    Gun control is a great idea but it won't stop guns. Those guns did not jump up and shoot people…..that evil, evil, evil man did. I am heartbroken and sad for all those families that lost their loved ones and for all the ones that survived and were injured. It is just awful and I pray for them.

    Dear Bloomberg and fucktard celebrities, thank you for turning this tragedy into a platform for your political bullshit. I'm sure the families of those who were slain in the shooting are panting in anticipation about your call for "gun control." After all, that will bring the dead back, right?

    Instead of showing some respect (and quite frankly some fucking respect) for the victims, how about we use this as a springboard to get whatever pork-filled, piece of shit bill in place that will line the pockets of the dimestore human beings that stand to gain from this.

    Yay for you.

    Hate to break it to people who think gun control laws are going to stop murders, it's not. There are so many ways to obtain guns illegally. The world is never going to work a certain way. The gun doesn't make someone go on a shooting spree. The law is never going to stop someone from getting a gun.



  4. 4

    And here we go with the "gun control" propaganda and mass population scare. Think about this people. Do you really think tougher restrictions would stop someone who took 6 months of their life to meticulously plan out the mass murder/attempted murder of 70+ innocent people? REALLY?

    Guns don't kill people…The nutjobs holding the guns do.

    Dear Mayor Bloomberg (and Trump), Please shut the fuck up. Nothing you say matters in this tragedy, gun control only becomes important after one of these senseless attacks. There is no way to control guns and you can't prevent a crazy person from doing evil if they want to. Now go back to your mansions that are guarded by men with GUNS.

    Pleasantly surprised to read the comments and I thought I would be the only who thinks we should be allowed to have guns. Only bc I think we can use them to defend ourselves as well. If someone would have been carrying a gun on them, having a concealed weapons permit, perhaps they could have stopped the guy or kept him from shooting SO many ppl. I get their sentiment: Get rid of them all so there are never any tragedy's like these…but do we get rid of our cars too bc ppl die in car accidents every day? Also, no matter how much you try, how would you get rid of every SINGLE gun in this country? Someone would always have one hiding. You would never know for sure. This is so horrible. Enforce strict rules. People should have to take gun safety classes and have background checks and yes I know not all of this will prevent horrible things like this, but perhaps it will help.

    perez, i love you.. but he didn't get an assault rifle or a bullet proof vest from a gun store. its the black market. you can't control that. taking away the right to bear arms is taking away our constitutional right, what we stand for. working on controlling the black market is another thing. gun control is fine. its the black market that is the problem.

    Comments 1-6 warms my heart that I'm not the only one who feels this way. I think George Washington said it best: "Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth." We let the government take our rights away to bear arms & they can walk all over us even more. Guns don't kill people, PEOPLE kill people. If any of those people in the theater had a CCP & were armed, they could have stopped this madman before the death toll increased. You don't hear this kind of thing happening in Texas or Utah, wanna know why? They let their residents conceal carry. Remember folks, make the criminals think twice & support conceal carry.

    In the end, my sympathies & prayers go to all those who have been affected by this tragedy.

    Thanks everyone for realistic thoughts on gun control! Agreed, no one should be able to get an assault weapon, but just because this wacko got them legally, doesn't mean he wouldn't have gone to the black market and gotten them illegally.

    Always remember the mass murderer over in Scotland who attacked the kindergardeners with a knife. Evil murderers will always exist.

    How come, whenever someone drinks alcohol and drives and kills someone. No one ever says ban booze, ban cars, Reduce the maximum speed on cars

    How come we don't blame sporks for making people fat?
    How come we don't blame pencils for misspelled words?
    How come we never say zomg ban the sell of metal knives whenever someone gets stabbed.
    How come when irresponsible dumbass parents buy a gun and something bad happens to a child we blame the gun but not the parents for their stupidity?

