Here are SOME of the senseless gun shootings and deaths from the last 8 days. This goes on endlessly. And as more and more guns are sold, guess what? More and more shootings and deaths occur.

Support your communities and politicians that vow to strengthen our nation's gun safety laws. Don't listen to Republicans and the NRA, more guns is NEVER the answer. This madness must stop. The time to start is now. Help out, get involved!

Those are all EXCELLENT examples of WHY I should own and carry a firearm.

... and also why you should'nt allow your dog access to your 'unloaded' firearm.

You should do a list of people who died in car wrecks.....I believe we would all be safer walking to destinations.

What you people will not get through your thick skulls is even if you outlaw all guns, the law abiding citizens will turn in their weapons (at least some of them will), but none, nada, zero of the criminals will give up their weapons. So the law abiding citizens are left defenseless.

However, in the deep recesses of my mind, I fear that you are part of the far left agenda to disarm the masses in order that those who are trying to convert our country to a socialist/communist state can do so without armed resistance from the masses. Is that REALLY what you are all about?

Lower your tinfoil shields there dude, the guy is merely posting his opinion about too many guns being too available to too many people. He is entitled to post and persuade as many or as few readers as possible. Personally, I say he's right and judging by some of the comments he's received, he's firing on all cylinders to making a good case for better gun controls and regulations.

I was thinking about this today.....If the government was to put a ban on all guns and "unarm" the citizens of this county, how could they possibly collect ALL of the guns?

Our goal is total government control. Once we have disarmed the population we can do anything we want. All the wealth of the nation will be transferred to Washington D. C. and we will live like kings. All our subjects will be equal and worship us as gods, and we as wise leaders will build a new world order. The only humans allowed have guns will be members of our inter circle jerk. Thats right, a communist world with us elite jerk leaders at the top all knowing and all seeing. But mainly the only humans with guns.

I think it's more simple than that. They're scared and 'demand' the 'goverment' take care of 'em. Can't take on the responsibility of thier own safety, actions, or how they will be 'governed'.

This list is so sad. OMG! And just imagine, it only cover one week out of the year!

How much sadness does this list represent? How many families and lives cast upon the rocks? What will it do to your family when it happens?

And we'll read it again next week. And the next. Etc.

Do you really care about innocent lives? Innocent children? How about you shed a tear for the innocent children that have died in Iraq, Iran, Afganistan, and Pakistan at the hands of your government. Paid for with your tax dollars. Do you know how man children died in Iraq from US sanctions? Only God can tell you how many lives have been negatively affected by these deaths.

Oh I forgot, you are a Christian and they are pagan Mooslims.

Jesus teaches us to love or neighbors as ourselves. To do good to your enemy.

Jack: It appears you feel deeply about all the deaths worldwide. I do as well. I never supported either war. I always felt there were smarter ways to dislodge bin Laden and dismantle Al Qaeda than Republican Bush chose.

But the difference between those deaths and the daily slaughter in our own country because of too many guns is that we - you, me, our neighbors - can do something about changing it by supporting stronger gun laws.

Will stronger, better guns laws and restrictions stop the killing overnight? No. Will it be a cure all to all the killing? No. Will it help save lives in the end? Absolutely YES.

And how can you predict that it will save lives. The areas with the toughest laws have the most deaths.

Ignore the law that felons can't have a gun and felons can't vote then pass a law taking guns away for law abiding citizens. Make's sense to me.

Let's talk about Bin Laden for a moment. Do you know how he rose to power? Are you aware that the US government gave this man weapons and specialized training on how to fight a super power? History truely does repeat itself because right now the US government is arming and training radical muslims all over the middle east.

When you disarm citizens in the name of saving children you are effectively enslaving a whole nation. Give yourself a big pat on the back.

I can easily predict that strengthen gun safety laws will lessen deaths for many, many reasons. The simplest being sheer available of guns. Less guns means less opportunity for a child to accidentally kill themselves or others; fewer guns means fewer guns being stolen and put out on the streets; less guns means less chances of a domestic argument turn deadly. So yes, stronger laws and restrictions will certainly help out without question. Thank you for asking.
