Don't sign this! They will use it to say that you support the taking of our gun rights. Make them enforce the laws already in effect. Speaking of that we have laws in place concerning entering our country if you are not a citizen. they don't enforce those laws even if they are caught with a gun no federal charges are usually applied and no deportation. We as legal citizens of this country that have obeyed the laws have the Constitutional right to own weapons and to defend ourselves and the Constitution.

There has to be a better way than the usual "gun" control. As they say put gun control on good people and only bad guys will have guns. We have to stop the under ground sale of weapons. We have to stop the diversion of guns on there way for melt down. We need proper safety devices on triggers. Safety cabinets. Maybe mental health checks before application for fire arms. Keep thinking!

James, did you feel like your rights were infringed when you had to take a drivers test before you got your drivers permit? You obviously hadn't given them any cause or reason yet for them to think you might get in an accident. How dare the government submit you to such abuse!

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 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.

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.

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.

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...

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 stricter gun legislation. Don't be a moron! Pay attention to what is real! 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?
