There is something wrong With our laws when We have more illegal cheeses then assult weapons. Inexcusable!!!
Enough is enough....Demand action NOW.
Many reforms have been thrown around since December 14 - as well they should be. All this one does (I think) is revive a law that was sunsetted in 2004. I can't see what meaningful opposition there could be to it. More controversial - and yet needed - is a law banning sales of clips holding more than 12 bullets (I would say 6). Contrary to what the NRA recently claimed (or so I'm told), hunters do not need 30-bullet clips.
I am against assault weapons such as military assigned on the streets of the U.S. they should be banned along with as assortment of pistols. My family have been hunters all their lives and it is a sport as well as food on the table. Just remember it's not the gun that kills, it is the person behind the gun that pulls the trigger. I'm for code pink but I feel it's the unstable person who should be banned from purchasing the weapon and the black market that sells them illegally should be...

The Brady gun law has done nothing to help stop these crimes. Remember anyone can make a weapon out of a common everyday utensil so when you say all weapons should be banned stop and think of something used everyday that can still kill. God Bless every one and Merry Christmas.
The slaughter of innocents is unforgivable, whether the innocent is six or sixty. I believe all military style weapons need to be banned from ownership by the general public. I would go so far as to say the majority of handguns should be banned also!
Armed guards do not deter violence. It didn't work at Columbine. It didn't save JFK or RFK. It didn't stop Reagan from getting shot or Bradley. Armed police officers get shot and killed everyday. NO MORE GUNS!
Lets not forget Abraham Lincoln. He was also killed by a GUN.
Great point, Eva.
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???
The Chief of the US -NRA said, on world-wide TV that "The only way to stop a 'bad-guy' with a gun is with a 'good-guy' with a gun".........How about NEITHER HAVING A GUN?
Timothy McVeigh didn't have a gun.
what world do you live on where u think u can stop criminals from obtaining guns
