  • The flaw in that argument is that all a person would have to do is save up the bullets. These people that do these horrible crimes plan for years before they actually carry them out. I don't think that would be a perfect solution, though it may help…
  • I just like going to the gun range and firing off a few. It's great for stress relief. Then i also use them for hunting. I would never shoot a person unless i absolutely had too. I'm not a collector, but my father is. He has guns all over, and he's …
  • I think that the issue would then be that most of them would not have been armed at the time. Why would they be? Look at where they were. They were in restaurants, in a concert, and in a stadium for a game. I don't think that if they owned guns they…

  • Not only situations like that, but many illegals never report a crime for fear of deportation. So now we have family crimes and crimes against people who happen to come from a different country that never get reported. Crime is definitely not down. …
  • I think it should be taught in school. If people want the argument that it is a right of the American public to be able to have guns, we should ensure that they know how to safely use and handle them. It is important to think about the consequences …
  • I think it is important to have a back up way to defend yourself. What happens if you don't have a gun in the moment? You need to know some tricks. So I'm glad you do.
  • If we banned guns only the people with legal guns would suffer. People with illegal guns already don't care about the law, so it would just leave the rest of us vulnerable. That's not the answer.
  • I think you've covered all the bases with those rules. I especially like rule number 1 and number 3. Those are ones that we should all learn first and foremost with gun safety. These rules can definitely save lives. it is important to teach our chil…
  • Absolutely. We need to figure out a way to get people to value human life again. There are so many things going on in the world, that it really makes you wonder about the state of the world in our children's days because we didn't take the time to e…
  • I don't think you're going to get any takers. This has always been my point. I don't have any problem with guns, it's a problem with the person holding the gun. I don't know if this will sway anybody else, but it is something for them to think about.
  • Exactly, I have seen videos on social media that shows teachers just standing around and not doing anything to help. I was outraged, but people can't do much these days for fear of a law suit. When are we going to learn that changing the laws so muc…

  • There are so many different ways to hunt, that gun control won't stop that. I know of people hunting with bows right now, and they have guns. Gun control won't get rid of the guns. It will just make it more difficult to get the guns. I'm all for the…
  • The biggest point that I wanted to make is that there are background checks for jobs and credit checks for the apartments and a number of different reasons, and they all cost money. Trust me there are plenty of places that make you pay that fee. May…
  • I was definitely bullied in school too, but these days these kids have so many other forms of bullying that we didn't have before, and it can reach a way greater scale. The internet and social media sites makes it so that the insult can be something…

  • There really isn't a lot we can do. I understand that we want to fix the issue, but there are too many illegal guns and bullets out there. The rules are only going to apply to law abiders because the people who have the illegal weapons obviously don…
  • Unfortunately, the jury didn't read this article, and they found him not guilty because it was apparently self defense. How was it self defense when Trayvon had no weapon and the only reason Trayvon attacked is because he noticed him following him. …
  • First of all let me just say that I am good with guns. I believe that it is the people who are holding the guns and not the guns themselves that are the issue, but I have to say it. The Second Amendment does not mean you have the right to have a gun…
  • I first learned how to shoot a beebee gun. My dad felt that was the safest route to teach me on. Actually no, I take that back. The first gun I learned how to shoot was the gun for Duck Hunt on Nintendo. LOL. Then we moved to a beebee gun. Then a sh…
  • I absolutely agree. We have become too lazy on the way we have raised our children. Once upon a time it was a whole village that raised the child. If you messed up in school the whole neighborhood had the right to beat your behind on the way home, a…
  • I think it's any kind of amour, which is whatever is used for protection. I don't think that it is specifically for bullet proof vests, but anything that is supposed to protect you from a bullet, but is rendered useless with a certain type of bullet…
  • Background checks aren't free no matter what you are doing them for. Why should a store owner pay for something that you want? It's not mandatory to get  gun just because you have the right to bare arms, which by the way does not automatically mean …
  • Stand your Ground is what got Zimmerman off. I'm surprised nobody mentioned this yet because it became very popular after the case. I still say that it was the wrong verdict. You re only allowed to meet force with force, and Trayvon didn't have a gu…
  • I do think that we need to handle the true issues, and those issues are not the guns, but they are the reason the shooters go for the guns. We need better mental health care. We need to stop the bullying. We need to figure out a way to lower the cri…
  • I think the reason there are so many shootings in gun free zones is because the shooter knows that it is a gun free zone, and they most likely can cause the most damage there. There is no one there to defend against their attacks. It is the same thi…
  • I understand the right for a handgun or even rifle for hunting, but I cannot see the need for military grade weaponry.This has made the country a much more dangerous place since people have decided that this is something that they want to have in th…
  • This is what I keep saying though. The people who are buying guns legally are the people that are law abiding citizens. The others may not be getting their guns from the most legal sources. Therefore all of this work for stronger gun control may not…
  • They absolutely do want us to do as they say and not as they do. The problem is that we are not their children. They can't just say do this and don't do that, and then be hypocritical about the situation. There is no way they are going to tell their…
  • I agree that everyone should get a copy of the report, and the ability to dispute certain things that may come up because there is always the chance of identity theft. Convicted felons are now free men, but they cannot get a firearm legally. I am no…
  • I remember once upon a time, a kid jumped off his roof. After watching Superman, he thought he could fly. My step father used to try to use this as an example for the media being a bad influence. I had to tell him it wasn't the media that was the ba…
  • I feel for the families involved in these tragedies. I can also see how if it were truly a gun free place, then the police may not be so jumpy and shoot everybody at first glance. However, the people who are committing these crimes are not the most …
