As a long time member of the NRA, and an AMERICAN who deeply believes in my 2nd Amendment Rights as a very conscientious gun owner and user (targets only, no animals, or people!), my heart goes out to those families and friends of those lost at Newtown, Sandy Hook, Fort Hood, Columbine, Sparks, and others, but we need more than worthless regulations and banning guns from responsible sportsmen (and women), we need help for these people that might show signs of instability, suicide, and other...

As a long time member of the NRA, and an AMERICAN who deeply believes in my 2nd Amendment Rights as a very conscientious gun owner and user (targets only, no animals, or people!), my heart goes out to those families and friends of those lost at Newtown, Sandy Hook, Fort Hood, Columbine, Sparks, and others, but we need more than worthless regulations and banning guns from responsible sportsmen (and women), we need help for these people that might show signs of instability, suicide, and other illnesses that could spark such outbursts. Guns are not the only weapons available to those that want to do harm to others. Just remember one thing, "Guns don't kill people, PEOPLE kill people!"

(cont.) type firearms, or magazines cotaining more than 6 bullets. Anyone who buys a gun needs to have a background check looking for mental issues or convictions of crimes that would disqualify them from making a purchase.

This was a very sad event and hoping it don't happen again to anyone

I see no reason for an average citizen to own military or assault

I read and re-read this before I signed it. I will not give up my right to own a gun. I will do what I can to prevent further violence. I am in school to be a Psychiatic NP and one thing that did come from this tragedy was the attention mental health issues and the loss of funding for mental health treatment received. I cry even now as I read this, it was heart breaking to the world.

Yes, we most-certainly need better mental health..yet no one has a fact-based prove on why citizens of this great country have a need for automatic weapons yet?? Oh yea...if you dont like life here...try living in another country!

I am signing this petition, and I will do anything I can to help make our schools safer for innocent children, but I DO NOT believe in banning guns or taking them away from law abiding citizens. removing them from the hands of good people, who only want to protect their families will do NO good. Criminals DO NOT care if their weapon is illegal. They intend to do harm and spend their life in prison, or die. They do NOT follow the law and no matter what kind of laws they impose on the U.S.,...

I am signing this petition, and I will do anything I can to help make our schools safer for innocent children, but I DO NOT believe in banning guns or taking them away from law abiding citizens. removing them from the hands of good people, who only want to protect their families will do NO good. Criminals DO NOT care if their weapon is illegal. They intend to do harm and spend their life in prison, or die. They do NOT follow the law and no matter what kind of laws they impose on the U.S., criminals will ALWAYS get guns. If they can't, they'll make bombs. Then, instead of 26 innocent children dying, an entire school will be dead. People that want to kill will not lose the urge because guns become illegal. If anything, there needs to be mental health services available to EVERYONE, and there should be a law put in place that anyone found to have a mental disability is REQUIRED to seek treatment, or be prosecuted. just sayin. sane people don't kill innocent children.

I find it most interesting, no, FACINATING that it appears to me, that a great number of people with guns are familier with the 2nd amendment, but not the "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestice Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the...."

I'm sure there are drinking laws in the U.S. prohibiting minors to buy booze....could the states make up laws RE buying bullets and priceing them a minumum of $4.00 a bullet...come on, give it a try. You'll still have your gun and existing ammo.
