Really getting to be ridiculous. This country needs some gun control and fast.

No this country needs to allow CHL's in the class room fast. Im just glad that in 90% of my classes their is at least one or two cop's, most of whom I know and know they carry off duty.

I know this could get heated, so I'll keep this short and hopefully factual.

Gun control wouldn't have stopped this event. Unless we systematically destroy every gun owned by the general populace and come up with a way to enforce the strictest gun control on the planet, some idiot will always have access to a firearm, ammunition, and (very unfortunately) people at which to shoot.

Oddly enough, if we outlaw guns, gun crime will escalate to seemingly enormous proportions, since the simple act of owning a gun will become a crime.

Maybe instead of gun control, require everyone to carry a gun. I doubt this psycho would have got many shots off... although we might end up with more road rage shootings... ok, I don't know the answer, but I'll be damned if the gub'ments gunna take my hunting rifle!

Its an interesting topic and can get heated. I work in law enforcement and always carry concealed when off duty. The shame is the right to bear arms which we all know about is just abused. I work with plenty of guys who hunt, and know plenty of civilian/military/and LE that are responsible gun owners.

By control I personally mean some way to regulate where guns end up. I think the most evident thing is that we have way too many weapons in this country floating around in the wrong channels. When you compare our violent crimes involving firearms to European or other foreign countries it is astounding the difference. What do they do right that we do so wrong to maintain control on this?

No thank you. It is a horrible shame when criminals and crazies get a hold of guns but I prefer to leave what's left of the Constitution of the United States of America as intact as possible. It is after all what made this country great.

I think I read that the shooter used a shotgun and a pistol, so even if gun control was implemented, I think there are enough hunters that shotguns would still be around.

Terrible incident, I really don't have a solution for the problem.

It's gun control that creates these "Gun Free Zones" where people are supposed to be "Safe".

All they do is stop law abiding people from being able to defend themselves.

Kooks & Criminals love "Gun Free Zones" because "Gun Control" has made them very safe....Safe for the Kook & Criminal.
