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.

We have a problem. and as long as everyone believe that the second ammendment and the right to bear arms, we will always have this problem. more guns wont solve the problem but make it worse.

I agree Billy Barber, when we had a similar Tragedy in Australia, our Prime Minister then and there decided to bring in a buy back guns , all guns were destroyed that were returned and bought.
We do have occasional shootings, and God forbid it happens again.
Make it so tough to buy a Gun, it shouldn't be a God given right to own a Gun.
My most Sincere Sympathies to all the Families , all my Prayers and good wishes, from Australia,
so many here were Praying for you, at Newtown.

Rob Mugs Mate! Is that why when your troops get in trouble they have to call on us to get em out of it! Britain is a very small place with a VERY serious gun and knife culture. We are not bought up with them so we don't take them for granted. COMPLACENCY KILLS Yet our forces are the BEST in the world. You in the states think that baring arms openly helps? I have many scars some throu battle in the field and some from the streets of London. LOOK LEARN EDUCATE...Make a difference.

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. Those gun toten folks are NOT, I repeat NOT, the militia, as indicated in the first and second ammendments. I can't think of one good...

I looked at some of these comments. It made me feel so sad. Those who want guns and the" right to bear arms", enshrined in the Constitution and those who either won't sign the petition, or say how much they hate Americans. I've visited a few big US cities the past 30 years. What is MOST needed is a more equal and just society, more affordable healthcare for those on low or average incomes, and much better mental healthcare. Adam Lanza clearly never got the help he needed, and his mother...

Adam Lanza clearly never got the help he needed, and his mother was plain stupid to have so much weaponry in her home.

IF guns have to be used, they should just be single shot hunting/air rifles. That would be a big step in the right direction. I hope that a really creative solution comes to the people of Sandy Hook and I pray for a more peaceful society for all of us.

I agree with almost everything you said, except that I don't know how much more could have been done to "help" Adam. His parents had a lot of money and obviously could have paid for the best health care money could buy. There is only so much that can be done for some people and conditions. For that reason, yes, I do agree his mother should never have had all those guns and ammunition where he could get them, let alone actually teach him how to use them.

James Stewart, until we learn exactly how Adam managed to get his hands on those weapons (i.e. whether they were properly secured or not), I'm going to respectfully disagree and say that anyone who lives with someone as emotionally disturbed as he was should NOT have deadly weapons in their home.

We already amended our Constitution, and the reason we gave the citizens the right to bear arms is to protect against corruption by the state -- the very people you want to give more power to. You need to learn more about our history.

Taking away our rights is not the answer, this was a Mental Health issue and having health care available to everyone so that families dealing with Mental Health problems have resources would serve everyone alot better.

Not all families will deal with mental health isuses even when they know the issues are present. There is still a stigma to mental illness in this country and until we as people overcome this stigma, mental health cannot be addrssed.