    But we blame guns when someone shoots someone? A gun did not cause this senseless violence. A gun is an inanimate object. It does not chase you down and pull it's own trigger. A mentally off whack job obtained a gun and used it for bad things. For every 1 nut job like this theres thousands of LAW ABIDING MENTALLY SANE gun owners that shoot for fun and would never harm anyone, they don't even want to be put in a situation where that would happen. Why should we have to suffer at the hands of a few idiotic madmen like this?



  12. 12

    FACT of the matter is, there's 311 MILLION people in this nation. There is over 150 MILLION firearms in this nation. Over half of the people in this nation owns a firearm. But something like this occurs what? Once? Maybe twice a year? Come on people..What is funny though is most people with their whole "zomg ban guns" mindset generally DOES NOT know anything about firearms, they never even held one. Why would you sit there and be so hell bent on taking away something you know little or nothing about. Another fact is, if you actually took the time to RESEARCH crime rates involving firearms, crime rates of counties/states/countries,etc you'll find that the generally extremely biased media is full of it. You should really do your own research before drawing conclusions from watching/reading news. Thats the WORST thing possible. For example, in Switzerland every male must have a military rifle in his home..They also have non existence crime rates..Just saying.

    Re: JungianQueen – Marry me!

    We should be thanking our lucky stars that this shit doesn't happen every day. Do you realize there are thousands of Americans who want to shoot up their work or school every fucking day and don't?

    PS Bloomberg is an asshole and always will be.



  14. 14

    way to turn this tragedy into yet another way of spewing your agenda. buttt since we're on the topic:

    banning guns from law-abiding citizens does nothing but render them defenseless from the crazy psychopaths who DON'T CARE ABOUT THE LAW AND AREN'T AFRAID TO BREAK IT. so basically, they're gonna get a gun no matter what. if they are that nuts, they will buy it on the black market or whatever.

    banning guns has actually RAISED crime rates in australia and England:

    so yes, take away my defense and let me be slaughtered like a sitting duck. no thank you.



  15. 15

    The second people take a tragedy like this, and turn it into a political agenda is the second I stop caring and instantly have no sympathy for the victims.

    Re: rebecca21 – I agree, guns are merely tools. This is a mental health issue. Gun control has never worked and as of late has been phased out in Canada because it costs billions and doesn't work. Terrible tragedy, kind regards to the families touched by this.



  17. 17

    Re: kloughery16 – I see where you're coming from, but it's not necessarily the black market. I mean, my husband built his own AR-15 and he bought all the pieces individually from local gun shows (we live in the south) and from gun shops online. As long as somebody passes a background check, they can (sadly) but a gun very easily.

    The minute I heard Bloomburg speak, I was pissed off! This is a tragedy! why can't the politcal whore mongers keep their agenda's to themselves and allow the victims some time to mourn, to begin processing and hopefully start the healing process. Everything that happens is not about politics people! How sad for those of you that can't see beyond your politics. I was so pleased to see that there are other people who feel the same as I do.

    Who the F*ck gives a sh*t what celebrities think. Who the F*CK told celebrities that just because they're in a movie or on TV that they all of a sudden matter so much? They don't. And, what really pisses me off is that they don't address the VIOLENCE in music, movies, TV. Nope…they produce this horrible violent crap and they wonder why people are so F*cked up.



  23. 23

    I hope that worthless, no good piece of S*it Bloomberg reads these comments. STFU you no good, blowhard, stupid f*cking lying greedy f*ck! It is YOUR Hollywood buddes (wink-wink) that are perpetuating violence in media… how about stopping that as*hole!!!!

    VOTE OBAMA OUT!! Get rid of him. He probably planned this to get gun control in. He is afterall part of the UN cabal of one world government. FACTS…NOT paranoia. He is slowly dis-arming the USA. Think I'm wrong? Check out how he wants the U.S. to ONLY have 100 nucelar weapons and they will NOT be ICBM's. Meanwhile, Russia just tested a new powerful ICBM. OBAMA is NOT good for America.

    Look at Drones… they are all over the USA now watching us…thank Obama.

