If somebody drives thru a school yard and injures a lot of children, should we lobby for car control? Or better mental health?

gun laws and control of sales will not stop somebody who is mentally ill from hurting people if they want to.

His point is, guns don't kill people. People kill people. You're too young to remember these things...but research them..Timothy McVeigh used fertilizer. 9-11 terrorists used box cutters and airplanes. Hitler used cyanide gas.

Compare it to guns. Is it the cars fault or the drivers fault. Is it the guns fault or is it the shooters fault.

then we can possibly do better backround checks?
in these like 2 weeks pretty much, 3 shootings, i think we need to address the problem, just my thought.

I don't know what the solution is. I don't have any answers. All I know is that if someone wants to kill a bunch of people...they will find a way. With or without guns.

mall and church, it was like 2 days ago, in PA.
and its true, if someone wants to do it, they will do it, dont matter the law.
but im also looking at other countries, their laws and how offten this happens. there are other countries that are not having this problem to our extent, maybe we should look into how those countries do it, and maybe try and somewhat follow those

Yes, so we should stop trying to be all anti gun and actually help the people. If they want to kill people they will stab make a bomb or something. Gun bans won't help anything. It will take them away from the law abiding citizens, and the illegal guns are the going to be the only guns out there. So people won't be able yo defend themselves.

Of course not. The anti gun activists are having a field day with this.

The truth is that Adam Lanza's mother knew he had mental problems, but failed to do anything about it. She also did not secure her guns properly in her house. I'm not saying that the shooting is her fault, but there are other things to blame, rather than guns and prayer in schools.

Mental help. People think its the guns fault for example, and the person isent responsible.

Agreed....that guy needed help and if this country was more concerned with its people's state of mind instead of trying to be control freaks, this might of been prevented?
Report as
I agree completely.

As humans we want to blame evil on things rather than other humans. Maybe we should lobby for grocery control laws too so Americans won't be obese. Or perhaps not sell glasses so people won't drink alcohol. Mental illness, like evil, exists in us all. Some of us have a better grip on impulse and self control, reality, responsibility or consequenses and don't act on evil thoughts. Someone in the family circle should've recognized and acted on the way he was behaving. I'm sure he didn't just wake up that morning and decide to kill. I hate to be cliche' but guns don't kill (innocents), crazy people do. More laws aren't the answer. Awareness and treatment may help.
