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!"

I want to know what Michael Landsberry's feelings were on arming themselves at school. Michael was the teacher murdered on the job in Sparks NV last week. He was an ex-marine who would have understood the importance of being able to defend himself, as well as a teacher. I'm thinking if he'd had a weapon on him he may have had a chance. I don't know. I'd like to know his thoughts.

Please see my above response. What other kinds of conspiracies do you believe in?

Sorry, but this far it appears to have been a staged event. I'm sure it was well done, but the crisis actors have had plenty of practice.

I believe that we need to identify the root cause of this problem as this is not the first time there has been such kind of traumatic incident and innocent children and adults have been killed. I am sure there were symptoms from the shooter given to his family and friends that went unheeded. Let's dialogue as to what kind of emotional pain and anger and hopelessness and helplessness and low self-worth and many other emotions could bring a person to the point that they choose to act so...

I believe that we need to identify the root cause of this problem as this is not the first time there has been such kind of traumatic incident and innocent children and adults have been killed. I am sure there were symptoms from the shooter given to his family and friends that went unheeded. Let's dialogue as to what kind of emotional pain and anger and hopelessness and helplessness and low self-worth and many other emotions could bring a person to the point that they choose to act so unkindly and destroy so many lives including their own. Let's not just place a mental illness label on the shooter. Let's also seriously look at the role our gun laws facilitated this catastrophe. If the shooter had received what kind of help would he have not done this shocking and inhumane killings? What was going on in his life emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically and financially to do this? How can people like that be helped? Also what could have been done in terms of greater security and protection for the children and the staff?

You are right on. The problem is not guns. The problem is crazy people. We keep talking about gun control as a way to stop the violence while, at the same time, we are cutting funding for programs that help the mentally ill. As long as we keep turning the crazies loose on the streets and manufacturing more crazies by sending them to war and refusing to treat thier PTSD when they're done, we are going to continue to have this problem, guns or not.

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!

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.
