If one more person tells me that "Guns don't kill people...people kill people" I am going to scream. THEY ARE KILLING THEM WITH GUNS! So let's drop the flawed logic and save some lives...please.
Guns do not kill people it is the bullets shot out of the guns used by the hoicidal maniacs in the NRA that kill. Guns will only kill people if they are used as truncheons. But bullets DO kill people rgularly.
so with your logic: cars, alcohol, cigarettes, baseball bats, bombs, airplanes, fists, legs, chairs, electric sockets, ropes, needles, etc. should also be banned
no Andrew, not electrical sockets. Gun control advocates are much more rational than your rebuttals are. (cigarettes, yes..ban them too)
Thank you from Sandy Hook, don't let their death be in vane...
Suppose to note sorry, not ditty
I'm with the Constitution on this one. Every American has the right to own a musket, powder and loads. And that's it.
LOL Great point.
I am sorry, but i have to take issue. How can you protect yourself from some nut with a Stinger missile unless you have one, too? Your extremist views cannot address such simple logic now can they?
Jim Calkins: Are you suggesting that Stingers are covered by the 2nd Amendment as well? And you say that Joseph W. Grant (the poster you responded to) is extremist???
guns don't kill people. People kill people. Guns will always be in the hands of the wrong people no matter if you ban them or not.
This is a good example of what must be government by the people - not special interests and money. We must all pull, push and speak out to prevent our country from becoming more if an armed camp. These weapons were not invented when the Constitution was written. Lets be sensible!
lets also remember to do something about the "type" of person who usually ends up doing this sort of thing, young white male around 20. Most of these men if they haven't gotten any help (and not just home schooling, real help) they need to be checked and medicated for the issues they all seem to have. We as a country need to start telling our children about the effects of bullying and how to help others with these social disorders. By allowing them to play violent video games and watch...

We as a country need to start telling our children about the effects of bullying and how to help others with these social disorders. By allowing them to play violent video games and watch violent TV/movies and allowing them target practice with all your guns you(the parent) are setting him up to accept this as his normal. I agree about the assault weapons whole heartily, but we have to make sure this doesn't happen again by taken a hard hand with our children. If they have any of the typical disorders get him all the proper help(maybe the government mandates it- similar to when they had the draft) because its not just us adults that see it as awkward and socially unacceptable, that why kids can also be taught to accept everyone and end bullying. No one should sit by and do nothing. the Bible says in Proverbs 22;6 Train a child up in the way he should go and even when he is old, he will not depart from it. He was trained up all right but not in a Godly way. God needs to return to our places of learning as well as everywhere else. Amen! Please Ban assault rifles and ammunition that are associated with them, at least give all of us a fighting chance to run away-- as the woman said above, more guns are NOT the answer. Not the right way in which this country should turn. Thank you.
To most of us outside the US, the attitude of the NRA is unbelievable.
The NRA promotes its own type of gun violence through animal *slaughter*. They can call it *harvest*, but violence by any other name is still violence. Hunters kill animals for the sheer joy of killing. The NRA works hard to encourage membership of those who get a thrill out of killing. Why would we let that faction decide about gun control?
Harry Reid, lead us towards a more sane society. The first task is to ban any level of assault rifle and hand gun.
lets get these guns under control immediately.