    Um guys, gun control DOES work! In Australia we so rarely have these shootings and it IS because it's hard to get guns so people with a mental illness are less likely to go nuts. It's simple and i don't understand the interest in needing such wide and easy access to guns.
    please look at our crime figures and then yours…gun control is the only way ahead



  26. 26

    What's so scarey is how angry posters get at the thought of gun control. It's not like it's been said gun control is happening. No, it isn't guns who kill people it's people who kill people,we get it, but what about the stories of how so many little kids are shot by accident by people who legally own guns and didn't bother to keep the weapon out of childrens reach and another innocent dies. It's happening too often now. No one is trying to take away any constitutional rights. It's just very confusing as to why you need so many guns to protect each other from people with guns. It seems like even if you have a gun to protect yourself from a shooter if they are crazy enough they will knock the gun from you or be a quicker shooter. No win. Kind of sad, very sad. JMO

    Re: Chris_Mc – Chris, You were actually making sense for a minute there and then you must have adjusted your tinfoil hat because your third post went over the edge of right wing paranoid thinking. The UN can't even stop a small crowd from looting in a third world shit hole, what makes you think they can pull off some worldwide plan to disarm our country? What laws has President Obama passed to take away your guns - none is the correct number. Yes, drones are starting to be used - its just more Homeland Security that President Bush started and law enforcement keeps creeping in under the guise of "protecting" us. Don't worry - put another layer of foil on your hat - they won't be able to see you…

    You want an example of gun control gone wrong? Look at Chicago. Only the criminals have guns and the murder rate is through the roof. More Americans have been murdered in Chicago than both of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

    Quite frankly I find all this tension in the world is the responsibility of our corrupted government and the elite class that purchases them and moves between business and government rigging the house. They created this mess. Allowing bankers to rob us all so that hatred, fueled by poverty, despair and frustration fills the air. How many of these shootings have we had since 2008?

    Hollywood and the video game industry also has huge a responsibility. At Columbine the two young men that killed twelve were outcasts. They were bullied and shunned by their classmates. We have already found out that this kid is a loaner. So what do video games and violent movies, like the one where this incident occurred and with the young man dressed like a part in the movie, have to do with this? They teach our children that when they feel powerless all they need to do is pick up a gun and they can feel powerful. It is not guns. It is the insanity of our society that causes this. From Wall Street, to Washington, to the Media to the motion picture industry.

    Don't blame guns. Blame the irresponsible acts of dark minds that created the dark mind that did this. Blame the politicians for enabling them to create a dark theme like this and sell it as PG-13. Blame the laws that allow six year olds and babies to be present at midnight showings of movies.

    Re: ScalesOfJusticeFallen

    For fuck's sake. Again with the "video games are the root of all evil." The MPAA rating system is adhered to voluntarily by studios and movie theaters. It's not statutory, fucknut. Leave these decisions in the hands of parents and keep the government the hell out. While you're at it, read some more Tipper Gore. She'll help you continue to demonize the media, including heavy metal and D&D.

    Way to take advantage of this tragedy Bloomberg, by trying to usurp more power by making the people more defenseless. Go back to your mansion protected by guards with guns and stfu. Shooting innocent people is illegal. Taking guns into a gun free zone is also illegal. But guess what? Criminals do illegal things, by definition, and law abiding people don't. So what situation does that leave us in? Criminals with guns, shooting unarmed law abiding people. If only those unarmed people had a fighting chance. Imagine if all of them had been granted a permit to carry a concealed weapon for defense? They would have put James Holmes down!

    James would have gotten the guns either way, either from the black market, or would have made them at home. Guns are after all just metal pipes with triggers.

    The political elite love unarmed peasants and care nothing for our rights or safety. This event happening, just goes to show that the police, and current bureaucratic safeguards were inefficient; and in their time of need, these people were alone and defenseless to be slaughtered like fish in a bucket. This is an indefensible disgrace by the prohibitionists and their drones.

