All assault rifles should be banned. Let me preface this by saying I own 5 guns, all are used for hunting. I do not feel the need to buy a hand gun for protection. From all the media reports I have seen today, all of the people killed in Conn, where killed by multiple shoots from a long rifle, a semi-automatic .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle. There is no, and I mean NO reason anyone should have a need to own such a weapon. It has not protection value, not hunting value, the only value it has is in war, or killing as many people as possible. Again I own 5 guns for sporting purposes only, and to put food on my table. I am not a member of the NRA due to their far right approach to this subject. Heck they called President Bush 1 “a boot licking thug” for his opposition to such weapons. It is time to stop this crap, I am for, and served in the US Army to protect the right to bear arms. But these rifles are not arms that the law abiding citizens should have the right to bear.

Exactly.

Unfortunately, nowhere near enough "good guys" are regularly carrying.

Decent Amercians need to step up and make the criminal element live in fear.

A. I doubt that you own or have ever even held a weapon much less fired one.

B. Your statement that a semi-automatic rifle has no protective value is absurdly ridiculous.

I have to agree. These weapons have no place in our society. They are not used for hunting and too often romanticized by powerless and disenfranchised individuals as though they would provide them with some sort of power and control. They need to be made illegal.

Assault rifles should only be used by cops or military. Possession should be a crime.

I agree. It is getting too dangerous out here. I may have to find another job unless my government passes laws to protect me.

Invading homes has alwsys been risky. If we can get the govenment to limit guns my work will bcome much more safe. Generally I carry a gun, but when raping the homeowner's daughters I sometimes get distracted. With guns around the house, some angry homeowner may grab a gun and shoot me.

I don't worry too much about cops. They are never around and usually too fat from eating doughnuts.

So to all you enlightened people trying make guns illegal, I say thnak you. Your understanding is appreciated.

Assault rifles, not all guns. An education can be a beautiful thing.

You should educate yourself on why our founding fathers gave us the right to own and bear arms.

Do you really think our founding fathers envisioned a day when some deranged kid walked into a school and executed 26 people, including 20 children? I am educated and this right was not extended to us for this purpose. Assault weapons have no place in our society. I will acknowledge military usage, however. So please, save your NRA arguments for another time and another place. Maybe at the local pub where you can throw back a beer and discuss how manly you feel with your big, bad gun. Meanwhile, a nation grieves. As for as the D.O.B. comment from anon, if you were to say that to MY face, I would shove my cane up your a..!

All I can say is you can kill the same number of people with a muzzle loading rifle it would just take a little while longer, when we start outlawing one type of gun where does it end. England has some of the toughest gun laws in the world and they still have all kinds of people getting killed by shooting. All it proves is that honest people will be the victims cause the crooks will always have guns.

guns do not kill people. people kill people. banning guns is not going to stop someone from losing their mind. i blame the parents and society today as a whole. we once hanged people publicly for murder. we once beat our kids with a strap for acting up. we have become a society that caters to those who get offended about EVERYTHING. less government involvement and more parental involvement would be great.

Also... Mrs. B... If the teachers had a gun in their purse 20 kids would not have died. Only the gunman would have perished if a good guy who carried would have been there and stepped up. Save your gun ban arguement for a nation that isnt being over taken by idiots.
