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 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.

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.

So if someone is beating your door in Christina Watts how do you plan to protect your family? In America we still have the right to protect ourselfs. Good to be in America! I will not sign any petition taking away our constiutional right to bear arms. Guns dont kill people, people kill people. The person that did this was mentally ill. If there had been just one teacher there with a conceal carry gun lifes could have been saved.

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.

Honorable President Barack Obama,

Mr. President, my name is Dan Pinedo. I am a resident of the city of Oxnard, California. My emotions have compelled me to express my thought and urge you to engage the American people on a dialogue that may lead to better school children safety and gun control legislation.

Thank you for your quick response in assigning Vice President Biden the task of examining the contributing causes of mass killings and arrive at suggestions that will lead to legislation and policy that will at least reduce the occurrence and the magnitude of such incidents. It is a grave American problem that demands your attention, and the attention of our representatives.

I must admit that after the shootings before Sandy Hook, I have sat on my couch and watched the news reports and felt the sadness, wiped the grief off my eye and expressed my anger within the confines of my own living room walls. With the death of defenseless children and the sacrifice teachers made to save them and left to fend for themselves, as the children that ran across the field and stopped at the gentleman's front lawn to rest did, has not only touched a sensitive nerve, but has brought, at least with some of us a sense of guilt to have been just watchful bystanders in the past.

There is something wrong with the people in a nation so blessed to be custodians of the greatest documents men has ever written for the purpose of people on earth to govern themselves in a prosperous, just and moral manner when they allow their own children to be massacred with weapons meant for war.

The Sandy Hook tragedy has revealed how much we have lost sight of, turned away and become negligent about the provisions in these documents and the communication with our representatives. I can only imagine the disappointment and the admonitions the signers would express to us if they could be here today. We have allowed politicians to put votes ahead of the interest of the America people.

I embrace the Constitution as a sacred American document. But I am one that believes that inspite of its greatness, flaws not foreseen at its signing and at its amending and obsolescence of some of its provisions have been revealed by time. Part of our reluctance to revisit and consider amending this document is the great reverence we have for it.

An example of obsolescence in my opinion is the electoral college. With the availability of information today, we should no longer fear that the people got it wrong, and if we did, there is no one to blame but ourselves.

The Second Amendment needs to be revisited. We need to re-examine its original intent, the arguments and the debates that brought about not only its final text, but the meaning of it as it related to the whole human atmosphere the signers envisioned for their time and for future generations, and how it now relates to our time. But then again, this amendment is sacred in itself to most Americans.

Without an in depth examination of such debates and arguments that brought about the Second Amendment, my understanding of it is that, "a well regulated militia", for the purpose of maintaining a states own security is now accomplished by the maintenance of National Guard units. "The right of the people to keep and bear arms". To "keep", I interpret as to store. It does not specify where, but my assumption is that at least one's own home. "Bear", I interpret as to have in one's own person or within close proximity of ones own person as one travels at least within one's own property to make the arm accessible if needed in a situation that may warrant it's potential use within the law. One long standing tradition is for the purpose of hunting. One foregone tradition is the gun in holster needed in downtown wildwest.

The Second Amendment does not specify for what purpose it provides the "keep" and "bear" arms right, but the traditional interpretation is that it provides for an individual's right to defend themselves, their family, those they esteem and their property from harm. It does not specify from whom, or for what violations, which is regarded as wisdom afforded to future generations.

Having suffered the presence of the British army, the Founders wanted to preserve for the people a means to defend themselves against the possibility of an oppressive government. I believe that a contributing factor for that was the lack of trust and confidence, in the success of the young democracy. In time with its strengthening of its institutions such as our judicial system, the rule of law, the press, the checks and balances of our government and the strengthening tradition of our military to uphold its commitment to safeguard the American people, has rendered that argument for the most part null and void, because there are now appropriate means to bring about redress of grievous violations by our government.

If musket rifles were the everyday arms at the time of the Second Amendment adoption, and cannons were the military's most destructive weapon, did ordinary citizens felt they needed a cannon for their own protection against criminals and the government? Most likely not. But if they did, is it likely for an ordinary citizen in our time to ever possess the most destructive weapon of our time, a nuclear weapon, to defend themselves from criminals and government? The answer is NO, of course. Between these extremes, a question remains begging for an answer. How much fire power does an American citizen needs to protect themselves, their property, and those they love from criminal and from government? The answer can only be found in the resulting consensus after a national discussion on the subjects of gun control, mental health, a culture of glorified violence and other subjects that contribute to great tragedies such as Sandy Hook.

Respectfully Yours
