Sandy hook and every other tragic mass shooting is sad and I feel for everyone involved, but banning guns is not the answer. Anyone who is crazy enough to do something like that will not care about a gun law, they will get guns or do whatever to bring terror. But if the government feels pumped about their ban, lets ban alcohol (people die every day in alcohol related deaths) people die is tragic car accidents because of reckless driving, should we ban private cars too? come on.

I'm not a gun person but weren't guns already controlled or regulated before this new ban?

Ok well when someone has a mental breakdown and they decide to go punch 30 people in the face I think the outcome would be much better then if they had a gun

Drugs are illegal ,nobody can get drugs. Alcohol was illegal ,nobody got any alcohol after that .Speeding is illegal nobody speeds. Maybe if we make if we make toilet paper illegal nobody will have to shit anymore. Odds of a us student being killed by a gun at school 1in3million. Odds of a person being hit by lighting 1in 1million.

Instead of banning and taking more rights away let's punish those who are caught with stolen firearms more harshly. You get caught with a weapon that is stolen you go to prison for 10 years. Banning it is only taking the right away from the law abiding weapon owner not the criminal. If the criminal wants it they will get it banned or not. Drugs are illegal and seems that any drug you could imagine is readily available. Only way your going to get my weapons is to pry them from my cold dead hands and you better be ready for some casualties before it's all over. I fought for this country and my rights and you will not take them away.

I don't have any guns but with the way this world is going I feel like I should be able to own one for protection. If some thug comes to my house to rob it and I'm there with a legal single shot pistol and he comes in with an illegal assault rifle...how is that fare to me? They need to punish those who are threats, not those who are enthusiasts and people who have them for protection.
