There is another mass shooting, it seems that every week now theres some gunman going crazy.. and it is getting more common.

America is in a war of itself. This country is starting to become really screwed up. When was the last time you have seen a dad teaches his 8yr old girl how to shoot a 50 caliber machine gun?

All these people say "No War!" but yet they turn around and teaches their little girl how to shoot a machine gun? WTF

Media needs to stop promoting violence. And ban guns. For anyone who wants to obtain guns they need to go through testing, similar to getting a drivers license but much harder.

This way things like this doesn't happen.

I agree, I'm for banning guns. I'm sick of seeing gangs having shoot outs on the streets. Damnit, I want to see some good old fashion sword fighting. Let's gets some axes, maces, swords, and sickles out there.

Exactly :P that's the reason why the Constitution gives us the right to bear arms in the first place.

While I support immediate background checks on anyone attempting to purchase a firearm, and I also support a database that holds all mentally ill and convicted felons to ensure that people with these backgrounds can not obtain firearms, I believe it is our Constitutional right to not only possess and bear arms, but be allowed to carry them concieled with a liscense in any state of America. I also believe that the assault weapon ban needs to end.

The truth is that gun control does not deter, eliminate, or decrease the amount of violent crime's. Criminals, and people who go shooting up malls are criminals, will find a way. Allowing everyone of age, with a gun saftey course and a liscense to conciel does more to deter crime then any legislation ever will. Also eliminating ridiculous lawsuits that protect criminals against harm to their body while commiting a crime would make grand leaps in the way of detering crime.

*facepalm* The solution isn't banning guns. Just like the solution for alcohol consumption was Prohibition and look at how well that worked, not to mention made Joe American a criminal. The problem lies with the people who purchase guns. Nothing else. When will people realize it's not society, it's the person?

No 6 year old legally purchased a gun...and if a 6 year old had the gun...the blame is the parents...not the gun.

Making it harder for us to get guns only makes it harder for us to protect ourselves from people who get them illegally.

Banning guns is not the answer. Guns are out there. You can't take the technology back. As they say, if you make owning a gun criminal, only criminals will have guns. Criminals will always find a way to get a gun if they want one. The only people you punish by banning guns are the law abiding citizens who use them responsibly.

The only thing banning guns in America would do is cause more violence and likely a small civil war. There is no way you are taking away our guaranteed Second Amendment.

Look at it this way: Criminals will always have ways to get guns, including people like this psycopath.
If you take away my right to have a gun, you're making me an easier target.

Accidents do happen. It was probably the parents fault for not securing it properly.

A kid runs out in the street and gets hit by a car. Do we ban automobiles? No, we hold the driver responsible.

Guns are only a tool in the murder. If someone was going to murder someone in cold blood they could just stab them. Lets ban knives and other sharp objects too.

The Constitution is clearly wrong, it was made so long ago in history, and needs to be revamp due to increase changes of our civilization, otherwise we will never progress.
Anyway, some states already ban guns.

Doesn't matter. We constantly amend and change the constitution to fit the needs of modern society. There isn't a need to remove the second amendment, and there most likely will never be a need to do so.

Besides the fact that it clearly states that the Right to Bear Arms is reserved for those organized into state militia's. Of course, laws have changed that.

When was the last time you have seen a dad teaches his 8yr old girl how to shoot a 50 caliber machine gun?

Never.
