There is a bill in Connecticut, introduced by Matt Ritter, to make gun owners carry liability insurance. This makes sense, to let actuaries figure out risk and to charge premiums that will deter the riskiest people from even owning guns, but definitely owning multiple high powered guns, as these will cost more. And, it will affect guns already owned, something controlling future sales won't do. http://www.change.org/petitions/gov-dannel-malloy-ct-state-senators-ct-state-representatives-enact-...

The woman who owned the guns that killed the children at Sandy Hook owned them legally. If the system worked like car titles, and transfers were monitored, fewer guns would be in the hands of criminals. Both Japan and Australia have found ways to lower gun violence, but through gun control methods. This is actually a way to do it without much government interference. But throw up your hands and call it hopeless by all means.

I'm not going to sign it because it's treating the consequences, and not the cause. Ask yourself, why this happened, if it happened at all. Research a little bit. To create another law, authorities are capable of everything.

Before this cause was formed, I've already honored.
the folks in Newtown in my musical expression.
around Christmas-time.
People, it's time to dispense with your own.
arrogance, selfishness, and personal ego(s).
and go out of the way to do good deeds for others and.
help make a difference for the less fortunate.

I would like to support those affected by this terrible nightmare in any way possible but cannot sign this petition or any petition that takes away the rights of law abiding citizens and gives the criminal element the upper hand. I carry a gun everyday because it is not only my right but my responsibility to protect. I swore an oth 30+ years ago to protect and defend, and I still live by that oath today. It is the responsibility of the strong to protect the weak. If you don't like guns...

I would like to support those affected by this terrible nightmare in any way possible but cannot sign this petition or any petition that takes away the rights of law abiding citizens and gives the criminal element the upper hand. I carry a gun everyday because it is not only my right but my responsibility to protect. I swore an oth 30+ years ago to protect and defend, and I still live by that oath today. It is the responsibility of the strong to protect the weak. If you don't like guns don't buy one, just let me know and I will promise not to use my evil guns to protect you. It has been said that a person in danger will do two things, 1. call someone with a gun 2. pray they get there in time. You never know it might be me that gets there in time. Maybe I should stop and let everyone fend for themselves and I will only look out for me and mine. Stay out of my rights!

PS: someone below said we don't need machine guns, I don't even know where I could buy a "machine gun" unless I buy it on the black market, oh wait that's illegal, I guess all the criminal need to turn them in to the government. I just bet that is going to happen.

James I stand corrected. But my basic point is that criminals don't care what the laws are. And you are right rifles are not the problem. People who use them to do evil things are. (same for hammers and clubs) so why punish the law abiding gun owner. Whats next outlawing hammers and baseball bats?

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.

Why should we show the numbers of people who protest the unconstitutional process to impeach the Chief Justice (CJ) of Sri Lanka? Simply because the Government is abusing the mandate given by the people as some weapon to ignore the rulings of the supreme court. People's mandate has been abused to an extent that the Government believed that the parliament is sovereign, thus the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) sessions could be withheld from the public, when in fact the the people of Sri Lanka are the custodians of Sovereignty. Behind closed doors, some Government members of the PSC verbally abused the CJ with filthy language. By signing this petition, lets tell the Government that we did not give a mandate to humiliate the judiciary like this, and that we demand for rule of law, respect for the independence of the judiciary, human rights, and to respect the Supreme Court's interpretations of the constitution.
Sri Lanka"s law and Judiciary in danger........ruler's and Executive presidency purposely Violated constitution.... we ar invite world community to help us to make voice against these violations....please sign this petition and help us.......http://www.causes.com/causes/640621-help-fight-against-human-rights-democracy-violation-in-sri-lanka/actions/1713441.
