    Good then we can fight and destroy the alcohol and tobacco lobby and make alcohol illegal, as well as fast food, since those kill tens of thousands more per year.

    We should have the right to own guns and rifles to protect home , family and our property. Criminals will always find wats to obtain guns , because they do not go through legal channels to obtain them. We don't need any military type weapons to be owned by citizens. If someone comes on my property to cause harm to me or my family , you can bet they will be meeting a gun in their face. First call 911 , but if no one comes then you are on your own so you better have a plan.

    It’s easier to move to another country than fight for gun reform in the US which will never happen. It’s a land of confusion over there. There are just wayyyy too many ignorant people there. It’s like trying to get women’s rights in some backward Middle Eastern country. As guns are like a religion to you US dumbbells

    Americans do not require these weapons in our society. Many civilized countries do not have this level of gun violence. They have common sense laws to protect the public against gun violence. It’s to protect the masses from non-sensible gun ownership.

    He's upset that his daughter got killed, totally understandable. Doesn't mean he's correct. We've got to be able to put our emotions aside and use our heads even at the toughest times. That's when clear thinking is most important, when it's hardest to do.

    I feel bad for your daughter, but the gun that was used is not the problem, you are attacking the wrong thing, you not going to change anything going after guns and ammunition,your going to be a pawn for the left on gun control, when you should make a fight for mental heath and getting these trouble kids access to help and spotting the signs that are present before this kid, went to school and murdered his classmates, or the coward police officer that was to close to retirement, that failed to enter the school, and confront the killer, and possibly saving lives, instead you want to go after the gun, ?
