I live in Nebo and grew up in Western North Carolina. Guns are not the problem, if someone wants to commit a crime of this nature they will find a way. Gun control is not the issue.

well while you are at it let's ban anything made from metal ,wood ,plastic,any thing that can be used for a weapon . how about not being able to brush your teeth because toothbrushes are weapons ,let's not forget the old timey iron skillets that make your cornbread. the gun did not jump up and shoot these people then run to this mans hand . people kill people so for the last time try to understand this .

No, but I do see how stupid YOU are. This man didn't kill people with a car. It is a lot harder to kill someone with a car than a gun, but you redneck idiots would never part with your beloved weapons. Go ahead and run your NRA flag up the flagpole - and take the chance that your kids or grandkids or someone's kids that you know will get their hands on your guns and blow each other's heads off.

It has nothing to do with the NRA flag...its United States flag. The right to bare arms is a guarantee from the Constitution. It is what sets us apart from the rest of the world and the threat will keep tyrany from ruling over the people.

Please dont take this the wrong way, I in no way mean any disrespect and I am very sorry for the losses to these families and friends, but why, if you are grieving would you be on this website in the first place, knowing that the majority of the posts here turn sarcastic and political? I am and will continue to pray for everyone involved but if I had any advice it would probably be to stay away from the forums for awhile, These things are not typicall for providing comfort.

No, we will never part with our weapons! We will shoot you if you try to come in our home and harm our family. We will always stop to help you if we can. We (rednecks) have lived here forever and we take pride in our heritage. We cherish our RIGHT to protect ourselves! Redneck? I guess I am! But far more important that that is the fact that I am smart! Smart enough to know that the crooks would love to be able to walk all over us IF they were sure we would'nt be able to protect ourselveds. Again, I say what a stupid comment !!!!

Actually banning cars would save many more lives than banning guns would as cars kill many more people. So too does food(choking), knives, and many other "weapons" besides guns. So please anti-gunners, get a life.

The thing that never ceases to amaze me is that you want to blame the gun! I have guns and I have knives and all kinds of weapons. If I want too, I can make a weapon out of anything. What are we going to do... take knives out the citizens hands? This man meant to kill these women...He would have killed them with or without a gun !!! Surely you can see that?....maybe not LOL

Stoooooooopid, idiot, people kill people.

If they outlaw guns the only people with guns will be the outlaws.

And you forgot the guy that shot back the other day and likely save his life and the lives of the other 6 people in the house.

You are F_ing stupid in your knee jerk reaction about guns.

UH YEAH guns kill but you SERIOUSLY think by banning guns is going to stop killing!!!! Your banning them from the ppl that need them for protection!!! You ppl are so IGNORANT to this subject its UNREAL!!! If a criminal wants to shot and kill, thats exactly what he/she is going to do. and they WILL get the "BANNED" guns however, whenever they want to. Your statement is ignorant and you need to do some research. You don't think you'll need one til you need one! What are u going to do if someone breaks into your home and threatens your family?! BAM!! your dead!! To bad you didn't carry your concealed weapon!!!! oh well, you would help ban them though right?! SIT ON THAT!
