Do to the brutal and despicable shooting in Connecticut, gun control is at the top of the list. What does the constitutional right mean to you? And does most people even know why it is in place? It's not for just hunters and so called "rednecks". What's your take?

The second amendment is giving us the right to bare arms and give us means to form a well armed militia. That's to defend ourselves agains enemies foreign and domestic. There is too much emphasis on the weapons used and not on the accused. One can kill a person(s) in many ways and yes guns are one of the easy ways. There is so much history I firearms, they have evolved just as we have as a nation. I hate to see a ban on anything

...Did you know..... A 1997 high school shooting in Pearl, Miss., was halted by the school's vice principal after he retrieved the Colt .45 he kept in his truck. A 1998 middle school shooting ended when a man living next door heard gunfire and apprehended the shooter with his shotgun. A 2002 terrorist attack at an Israeli school was quickly stopped by an armed teacher and a school guard. A 2002 law school shooting in Grundy, Va., came to an abrupt conclusion when students carrying firearms confronted the shooter. A 2007 mall shooting in Ogden, Utah, ended when an armed off-duty police officer intervened. A 2009 workplace shooting in Houston, Texas, was halted by two coworkers who carried concealed handguns. A 2012 church shooting in Aurora, Colo., was stopped by a member of the congregation carrying a gun. At the recent mall shooting in Portland, Ore., the gunman took his own life minutes after being confronted by a shopper carrying a concealed weapon. 2500 times last year alone legal gun owners stopped violent crime when confronted with it long before any police assistance ...

I would hope that covers how I feel about guns.. if in the right hands perfectly fine we all deserve the right to our own means of protection

Wow great post! The one thing nobody really wants to talk about anymore. We have our right to bare arms to prevent the government from being more strong then us. I'm not saying Obama is going to control us but who can read the future? History says a goverment more strong then it's people ends bad. Who can say what kind of people runs this country 20 years from now? And did you know the reason we never got invaded? Its not our military, its the armed American people. Japan once said of a invasion in America, there would be a gun behind every blade of grass.

Guns are not the problem. We have a mental health problem. Fully half of the homeless have a mental disorder. We have people with known problems but you cannot do a thing about it because they are protected. At one time in this country we had hospitals to deal with this growing problem. Violent movies, violent games, the loss of morals, the bad language, have all contributed but some want to blame only the gun. You had better take a look around your household.

You know if the media wouldn't make these stupid people out to be celebrities then they wouldn't be giving the next idiot ideals on how to get his fame. Stop saying their names and showing their pictures all over the news and they won't do this crap for their 15 minutes of fame. Need a ban on the media not guns. Oh and I don't feel this way cause I like guns, I can take them or leave them. But I am smart enough to know things like guns, knives, rocks and all other weapons only kill if used by someone wanting to do harm.

My thought? Government has to much power! School guards are good enough for their children but not ours? They are protected by automatic "assault" weapons but our weapons are scary and dangerous? They can kiss my ass and have my guns when I'm dead and gripping them!!! I'm afraid that another American revolution is upon us.! Throw those pieces of shit out of the power seats and take back control of our country!

People may want to check out a video on YouTube. It's called "the sandy hook shooting fully exposed" then people will see that the government and media is all about control of the people, not for the people!!!

Considering that the goverment controls the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Marines, I would think that the "government is more strong than its people"!

I watched the video on utube it did leave me with a lot of questions. But regardless of that taking guns out of the hands of the American citizen is without a doubt useless to stop crime. All you will do is put more power into the hands of criminals, if someone is bound and determined to kill you then they will use anything they get their hands on. Recently someone killed a man with an arrow another with a knife and a club. It goes on and on. In my area the police are at least 30 minutes away. So I guess I will tell the thief or crazy person wait I have called the police,yeah right.
Government has gotten way out of control in this country and when any one man can make the law it is not a free country any more it is a dictatorship period. Anyone that thinks the answer is to take away our gun rights will make this country safer is a pure Idiot.

Of course, I agree.

Concerning the school shootings, the correct question never was asked, thus revealing the TRUE Obama agenda: Does a ban on ANY gun make our schools safer? Not one bit. No rocket science. Would armed teachers willing to train and armed guards at our schools make our schools immediately safer? Absolutely. So there you have it. LIBERAL government is ALWAYS looking for ways to further disarm the American citizen so when/if the time ever comes, it will be much easier to overwhelm us. Our Founding Fathers foresaw all of it. That's why they gave US the right to keep and bear arms.~

And while we're at it? Let's get more serious with these psychiatric evaluations so we can confine these insane individuals.

And think about something else. Why do these cowards target our public schools? Because we have signs all over the place telling them,'There ARE NO GUNS HERE!" ~ Wake up America. Look beyond NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC... NPB... They are all just liberal propaganda machines.

