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 won't be signing either....the first thing that happened was a meeting of the victims to further enhance existing gun laws. Frankly, I believe we should allow EVERYONE to carry guns----then, at least we would know for sure that the law-abiding citizens are carrying! Perhaps THAT would cause criminals to hesitate....knowing we all have weapons!
I am a retired teacher.....who greatly sympathizes with the families here....but unless I have a direct say in what will transpire---I no longer...

I am a retired teacher.....who greatly sympathizes with the families here....but unless I have a direct say in what will transpire---I no longer trust our government to act as the people want.....the government has become one that acts as a big brother----passing new laws daily----to keep us "safe".....
Too many laws...too many people in authority....to many people running our lives.

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...

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 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!
