You could take a automobile and run through a public place and kill a lot of people do you think we need to ban automobiles? You do not have to have a gun to do evil! As UHHH said Think before you over react.

There are countless ways human beings find to kill each other.

However, no other method is so easy, so related to impulse or so deadly as is being shot, especially being shot multiple times.

And when that happens, a gun owner can protect him/herself! Get the picture? There are good citizens all across this land that respect firearms and own them for protection, hunting, and target practicing who have had the proper training on how to safely use them and to keep them locked up when not in use, why penalize them? Obama and the rest of the politians have armed guards 24/7 to protect their families and then have the audacity to leave the American public defensless from defending their own families by wanting to removing their guns?! What hypocrites! Criminals will ALWAYS find ways to have guns no matter what....the scary part is, not being able to defend yourself in that situation. Just Sayin'

Hi. Just like to say I own several guns. I have never seen a single one get up walk out and shoot something. I know shocker right. These people out there that start the crap everytime somthing bad happens that we need to ban guns. Well say they do. Then what. Some dope head or worse breaks in my house or yours and you can't protect yourself. Well sorry for all the va people I live in wv. And if someone breaks into my house I can shoot them. Don't get me wrong I do not want to shoot someone but if its me or them they better shoot first. But the problem here is people not guns. Until the ones that say ban them see this point we are will have to keep fighting for our guns. GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE. PEOPLE DO !!!!!!

I also own guns, but no assault rifles or 30 round clips because private citizens have no need for them. Only police should have them.

Actually they are made to shoot. Killing something with them is a choice that a person makes. Merry Christmas.
