So often people forget the reason we have the right to bear arms is to protect us from our own government. I see the need in background checks to try and keep guns out of the hands of some people,but I am greatly troubled by the fact that some people feel that all firearms should be removed from the hands of the public. I fear a dysfuncional government that operates day to day as if the will of the american people is not as important as the will of big business or other special interest. If...

I fear a dysfuncional government that operates day to day as if the will of the american people is not as important as the will of big business or other special interest. If people think things are bad now, just wait and see what will happen if there is an unarmed populace. Look at history and see what happens when you give up your rights so they can keep you safe. The big problem is that it is real easy to lose your rights,but much harder to get them back. When those that are in power, do not relinquish it, they want more.

Craig ..... the argument you offer for a rampant gun culture is weak, tired and debunked (no offense). If the big, bad gov really wanted your balls, they wil have them in a nano-second. Times have changed m'dear ...... because the government has an arsenal unimagined in the 1700's. Should we all have tanks, drones and nuclear bombs as well?

When Hitler assumed power, one of his 1st acts was to deprive people of their right to possess a gun. Obama is leading us down that same road. We must be afraid but use that fear as our moatiavtion to fight back against Obama`s assault on the Constitution.

Stop spreading this bullshit, and read a book. Actually, read the 1938 Reichstag Firearms Act.

For one the president is not being a dictator because a dictator is someone who dose not give you the right to vote or the right to speak or do what you please. For number two the 2nd amendment was made in December 15, 1791 and its been made to fit the United States laws and rights so many times sense then that you still have the right to bear arms so don't complain. number three he has not impeached anything because he has not broken any laws he has only modifide them to help kids stay...

Josefina, i can agree that it would be a wonderful thing if no guns ever existed but they do. Disarming the law abiding public will cause a major increase in home invasions and other forms of violent crimes. I refer you to the Austrailan gun ban meant to make the public safer but has resulted in a major increase in crime. Patricia jines is without a doubt correct, disarming the public would be like removing the locks from your doors while there are violent criminals standing on your...

Lets pull our heads out of the sand and face the fact that no member of either party is free to do the right thing for this country because of obligations to their party and to THE OWNERS OF US AND THIS COUNTRY, namely big money people. Our government works for them not us. This includes the UN and the new world order. This is not an opinion or a theory it is a FACT. Anyone who does not yet believe this simply believes whatever the media ( WHICH IS ALSO OWNED) tells us and has not opened their eyes to the facts.

No Tommy ..... we are not talking about disarming the law abiding public. That is not the discussion. We are talking about regulating guns .... just as driving/cars has been regulated with licenses, insurance, seat belts, speed limits, etc.

There are a lot of Americans who believe they still live in the wild west! It is a very hard road he has chosen. It is too late - there are too many guns and too many people who believe in " kill or be killed." He is a good man trying to make a difference! I think President Obama is a very brave man.

If we regulate guns, there will be fewer guns available. Assault weapons have no place in the homes or streets of our neighborhoods. Nobody is saying that people should not have guns, only that they should not have certain types of guns ..... the type than can kill 20 children in a matter of minutes. ..... God bless you lovely Bryan.

Its up to the people to Remove the president and senators from office. Our Legislative branch are the lawmakers, not the President. The Right to Bear Arms cannot be changed , removed or in anyway Infringed upon! Call and tell you Congressmen/women to stand up and do their JOBS or get FIRED!

It is also up to us to re-hire them for doing an excellent job! It is not our right to own the kind of assault weapons that can shoot off a 50 or 100 mag in a matter of seconds. That is NOT what our forefathers had in mind. They could not have foreseen Sandy Hook and they would be rolling in their graves if they had known that this type of argument was made on their behalf.

Before his speech there were lines at gun stores. All they are doing is making people buy more. If some one wants a gun/new one all they have to do is get some one buy it for them if they can't. Just leave it alone. Make the punishment more harsh for people who do gun violence. Why should we all pay for them IDEITS? Also have the news shut up about it. One or two times is a nu ff they make it so the persons doing it get there name out. Sometimes that is what thay wont----to be famous.."DA".
