Guess Mrs. Lanza was happy her guns were in her house?

The guns should have stayed there and not massacred 20 children.

The conflict I'm having, is that while the registration of guns is rational in an if they get stolen, you can report it way, when are these weapons ever going to resurface? Will Mikey McCrackhead be listing it for sale on ArmsTrader.com ? Will he be taking it into Gunny McSmithington's shop to get the trigger pull adjusted? I really, really doubt it. And that being said, I really don't think it's any of the ATF's business what, if any, weaponry I have in the house or buried in a well greased gunny sack just over the property line.
I know I'm sounding a bit gun-nutty, but the public's & the Govt's tone of this whole gun thing is getting a bit too hysterical, and that rarely works out for the common man.
You're not sounding gun-nutty to me. Not at all. I'm on your side. I'm pro gun all the way. If they manufacture it I want access to it if I choose so. I don't ever want to lose that privilege.

Unless you get a Constitutional Amendment to alter the 2d Amendment you cannot grab the guns, or the Ammo, or the magazines. You don't have the support for a Constitutional Amendment. An the Supreme Court has upheld the 2nd amendment twice in the last 5 years.

I tell u, this little boy has been staying on my mind. I couldn't hardly sleep last night, turned on the tv soon as i woke up this morning, kept tv on at work praying for a update that he was released unharmed. I can't help but think of how scared he is, the thought of him just wanting his parents, his stuffed animals, his room, his little enviroment, is turned upside down. I pray to God that mr. Dykes lets him free.. He's only a sweet innocent baby that's only been in this world for six years, he didn't know harm, he didn't know anger, he didn't know evil. Just a baby that's all! He needs his momma, Daddy and family.
As a mother i grieve for the mother. I pray that God keeps his hands on u, and keeps u strong, and i pray u keep hope. My heart ways heavy emotions on this situation and its become a part of my every day thought, all day! Praying day in and day out. Chipley Florida

Which is progress for the liberal agenda. Were you so open minded in your interpretation when 2 of the 9 SCOTUS justices support it? You progressives are so reactionary. You have the media and a checklist of things you want changed and whenever the opportunity comes along, you and the rest of you ilk (who feel so superior) crawl out into sunlight and puke on the majority and our rights. Turn the TV from Rachel Maddow and actually look at the world around you. Some of the strictest gun laws in America are in Chicago. 42 murders in January. None by assault weapons. The reason people oppose your selective interpretation of the constitution is because you won't stop at common sense.

That changes when we flip the SCOTUS to a 5-4 liberal majority in the coming years.

Where did I say that?

While I don't believe the right to own guns applies to individual civilians, that doesn't mean I support banning all guns from all civilians. I think it should be left up to the states and individual communities to decide which guns they want to allow people to buy. Some will ban assault weapons, like 7 states currently do, and others may choose to ban all guns or severely restrict them, while others will allow you to buy whatever you want.

That said, I do think the federal govt has a role to play in banning or restricting the most dangerous weapons, just like they currently do with machine guns and other such weapons.

Obviously the gun laws in Chicago aren't strict enough. I've already laid out how they could address their murder problem; allowing MORE weapons isn't the answer.

Btw, "common sense" is we get the guns out of the hands of criminals. Allowing them to keep their guns and actually buy MORE guns is not the answer.

"Common sense" also says we can allow hunters and other law abiding citizens to own reasonable guns & ammo with strict registration and regulation.

I think Congress and all our elected officials need to step up and do something about every gun totin nut living up the street or next door by enforcing the laws to protect people and children from being killed. The NRA wants to keep guns because if the NRA was disolved they would no longer receive money for belonging to their group. The welfare of our children is important and when I read the story about the man of a six year old that had been killed in Ct heckled by gun owners then I realized that the Second Amendment is being used as a ploy by these radicals that never should have owned a gun in the first place. People step up and demand safety for our children.
And just how do you propose we keep children safe?
