It's okay for the government to have assault weapons, because the government doesn't murder citizens WITHOUT a trial.

Oh, wait a minute. If they SUSPECT you are helping the enemy flavor of the month, WACK, you're dead.

What if the Libs of this country decide that Israel is the enemy and you want to help the Jews?

Banning assault weapons is only the START ....

How do you think HITLER was able to carry out the holocaust?? HE DISARMED THE PEOPLE (so they couldn't fight back).

What they really need is not safer guns, they need safer bullets.

I propose that NY Cuomo put an armed resource officer at every public school. Many already have one just expand the programs to all the schools.

You have to ask yourself what are you more interested in, continuing the never ending gun control debate or school safety.

You have to ask yourself if we pass an assault weapons ban, something we have done before in the past or we place officers in the schools which don't have one which would provide a safer environment for our children.

I agree. And it ought be paid for by an annual registry tax on all multi-shot weapons, and a sales tax on ammunition.

I'm with you, robert, make thse who generate the problem pay for the consequences.
ALL Gun owners need to accept more responsibility for all guns in circulation.

New Yorkers for what ever reason love their royalty since they keep electing a family member owning the same famous name.

What are the drug abuse statistics in NY? Bank robbery? Kid Napping? ONE boat captain almost took DOZENS of people to day.

20oz sodas, guns, fema aid, What's next.

It really disturbs me that this is not a priority, this will have an effect right now at improving the safety of our children. Not only do these officers provide a higher level of security but they are good role models for the kids and are helpful in schools just like community policing officers do in urban settings. I checked on my jurisdiction, they have officers at every high and middle school and they have 6 officers who rotate around the elementary schools. Of the 34 schools in my county there are 21 officers and it needs to be 34. If funding is a problem then hire some qualified retired cops to fill in at the elementary schools. They already have benefits from their retirement plans, they already have the training, all they need is the ongoing training to say they are proficient. A low cost workable solution.

All Libs need to take responsibility for the garbage, urban areas of crime in Chicago they have created AND for the coddling MH industry that won't single crazy people out because of their feelings.

We arm ourselves against the society you have created. Period.

So write your congressman, tell him you want to register and tax multi-shot weapons & bullets to pay for protection, and the damage done by multi-shot weapons.
See how far you get.

The following letter was penned by a former Marine and sent to Sen Feinstein about her gun control measure, that has since gone viral. This letter has galvanized gun owners through the U.S. in this administration's attempt to "infringe" on Americans right to own and posses Firearms. The 2nd Amendment is not about hunting, but for keeping govt. restrained in absolving our freedoms and engaging in tyranny towards its people.

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

"I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America. I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you"....

Tell that to the parents of the murdered Columbine children; they had armed guards in that school and it did nothing to prevent the killing.

The answer isn't more guns.

Absolutely ZERO evidence schools with armed guards are any safer than schools without, as was proven at Columbine.

I don't think so, we don't need to look to congress for every problem, in fact I think that is what has got us in to the financial difficult we are in now. I started asking locally why is it we can spend millions converting all our hs football field to astro turf but can find the funds to hire 13 more people to secure the schools for the whole county.

Sorry chump, but like every other right, the 2nd amendment isn't absolute- which is why you can't own a fully automatic weapon or a functional tank or a nuclear bomb.

Every right has limits, including the right to arm bears.
