More people have died from gun violence in America than after all the wars since
WWII.Think about that.
Restricting the magazine size or amount of ammo a person can have loaded in a
gun is foolish policy probably being made by people who have never shot a gun
And certainly don't know much about them. A person who practices can
discharge and reload a fresh magazine in about 5 seconds with either an assault
rifle (whatever that is) or an automatic handgun. All a mass killer would need
to do is fill their pocktes with several magazines to have the same ability to
Duh! Of course Barry didn't want to go after Hollywood the same way that he
did guns, gunmakers. Most of Hollywood is Liberal and supports his causes, you
wouldn't want to bite the hand that "feeds" you right?Banning or outlawing some types of guns won't keep them out of criminals
hands. Those that want to do harm to others will find a way. Maybe identifying
those people BEFORE they act is the best way to go about this. It has been
brought up finally recently that our mental health care is appalling in this
country. That might be the first thing that needs addressed.
The REAL solutions for preventing more school shootings...1. Mental
Health changes so parents of disturbed children can get REAL help. OBAMA
PROPOSES NOTHING HERE.2. Violent videos. Every single time we here of a
mass shooting violent videos were involved. OBAMA PROPOSES little - just some
vague research to be pushed to the back burner certainly. So what we
conclude here is Barack Obama couldn't care less about REAL prevention
measures - his ONLY push is to use ANY event to BAN guns. All guns
eventually.Never mind the FACT that banning guns only INCREASES violent
crime (see Chicago).Let's be real here people!!!
Research was done by the Centers For Disease control about the effects of gun
control laws on crime. Their conclusion: "gun control laws do not prevent
crime". Calling for more "research" is a waste of time and money
because it has already been researched but the results just aren't what
liberals, like Obama, want. Sort of like global warming research; keep looking
until you come up with the results you want to find!
What's to research, we already know the answer, why else does a kid dress
like the joker and kill people in a theatre. Lets spend some more time on Lybia
and "discovering" the truth there. This isn't a gun issue,
it's a social issue, it's how we've glorified violence and
ignored mental illness. We don't put the gun on trial when someone is shot,
we put the person who pulled the trigger on trial. Laws should hurt
criminals, not law abiding citizens. This is a FREE country.
King Hussein Obama will protect and provide for us all. He is capable of
creating money out of thin air. So why should we have guns to protect
ourselves? The government can provide. As long as this man has his executive
orders and blind followers, we are saved! Hallelujah!
I have never owned a gun in my life but if I wanted one I would want to have the
opportunity to own one. I feel that there needs to be steps to make people safer
and especially Children but taking away peoples rights is the wrong way to do
it. I also believe that the media plays into this way to much therefore
sometimes these men or women who have mental issues or just want attention will
do what they can to get it. Hollywood needs to stop making movies that are so
violent as well as those who make these video games. To me they are the ones who
have encouraged these people to go out and kill people. If there is someone who
is mentally depressed or disturbed they see these kinds of things and want to go
out and do the same. Then their names will be all over the news. We do need more
help with those who have mental issues and be more aware of our surroundings. If
the President has those who protect him with guns along with his children we
should also have those rights.
The founders knew that its militias, aka police and military(National
Guard) couldn't always be there on time whenneeded. Therefore people
were given the right to form militiasthemselves. The arms (guns) of a
militia are a military tool.This is the reason an assault weapons ban
would not beconstitutional. (What good is a militia if its weapons areinferior).I applaud President Obama for working to solve the
problemof violence. Disarming good people however is not a way toprotect good people. In Utah many teachers carry guns andwe are not only
safer, but we feel safer for it. There are manyactions the president and
congress can and should take.Banning guns is not one of them.
Baccus, I second your statement of thanks.
Thank you President Obama for taking a stand for humanity and common sense in
the United States of America.
