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 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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a multifaceted problem with no easy answer Gun control is a small part We need to do what we can to lessen the likelihood that guns will get in the hands of the wrong people. We have look at bullying and its consequences more seriously, we have to examine our culture to better understand the rage that drives tihis destructive behavior We have to look at the gifts, talents and attributes of every person and appreciate and celebrate our differences We have to relax and learn...

We have to embrace what we don't understand with the understanding that we are all God's creation and we are the expression of the love of God on earth. When we fail in this commission, we fail God and our fellow man The consequences of failure to love and care for our neighbor results in hurt, hardened hearts who no longer value life and the living

I want to find out first, what you think is common sense solutions and real change - if it it still gun control I'm NOT in, because that is not the root of the problem. The root of the problem is all the psychiatric drugs that these kids are on, that no media will talk about because all the media is funded by the pharmaceuticals - if this petition will address that, which is the real cause, I'm all in!

Dont let your judgment be clouded and do some research. Find out what would happen if you dissarm all of america. Who will protect u then ....obama fone.... Our fantastic and timely police force? Or maybe china will protect u. They support taking away our personal protection ask them to protect ur family in crisis... Ya right america.. Ya right

I do apologize but your argument doesn't make any sense I didn't say anything about air missiles in nuclear weapons. on top of that doesn't matter what size going to have our how many bullets are inside the clips the clip can be changed out in a matter of moments. in the wrong hands any an animate objects can be used as a weapon your argument is ridiculous this is the government slowly taking our rights piece by piece in using media to allow us to except the idea

I will not sign this petition. We need to lose some of the anti gun laws on the books. We need to have stiffer penalties for crimes. Not more useless laws. Last time I checked Meth and cocaine were illegal, but readily available to anyone who wants it. I thought murder was against the law also. If more good people had guns, bad people with guns would be stopped sooner.

I'm also for the right of law abiding citizens to carry guns. Most people are as well. But I'm not in factor of the current laws that allow criminals to purchase guns without registration or background checks. Or that allow for straw purchases. If you're a law abiding registered gun owner, wouldn't you want everyone else to be on the same level playing field as you?

James, how do you think the guns GET to the black market? If you understood this process more clearly you would also u derstand that if the ATF had broader powers to prosecute rogue gun show dealers, and could implement a better tracking system there would be fewer gunss ending up in the black market. Would it get rid of them entirely? Of...

James, that's not what I meant. I left out a crucial word. I meant "man power". The ATF isn't efficient because it lacks the proper funding and man power. It's meaningless to declare something illegal, like straw sales if it can't be enforced. Also, the ATF can only go as far as the laws allowed. As it stands now, there is no federal law requiring background checks for gun show or private sales. I'd like to see that changed. And as far as not proposing anything, you haven't suggested anything. Pot calling the kettle black, as I see it.
