We have to repeal the second amendment and say no to most guns in private hands. Guns should be kept at a shooting range in double lock safe conditions only, unless they are single shot rifles for hunting. No one on earth needs a machine gun or any gun that shoots multiple bullets in their home, and that is the truth.

Thats crazy with all due respect. LEAVE OUR GUNS AND CONSTITUTION ALONE!!!

Prohibitive ammo taxation? Restricting weapon types? Forcing everyone to register their guns? It is as simple as this... don't let violent criminals freely by firearms but everyone who cares to be armed for the sake of defending themself and others should not be prohibited in any fashion. The liberals have decided that God is to be tossed out of our schools and government so ONE NATION UNDER GODS BLESSING, and so it is what it is today. Signing a petition and debate is useless unless proper...

We are always going to have evil among us and the only way to deal with it is being able to thwart its' efforts to harm people. We all need to be armed in this dangerous day and age. Further butchering the constitution which made this country the greatest nation on earth is definitely not the right approach.

The guns used in the Newtown shooting were purchased legally. The mother should never have given her emotionally disturbed son access to weapons. Unfortunately, we can't legislate common sense.

This is a multifaceted problem with no easy answer Gun control is a small part We need to do what we can to lessen the likelihood that guns will get in the hands of the wrong people. We have look at bullying and its consequences more seriously, we have to examine our culture to better understand the rage that drives tihis destructive behavior We have to look at the gifts, talents and attributes of every person and appreciate and celebrate our differences We have to relax and learn...

We have to embrace what we don't understand with the understanding that we are all God's creation and we are the expression of the love of God on earth. When we fail in this commission, we fail God and our fellow man The consequences of failure to love and care for our neighbor results in hurt, hardened hearts who no longer value life and the living

I want to find out first, what you think is common sense solutions and real change - if it it still gun control I'm NOT in, because that is not the root of the problem. The root of the problem is all the psychiatric drugs that these kids are on, that no media will talk about because all the media is funded by the pharmaceuticals - if this petition will address that, which is the real cause, I'm all in!

So how do you know the Newtown shooter was on "psychiatric drugs"? Frankly, he had far more severe problems than that.

How to end violence should be the question of focus in our discussions.
What do you guys think of screening people for mental disorders and in order to treat them and lower the risk of violent actions by those with treatable mental disorders? We can prevent suicide and murder by fundamentally getting to understand and help everyone's situation effectively.

I do not think separation is the solution. I think treatment is possible for overwhelming emotions. There are good drugs and therapies that I have used to overcome my suicidal thoughts. Make sure you go to the hospital or psychiatrist and tell them how you feel and they can help you with drugs and therapy. Ask for cognitive behavioral therapy and Dialectical Behavioral therapy. DBT is good for learning to handle those overwhelming emotions. Also what has helped me is existential philosophy...

That is exactly what this about, have you ever heard of the UN agenda 21, it states and wants to take all freedoms from people, the taking away of handguns is a screen for what they really want including taking away the right to own any private property, total control of people. In a few years the world wide population will be so great that the world will not sustain them all, someone has to go, the middle class then it will be the rich and the slaves, call me crazy but I dare you to study up on the UN agenda 21, then call me crazy

I am with Martin, the solution is to get rid of Liberal Politics! The fools that follow that way of thinking are gutless cowards. Stand for the principals that were set in our Constitution! Sandy Hook was a tragedy! Follow intellect not emotions! Look at the statistics! Gun Violence is down! Look at history, gun removal is followed by extreme control over human rights! The safest States ARE the States that have fewer gun restrictions! The more dangerous places to live are where there are...

The news said that this idiot used an AR-15! It was in his trunk! He did not use it! If you want to prevent tragedy look at Fast & Furious and Benghazi! Prosecute those who were responsible for that! This Government is not protecting us they are exploiting us!

One of the killers in Littleton, Colorado, and the killer in Rochester NY got their guns through straw purchases. There are also countless criminals who acquire guns without any background checks. Are you saying that you're okay with those deaths, to the point that you don't see any need to tighten some of these loopholes?

There is a bill in Connecticut, introduced by Matt Ritter, to make gun owners carry liability insurance. This makes sense, to let actuaries figure out risk and to charge premiums that will deter the riskiest people from even owning guns, but definitely owning multiple high powered guns, as these will cost more. And, it will affect guns already owned, something controlling future sales won't do. http://www.change.org/petitions/gov-dannel-malloy-ct-state-senators-ct-state-representatives-enact-...

The woman who owned the guns that killed the children at Sandy Hook owned them legally. If the system worked like car titles, and transfers were monitored, fewer guns would be in the hands of criminals. Both Japan and Australia have found ways to lower gun violence, but through gun control methods. This is actually a way to do it without much government interference. But throw up your hands and call it hopeless by all means.

I'm not going to sign it because it's treating the consequences, and not the cause. Ask yourself, why this happened, if it happened at all. Research a little bit. To create another law, authorities are capable of everything.
