We always attack problems too late and with emotional reponses.

Nothing is going to change as far as evil in our society or the danger of guns in our country.

I's a big waste of time and effort to attempt to put further restrictions on gun ownership - when the criminals always will have guns.

There is not a day goes by that several times during the day that I don't think of the kids that were killed but gun control is not the answer. Just as this guy did he stole the guns from his mom who knew her kid had problems since he was young and didn't do anything about it. If someone wants to get their hands on a weapon they will do it. Whats next a stabbing takes knives out of our kitchen a baseball bat to the head and we take away the bats? Use common sense which seems to be a rare comodity any more.

Criminals do not obey laws. We know that. So making additional, more restrictive laws will only punish the 99.9% of gun owners who are honest and law-abiding. Punish the criminals, not the legal owners.

semi-automatic killing machines should never be available to the general public. if you're caught with one it should be a felony with severe punishment.

papa1,

You're kidding, right? I have owned semi-automatic pistols and you press the trigger once per shot. So what.

Perhaps the most popular semi-auto pistol is the famous 1911 (invented, yes...in 1911)!

I just witnessed a speech (read: teabagger rhetoric) by the vp of the nra. One of the most disturbing spectacles I've ever seen. 1% of Americans belong to the nra and that 1% owns the teabagger/republicans that are still left in congress....untill the next election.

Just enforce the current gun laws instead of adding more laws that will not be enforced

Restricting firearms will not work because the law-abiding citizens will conform while the criminals will not, thus the criminal will be at more of an advantage than ever before. They will have the weapons and we will not be able to defend ourselves, our families, or our children.

Regarding semi-auto firearms...there are criminal elements in our society today who are manufacturing fully automatic weapons in their back street shops and garages. Those skilled in gunsmithing or with a CNC machine shop can do it. If we ban semi-auto firearms the criminals will turn to these black market manufacturers and boost their industry as well as their pockets. Worst of all, we could provide Mexican cartels with another business venture. Just like in our famously failing anti-drug war, we are losing to the criminals because we would prefer to hide in the closet or behind our desks rather than tackle the problem as we should.

People who define "assault weapons" as "semiautomatic firearms" have no idea what they're talking about. That term is just propaganda from the Brady Bunch, trying to push their agenda and remove the 2nd Amendment from the Constitution. They want to reword the Preamble to the Constitution so it reads "We, the Sheeple of the United States ..."

NoBS

The only difference between the military firearm and the .223 bushmaster is that one is an automatic and one is a semiautomatic.
The bullets for both of them are almost the same.The damage they do once they enter the body is unbelievable.They go right threw the bones.Is this what you want?
I grew up hunting in the 1960's.We never had these kinds of guns.It's time to get rid of these kind of assault rifles and stick to REAL hunting guns.

Viny - I don't see any of Stan's screen names here - who is he now?

And, where are all those Republicans who are accused of skewing the poll? It looks to me like the Democrats are the ones sitting and clicking all day long.
