The percentage of legal, registered gun owners that commit crimes with guns is very low. It's the criminal with the illegal gun that everyone has to worry about!

lone, this problem is not liberal and its not conservative. we have a national problem where thousands of americans die every year from guns. Is the answer 'take away all the guns?" of course not. Why does the right always start that conspiracy theory? Because its a hot button for all the so called Patriots, to get them riled up. No one is coming for your guns, some serious restrictions on assault weapons is a common sense direction, mental health funding is also a common sense direction. If we follow the second amendment why not just let everyone own muskets eh? Weapons have evolved and some restrictions must evolve with them. That idiot lapierre and his only answer being "more guns" is just crazy. this is the same guy that called ATF agents "jack booted thugs" and caused GHWB to renounce his membership to the NRA. All you so called patriots that are against special interests in washington should take a long hard look at what the NRA actually stands for. it

inspires and welcomes the "rise up against the government" which back in the day could have been called treason. The entire crazy right wing "us against them" mentality has got to stop. we have a duly elected governmnet, elected by the people. I see one side trying to protect its citzens and one side trying to protect gun manufacturers and people that would like to overthrow the government because they don't like who was elected. by the way, I didn't vote for GWB but in never even entered my mind that I should start a revolution because he was elected and all the Liberal Media thay you guys go on about didn't suggest or promote such nonsense either. Why does corporate media keep starting these conspiraciess??

lone, yes full auto is banned but again there is no need for the weapons of which we speak except for the killing of human beings. The NRA has become as powerful as the oil industry, if a majority of the population is for some kind of regulation then they should work with the people instead of agains them. I own a handgun and I believe I handle it responsibly, i go to the gun range and I see and interact with the SC racists that own ARs and large calibre high capacity weapons and believe me there is a difference.

these are the same guys that have been led to believe that our president is a muslim whos only purpose is to bring down the US. Seriously? He isn't a citizen, he is a plant by terrorists groups, the affordable health care act will ruin the health care system, he will take our guns, he is a socialist, take back our country....the corporate and right wing media play up that crap all the time..and these knuckleheads go out and buy more guns "just in case"

Does it occur to anyone that murders by these rifles only account for less than half of 1% of all gun related deaths? OR that over 90 % of all the shootings are gang and/or drug related? OR that most of all these murders occur in gun cities where guns are outlawed? LA Chicago NYC ... Is there a pattern here? Use your brains people. Think for God sakes. check the numbers for yourself. They are goverment numbers. More people are killed with hammers than AR s.
