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!"

Before you make staements like this Martin check our uk stats against America on gun crime. Dunblane happened over twenty years ago and to my knowlwdge not one other school has had the that happen to them in the uk.You obviously have small balls that you feel the need to be macho with a gun.

I will not sign this petition or send it on. Yes, I feel bad for the victims of the shooting. Yes, something needs to be done in this country to stop the violence. BUT it is not to take away the rights of law abiding citizens so we can't defend ourselves. Maybe if even one of those teachers had been armed so many lives wouldn't have been lost. Maybe the government should reopen the mental hospitals they closed down so these people with mental problems could get the treatment they need and...

If every gun owner would not gladly give up their guns after innocent children get gunned down, then there really is no hope for this world!

I really feel terrible (yes I cried) about what happened to the children and the brave principal and teachers that were unable to stop or minimize this and other tragedy's because of the real reason, they were unarmed, untrained and unprotected by our government, even after all the events of previous school shootings, the neglect here is not sale of the "big magazines" or "cheap bullets" or "semi automatic weapons" or "video games" or even the "mentally ill" that's where our government wants...

I really feel terrible (yes I cried) about what happened to the children and the brave principal and teachers that were unable to stop or minimize this and other tragedy's because of the real reason, they were unarmed, untrained and unprotected by our government, even after all the events of previous school shootings, the neglect here is not sale of the "big magazines" or "cheap bullets" or "semi automatic weapons" or "video games" or even the "mentally ill" that's where our government wants you to aim your anger to, not really where it should be. BTW did you know all the SSA offices have an armed guard to protect the 5-10 employees. Our government that was not respondent to the NRA's suggestion after the last school shooting of adding a guard to the schools, is a contributing factor as well for our great loss here. The FAA trained and armed airline Pilots and to my knowledge the public fact of knowing the planes have a weapon to respond has completely stopped hijacking and I believe that would have the same effect for our schools as well. I do not agree that our schools should be full of guns either, accidents or misplaced weapons could cause a very bad situation, so one locked gun in a school safe that only the trained principal or trained vice principal would have access to and the rest of the administration personnel and teachers would be trained and have locked access to non lethal taser guns or something similar that will stop an attacker in their tracks, saving lives and bringing the attackers in for prosecution. So with all this said lets stop talking about this and lets get our kids protected before it happens again!

Everyone should look at the actual facts. Do not get them from the mainstream media or the NRA. Look up your own info and then make a decision. We can do that because we are free. That should not mean that the side with unlimited funds should make the policy for all of us. Just because you do not like it does not mean it should be banned. That is why there is no prayer in school. Same situation different agenda. Wake up.
Both sides are using this sad situation to further their agendas....

Both sides are using this sad situation to further their agendas. They do not care about the students. They care about furthering their own agendas.
