Gun ban is not what is being considered, what is, is there a need for a gun to be rapid fire and carry 30 or more rounds. At the sign of any gun control, people start crying, "they are going to take our guns away". I am over 70 and have heard that most of my life. There is no need for a gun, outside of military weapons, carring more than 6 rounds.

Someone help me here. When I was around 15 I got my first gun. It is a 410 bolt action tube feed shotgun that can carry 6 shells. At that time, to be lawful, I had to plug the tube so the gun could carry only 3 shells. Just wondering if that law is still in place concerning shotguns? No one gave a second thought about a shotgun not being able to carry only 3 shells. It always sounded strange to me that a 30/30 could carry 6 to 8 rounds and a shotgun only 3.

don't worry, joe will straighten it out. u know we made it difficult but not impossible 4 felons 2 purchase guns. so now all we've got 2 do is 2 figure out how 2 stop a teacher in conn. from purchasing not only an ar 15 assault rifle 2semi auto hAnd guns and hundreds of rounds of ammo. oh i know we just ban any one except law enforcemen and of course politians 2 be able to purchase them. end of problem?

i am a gun owner i have been around them all my life i dont beleive taking peoples guns will solve the problem but i do think that people need to have a very extenceve background check before being able to buy or own a gun places like flea markets,trader times,the internet ect any ol person can get a fire arm from these places without a background check that needs to change and change quickly

change, It isn't about taking peoples guns, it's about stopping the ak type guns with 30 or more rounds clip. There is not any reason for a gun to carry over 6 rounds on board.

no kind of back ground check in the world would've stopped that teacher from obtaining those guns. and she didn't buy them at a flea market or gun show. so what is you're suggestion now. to the politicain with all of the answers? if you're not a politician, you sure sound like one.

joe, do you think the way to go is to do nothing? Just let it go until it is you child or love one, and just let it go again. We have to start somewhere, why not with assault weapons.

It's like saying, "we can't control the speed of cars on the highway so what is the reason for putting up speed limit signs. After all everyone has a car".

What would you do if you were a congressman?

I want to go back to my first question. Does anyone know, is it unlawful for a shotgun to carry more than 3 rounds?

I looked the shotgun thing up and from what I could find, a shotgun can carry only 3 shells so birds, rabbits and the like can have a sporting chance. If you are hunting deer with an assault weapon you can put as many rounds down range as you like. Guess deer don't get a sporting chance. You can spray and pray with a 15 16 or ak47 and that is fine. Will someone tell me why anyone would need to go in the field with a gun that is carring 30 rounds. There is no need for a rapid fire weapon in the general population.

well for one thing i am a stay at home mother who has really been effected by the current event that has happen and i was just saying that maybe it would be a good idea if people could not just walk in somewhere and buy any gun they want without have some sort of background check i dont know about you but when i send my children to school i want to know there safe and coming back home and i agree 100% that people do not need guns with over 6 rounds unless your in the armed forces it was just a thought of somethin that could change and one more thing know it all how do you know where the lady bought her gun at cause i dont believe that info was relesed unless i missed and in that case i do apologize

If you are going to make comments check before you type,#1 shotguns only are held to three rounds if you are hunting migratory game birds,not when hunting small game.#2 if idoits were kept from having access to guns then we would not have this problem

Mrs. Change ,you didn't read this entire thread or you would see who I was answering,and it don't make any difference on 6 or 30 rounds .one child is one to many and that only takes one bullet.We need to fix the idiots in this country,not the Law abiding people.

People that own guns are paranoid cxsckers. If you are afraid the government is gonna come after you, then you are the crazy one and they probably should come after you.

CHECK THE FACTS, I did check the facts by calling the Va. game comission. They told me that the 3 shell shotgun law was for migratory birds in every county and there are countys that have the 3 shell law reguardless. So that would make me a 1/2 idiot and I guess that would make you a 1/2 idiot.

That being said, what I was trying to show in my, poor way, there isn't any reason to own a gun that will carry 30 rounds or 45 rounds with an extended clip. The NRA loves to use the old, the government is going to take your guns away. What a crock.

You bet one child killed is to many. The whole idea is how to prevent it. We know people are always going to have guns. So what do you think should be done.

Something must be done about the assault weapons. We must start somewhere. What I would like to know is what would you do if you were a congressman or woman? I would like to hear some ideas.

Whatchagot Stew,I dont think the goverment is comming to get my guns,but I dont kill people with my guns.I agree we need to regulate who can have access to all guns and it dont matter if it holds one or 5000 rounds.It seems that most KILLINGS are somehow envolving DRUG or MENTAL PROBLEMS.You were quick to jump back at me Virginia lifted the requirment for shotguns to have plugs its in the hunting regs.Us arguing does not fix anything.there are so many factors that cause people to become idiots ,by the way I didnt call you an Idiot you also misread what I wrote,we need to teach the children that are having children how to raise them.The responsibilty lies on all of us

CHECK THE FACTS, The question I want to see debated, is what can we do. Where do we start. If we here can come up with some ideas, then we can call our congressman and tell him what we think. Some of the best ideas come from strange places. I think everyone agrees, changes must be made, and we must find a starting point.