    People that do illegal things with guns don't get their guns legally, all you will be doing is leaving responsible people without a way to protect themselves against those who ILLEGALLY use them. Plus with our country out of money their will be less police as well. celebrities are idiots we can't afford bodyguard and security like they can.



  35. 35

    Gun control? I am going out tommorrow and buy me a gun, get my concealed weapon permit. More people should do this as well. If someone in that theater had a gun (and license to carry it) the lunatic wouldn't have killed so many people, and he would be dead right now.



  36. 36

    gun control: let's make EVERYONE defenseless so that when a criminal who doesn't adhere to laws comes around he can do what every he wants to lots of people.
    and as far as the whole kids and guns thing goes parents need to be responsible and also gun education for everyone is a good thing.



  37. 37

    Better gun control laws does not mean that we have to take away people's rights to bear arms. I fully support people having the right to defend themselves. But nobody should be able to walk into a Bass Pro Shop and buy the kinds of guns this guy bought. It is ridiculous. I am so sick of people saying "Guns don't kill people…people kill people." That may be true, but guns sure as hell make it a lot EASIER to kill people. Somebody brought up the guy who killed the kindergartners with the knife. Well, those were 5 year olds. Its not going to be too easy to kill and injure 70 adults with a stash of knives.
    It is true that if somebody wants to do some horrible damage, he probably will keep trying until he finds away. But that is a HORRIBLE argument for being against gun control. That doesn't mean that we shouldn't be trying to do whatever we can to keep these types of guns away from the average American citizen who has no professional reason to own one, if such a professional reason even exists.



  38. 38

    No amount of bloodshed or massacres will ever change the love Americans have for their guns. It's a country founded on revolution. But it's ok. It's every Americans right to kill a child in a shooting rampage. Responsible gun owners never become nut jobs, everyone knows that.

You want to know why you all feel the need to carry a gun? Because the dickhead next door has a gun too. When are you idiots going to realise that "once or twice a year" is way too fucking often. I am Australian, we had the Port Arthur Massacre here in 1996 which killed 35 people and wounded 23 others, it's up there with the most fatalities by a lone crazed shooter in history, and guess what.

    Re: Rae1chick – Please get your facts straight, Canada recently overturned the long gun policy because many hunters felt it was targeting them and it didn't work the way it was supposed to. Gun control in Canada still exists, you still can't walk into a Walmart here and buy a gun.



  44. 44

    Americans confuse and scare me, they really do.

    I'm not sure how "People will still get guns illegally" becomes defense for the pro-gun crowd. Yeah, they will. No matter how many regulations people put in place about anything, people that will do bad will find a way around the laws. But…why in the world is that defense for making it easy? Why make it so someone who wants to kill people can just waltz into a store a buy a 100 round clip? How does that make any sense? This guy managed to buy 4 guns, including an assault rifle, in 2 months. If there was better gun control in the States, maybe this would have been caught on to. Because I'm sorry, someone buying that many guns and amo in that short of time, out of the blue, should raise a few red flags. Why would it be so bad to have something in place that would take note of that? Gun control works. Look at gun deaths in countries like Australia, England and Canada compared to the States and there's proof enough.



  45. 45

    I'm also not sure how "gun control" equals taking away all the guns. I mean, that's not what anyone is talking about. Gun control just means harder to obtain guns. People in Canada own guns. My next door neighbour growing up had a few hunting rifles. I have a friend who actually collects guns…he lives in the Toronto area. However, in Canada to get a gun, you need to go through a gun safety course. And then have three separate people write letters testifying that you are sane and safe to own a gun. And if you are married, your spouse has to sign off that they feel safe with you having a gun. Finally you get a license and have to go to a hunting/gun store to buy a gun…at which point there's regulations about how you store it. No one in Canada who wants a gun to protect themselves or to go hunting finds that too hard to follow. I'm not quite sure why Americans think that would be the end of the world…

    Condolences to all effected by this tragedy!

