Someone tries to hide a bomb in his shoe and now we all have to take off our shoes at the airport - someone shoots 20 little kids and the NRA blames it on anything but gun violence.... enough already

When everyone is allowed a gun - like Switzerland - there is almost no gun violence - the thugs and the CIA mind-controlled people will always have them - so why not everyone! If the guys with guns know we can shoot back - they will think twice -

You prevent it by not allowing the public access to guns. "We have a right to protect ourselves"....when have you ever needed to use an assault rifle in your own neighbourhood? "We will kill you if you take our guns"...really you damn hillbilly? So government takes them away to keep innocent people safe and you will kill....clearly you are the smart ones. No one is coming to get you, you damn inbred morons and the whole world is disgusted by your constant school shootings that could be prevented. America has become the biggest joke. No one wants the American dream/. Not when it means your little children will be killed off by your 2nd amendment.

Noted, tweeted, read, tweeted, shared. We have to realize life is more important than allowing some nutcase the right to own an assault gun or a magazine that contains 30 or more shots. This crap about people kill, gun don't is just crap. When people have guns especially assault weapons and magazines containing over thirty rounds, no one should be surprised if one person can kill 26 people in less than fifteen minutes.Our country has gone around the bend for gun rights; just like they have to protect the rights of defendants. If someone has raped five women and is caught and sent to jail, and he gets out and rapes another woman in the same MO that he did with the first five; the jury should know these facts. It's crap about the jury prejudging; why shouldn't they know the entire truth, the good, the bad, and the ugly about the defendant. The same is true about guns; people don't need assault guns; they are for soldiers and lawmen not hunters or the average citizen.

The NRA has gone "all in" by wanting everyone to own many guns, as well as arming teachers. Horrifying! Guess I'm going to have to figure out how to pry those guns out of their cold, dead fingers! DemandAPlan.org.
