The NRA is always against sensible gun control legislation in America. The NRA awards with big cash its twisted philosophical style to US government officials. Other countries would outlaw the NRA on the grounds of being against national security.

WOW. Other countries like where, 1938 Germany, Iran, or maybe North Korea. Sensible gun control keeps guns away from the insane and criminals not law abiding citizens. These liberals are doing nothing to control criminal and the insane that prey on society.

The NRA has brought up the fact the Gov't doesn't enforce the laws on the books now allowing large purchases for resale by not enforcing those laws. Are the first ones to say"Let's put a Cop with a gun in every school then", which was met with disbelief. Now some are doing it. The politicians always had it.

The National Rifle Association-NRL does everything in its power to make as simple and fast for people to purchase military style firearms and quick, multi fire ammunition cartiledges. The problem is such a situation makes it just as easy and quick for a first time gun terrorist, that has no criminal record, to buy such war weapons as that of a law abiding American, who also has no criminal record. Well, you cannot have your cake and eat it, too. Extra security measures can be an inconvience, like closing the loophole to make background checks mandatory at all gun shows, but that is the price to pay when the USA of today keeps reverting back to the gunslinging days of the old, wild west of the 1800's. Of course, the NRA is against any inconvience to the gun buyer and the gun owner.

Military style weapons have been restricted since 1934 in the USA, as these guns are fully automatic. How does a pinned stock or a bayonet lug without a bayonet make a rifle more dangerous? Also, what is a "multiple fire ammunition cartiledge?" Obviously people with no clue are trying to have legislation enacted.

.......... Hmmm,. then what laws were they that stopped the sale of a gun to Adam the day before the shootings? This is what I believe to be at least one reason why he killed his mother. Military style guns are military issue and not legally available to the general public. You are confusing semi-automatic with fully automatic. So please, what are you really trying to accomplish by lying? This subject has been so re-hashed and talked about ignorance should not be this plentiful. I ask this because it really looks like the DemocRats want to disarm America or make it ridiculously expensive to play while passing legislation that exempts them from the laws they want to pass on us citizens. I'm still looking for an actual copy of the anti-gun bill that was written by Feinstein and Blumenthal. He was Connecticuts Attorney General for 20 years and robbed us every day. The media never did stories on his crimes, good job by his father-in-law who owns a lot of media. Could that be one of the reasons the sensless killing of 26 people became such a media circus? Go to a range and get some lessons on safety, use and type.

Military style weapons means a civilian imitation, with much limitation, of military weapons. Military style weapons are not military weapons. But, military style weapons are super dangerous weapons can blow the enemy; the opponent literally to pieces; into shreds. And multiple fire ammunition cartiledges reminds people, to a certain degree, of the military's machine gun which can fire, fire, fire-rat a tat tat, without reloading one bullet at a time.

Did it ever occur to you that the United States of America is too much a gun nation? Or do you subscribe to the notion that with over 250 million guns in the USA; that such a super high volume is not enough? That there will never be enough guns in America? according to you and your ilk?

The clear majority of Americans are not against an American's right to buy and own a gun. What bothers a great deal of Americans is the idea of someone purchasing a military style killing machine which fires much like a machine gun being used during a war. Such a firearm enables a single man to act very much like a small army.

The ignorant don't take the time to learn before infringing on the rights of others. These guns are semi auto firearms that function like any other semi auto firearm. They are not fully automatic machine guns, and do not function like machine guns.
If they are killing machines, why does about every police officer in the country carry them. Remember the police are merely protecting themselves against the same criminal element that any law abiding citizen wants to protect themselves against.
Why does some of our society blame an object rather the irresponsible criminal that misuse any firearm? Do we blame automobiles for drunk driving?

How about a pro-choice stance on guns. If you want one, the 2A give one the right to own one. If you choose not, nobody is being forced to own a firearm.

The amount of ignorance in this country absolutely astounds me. I have owned guns since 1961 and have never killed anyone nor have I ever had an accident with one of my guns. Why do you people want to punish me for others actions and leave me and my family defenseless in a time when crime is so high?

No one will ever take my guns from me nor will they dictate how many bullets I can have in my magazine.

Give me liberty or give me death.

Gun manufacturers put the USA in a great danger; they keep creating more and more lethally dangerous weapons that cost more and more in price. You can see the real reason is to make a much bigger profit by creating a more expensive, greater killing machine. As a result, when a person becomes a first time gun terrorist, the highly perfected weapon this person uses is much harder for others to stop; to disarm than a previous, highly inferior model of such a gun. Imagine the tremendous damage to the USA if Jesse James, Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance kid, Billy the Kid, Sam Bass, and other nineteenth century outlaws would have done if they were able to use the much, much more powerfully dangerous guns of today. These outlaws would have killed and mained people in the hundreds and hundreds; maybe in the thousands and thousands before getting gun downed themselves. Now some people think the answer "for everyone to carry a gun". In that case, the murder rate would soar to the sky in the USA. And the rate of being mained would also soar to the sky in the USA. Police would have trouble arresting people because many criminals would be shooting at the police, forcing the police, in many cases, not to take prisoners. Those that do get arrested evntually would cause too much overcrowding in the jails and prisons. With all the crime done by guns in the Old, Wild West of the 1800's in the USA, is not that how the problem began to start when "everybody was owning a gun"? "Everyone was riding into town or walking into town with a gun, back then?" And in regards to people not blaming automobiles for drunk driving; the police will take away a drunk's keys so that drunk cannot drive once the police pull over a drunk driver and then arrest him or her. People are told in society if you get drunk, don't drive; take a cab or a buss or get a sober friend to drive you home. With a gun terrorist, try to take away his or her gun before he or she kills someone or hurts someone who is an innocent person and the gun lobby screams at you. Only after the gun terrorist kills or mains someone who is an innocent person is when the gun lobby agrees with you.