    If we want less people to die from gunshot wounds thru murder and suicide, we need tighter gun control, more enforcement of existing laws and a will of the people and our elected officials to make it so. If there's a will, there's a way. We're a great nation and we're capable of doing great things. It's also a tragedy that the USA is the first world country with the highest rate of people being killed by guns…

    where the USA has 10.27 people killed per 100,000 people, the UK has .46. I think we have a problem Houston (and NY and Chicago, etc).



  51. 51

    To the folks who think an armed movie theater was the solution…it was filled with smoke. How do you aim? People are also killed and injured by stray bullets and ones that ricochet. Also, what if you get the wrong person. Remember this story?

    The ATF officer stopping the robber had no gun and would have been fine had the off duty police officer not shot him dead by mistake.



  52. 52

    Short of the military and the police, nobody "needs" guns.

    It's one thing if you're a hunter and you're doing it to feed yourself and family, or shooting for the sport of it. It's another if you're buying automatic weapons that are made for totally obliterating human flesh.

    Seriously, when is the last time that you, as a gun owner, has had to shoot someone to defend your home, family or self, and truly had no other option available? The first lesson in any defense class is to learn how to avoid putting yourself in harmful situations. If you want to, you can learn to kill with your hands and with many household and common objects (I may be organic…but don't mess with me…I can rip your balls off and poke a pencil in your eye so it can write on the back of your skull :) ). And y'all know that if two people are armed, a good guy and a bad guy, there's no guarantee that the good guy will be the one alive in the end. The odds are 50/50 whether someone is armed or not.



  53. 53

    So people…who are you so defenseless against, that you're afraid of and you need a personal arsenal? It sounds paranoid and like you're fearmongering. Most people who say this aren't talking about the local robber (who'd much rather you not be home) but are imagining some government insurrection or military junta. We live in America and can vote (are you registered?), and non-violent civil disobedience has created great change in recent years. The Civil and Revolutionary Wars, and the Hatfields and the McCoys, were a long time ago and a lot of things have changed for the better. Apparently though, some people don't think so and feel the need to have the option of defending kin and country by shooting people. They have a better chance of commiting suicide or having their kids shoot themselves or someone else.

    I have a gun because I WANT a gun. I have the RIGHT to a gun. I NEED a gun because some cracked out asshole may rob me in the middle of the night. I have a carry permit, I need it for my job. Here's a news flash, drugs like coke, X, and heroin are ILLEGAL, but somehow a magical drug unicorn shows up and people like Lindsay Lohan and the crackhead down the street STILL get it! HOW? Because there will ALWAYS be loopholes. Shut the fuck up and get educated. Gun Education? YES! Gun control. Fuck no.



  57. 57

    The US seems to be the only country with the belief that the more guns you have, the safer you are. But then again, this is a country where groups like The Westboro Baptist Church flourish. And it's their constitutional right to carry firearms to a soldier's funeral when they picket, right? I mean, they must protect themselves from people who want them dead. It's only fair.

    Bloomberg displays one of the strongest leadership nation wide. By integrating his understanding in (the use of) technology as well as (the dynamics of) human nature (finance/politic), I am sure his suggestion encompass the need to integrate the soft with the hardware is the key to continuous management of technology (which can be used for good or bad). Regulation at various levels will need to be integrated: consciousness (soft) + gun (technology) usage + social design

    As a Canadian I don't understand why it is so important to some Americans to have the right to have a gun. Maybe it would slow down shootings like this if it they couldn't go to a store to buy a gun.

    Re: windbourne – Thats not a guns fault. You have idiotic parents that shouldn't have kids, buy a gun, keep IT LOADED with just the safety on and something bad happens. Then morons like you complain about it. Again, you're blaming the wrong thing. It isn't hard to keep the bullets separate from the gun and a trigger lock on the weapon. When it comes to accidental deaths from firearms, it's everyones fault EXCEPT the guns.

