guns don't kill its the one who holds it , an makes that call , if anything should be done about the deaths of all them people the school shouldn't have let the man just walk in all doors should of been locked from the out side.. you cant help or stop crazy people from going nuts.. Obama don't give a shit all he wanted was to be the first black man in the big office..
i am not racist thank u much . I HAVE A LOT OF BLACK FIRENDS WHO SAY THE SAME THING
If he is allowed to take our guns what will he take next? I do agree all gun owners need a background check and if they sell they should only sell back to licensed gun shops with proper credentials!
He is not even suggesting that he take your guns ..... only regulate access to them. This is sane and rational.
2 WORDS, TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT! NEED I SAY MORE?
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.
agree with the mental health view only
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.
Is obvious that you hate President Obama, can you read?>>> PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA<<<, a black guy from Hawaii, a president that was re-elected and a good one, despite all the bad karma oozing from whites rednecks like you, and we now know that everything that President Obama stands for, people like you will be against,...but guess what: PRESIDENT OBAMA doesn't give a s....
Chicago stricted GUN laws - Highest murder rate in 2012.
Obama's Home City Chicago; stricted GUN laws - Highest murder rate in 2012.
Check out how gun crime rates have been doing in England since they enacted their gun bans. Gun Crime up 40%.
More fear-mongering propaganda bullshit.
No Nate ..... you need to dig a little further.
I absolutely agree with his proposal. I am proud of our President for having some guts to stand up about this. I believe I have the right not to be shot by an easily acquired weapon.
and the right to get shot in your home will the next.
then Why does he go OUT shooting Skeet? I hope U find a Mugger that agrees with YOU! BTW do You know the word "INFRINGE"
infringe - Merriam-Webster Online
to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another <infringe a patent>. 2. obsolete : defeat, frustrate. intransitive verb. : encroach —used with on
This is the need of present. Every sane person should endorse it.
So if a person supports the constitution is insane? That statement is insane. I served my country, so you think I am a bad person because I am pro 2nd amendment? That is asinine.
Nelson Swiger Jr. .... There are many of us who are also "pro 2nd amendment", but want regulation of guns. Wanting gun regulation does coincide with supporting the constitution.
When they've taken away all of our rights maybe then we will be "safe".
Why don't you follow the UK! re Gun Laws, each State should be responsible for their own inhabitant's, this could be checked every 3 to 5 yrs
No THAY WILL!!!!!
