Look at the statistics! The weapons that have killed the most people in crimes has been .38 revolver and 9mm handgun. When was the last time you seen a HIGH CAP. cylinder for a revolver? You gun hating tree huggers look for any reasons to ban freedoms of citizens.

The weapon used by Jared Loughner to kill 6 people and wound 13 was a handgun equipped with a 33-round magazine. The carnage ended when he exhausted the first clip and, while attempting to reload, he was tackled and subdued. It's a fact that limiting clip size would've saved lives that day. Limiting clip size would have no impact on those interested in hunting or self protection - it would only inhibit those whose goal was to massacre lots of innocent people quickly. It has nothing to do with hating guns or taking them out of law-abiding citizens' hands - it's just a matter of taking away an enabler from someone intent on mass murder.

The 2nd amendment said nothing about hunting! Just the twisted left media. Just another freedom that you want to surrender. NO THANKS! I'll keep my 100 round magazines. The gov can TRY TO take them if they choose.

You honestly think a law will stop this? Take meth for instance, it's illegal but there is plenty of that to go around if you wanted it. A GD law will not stop criminals.

The 2nd Amendment made no mention of 100-round magazines and the only weapons owned by individuals at that time was the single-shot musket. Your assertion that you have a constitutional right to something whose only legitimate purpose is to kill lots of innocent people quickly is absurd.

Every law that's ever been passed has been violated by some. Does that mean we should abandon laws altogether because people are violating them??? Make drunk driving legal again?? Make murder legal?? Make robbery legal?? I mean, after all, they occur every day any way. sigh

These weirdos would have found other means to carry out their sick acts. Gun control isn't the answer, but something has to be the scapegoat! These tragedies have become ammo for anti gun nuts.....bottom line.

So, you're suggesting that they'll find a way to do it regardless, and there's no sense in trying to make it more difficult for them to commit such a heinous crime?? And all so you can maintain legal ownership of something that has no legitimate purpose??

Lets say they do take gun rights away. What are we going to do when these criminals that obtain guns illegally come at us?

Nobody is talking about taking guns away from law-abiding citizens. However, tragedies like those at Newtown and Aurora are becoming far too common to not take some common-sense steps to try and help avoid the next senseless massacre.

they need to pass a law banning mental illness, then tragedies like those at Newtown and Aurora are avoided, along with all the other senseless massacres. This will have as much affect as trying to outlaw guns.

Again, nobody is talking about banning guns. And yes, being mentally ill and still having easy, legal access to weapons designed for mass killings is part of the conversation, as is the gun show loop hole, as is movies and video games. We can't wait until the next time someone slaughters 20 innocent children before we decide to get serious about the problem.

would it make you feel better if they slaughtered with a knife like the guy in China? Or maybe a homemade bomb like Oklahoma City? the problem is not the gun, it is the mentally ill person using them, so outlaw being mentally ill, that is the only logical government response.

found this writeup in an article, hits the nail on the head:
WAKE UP!!!!!-I'm reposting this from earlier to EXPOSE this FACT, and HOPEFULLY get some more debate on the SOURCE of the PROBLEM:In 1957 there were over 500,000
institutionalized in State Mental Institutions and we had reasonable involuntary commitment laws. We had no modern "gun control" laws, could buy your M1 Carbine through the mail along with all the 30 round magazines you wanted- yet mass random shootings were NOT a national issue!!! Was 1957 America a police state? Doctors and judges made the decision who to keep in the loony bin, and they could not get out until they were no longer a threat to self or a public threat. You still had the rights to a lawyer and judge to prove your sanity and get out if there was no basis for the decision.

Today we have emptied and closed the State Mental Institutions, created the homeless population, made involuntary commitment impossible until AFTER you commit a crime- and then try and blame guns for the actions of the mental patients!!! Jared Laughner- parents tried to get him help at least twice but were turned down for la#$%$ insurance, neighbors said he would ride around on his bike talking to himself, school said he was unbalanced- in the PAST he would have been institutionalized long before he shot Gabby based on his obvious illness! Virginia Tech- school teachers said he was unbalanced- in the PAST he would have been institutionalized based on his obvious behavior!!! Colorado- His college psychiatrist was so alarmed by Holmes that she had him banned from the campus, but nothing else. In the PAST- she could have had him involuntarily committed BEFORE he hurt anyone!!! What was even the POINT of him trying to get help from the psychiatrist when all she did was ban him from the school???!!! Even Charles Whitman in 1966, the first of these crazed m#$%$hooters warned authorities before hand by seeking help from Texas University's school psychiatrist- repeatedly! He had severe migraine headaches and extreme anger that HE knew was irrational, turned out he had a BRAIN TUMOR- discovered AFTER his death!!! He even told his psychiatrist he was fantasizing about shooting people from the tower!!! If his school psychiatrist had remotely done his job he would have gotten the help he sought. To this day Texas University won't release all of Whitman's medical records, claiming the deceased "right to privacy"- so the school won't be SUED!!!! Newtown CT- Mother was so scared of her son she told sitters not to turn their ba#$%$ on him even if they went to the bathroom, was in the process of involuntary commitment, but with him not having committed a crime involuntary commitment is virtually impossible and there is no where to send him. 40 years ago he would have been institutionalized in a State Mental Institution based on his behavior. You know where the largest State Mental Institution in Connecticut is? NEWTOWN- its been CLOSED for DECADES! This is NOT a "gun control" issue!