    Re: MelbourneMum – Please stop commenting on American laws you know nothing about. We have a much higher population than you. It's also cultural. It could be americans are just dumber and more aggressive. You still have crime, you still have murder.

    Re: Lilygirl27 – First off, you can't just "walk into a bass pro shop and buy a gun" whenever I hear morons say shit like that it makes me wonder..You have to go through a background check, every state has tons of limitations on weapons now.

    Re: organicgal – "Short of the military and the police, nobody "needs" guns." LMFAO ROFL..COPS AND OUR GOVERNMENT IS OUT OF CONTROL. Both violate our rights every day. How do we protect ourselves from them?



  62. 62

    I really wish people that knows nothing about gun laws, crime rates, gun statistics, and gun laws THAT APPLIES TRIPLE TO FOREIGNERS (STFU YOU DON'T LIVE HERE) would shut up. Most people spewing their anti-gun nonsense knows little or nothing about guns. They have no experience with them, NOTHING.

    People complain everyday about the war on drugs and it being a waste of money and an epic fail. MOST people would agree. Now, how exactly do you think the 'war on guns' would turn out you bunch of effing idiots? Do you realize how much money it would cost to enforce gun law bans,etc quadruple the amount of what it costs the war on drugs. Gun control is simply illogical. Not in a country thats had them since it was founded. You can't ban something that has 150 million of in the states.

    Criminals have guns, obviously they won't turn in their illegally obtained firearm because they are criminals. Gun laws won't matter. *beep* you can ask any hard core gangbanger thats locked up. "Me owning an AK is illegal but ill buy one anyways" how do women, or old people or psychically inferior people defend themselves against criminals that have guns already?

    It would simply create a massive black market making criminals even stronger and richer. There's no argument. It's irrefutable. Can you idiots not get that through your heads?



  63. 63

    You just never know when someone is going to flip their shit. Take away guns, if someone wants to kill a large group of people HE WILL MAKE A BOMB. That would be more devastating than a gun. What about a large SUV..a guy decides to speed and go 110mph and run into a large group of people? I bet you no one would say "zomg we must reduce the maximum speed cars can go"

    Everyone in my family owns a gun. I own guns. We're all competent, smarter and make more money than most of you idiots spewing your idiocy. We have never went on shooting sprees, we shoot for sport. WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO SUFFER because one single idiot went on a shooting spree. Give me a fucking break you mindless sheep. Every single fucking time this happens, people turn it into an anti-gun political agenda. If you're against law abiding citizens owning guns, well hopefully you or your wife GETS RAPED in front of you while you're held at gunpoint by a single guy. Maybe if you had a gun, you would of been able to prevent it :)

    I'm Canadian, and though we do have gun control, there have been stories of gun violence in some of our biggest cities in the news recently. However, I think a lot of it is due to how easy it is to get guns from the US to Canada. If the US tightens it's laws and works with Canada to reduce the amount of guns crossing the border by the organized crime rings, then we'll all be safer in our cities. The less people that are walking around armed, the better.

    Re: NookiesWA – You make some good arguments there - but then you stray a little. Yes it is our right to own - I actually own every one of the weapons this shooter used. I use them for sport and home defense, I am not qualified or trained to conceal carry and fight crime - that is the job of the police. Sure we have a f'd up government, but what are you going to do - challenge it with your weapon - that's not realistic. Americans solve their problem at the ballot box - peacefully. We live in a free society and the price we pay is sometimes bad things happen to good people. You can't protect from determined evil. Thank you for your opinion.

    Oh and to all you posters from Australia, England and Canada - Its easy to sit in the cheap seats and make stupid comments about the United States. Your laws might work with the tiny populations you have, but we have 300 million of the most diverse populations in the world. We try to have the freest society in the world with the most protected personal freedoms and rights possible. We aren't perfect by any means, but for better or worse, with all our problems, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. So until YOU become a citizen of the USA, mind your own business.

