While many questions remain about what motivated the killer in Friday's mass shooting in Connecticut, one thing is becoming increasingly clear -- the tragedy will re-ignite and further fuel a major debate over gun control legislation in Washington.

They all get Amnesty from Obama plus, they get weapons of their choice; M16, SAW-249 fully automatic weapons, High cap magazines, Russian made RPG's......Obama now will take away your measly semi-auto rifle and high cap magazine. Now you have no protection or defense against the drug cartels. Obama dismantled the NDIC, which was involved in getting out the drug cartel in the United States. Check out the website below. Now you have nothing, no protection.......Thanks to the Demorats and Obama, Fienstein, boxer, biden, polosi, and Billionnare soros!!!!

Now with the new wave of Violence Obama and Holder wanted an excuse to steal your weapons. So now, Holder and Obama want your semi-auto rifle, which is what they originally wanted through fast and furious.........NOW They got what they wanted, a complete American disarmament of the people of the United States of America. Now Obama will cut back our military
    again and again and again This is why Leon Panetta resigned. He announced to the United States news agencies, the United States can no longer defend itself from a Rogue attack, from Iran, Russia, or China, etc.

    Look here;
    China is now a High Military threat to our satellite Iridium Military systems;
    http://news.yahoo.com/chinas-...
    Russia will build 100 warships by 2020 at a cost of Approx 20 trillion plus U.S. dollars, compared to Obama's measly 633 billion, for the U.S. military budget. But, of course according to Obama, Obamacare is far more important than Freedom and liberty.
    http://navaltoday.com/2013/01...


    So, where is you semi-auto rifles now, when you really need them to, defend your families and properties?

    Obama is not going to protect you, guaranteed...................... Obama and Holder need to be tried in a Military court for TREASON, against the United States of America. Call your senators and congressman, Walter Jones (R) of N.C. has started impeachment proceedings, HR-107.

    Just in, now Saudis who killed us in 9/11 will be allowed to enter the United States with no restrictions.
    http://www.worldtribune.com/2...

    This is a time in our history which blantantly shows irresponsiblity by Obama and his clan.
    Now the Saudis can do their dirty work within the United States with no restrictions. In-fact, some of these people carry fully automatic ak-47 for their protection.....Where does that leave Un-armed America!!!!!! DEAD!!! like 9/11.........

    We already have gun control in America, and it obviously does not work.

    Interestingly, the BIG event in the recent debate (Connecticut) is a perfect example of how gun control would NOT have prevented that event from occurring. HE didn't buy the guns, his mother did. It was HER fault for leaving them where an obviously unstable person could get a hold of them. If anyone thinks that any additional gun restrictions could prevent this from happening then you're a fool.

    The guns have not changed, the people have. The guns are out of Pandora's box and there is no way to get them back in. A law would only take guns away from law abiding citizens. Once you break bad, you don't care what laws you break including gun laws. If this was a perfect world, I would support it, but this world has and never and will never be perfect. Grow up and don't have infantile ignorance.

    Look at the demographics. Most of the yes votes are from outside the US where they don't have to live with this danger. After doing the numbers of just the USA, it is 95% no. If other countries want gun control, it is not my place to say anything. And it is not there place to say what my country does either.

    In New York city only guns are owned by the cops, muggers, hit men and thugs.
    And there are a lot more of them than cops.

    That nut in CT could just as easily drove his car down the sidewalk when the kids were getting on or off the buses. Guns make the scene all the more violent but when they are outlawed only criminals will have guns and nuts will just find another way to kill.

    In China several times over the past few years and on the same day as CT massacre a man ran into a school and randomly started stabbing kids.

    Should we outlaw cars and knives too?

    We need to find better ways to treat mental illness. It is ironic that Connecticut has one of the strictest law to commit anybody and Adam Lanza was about to be committed by his mother before he went on a shooting spree at the elementary school.

    NO! and the Dialogue would include , Lock up your Ammo separate from your Guns! This would eliminate many senseless deaths by Mentally unbalanced .Parents, Family,communities of these individuals need to take up the slack of responsibility to keep watch ! We need more concealed carry folks that work in Schools who are trained , willing and ready prepared . During the riots in the 60s at my High School , we had an armed Policeman who kept things stable .

    The USA did get a lot of the scientist and technology from Germany's ruins.
    The rocket scientest Wernher von Braun (V2 Rockets) was captured by the Americans and immediately put in charge of furthing his rocket program but in America. Without him we would not have had a space program for many years and definately would not have had a moon landing.

    We are purposely being disarmed, That was the whole reason for Fast and Furious. I am suscpiciouse of these school shooling. They may be more of the plot to take away guns.

