I will not be signing this petition as the author did not specify what type of "real change" they are wanting to come about. In a world where agendas are being pushed every day, wording is important. As well as the understanding of it. You must be ever vigilant or you could sign your rights away without even realizing it.

And while this petition doesn't specifically say they are for the enactment anti- gun laws, it reeks to high heavens of it, in my personal opinion. Remember folks, our Second Amendment wasn't put into place to protect hunters, it was enacted to protect the citizens from tyranny by meeting force with like force! Look at history! Hitler first disarmed the people before completely taking over and they were left powerless to fight back.

Furthermore, If we are disarmed the crime rate will not fall, it will just leave law abiding citizens with no way of defending themselves from those who are criminals and have not given up their guns.

James, NYC gun-death rate has fallen drastically. I believe it now has the second lowest rate per capita of all major US cities. Bloomberg gives partial credit to the gun laws, as well as other measures the city has taken

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.

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...

Signing a petition and debate is useless unless proper action is taken to do what is right. 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 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 from one another. 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.

Maybe the need for box cutters should be ban, Some years ago a few men killed 3,000 people with them.. Or maybe. It had to be the law bidding people that did that to.

It's clear that we cannot, as a people, act responsibly. We have become irresponsible, produced by a society that honors the almighty dollar, and our need to be "free" and unimcumbered, along with a huge dose of lack of common sense. So, I'm with you Clark and Bob. Your not taking away any ones rights, they should have never had them in the first place. Those gun toten folks are NOT, I repeat NOT, the militia, as indicated in the first and second ammendments. I can't think of one good...

Get a alarm system and a big dog. And, yippee for my President if he does something that should have been done a long time by those with NO GUTS.