    Check out the article by Mike Adams. See the eyewitness accounts of someone getting phone call in front and gettin' up and opening door. Eyewitnesses report more than one shooter. Broke college student had on $20K of equipment/guns-how? He worked at CIA lab. Was neurobehabioral science student in past. People who knew him say this is not something he would have done. Had on mask; no-one saw his face. False flag right before illegal United Nations supported gun control treaty vote in Senate next week. How convenient. This is reeking of a false flag.

    Re: vbitch – Dear V-Bitch, you are a poor student of history…research the genocide that has occurred by gov'ts after they disarmed their people..oh, people like Hitler, Stalin, Pol-Pot, Mao, Mussolini, etc. See the article in Natural News by Mike Adams. I hate to cause you cognitive dissonance, but this was a set-up. -See previous posts. P.S.-an armed society is a safe society. Are you even aware of Operation Fast and Furious? It's been in the news lately. Do you even get the profundity of the fact that OUR OWN justice department under Eric Holder and Obama was just BUSTED giving Mexican drug gangs thousands and thousands of guns and heavy arms in order to (admittedly) blame it on our 2nd amendment so they can take out guns away? That's right. Our government just got busted arming Mexican drug gangs. have you read about the Mexican drug violence? As a friend of Dorothy, I find it disconcerting at the level of stupidity in this community.

    I literally can not believe all you idiot americans! How can u think having guna is a good idea! That thick sh*t talking about being raped at gun point.."and if only i had a gun also i could shoot him!!!" how stupid can u be?!? It may take years and it may be very expensive to decrease the amount of guns and who owns them and enforce a tighter gun controls but dont you think its worth it? You live in such a fucked
    Up society you think its perfectly normal to carry a gun around "to protect yourself" on the off chance you get attacked or theres a mass shoot out. Did u ever think that, in time with tighter guns laws u wouldnt need to "bare arms" because there wouldnt be so many guns around and it wouldnt be so go damn easy to get them.
    No where else in the western world has a problem like this BECAUSE THEY HAVE GUN CONTROL. I have lived in 5 countrys and there is truely no where quite like craaaazy american and all the craaaazy americans! I dont no how much simpler i can explain it. But i can gurantee the majority of you pro gun IDIOTS havent even left the US or even have a passport! That is why the rest pf the world mocks you and wants nothing to do with you because your basing the right to hold massacres on a 200 year old bill! GET WITH THE TIMES AMERICA! Join the rest of normal world.

    Re: Sensibleperson – I've left the US many times to other countries, include some in Europe, and there's no place I"d rather be than the USA. The genocide committed in Europe in the last century alone by governments who DISARMED their citizenry is so quickly forgotten. We are guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms to defend ourselves against a tyrannical government. An unarmed populace is completely at the mercy of the government, which these days is showing its true fascist self. Are you even awake? Go to frontsight website of Dr. Ignatius Piazza and see many accounts of armed citizens saving lives that would have otherwise been lost. People committing crimes with guns, the vast majority of the time have not obtained the weapon legally. Also, this is an American issue. Not a European issue. America is a SOVEREIGN nation. UN can go f**ck itself.

    Re: pdrocksmysocks – i'm sorry i should have said that they don't "need" to get them legally. They can still get them illegally fairly easily. It's not that easy to get guns legally(it depends for state to state), sure they might get them legally but if you take notice criminals don't target areas where they know people have their own arms. They go after defenceless people, people without guns. Why? Because it's easy. sorry if i want to be in charge of my own safety.

    Re: Lonny Smith – exactly do people not have any knowledge of the history of the world and the events that lead up the world wars and other massive tragedies that happened through giving the government too much control over their respective population? I love how other countries try to give suggestions to each other and those suggestions in the past had lead to really bad situations.
    The whole police should only have guns argument is so flawed in many different ways. One we can't afford it, police force in my area is downsizes because no one has money … two who can wait for them to come to the rescue, it's really easy to say "oh the police will protect me" until it happens to you. Three; what makes you think the police won't abuse there power and control?

