Who here believes that if you take away all guns these deaths would of not happen?

By taking our weapons away we will not be able to protect our families!

So when they use knives, cars, rocks, etc. Are they going to take everything away?

The only answer is to keep an eye on our friends and family and the people that need help to get them help!

  • Taking guns away isn't going to make anything better or prevent things like that from happening. In fact, things would more than likely worsen if our right to bear arms was taken.

  • I don't believe that. Mentally ill people who are not living in reality, even people who are just plain evil, will always find a way to kill even without guns.

  • In the middle east they make their own guns. You will never eliminate guns. Drugs are the biggest business in the world. What does that tell you?

  • All it would do is make more victims ..more Americans unable to protect themselves/famlies from the criminal who does have a fire arm.That would be so sad and pathetic.

  • Good luck taking all guns away. It would have happened whether guns were used or something else.

  • I always point out that the ones following the gun laws are not the ones you normally need to worry about having guns. I agree with waiting periods and I really do not see the point of owning guns nicknamed "cop killer" but no taking guns away is not the answer. Hell it is how half the families in this area get food on the table when times are tough.

  • People will ALWAYS find a way to kill someone if they want to do so badly enough. Getting rid of guns isn't the answer.

  • The suspect in the Gabrielle Giffords shooting allegedly had a 30-round clip, allowing him more shots before reloading.

    Because someone with 10 rounds is WAY safer than someone with 11. That 11th round, yeah, that's the scary one. Nobody who understands guns ever wants these stupid laws put into place, only people who are afraid of them. (btw, feel free to define an "assault weapon" for us, I can't WAIT to hear that one)

  • I think Justmom would be THRILLED if we ended up like the UK--poor, socialized, and defenseless!! Seriously, if that is "utopia" to you...then MOVE there!!!

    Watch this report from the UK, and then tell me what getting rid of or eliminating clip rounds is going to do to prevent or reduce crime!!

    If the criminals want it badly enough they'll resort to ANY means of getting it--that includes THROWING or WIELDING things at their victms to subdue or overtake them--knives, baseball bats, golf clubs, crowbars and any number of other "make shift" can be used to overtake and/or KILL victims.

    Guns are NOT the only means for attacking people!!
