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!"

Taking away guns will not solve the solution 100%, but it's the beginning

I don't mean to make this sounds as mean as it will likely come off, but how will taking the guns away solve the problem - in your own words - don't repeat the liberal talking points. It's better to have your own thoughts, and make up your own mind instead.

It's time to find a solution, let's talk about what we CAN do, not about what we can't or what we don't want to do. Let's get it done!

While the family's of the victims have my deepest and most sincere sympathies, I do not believe in any gun bans. I believe guns are TOOLS, inanimate objects that by themselves cannot hurt or kill anybody. Do you ban automobiles when a drunk driver runs somebody over? Do you ban knives when a mugger stabs somebody for their wallet? NO you do not. I believe that maybe there should be some more background checks into the people that are sold weapons, but to ban them totally is wrong.. ...

It's not the tool that does the killing, it's the person, and if that person wants to kill or hurt people, they will find a way. If you take away and ban guns from all law abiding citizens, then only the criminals will have them.

Something needs to be done to stop the violence that happens in schools and theaters and anywhere else. Its so senseless.

Why should we show the numbers of people who protest the unconstitutional process to impeach the Chief Justice (CJ) of Sri Lanka? Simply because the Government is abusing the mandate given by the people as some weapon to ignore the rulings of the supreme court. People's mandate has been abused to an extent that the Government believed that the parliament is sovereign, thus the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) sessions could be withheld from the public, when in fact the the people of Sri...

Why should we show the numbers of people who protest the unconstitutional process to impeach the Chief Justice (CJ) of Sri Lanka? Simply because the Government is abusing the mandate given by the people as some weapon to ignore the rulings of the supreme court. People's mandate has been abused to an extent that the Government believed that the parliament is sovereign, thus the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) sessions could be withheld from the public, when in fact the the people of Sri Lanka are the custodians of Sovereignty. Behind closed doors, some Government members of the PSC verbally abused the CJ with filthy language. By signing this petition, lets tell the Government that we did not give a mandate to humiliate the judiciary like this, and that we demand for rule of law, respect for the independence of the judiciary, human rights, and to respect the Supreme Court's interpretations of the constitution.
Sri Lanka"s law and Judiciary in danger........ruler's and Executive presidency purposely Violated constitution.... we ar invite world community to help us to make voice against these violations....please sign this petition and help us.......http://www.causes.com/causes/640621-help-fight-against-human-rights-democracy-violation-in-sri-lanka/actions/1713441.

Another thought, Hunting has nothing to do with the second amendment.

The person who pulled the trigger broke 25 laws. The gun was his mothers, and she didn't secure it properly and was the first one shot. Another law will be broken by perps. Notice the same thing in all these shootings; The bad guy was the only one with a gun. Back round checks are not done on someone before they steal a gun. People who lost their right to drive for whatever the reason, some still drive. Hou about the person with 8 DUI's. Making another law won't stop anyone. The gun is only...

Guns kill people like spoons made Rosie ODonnell fat. How about enforcing the gun laws that are already on the books.
