Guns were 'invented' for the sole purpose of killing something or someone. Period.

Your such a fool. So what was the knife invented for? What about those pesky rocks people hit each other with and die from? Or their pesky fingers around each other's throats. You have no logic. You have STUPIDITY and BLINDNESS. PERIOD.

I am sure that guns were originally made for not only protection but also tohunt for food for survivial, as you stated Danny. These folks that are so against them, hope they are never in a situation where they wished they had one for survival or to protect their property when the police are not anywhere near to help them.

aH, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL TO USE A GUN--WHICH ROCKS, KNIVES AND HANDS REQUIRED..........THAT'S WHY YOU DON'T SEE MANY PEOPLE KILLED WITH ROCKS, KNIVES OR HANDS......TOO SQUIMISH, ARE MOST PEOPLE TO KILL UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL.

Mark Potts .... knives were invented for cutting things and rocks are a natural phenomenon .... we did not invent those pesky rocks. Adam Lanza would have had a difficult time murdering 27 people with a rock, knife, or even his pesky fingers. Your argument makes absolutely no sense.

Anne Sherwood You are very much mistaken. There are many more knife and beatings that are fatal each year than there are gun deaths. That is public record. For example, Canada is known around the world for knife deaths and that there are more knife deaths in Canada than there are gun deaths in the United States. Interesting Meg that you would be concerned about your own safety. When is the last time a US citizen with a hunting rifle was a threat to you in BC? LIkewise the places...

LIkewise the places traditionally around the word with the most harsh gun laws have a far higher rate of rape and other violent crimes against women than those which do not. The reason is because women who are armed and who have some control are not able to be victimized. Being armed isn't just a man's right, it's an integral part of women's rights and taking those guns means that you are reliant upon a policeman 20 or 30 minutes away, or a victim of the whims of a rapist or worse. I hope that you live your life safely, but when women disappear every day in canada too and are never seen again, it's mind boggling that you would advocate women having fewer ways to protect themselves than they do.

I chained my Mini-14 down to keep it from slipping out at night and killing someone! Looking at it, it doesn't appear to have ever tried to get loose. Think I will take the Chains off it. Might ort to tie my Axe up to. Oh, I forgot there is no need of that they can kill but they can't open the door to get out, Hell I hadn't thought about that, you would think if guns can kill so many people by their self then they would have sense enough to open a damn door!

The NRA is a fringe hate group, owned by the gun manufactors, they sell fear to paranoid members who will buy more guns. We need common sense gun control. No one is taking away your gun, that is a lie by NRA to push more gun sales.

But who is the "good guy" with a weapon? Everyone is subject to anger and therefore violence .... most often impulsive violence. The "good guy" quickly becomes the "bad guy" once the trigger is impulsively pulled.

Seneca said that, "We are doomed to repeat the history we forget". And, we seem to have forgotten two pieces of important history already. Hitler used gun registration rosters in Germany to take away all of the guns from German citizens, most of whom would have oppposed him. It is also written, in now dust covered history texts , that Japan, during WWII, considered invading the US along its western perimeter but did not because they received information about the high prevalence of gun...

As a mental health professional, I can tell you with certainty that the problem is not guns. It is failure to identify mental health problems early in life. If school counselors were assigned to this task rather than lunch room duty testing, we would be able to prevent most of this problem. We would also be able to prevent much of this problem by stopping our children from growing up on a diet of violence in video games and TV. Gun ownership rates have not changed dramaticaly in the last 60 years, but the exposure of our youth to violence in the media has gone from very little to a daily diet. This has been well established in research on the problem, yet it is ignored. This is the factor that we should be looking at trying to control.

Cynthia Naff ..... while I agree with much of what you said, it is not ONLY the mentally unbalanced, but also regular people who act on impulse. Guns are an extension of the fist and, when angered, too easy to pull the trigger. It happens all too often ..... I think this should be fairly obvious.

The anti-gun folks are in for a big surprise. Our right to own firearms is clearly defined in the constitution, and these actions might be the breaking point for this country. The next revolution could be closer than anyone thinks. Instead of respecting the constitution that made this country great, our government is out of control, and ignoring it. Gun sales are at all-time record highs; why? Because AMERICANS know we are under attack.

I totally agree Lisa. Worked with you at Micron and love your stand on this issue. Sadly they will probably add taxes and fees so average people won't be able to afford guns or ammunition.