    One of of Hitlers biggest mistakes was kicking the jewish scientist out of Germany.

    I think these attacks are part of a government agenda to disarm its people. Just look at fast and furios.

    if a nut wants to kill kids he could just drive a truck down the sidewalk when the kids are getting off the bus.

    Mall parking lots and most intersections in America are also video taped. No video will ever see the light of day. I was also reading that the Aurora shooters father and the CT shooters father are on the supeana list for the one trillion dollar banking fraud investigation. And the two kids that were stabbed to death in the NY bathtub by their nanny, their father was an investigavie reported covering the bank fraud.

    I think its interesting how that "navy seal" wrote that book and claimed to have beat up Jesse for saying more seals should die.
    The owners of the bar said it never happened. The people at the party said it never happened. The only person to say it happened is this ex seal. The media only interviews the seal and never interviews the bar owners or other party goer's they just want to discredit jesse.

    Look at these links about the treaty that the UN has been in the process of making with America for years.

    You take away the morality in a country and you can expect more violence. Saying its ok to kill unborn babies and death row says yes it is acceptable. Good people will have to protect themselves from unrulely kids because the govenment won't allow strict dicipline.Let get back to what made this country Great.

    What part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" are the idiotic leftist just too stupid to understand?

    We don't need more gun laws, we need to repeal all the ones that we have now!

    Repeal NFA34!

    Repeal GCA68!

    More gun laws will just take guns out of the hands of honest citizens and subject them to more violent crimes by crooks (who by definition don't care what the laws are anyway).

    Besides, "gun control" should just be "hitting what you are aiming at" anyway...

    Point, most people do not realize that so called Assault weapons are just a cosmetic look, and that many semi-autos can look military or standard issue . Auto Guns,and all weapons, need to be stored properly so no one that is not authorized or capable of stable mental balance not have access to the ammo or the Guns-These Parents of these Murderers are just as Guilty and should be held accountable !

    Stricter gun-control would not have prevented the massacre at Sandy Hook. The guns that were used, were purchased legally - and by one of the victims, the mother of Adam Lanza.
    We should address this matter by improving our mental healthcare system, not by preventing people from owning guns. Additional restrictions on gun ownership will only benefit the criminal element in society and the government. It is the quintessential red-herring.

    Absolutely! No military-style weapons should be legal to own, manufacture, import, or sell. Add to that extended ammunition clips. Who needs a clip with more than 10 bullets? Nobody unless they are out to do evil.

    Just listened to the NRA press conference. Chicken littles only talked - no questions - and their solution? Arm the teachers and put armed guards in all schools. WOW! Let's see - let's get Congress to pass legislation that requires and funds armed guards at all schools. (Oh yeah - I mention that the NRA has an excellent progam to train guards and teachers, etc. - MORE money for the NRA and gun production). Let's not forget that the Republicans are hell-bent on "cutting spending" to states, doing away with the Dept. of Education, etc. etc. Soooooooooooo - the NRA's response is to place armed guards at schools at tax-payers expense while gun manufacturers continue to make $billions from the production and sale of assault/military style weapons.

    The so-called NRA press conference was nothing more than an advertisement drumming up more business for the NRA! What a disgrace.

    I don't disagree that in this day and age we do need armed guards at schools - a sad state of affairs for the supposedly "greatest" nation on earth. I think the gun manufacturers should have a tax levied on them that would pay for an armed guard at every school. THAT would be good legislation!

    You imply that military-style weapons are the only ones capable of killing people. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    I have not viewed the NRA Press Conference - and don't plan to - because I already suspected they would not demand gun-ownership restrictions. That would be like the auto industry insisting that the government impose greater fuel-efficiency standards for the guzzlers they like to produce. It "ain't" gonna happen.

    Our nation is sick... and we can trace this sickness back to Reagan's decision to (gut) our mental healthcare system.

So now if a gang took Base Ball Bats to some Politician they would want us to License Bats as well ? Yes this is as ludicrous as Banning Guns , a Tool is a Tool, it depends on the operator errors or sensible use .

    The second ammendment was passed to protect us from our own government...when government takes away our rights to own the type of guns that they supply to our own military what comes next? We can not trust those on the left to look out for our best interests. If they had their way, none of us would own guns...just the government and police...the left is not to be trusted will controlling guns. I picked up my own AR15 yesterday along with 3 thirty round clips and 500 rounds ammunition...added to my shotgun and two 40mm hand guns I will protect myself and my family...I don't need government to do that for me. When I hear someone breaking into my house I will call 911 after the problem has been stopped...not before and hoping they can get there in time to save my family...
