What do you mean to make a promise? DO WE HAVE A PLAN? I don't see anything about putting metal detectors at all doorways and extra security people. Best of both worlds. Safer for our kids and adds more jobs to the list. METAL DETECTORS........ Think about it. Or just home school our kids and no one socialize with anyone. stay hidden in our homes scarred to death. We need an answer and a plan now, before this happens again! Time is ticking away. Please help. I am worried for my children and others.

I will only sign the petition because I am very saddened by the tragic events in Newtown, CT. That being said, I am really tired of hearing about how we need to have better gun control laws! What makes people and lawmakers think that the criminals and mentally ill people who gain possession of firearms of ANY kind obey these laws? Cook County in Illinois has some of the STRICTEST gun laws in the entire nation, and yet the crime rate there is on the rise! At the end of 2012, there were...

Cook County in Illinois has some of the STRICTEST gun laws in the entire nation, and yet the crime rate there is on the rise! At the end of 2012, there were over 500 murders in Chicago, alone - making last year one of the deadliest years since 2008! Guns aren't the problem - controlling the CRIMINAL ELEMENT is the problem - i.e.: Gang bangers and those who need to be institutionalized for severe mental disorders! Quit blaming inanimate objects for the crime.... a gun sitting in a locked cabinet, or on a table will not do anything by itself, if it is left alone!

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...
