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...

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!"

Realize this Martin. The petition states nothing about taking anything away and says everything about giving

To think that my sister lives only 18 miles away from where this took part. What is wrong with these crazed individuals who are bent on killing innocent children in schools. Surely much more must be done to protect these innocent children who attend these american schools from these mad people who randomly shoot to kill destroying the lives of families forever in their communities. In the UK schools have double security doors which are kept locked and anyone that wishes to enter can only do so by being booked in by the staff.

You want common sense...Then people that have guns and have children need to put there guns in a unbreakable safe or get ride of the guns. Also common sense...after what happen in CO back in the 90's there are still no meddle detectors at the schools. Yes the schools are locked and you have to be buzzed in, but who is to say that you can hid a gun in your coat or a student hid one in his or her book bag. There is some common sense for you. Now damn it let these children rest.

Shooting innocent lives is a crime against humanity and must stop now or else nobody will be safe to even walk on the street any more.

There are many comments which are also perfectly sensible especially regarding investigating the US mental health system. It would seem that all the gun crimes in the UK and USA can be attributed to the mental breakdowns of the perpetrators. Is it wiser to have a petition for all mental Health treatment not to incur charges and to be provided as preventative measures of crime funding. Crime arising from desperation are perhaps best dealt with by having a faire system in both the UK and USA...

Maybe if we understand that the family needs to be healed, a family with a mother and a father who want and love their children and raise them to be good, honest citizens, then maybe we won't have troubled individuals who want to destroy others with whatever weapons they can get their hands on.