    When I was little I used to think "oh yeah just get rid of all the guns and no one will ever die". Then I grew up and sh*t got real. I learned not everyone follows rules. You CAN get rid of all the guns that HONEST people have but those who steal, murder, and torture they don't care about your silly gun control, it doesn't phase them there are so many ways to get around that. Especially a guy that calculating that meticulous that SMART, do you seriously think he wouldn't have been able to get those guns one way or another? Most people hope they'll never have to use their gun on someone but it's better to be safe than sorry. Educate yourself a little. I've been on both sides thoroughly that about it. I for one am scared of guns because I understand the absoluteness that comes with them but I also understand that it is sooo important for me to get educated on them and know how to use one.
    The right to bear arms is very important and should not be infringed upon, everyone should be free to protect themselves.

    Why do you think gun control equals no guns, if you go through the necessary education and processes, you can own as many guns as your little cowboy hearts desire… may just weed out the psychopaths though, maybe not such a bad thing? Or is that restricting your constitutional rights written for a society how many hundred years ago?? Sorry just an ignorant foreigner… pfft

    Re: Lonny Smith – That's hilarious. An American telling people from other countries to mind their own business. Priceless. And if you actually own an assault rifle just to go hunting, then you really are fucked up. As long as you keep killing your own, that's fine with me.

    Oh yeah… Great Idea.
    Make laws against firearms & hope that someone intent on committing FELONY MURDER will obey them… :/
    Honduras has very strict gun control, and they have the highest per-capita intentional homicide rate in the world.
    Russian citizens cannot own handguns, yet their per-capita intentional homicide rate is 250% higher than ours.
    You can go to jail for a decade if found with a single bullet in Mexico, yet their per-capita homicide rate is 400% higher than ours.
    Firearms assaults rose 40% after the UK outlawed handguns.
    My point? Laws are only for the law abiding.
    All you seek to do by limiting people's rights, is to make more unarmed victims, and ease the job of criminals.

    Wow very surprised by these comments and very glad I'm not the only one who doesn't care what celebrities think and is against gun control. Banning guns only means that the law abiding citizens turn their guns over not criminals. It is a known fact (from other countries statistics) that banning guns does not lower crime rate but just the opposite. If guns were illegal this lowlife still would have gotten them and committed this crime. Banning guns is not the answer.

    Let's ban the guns….because CRIMINALS follow the law. Retarded politicians and celebrities will never understand. I own a gun and would gladly shoot Holmes if I had the chance. If more sane people knew about firearms then the crazies of this world would get off fewer shots.

    To Melbourne Mum:
    Since a gun ban in Australia, violent crime has risen 42%. Similar stats in Chicago. If the guy in Co. didn't have guns he would have blown the place up instead. You can't fix crazy with a gun ban.

    We have just experienced two similar shootouts in Toronto and we have a gun ban. Only the criminals have them. Isn't that special?

    The shooters in Columbine, as well as Virgina tech both did not use the incorrect term 'assault rifle' they used pistols. The Columbine shooting claimed the lives of 13 he used -THIRTEEN- 10 round magazines. The other person used a 52 rd, 32 rd and 28 round mag shooting a total of 55 times. The Virgina tech massacre claimed 32 peoples lives. He used a 20rd extended mag and there were 31 deaths. All 3 men used a much weaker caliber then what the guy used at this shooting.

    Peoples attack on the incorrectly named "assault" rifle holds little to no merit at all. For someone with a much higher caliber with a much higher magazine capacity being IN COMPLETE CONTROL over the situation and he actually claimed less lives than those 3 who uses pistols and much smaller capacities? Right. You can't sit there and go "zomg ban 'assault' rifles because they have too many bullets oh noes" when both major shootings previously were done by pistols, less ammo and CLAIMED more lives. (So far)

    I guess people also do not understand that people with high mag capacities are more prone to 'spray and pray' than to take their time and aim, and more prone to jamming. Mind blowing people aren't even acknowledging the numbers at hand.
