    • Any gun control law they try to pass is unconstitutional.  The constitution gives me the right as an American citizen to keep and bear arms.  Not just a few select arms, but whatever arms I want.

      If people choose not to own a gun, that is their choice, but it should never be imposed on others.

      Yes, a very touchy subject.

      Gun control with do nothing at all to eliminate the guns that criminals have.

    • I’m not all up on what is trying to be passed. My hubz has guns but I have no interest in having one. I only wish that a test had to be taken before you could get a gun. And then continuing education periodically or retesting. I do think people will get a gun no matter what the laws are but if people were better trained there might be less “accidents“.

    • I agree with Tulip as well. It’s in the constitution that it’s our right to own a firearm. I do, however, believe that the HIPAA laws should be re-visited and a national database established to prevent those diagnosed with mental illness from buying a legal gun. Not that it would stop anyone from acquiring an illegal gun, but it might be a deterrant for some.

    • I have some real strong and upsetting feelings about what is going on in the world today, it depresses and shocks me to the core.  I dont know what the andswers are or if we will ever find the andswers on all the selfless violence, my hubby has owned a handgun and is prior miitary.  Im myself am scared of guns.  One thing i will say is this group is one i truly respect and appreciate, alot of you are wiser than me. so it helps me alot to come on here and to hear your views.

    • Absolutely agree with Tulip, and Cynthia and Vikki made very good points.

      Hub and I are distressed over the fact that there is SO much emphasis with this president on gun control and he is not addressing the real issues that are plaguing America right now...loss of jobs, debt ceiling, constant threat of terrorism, his Secretary of State dismissing the issues of Bengazi...it is all disgusting to me...and Yes, we as Americans have every right to bear arms, to protect ourselves and to live in a nation that has the freedoms that were written into the Constitution.  What we should be afraid of is if our government becomes Socialist, then we have a problem.

    • Amen Mary!!

      What bothers me is that there is even focus on gun control at all when the focus should be at the root of the problem with these shootings—and that is mental health.  

      I think everyone can agree the health care system in this country is broken.  But the mental health care system doesn’t even exist.  Decades ago, crazy people who would harm themselves or others were locked up in institutions, now they are allowed to roam the streets.  

      President Ronad Reagan was shot.  The bullet passed less than an inch from his heart.  Did he try to ban guns?  No, he was a firm believer in our constitutional right to bear arms.  He also believed the govenerment was already too involved in our lives.  And that was 30 years ago.  I imagine he’s rolling over in his grave at the stuff our governerment is trying to pull off these days.

    • Recently a local news station was talking about all the crime in the area and how they need to look to the citizens to be new eyes and ears because there aren’t enough cops. Another recent event was talk of new gun laws which tech. says retired cops in the area are now illegally caring weapons. Now if you ask me instead of saying these cops have to get rid of the guns they have, these are the men and woman who still feel married to the job. And your now saying they don’t have a right to carry their registered weapon they have had all these years.Geez no wonder crime is going up..the meeting had like 300 people and not one was a drug dealer with an illegal weapon. I’m just saying no matter what laws they create the unjust will still do as they please and the people as a whole suffer.

    • Absolutely Wendy, and in all honesty, there will always be weapons brought into this country illegally, and is the government going to be able to track down each and every one of them..I think not!

      Yes, mental health issues are key, and when they closed those institutions down, the mentally ill has had free roam all over the place.  I was accosted once in a K-Mart parking lot by a crazed woman who came behind me and punched me very hard in the back..people witnessed this and did nothing to help me..she then ran away..the police could do nothing, she was long gone...so, yes, we need to re-open state run facilities and gather these poor folks up and medicate them.
