I have been following this issue of gun control for many years. The United States, to my mind, is in much the same position as that of Australia back around 2006, I think it was. The then Australian Federal Government forced thru draconian 'gun control' measures by forcing the Aussie States to comply (that's another story!) after a massacre in the State of Tasmania where some 35 persons were killed by a supposedly "lone and deranged gunman" Martin Bryant. Some of those were a number of U.S. citizens. The Port Arthur massacre as it was known, has quite a number of anecdotal 'evidence' about it being a "False Flag" incident in order for the Federal Govt., to bring in their draconian gun laws. "Google" it guys. Anyways, whatever your views, I put it to everyone 'out there' - what stirs up the public most against firearms? Shooting innocent civilians - ESPECIALLY little children! Just suppose, for argument's sake that the Obama regime "organized" mass shootings to assist their plan to "disarm (?)" the gun owners of their firearms...this is the first step. Whether or not you approve of gun-ownership, how else can a Government bring about a change? They MUST get the majority to approve...otherwise it has to be done by force. Incidentally, the Aussie Government introduced a "buy-back" scheme to take away semi-auto guns and most hand guns from legitimate owners, costing several million dollars. This measure effectively took away some 700,000 firearms, which, by the way have been now replaced by a larger figure of "legitimate" guns. Interestingly, the buy-back scheme had little or no effect on gun crime - only that criminals own "illegal" guns now. My guess is that there will be a lot more "unrest" to come throughout the United States before this issue is resolved in America.

gun control.. lets take away the guns from people with mental problems. how many more innocent kids lives we want to sacrifice? It is a privilege to own a driver license and we have rules and regulation to keep it in good standard..why we can have a sort of reform to stop to be able to get guns easily.Shame on us.. we have to protect one another from violence. It is an obligation.

How come that american's are stupid enough to mix the right of having a gun with decreasing crimes.
if you are either a hunter, a sportsman or an responsible familyfather, you have the right to have a gun. you'l never need a kalasnikov for any of those puposes and you can give your name adresse a.s.o. to anybody. but those who aren't sincere or who have to hide somthing will be against such a law. how come that good, responsible people don't understand that? Isn't it because NRA and other...

Isn't it because NRA and other very big moneymakers are mixing this in purpose? Are americans easier to influence because they believe everything as it is repeated long enough?

I am interested to know what practical alternatives those opposing Obama's set of gun control measures actually have. Elementary school children and teachers were killed at a school just before Christmas. What is the best way to minimise the chances of this ever happening again, while allowing for the fact that there are legitimate reasons why an individual would bear arms?
