Gun ownership allows old and weak people to defend themselves against the strongest person that might do them harm.

It's shameful to want to disarm the weaker law-abiding people in our society for something that is proven not to work(guns illegal in Chicago and Washington DC and they have a higher number of gun deaths per capita than any other cities).

The evil is the person who did the shooting and not some inanimate object.

Calm down. I don't want you to take that gun in the house and shoot everyone (which is again quite common in gun deaths).

Ha ha!!!

Froggy, I'm not going to argue with you about this all night because it's not important. You obviously have a very strong bias against guns and that's okay. The thing is, you don't get to make decisions for everybody. You say guns are "a silly and stupid hobby". Well, there are millions of people out there who think posting on internet message boards is silly and stupid.

Calling gun crime the American holocaust is just ridiculous rhetoric. Look at those stats I posted. 616,000 deaths a year due to heart disease! Do you realize that MOST of those deaths could be prevented by improving diet and exercise? THAT is the American holocaust today.

Guns do not make murder and suicide more easy. That has been proven by study after study. When somebody wants to kill somebody or themselves, they will find a way to do it.

Guns in this country aren't going anywhere. You can scream about it all want but you better learn to live with it. And criminalizing them will make sure that only criminals will have them.

Have a nice night.

Almost no one is able to protect themselves with a gun. It's an offensive weapon, which put wrong ideas into people's heads (including suicide).

Like I said, Arizona is perhaps the most armed state. Where are the defenders of the 16 casualties? The whole thing went down in seconds.

To protect ourselves, remove all guns from society (it'll take about 100 years) so about 3 million people will have to needless die first.

So, the fact that 90 people in Japan (and other countries) die of gun shots means American's are more prone to murder and suicide? I don't think so. Instead of being so callous, why don't you walk around your neigborhood and imagine 10 to 20 blocks of people being shot in the head every single year?

Prayer, nor Jesus, had anything to do with it. It is the sheer determination of this woman and the skill of her doctors, along with the support of her friends and family. PERIOD!

What's really hypocritical is that after something like the Arizona bloodbath occurs the media and politcians said they don't understand why such a senseless thing happened.

What's there to understand? A madman is given access to automatic weapons (or worse). And these same politicians made it very easy for anyone to get them because of the gun lobby. They put their own interests on top of the intersets of the public.

You are betraying your crazy behavior. And you also like guns. That's not good for your argument.

Besides the cursed 2nd Amendmant, there is really no reasonable argument for the right to bear arms. That's why almost all civilized nations ban guns (except Switzerland -- which has the 2nd highest rate of gun deaths in the world).

J Doe is another halfwit moron who argues for the rights of madmen to access automatic weapons under the blog about a person who was shot in the head. How sick is the 2nd Amendment.

I am eternally grateful for this news. Gabby is a fine American. God has answered my prayers. Her courage and example is just epic. This is a definite miracle.

WhoKnows, why don't you go find an anti-gun forum and/or a political forum to spew your comments. Then we can get back to the story at hand.
