  • Young kids are able to access guns.

    Nobody knows what the second amendment really means for us to just say we have a right. A lot of people are dying and kids don't feel safe in their educational environment. We need to be more thoughtful on things that are happening around the world. Our politics care more about their money then our safety.

  • Do you want more innocent people to die?

    People are dying and those of you supporting the other argument are supporting death of nice innocent people, even young children. We have been trying your way of having not very much gun control for some time now, and look where thats got us....
    So you should really think about what could happen if you gave gun control a chance. We have already tried your way and it's absolutely failing. It disgusts me that you people won't even try to think about what it would be like to try having stronger gun control if you've never tried it.
    So I hope after reading this, that you thought about all the people who have died because of guns.... And realized that you're supporting death.

  • More people dident did

    Children get weapons to easy, they kill each other. If guns will be hard to get more people to survive in the USA. You dont know if the guy with the guns is sane or not. The police should be the only ones who can carry guns in public places, I think

  • It's harder to get a marriage license than to get a gun in some areas.

    Guns are weapons for killing things. It's pretty goddamn obvious that gun violence is one of the most prominent issues in the United States. It's also pretty goddamn obvious that many people, especially the government and other officials who can actually do something about it, are SILENT. This is a problem that needs a solution. The solution is - make it harder to get a gun. Or better yet, confiscate all guns just like Australia did in 1996, decreasing the crime rate involving guns SIGNIFICANTLY. :)

  • Stop Illegal Selling of Guns

    Reading all of these comments, and its all about people who hunt, or people who have guns for self defense..... This debate isnt saying that the united states should stop selling guns.. This debate is making it harder to obtain a gun... By means of mentally ill people being able to obtain guns, minors obtaining guns or terrorists obtaining guns... Chances of these people obtaining their guns at the local gun store, or anywhere that sells guns is highly unlikely being as there are soo many steps you have to follow... They are getting them through people who buy guns, only to turn around and sell them to someone else... Buying them online, ect.. That needs to stop.. Stop the school shootings, terrorist attacks or that person who is just down right depressed or angry that thinks everyone deserves to die right before they kill themselves.....

    I am your dad so you need to agree on every thing i say or else you are going to be grounded and i will tell your mom to spank you with a belt and you will be sent to your room little boy or girl #DADSRAWSOME eat 420 blazin

  • Yes, guns should be harder to come by.

    Yes, guns should be harder to come by. Currently it is still very easy to buy a rifle from a sporting goods store, you only need an ID, no background checks are done. With handguns it's a little harder but the restrictions can still be gotten around by buying from gun shows and private sellers.

  • Yes,guns should be harder to come by.

    Yes,guns should be harder to come by.Guns can ultimately kill people and this type of grave responsibility should not just be put in the hands of anybody.The best way to control guns would be to only allow in the hands of law enforcement agents and others that need them for law enforcement purposes.

  • Yes they should.

    Guns should be harder to come by at least by making a more accurate screening test that keeps people who may be mentally ill or a little unstable from getting a gun. Also give a higher age to those who can purchase and run a very thorough background check on the person.

  • Second Amendment rights

    So many people who are against gun control completely misconstrue the original meaning of the second amendment. The Second Amendment was put in place so that Americans could have firearms to protect themselves from foreign invaders and to set up militias. Now that the United States has a strong centralized military, neither publicly available firearms nor civilian militias are necessary.

  • Of course not! It's our right!

    It is our Second Amendment right to bear arms, and it has been that way since about 1789 when the Bill of Rights took effect. Making guns harder to come by would be incredibly unconstitutional by that virtue. Pistols should be easy to come by, as they're an easier means of self-defense that could easily take out a raving lunatic psycho murderer-zombie that decides to shoot some place up. Assault rifles should be harder to come by, yes, since those are meant for military use. The right to bear arms put no restriction on any types of guns since, back then, they were muskets that took twenty seconds to load. Now, weapons are easier to fire. Keep pistols accessible as the new standard, but make military-grade weapons out of reach. Hunting weapons need to exist, too. That was the intent of the Founding Fathers - weapons for hunting and self-defense. We shouldn't let them down because of some psychos who used weapons that others shouldn't have. It's a damn shame that ALL guns are being grouped into that category, because there's no reason to do that.

    Gun control doesn't help anything When Washington DC banned handguns in 1976, homicides with guns shot through the roof. You see, criminals are called criminals for a reason. They intentionally break the law. Just because you make guns harder to get doesn't mean that there will be less guns on the street. You know that meth and cocaine are illegal. Then why do we hear about people overdosing on meth and cocaine? Taking guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens will only hurt them. It is unethical to let people with a disadvantage in a fight fend for themselves. Guns will always be out there. Let the law abiding citizens have a fair chance at defending themselves.

  • Wtf no I'm keeping my weapons

    We have the right to bear arms and you aren't taking mine you can kiss my ass. This is America so fuck foriegners and let me keep my weapons crime can sob sob sob sob sob sob lol lol lol ol oloolo lo l ol ol ol lo l o

  • I think not.

    Guns are supposed to be used for defense, but since people these days are using them for offense against others, they are being banned. Ban idiots, not guns! People who are mentally ill and go off murdering people should be contained so they can't cause any problems in the first place.

  • There are already too many in private hands

    I don't think it really matter how many more guns go into private hands. It's good that we screen for people that definitely shouldn't have them, but there are so many in the world already it really doesn't matter how many new weapons make their way into private individuals hands.

  • Supply Should Meet Demand

    I do not believe guns should be harder to come by. Guns are legal to purchase and own, therefore I feel it is best for supply to meet demand. If supply shrinks I believe it will be seen as an attempt to keep firearms away from the people who want them and it is not fair to restrict access, by restricting supply.

  • No

    Guns are already the most regulated item on the market. Name one other item you need to get permission from the government to buy? The right to own guns is spelled out in the constitution. They should be easier to come by. But what is more important is that they should be easier to carry. Owning a gun for protection does no good when the government says you can't have it with you.

  • It's already hard enough.

    There is already a national requirement to pass a background check in order to purchase a firearm. Most states also require a license to carry in some form or another. The shooter in Connecticut didn't comply with either requirement. Yet he still managed to gain possession of the firearms used. What else is there to do while still respecting the 2nd amendment?

    The fact of the matter is that it is already too hard to legally carry a firearm on a school campus. That's what prompted this debate. The good guys were disarmed while the crazy man was armed to the teeth. He didn't shoot up a police station. He shot up a school where he knew NO ONE but him would be armed. Why was there no one armed to oppose him? Was it because teachers and administrators chose to be disarmed or was it because it was too hard/impossible for them to be armed at the school legally?

    He could have been armed with a pump-action shotgun and he'd still have killed seven kids without reloading. He could have used a bomb and killed 38 (like what happened in Bath, Michigan in 1927). Banning or restricting weapons will not solve the problem.

    The problem isn't that guns are too easy to gain access too. The problem is the disparity of force created (1 bad guy with a weapon, no one to challenge him) and the lack of mental health services.
