It's time for home schooling. The Public Schools can't keep our children safe and they get a terrible education anyways. 25th in math and science, and getting worse, is not my idea of a good education.
American has progressed itself right out of the good times.

Let's help by giving it more certainty. Let's ban assault weapons for private use, limit them to militias.

Exactly how would you limit assault weapons to militias?
Would this requie citizens to register with some authority that they are members of the militias? How does this square with our Freedom of Association?
And, which militias would be authorized to own assault weapons? How do you propose on managing that small detail?

Ahhh, Nancy Lanza tried that. I went to Public School, and others in our country. The majority of children don't feel like opening fire in any classrooms. Personally, I feel too much isolation is part of problem. Children NEED socializing. That Adam Lanza was stuck at home with himself, his thoughts, and a computer all day. That's cabin fever material. Look at Andrea Yates, she home schooled her children. Way too much isolation is no good.

if we band guns i wonder is the "crazies" and the "criminals" will also obey the laws so there's not more gun crimes. if that works then we should write laws banding all crimes. lets hold hands and sing kumbaya...peace man.

What is really telling to me, is that, the NRA and the Republican Party, has not issued one statement of sympathy for these 26 families. Not even the good and decent common courtesy of condolences for these people. The only thing these disgusting NRA people can think to do, is, try to push more assault weapons and guns on t.v. programs and the internet. Sickening. To me, that is the most telling factor. The country is deep in mourning with these families, deep in concern, solidarity, and the gun lobbies want to push more weapons.

I commend Dick's Sporting Goods for their actions. They deserve a word of praise.

I believe and support the Right To Bear arms. Everyone mostly does. I don't support the right to arm your house better than the American military or a SWAT team. I suspect there is a big money funneling issue here. Since Cheney and Bush, and a bit prior, Defense contracts and money from wars, is big business. Same thing must be with these gun manufacturers. Pushing guns, pushes up their profits. They funnel it into the GOP.

Alex Jones brought up a good point on his December 17, 2012 show that most people won't talk about. Listen to the first hour of the podcasted show.

Why are hard leftist and national spotlighted politicians like Diane Feinstein, Chuck Schummer, and Michael Bloomberg -all part of the Israeli lobby in America- trying to disarm America.

They are by far the loudest voices going after the second ammendmant right now in America but openly lobby for US taxpayers to arm Israelis so they can defend themselves. And yes, Israel has a right to defend itself but so do Americans.

http://www.infowars.com/feinstein-targets-gun...

http://planet.infowars.com/guns/eric-holder-w...

The Connetecuit shootings were a horrific tragedy but going after the second ammendmant is not the answer.

These mass shootings always happen where there are strict gun control laws and the public is disarmed -remember criminals will always find access to guns whether they are outlawed or not and innocent civilians are usually the victims of mass shootings.

The answer to these mass shootings is to train and arm responsable US civilians including trusted school faculty on how to defend students from any crazies that show up until cops arrive. We need less guns in the hands of criminals and more guns in the hands of innocent law abiding citizens who are trained how to responsibly own and use firearms.

Isnt't it wierd how after the election all of a sudden all these shootings take place and now gun control is at the top of the headlines. You have the NFL (Bob Costas), news media figures, and national politicians now engaging in a full court press for gun control.

Look how the corporate media is promoting that guns be taken away so Americans citizens can't defend themselves from all forms of criminality.

The media is being absolutely transparent in its attempt to brainwash Americans into believeing that we don't have the right to defend ourselves with the second ammendmant. This should alarm all American citizens given the fact our government has been seized by Communist revolutionaries backed with offshore corporate fascist money.

These bought out political revolutionaries within our illegitimiate federal government are now aggitating the rest of the world and garnering hatred against America from countries like Russia, China, South America, and the Middle East.

The type of facism that is now being pushed in America was used in Stalanist Russia, Cuba, Nazi Germany, Fascist Argentina, Corrupt Mexico, to name a few examples. It's the same gameplan now being used on America.

And every time a country was destroyed and remade into a failed state/dictatorship it started by disarming the general public so people could get bullied by the tyrants into further authoritarianism with no way to fight back.

Now is not the time to disarm America. Pull your money out of the major banks so they can't create derivatives with it and put it in local credit unions or small banks. Call out/ vote out politicians that want to disarm America and boycott the corporate media by turning to non corporate news.

If these politicians want gun control why don't they get rid of their personal entourage of taxpayer paid for armed security/bodygaurds. They want gun control for citizens, not themselves.

Americans can put a stop to this tyrany as most people are now waking up from their trances because the tyranny is so in your face.

The New World Order lackeys must be nuts to think this gameplan will work in America for very long being this blatant. Americans of all political persuasion will never disarm -we are not stupid. Liberal or conserative we just love our freedom too damn much.

Come on, you are thinking small. Ban guns and institute an annual, mandatory, psychological test, under Obamacare, for everyone over 18. This will allow us to identify the crazy bastards that kill children. You want to make children safe or not? If you care about children you need to put up or shut up.
