what a bunch of ignorant questions!!

should assault weapons be banned? did you know that Osama Bin Bama wants to ban automatic weapons, and that includes shotguns! everyone better be careful what they wish for cause once they are gone we may never get them back!

I can very easily see some type of civil war happening if the govt. tries to come and take our guns. it wont be pretty!

Gun free zones, giving criminals easy targets.

There's a reason that unstable people choose gun free zones in which to inflict their carnage - easy targets and less chances of a confrontation with an equal. Gun control, quite simply, should be wielded by the person that has a gun in their hand, and not by the government.

People Annoy Me    

All of my heart goes out to the families that are involved in this horrific scene. That being said, America needs to look at it's gun laws now. Before, guns took a lot of time to reload. Now, anyone can get their hands of some sort of Semi-Automatic weapon if they so wish to desire. Its like buying candy at the Candy Store. And it's so easy to take a life with one pull of that trigger. So yes I fully agree. Have a mental test in. Ban most of the guns for the public to have. I'm sick of hearing about these stories and I cannot bear to see the pictures of the families when they hear the grim news about their families. It's time for some sort of change.

This has nothing to do with any controls over gun laws or security in school. It this idiotic websites that glorify these whackjobs. It's only a matter of hours before TMZ shows pics of the shooter, his family, his picture from dating sites, his picture from school. And there will be some bigger jackass out there that will be looking to make history. I blame the media for part of this mess the world is in. Come on people stop making stupid comments like having a mental test to people that apply for a gun. There should be a mental test for people that post comments on this site. TMZ stick to celebrity gossip and stop giving these killers attention!!!

Guns, no guns? I think we need to be concerned about the mental state of these people, problem, did this person show signs? My fear, say no guns were involved, what if some whack job deviced some type of bomb and more lives were lost in a situation like this? How are loose canons like this found? Why is there more stress in society today? Can the media use it's self to educate us more on mental illness and on people who could snap?

Truth    

There should be a "mental test" before you can VOTE. Obama voters saying that if guns are taken away from law-abiding people, crime will magically disappear. What idiots. The places in America with the tightest control have by far the highest violent crime rates. You don't see any nuts going into a school or mall in Texas or Tennessee and pulling out a gun. That's because they will get took down quick.

After yesterday's terrible tragedy, I now feel that the Gun Laws in our Country MUST CHANGE. At present, there is NO CORI check for anyone who wants to own a gun permit, and that should CHANGE. Background checks would at least STOP a CRIMINAL NOT getting a gun. I know guns are everywhere, but SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE> STRICTER LAWS MOST DEFINITELY.....

We need to pass tests in order to drive a car, and then we need to renew that license. Guns should be no different. And if you own a registered gun and break the law, it should be taken away. And if you sell or own a gun illegally, you should go to jail.

I have no problem with responsible people owning guns. But there are far too many people who own guns that are not responsible. They don't know how to shoot it, or they don't keep it locked up safely out of the reach of the wrong hands. People who are in the wrong state of mind are buying weapons. Guns shows do not have to follow the same laws as a gun shop. I could go on and on. And I really don't understand the need for a civilian to own a semi-automatic weapon.

Not everyone should own a gun. It is dangerous when guns are in the wrong hands. We need to do something to change the laws. Yes, people kill people. So let's make irresponsible gun ownership a thing of the past.

I think metal detectors should be at every school. When something major like this happens, it should only be broadcast to that community because there will always be a person with the same problem within the United States. They just see that as the solution to their problem.

Ever wonder why No one calls for the MAKERS of the guns to STOP? Too much MONEY at stake to go that far eh? Is it too far NOW?

Let's not forget that the weapons were not actually owned by Adam. He found a way to get his hands on them anyway, just like any criminal or mentally troubled person will once stricter gun laws have disarmed the innocent law-abiding citizens.
