Is he ready to talk about changing the numerous federal laws mandating the mainstreaming and homecare of the mentally ill?

It's not the gun, it's the shooter.

I have to say this, I am sick of hearing many saying "There is to many guns, "We need more gun control" or "We need to ban all guns". PEOPLE do you really believe that is the answer to the problem? NO IT IS NOT THE ANSWER! The ones that will be affected by all that will be your law abiding citizen's. The criminal will ALWAYS have means to get their guns. So we ban all guns and kick the gun manufacture out of America. Do you think that will stop ALL Guns in this country or even slow it down? NO! If ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION or ILLEGAL DRUGS can cross our borders with easy what going to stop GUNS? Do you remember The Prohibition in the United States was a national ban on the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol, in place from 1920 to 1933. Did it stop people from getting alcohol? NO! Here is a solution which made people think before using a gun to kill was the DEATH PENALTY! EYE FOR AN EYE! If you take someone life we take yours. It people in the ACLU or the NCADP ( National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty) saying OH how wrong it is to kill a murder by using the DEATH PENALTY as that is inhuman to do that. Is it NOT INHUMAN for a MURDER to kill love ones? They are the ones we need to go after and BAN and CONTROL them not the GUNS. Bring back the DEATH PENALTY to all states and watch the gun crime DROP! Also RSweeney is right"It's not the gun, it's the shooter"!


I think that when criminals are arrested and are in possession of any guns (if you have been convicted of any gun related crimes their guns are illegal) their guns should be IMMEDIATELY destroyed. Poor cement in the muzzle, remove the trigger pins and destroy the cartridges. It will keep those guns from getting BACK onto the streets.
I believe NO ONE, NO ONE should be able to buy a gun if there is anything suspicious in a background check. No guns should be sold without a background check or registered. Any guns found on someone unregistered they should be fined at LEAST $5 grand and imprisoned. STIFF FINES AND REPURCUSSIONS and THEY NEED TO BE ENFORCED!!!!!!!
GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE DO, disable the illegal guns you disable the killers using them.
To Warner and all of you LIBERAL Jackasses!!!! If you ban guns you take away the defense of the LAW ABIDING CITIZENS you don't stop the crimes from occurring. Did ANY of you have a lick of common sense in you?

No one needs n assault weapon to hunt deer or to protect his home. In fact, no one needs a weapon to protect his home; that's why we pay Police. If someone breaks into your house, YOU are more likely to die if you have a weapon. The Second amendment is about MILITIA---not about pretending you are John Wayne!


From some of the commentators on the pro-gun side, you can tell what kinds of people we're dealing with. 'nough said.

However, this is the time for all good men and women of this country to DO SOMETHING and don't get complacent as we have after every one of these Newtown horrific episodes. This time, and in the future, don't forget who is in charge and demand gun regulations, and tell all those NRA funded legislative whores, we've had enough and we will not take it anymore.

The gun lobby leadership is dangerous. Its actions are extreme. Its goal is power and money. For years, the gun lobby, led by the National Rifle Association, has undermined common sense gun law to protect you, your family and your community.

It also has worked to handcuff law enforcement to prevent enforcement of federal gun laws. It has undermined the ability of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to crack down on corrupt gun dealers. Its claims that we just need to "fully enforce existing federal gun laws" rather than passing sensible gun laws is hypocrisy.

The gun lobby puts our families at risk by trying to force guns into every nook and cranny of our lives, including the workplace, schools, national parks, our Nation's Capital, and even comatose veterans. The result is that it easier for dangerous people to get dangerous weapons.

While undermining the passage of life-saving gun laws, pushing guns for into our public life, and handcuffing law enforcement, it has spewed extreme rhetoric. The president of the NRA made an outrageous statement that shakes the foundation of our democracy when he cried "The guys with the guns make the rules."

It is not a vision for America we share.
