilians.....IN AUSTRALIA.... ordinary people do not have access to guns.....and so we do not have armed idiots shooting our children....or committing crime such as you have ...IN AMERICA.... CALL IT A PERSONAL RIGHT..
You just convinced me to sign it to offset your voice.
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 believe we can achieve such greatness.
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
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
Less guns.........more commas.
You come across to me that you dont care about anything except for commas and your boring British culture
I care for peoples' lives. You and your fellow macho dimwits care more for your shiny weapons of war than for the lives of others. You are pathetic morons. If being a humanist is a British fault, so be it. Britain is a thousand times better country than America will ever be.

I'm a Christian man and I do care a lot about people . I protect my family and others unlike u that would rather stick their tail between their legs. Guns don't kill people people kill people . And criminals don't obey laws that's why they r criminals. Just face it everybody can't b weak like you.
If you love Britain so much, and you think that your country is so much better than ours, then leave us to handle our own problems. Stop cutting people down because you think you are smarter and better than them. You are no better than any other person.
This is very important for the security...
Nok et bevis på at bevisstheten er i utikling! Dette ville aldri skjedd for ti år siden - nå må politikerne lytte til sine velgere!
