If your child was murdered in the SandyHook massacre or any of the recent shootings

and you saw their body dismembered, would your view on gun control be different?  In the Sandy Hook massacre, the first shot to the last shot took less than 5 minutes. 152 bullets 30 round magazine 4 times.
If Adam Lanza had only 10 round magazine available to him, he would have had to load 14 times. Its very possible more children would be alive today. We the people have had ENOUGH!

  • You all may feel the op is politicizing the issue, but in theory, I have to agree with her. On the same day that all those children were killed, there was a crazy man in China who attacked school children. The big difference? no kids were killed. He only had a machete. In Austraila, they banned assault wepons, and actually collected and destroyed them after a mass killing. There has never been a mass murder there since.  Why does anyone need 30 rounds in one magazine? why does anyone need a firearm that can shoot 150 rounds in less than 5 minutes? Personally,I would give up my right to have those abilities in exchange for the lives of children. And at a minimum, I think banning 30 round mags. and making EVERYONE get an extensive background check, would help.

  • The owner was his mother. She had the guns in the house. I'm assuming she had them for personal protection? Didn't seem to work.

  • You need to do your research, Anon. There HAVE been mass murders since the gun reform in Austrailia, they've just used different methods...like arson and car bombs...and *gasp* ILLEGAL weapons. Criminals don't follow laws. It isn't like we just needed a bigger sign outside the school that said "gun free zone" and he would have turned around. Get real.

    psst, that is one of many machete attacks in China, and it's special BECAUSE nobody died. Normally, someone does.

    The majority of gun related deaths are attributed to hand guns.  They don't have 30 rounds.  In fact, it was stated during the coverage of Sandy Hook that the AK was found in the trunk of the car and that the killer used hand guns to kill the kids.
