Guns

The Newtown, CT brutal shooting, and now a man calls in a fire in NY to shoot the firefighters upon arrival. The shooter, who killed two New York firefighters was released from prison after having murdered his grandmother with a hammer.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/two ... 05823.html

This year theres been three shootings.The NRA responded to the elementary school shooting by suggesting armed officers at every school. Is this really necessary? Do we have to live in such a state of fear for some of these things?

Do you think the second amendment, the right to bear arms, ought to be changed or remain? If certain weapons are removed, do you think the same determined people to carry out these horrible crimes will find other methods?

Just looking for some opinions, you can find articles on all this stuff by just going to Yahoo News.

As well as the fact the NRA even got their facts wrong. Only those that are currently serving in the military or work security are allowed to own a weapon. So ya. they on their own there.

They make the argument, you need a gun to stop the gun... Why have the first gun?
In Canada we still have guns but when there is gun related crime, at least here in quebec for the most part it is related to the mafia so regular citizens are not targeted but in usa where anyone can get a gun without a background check (If you buy it online) then that leaves the door open for anyone to use them... Anyone is a lot of people.

It's in the constitution, guns aren't the problem its people with a lack of appreciation for human life. I've owned guns since i was 7 years old and have never used one improperly. I enjoy target shooting and carry Sig Sauer P239 on my person. I've never had to draw and hope i never do. If stricter gun control is implemented or gun bans the people who turn over their firearms will be the ones like me, law abiding citizens. The people that aren't the problem.

Long story short people are assholes, leave my guns alone.

Then why is nothing being done about the people? If they say mental illness is lacking care then why is that not being fixed?

Why is it not being fixed? Because America has a **** up health care system and mental illness is looked down upon in society. No one wants to admit they have a mental sickness so they don't go get treated to avoid being judged by people.
Its unfortunate that people do this too because nothing good ever comes from it.

My girlfriend maria is a criminal justice major, she will be the first to tell you the system doesn't work. The majority of people in american prisons have mental illnesses, and as it stands our ability to rehabilitate these people is shitty at best. It needs large scale reform and the money for it just is not there.
