    Should We Reconsider Our Gun Policy?

    Yes, this belong in politics. No, I'm not putting it there in light of what happened today. This is a discussion that doesn't need to be buried. Move it when it dies down if you want, but for the sake of the Conn. shooting thread, moving that discussion here is probably wise.

    Anyway, discuss.

    Yes, something has to be done to at least TRY and reduce the amount of guns that land in these psychotic people's hands.

    No because Americans believe its there right to have the ability to kill a fellow human being.

    I agree. Not saying we need a ban, but any reduction in the amount of crazies having guns helps.

    The opposite solution of arming everyone would just ensure that everyone who should not be given the responsibility of a gun would have one. The idea that they'd think rationally about deciding to kill or not kill others based on others having guns is ridiculous considering how often they kill themselves after killing others to begin with.

    I voted for abiding by the Constitution more and for heavier screening. Everybody deserves the right to own a gun as long as they're not criminally insane or otherwise incapable of responsibly owning a gun.

    I think we need more stringent screening, stricter laws with regards to what types of guns can be purchased as well as a crackdown on illegal firearms.

    I don't think we need to ban weapons, but we do need to do something.

    That's not the question, and that's a question that leads to several valid answers.

    Ok then my answer is still no. I have 2 kids at home that I need to protect. Whether it's from a home invasion, or something else.

    After a tragedy there is always an argument about our 2nd amendment rights and firearms.

    Our forefathers were so compassionate about this right they put it right behind "freedom of speech, religion, etc. which is the main reason they left other countries. It is also in front of several other extremely important issues (protection from unreasonable search and seizure, due process, double jeopardy, self incrimination, trial by jury, speedy trial, right to counsel, assisted rights, protection from cruel and unusual punishment, excessive bail and many more...again, all came after - not to say they are less important but it highlights the importance of the issue.

    Removing/restricting the rights of law abiding citizens is not the answer.
    If that were the case every time a drunk driver killed a person (which happens far more often than guns) we should claim it's the cars fault...not the drunk.

    What we need to do is make punishments on criminals firmer and make prison less desirable (accommodating).



    More importantly, the recent tragedy is a horrible situation and my prayers are with those affected.


    A Real American HERO !!!

    so its okay to you that any psychopathic american can get a gun as easy as they can now?... wouldnt you rather have a psych eval and more screening done? especially if you have 2 kids, a friggin elementary school was just shot up. it wont stop you from owning your gun at all, and keep them out of the hands of ppl who INTEND to do harm with them.

    No, crazy people that plan to do things like this aren't going to be deterred by a strict gun law policy, they will find a way to obtain a gun. Strict gun law policy only hampers law abiding citizens that would attempt to stop an event like this from happening from obtaining guns. That is my opinion on the matter.
