whats your thoughts and opinions?
i think the only reason you shouldn't be allowed to own one is if you are a felon of violent crime. there shouldn't be a concealed carry restriction. you can afford full auto and you are trained and intelligent enough to own one then more power to you. Chicago has the tightest gun laws in the country. it also has the highest amount of gun/gang violence. phoenix AZ everyone (except for felons) can carry a concealed handgun lowest gun/gang crime rate

I can understand the need for background checks but got control is not really the issue for me. Guns dont kill people,people kill people.

Guns don't kill people, people kill people is the oldest line in the book. I agree it takes a person to pull the trigger but if there was no trigger to pull, there'd be nothing coming out of the gun, would there?

If you look at the national news the same day the shooting happened a man in china stab 20 kids to death in a class room. So I guess they should make knives illegal. If I wanted someone dead I wouldn't need a gun.

"Knife" means an instrument, intended to be used or readily adaptable to be used as a weapon, consisting of a sharp-edged or sharp-pointed blade, usually made of steel, attached to a handle which is capable of inflicting cutting, stabbing or tearing wounds. The term "knife" shall include, but not be limited to, any dagger, dirk, poniard or stiletto, with a blade over three and one-half inches in length, any switchblade knife or gravity knife and any other instrument capable of inflicting cutting, stabbing or tearing wounds. A pocket knife with a blade three and one-half inches or less in length, a hunting or fishing knife carried for hunting, fishing, sports or other recreational uses, or a knife designed for use as a tool or household implement shall not be included within the term "knife" as defined herein unless such knife is knowingly used or intended to be used to produce serious bodily injury or death.

Conn. has the fifth strongest gun laws in the nation and they did not stop the killings. These cowards always go where they know there is almost no risk to themselves. Schools, churches, NY City all ban guns so they have nothing to fear by killing people in these circumstances, like shooting fish in a barrel. The government disarms the people to make it safe for cowards, thieves, rapists, murderers and mentally ill people to kill, rob, rape and murder the public.
The government has no obligation to defend anyone's life or property. Law enforcement is only there to get revenge for the public after a crime has been committed. Revenge is better than nothing but not by much, especially if you are dead.
Conn laws are so strict that it is illegal to even take a gun out of your home without a permit from the police, even on your own property, like your backyard.
That did not stop the coward from taking the guns to the school where he knew everyone was unarmed and trapped in the school rooms.
I have always considered gun laws to be OSHA laws to protect the criminals and keep them safe while they are performing their criminal jobs.

no matter what laws are passed criminals will have guns. what would you rather have to defend your self with? a cell phone with cops 5 minutes away or a 40 caliber hand gun and the intelligence to effectively use it?

The main worry we should have is that the governments idea of gun control now is to control access to guns making it harder to get a gun and the possibility of banning certain guns not like the last time with a grandfather clause but something more permanent with the possibility of making it illegal to own certain weapons similar to Australia

Automatic weapons are banned and have been since I don't know when, the assault type weapons were banned but after years of seeing no difference at all the bann was lifted. Jesus was klled on a cross, should we cut all the trees, cars kill many more than even guns have in our wars, An unbelievable number of lives have been lost because of alcohol. I'm sure you see what I mean.
I wish I had the answer of how to change society and the path it's taking but I wounder if anyone has that answer. I'm in favor of anything that would save the life of another person and certainly a small child. If your old enough think back to the 60s and remember when the only fear we had was the teachers paddle, so you see it's the people who have changed. I would be in favor of banning anything that would take us back to that type of society. Just my personal thoughts but these very violent games the kids play for hours on end could have something to do with our problem. I'm not saying kids are bad, I'm saying they are being exposed to bad things and getting a bad start into the real world.

I'd support just about anything that would at least make children safe in the classroom. If that meant banning all guns then so be it. But I don't think that's the answer. The problem is a whole lot bigger than just the availability of guns. We live in a society that is becoming more and more warped and violent every day.

some people refuse to grasp the concept that just because something is banned or illegal does not mean it isn't available. arm the teachers.

It isn't the TOOLS that make a killer a killer, it's his mindset. Murder has been around since the beginning of time. Nothing we say or do will change this. There are sheep in this world, and there are wolves. Wolves will always feed off of sheep.
