I dont own a hand gun but I support the right to own one. Guns dont kill people. People Do! We need to get out of the UN they dont want anyone to own hand guns. Its the liberals that want gun control.

Gun owners!!! You got to stay on top of this gun thing.
There is a bill in Connecticut to ban all ammo mags that hold 10 or more rds.
If passed , you will have a felony charge if you dont comply!!Thats for Conneticut right now.
However, you know how underhanded the govt. is.Could spread all over.
Lets hope the people there can block this stupidity.

I don't support an all out ban on guns but they do need to be better managed than they have been. A well regulated milital is just that, well regulated. With rights and freedoms comes responsibility. Better background checks should be in place. We ask more of people who get a driver's license in order to prove they are fit to drive and they are asked to periodically renew it!
Also, what legitimate reason is there to posess an assault rifle or such weapons?
The country should also reinvest in a more comprehensive ental health system,care making it available for those who need it most before they go into crisis and act that out on others.

What does that have to do with the right to keep and bear arms?

Don't you know the difference between a right and a privilege?
Do you really want to manage firearms like automobiles?

Where there is a right, need is not relevant.

They need to want it. That's the way the laws are written.

I support an assault rifle ban, those guns do not belong in homes, but taking people handguns is another thing.

What is it about an "assault" rifle that bothers you, Joe?

Complete disregard for people's right to defend themselves and it would be rediculous.

We are seeing a similar response in the Newtown situation. I have absolutely no judgement whatsoever on you, however, people are thinking and responding from their hearts, which should be ok but with the terrible condition of the world is not. I would not want to be prevented by law from protecting my family from someone because I'm not allowed to own a firearm.
I respect your response and the Newtown families' opinions and it is surely terrible what they are going through, they have been offered a "solution" by polititions in the form of gun control and they are clinging to it like a man to a sinking boat. It is not fair to them for polititions to use them for their own purposes.

sorry for your loss it `s hard to lose a loved one but she could just as easily been stabbed and mutilated are strangled are beat to death.if she was strangled with a rope would you want all ropes banned?i don`t think so, look at the bright side you will get to see her again at the resurrection,and the one that killed her was mentally deranged.stop and think from the mind not the heart.evey case of mass killings has been documented as mentally deranged.