And you claim to be a cop????? If you are then you should IMMEDIATELY resign and turn in all your weapons because you are dumber than shit. If Obama had an agenda to take all the guns then why didn't he ban ANY GUNS? How many has he banned? ZERO! How many has he proposed banning? ZERO! How many laws has he enacted concerning guns? ONE! He made it legal to carry a concealed firearm in federal parks! Certainly sounds like a devious plan to ban all guns. Morons like you have no business in a uniform unless you are taking orders for McDoubles.

Sex Machine? lol... What made you think I claimed to be LE?

You are aware of the liberal RULE to "never miss the opportunity in a tradgedy"... Correct? Has Obama suggested ANY thing that would make our schools IMMEDIATELY safer? There are certain psychiatric eval suggestions that will take years to blossom... but yes... a step in the right direction.

You're not aware of Obama's DESIRE to ban all "military style" rifles and magazines? Exactly:

***Reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban.

***Restore the 10-round limit on ammunition magazines.

***Getting rid of armor-piercing bullets;

Sex Machine? How many different rifles do you suppose he wants to "ban"? It's all black and white. And whatever agenda the liberal government officials have? You're part of it, friend. Spout all the name-calling you wish. You've just been dazed by the propaganda machine or you have something in the works that means money in your pocket, just like anyone else that participates as an enEmy of the state.

Does ANYONE ever wonder why you don't hear these FACTS on NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC and NPB? Silly question... The so called "news" isn't really about "getting the facts" anymore and hasn't been for a very long time. It's all about the "agenda" THAT'S BEHIND THE STORY AND I CAN PROVE IT:

We have this terrible problem with CRIMINAL minded individuals endangering our teachers and children at SCHOOL in our public school system. There is a great desire to REMEDY the problem. The FIRST thing that should have already been done while we figure out how to be address this is to put at least one armed guard in every public school in America. But was that question ever seriously considered? Of course not. Why? Because the liberal propaganda machines have been successful in turning the focus from the REAL problem (which is inadequate PROTECTION of our children) to that of gun control, which even on the surface proves to be no help at all in preventing CRIMINALS from taking guns to schools for some EASY targets/fame.

Another example: The liberal propaganda machines TRIED to rake the NRA over the coals to counter the NRA's ad exposing the lack of action and hidden agenda's of the liberals. They did this by ridiculing the NRA for "including the President's kids" in the subject matter... It was deemed a "low blow" by liberal propagandists... Yet not one mention was made when Obama lined up 4 children across the stage as he signed his executive orders, as well as have the parents of some of the victims in the audience.

Can you easily see the difference between real NEWS and propaganda? You can. But it's up to each of us to pay attention. Watching what people DO... INSTEAD of watching what they SAY... is MUCH more revealing to the true nature of the individual.

Thank you for proving me premise that you are too stupid to own a weapon or wear a uniform. You should immediately turn in both because that turd on the bottom of your Buster Browns is smarter than you even in it's flattened state. It is funny seeing you say that I am dazed by propaganda when all you know is propaganda is misinformation.

Let's review

You say Obama proposed NOTHING to do to make school immediately safer. If you read the 23 executive orders(I understand why since you have the reading comprehension of a 3 year old) then you'd see several IMMEDIATE things such as adding more Resource Officers in the schools, updating the background check system to include all gun sales, tracking of sales and who is buying them just to sell to criminals.FACT: 65% of all guns used in crimes can be traced back to 1% of the gun dealers. I know facts hurt your tiny brain but doing these things make everyone safer by rooting out the bad dealers that make lots of money providing guns to criminals.
The only reason the NRA is going insane is because he ordered the ATF to circumvent all the laws the NRA has paid millions to stay law and report on gun violence. Once people that own and carry guns see the real data on what happens then they won't carry guns or keep them in their homes outside of a gun safe. You keep stroking that gun and swilling your propaganda but please never vote, procreate or share your opinion because you are too stupid to do any of those things.

You know else had a gun? Deputy Neil Gardner, a 15 year veteran of the police force was assigned to protect a school when 2 armed teenagers entered the school and exchanged fire with the officer. Well I think we all know the result, the officer downed the punk kids and we never heard one word in the news about that high school that the liberal news media ignored Columbine High School. Oh Wait! No, those kids killed 15 people and injured 23 AFTER they exchanged fire with a POLICE OFFICER and another security guard.

When Obama's executive order allows the ATF to release gun violence data which the NRA has paid for decades to keep you uninformed then you'll know the millions of other gun owners that protected themselves and their families by getting themselves and their families killed by pulling out their gun in their trained hands.
