OK, but what to do about those who choose to break the law in the first place? Somebody willing to shoot kids isn't going to be stopped by lack of legal right to buy a gun. Most gun crime in our cities is by folks already not allowed to own a gun or done with a stolen gun.

What about the mental health part of this? I am not in favor on the NRA, but it's not just the guns, it the illness of people that commit these crimes.

I'm a gun owner that supports all the gun violence prevention organizations with my time and money. As a country, we are completely irresponsible when it comes to guns. The madness from the NRA only makes me work harder.

The arguments against gun control are ridiculous. They say that criminals won't pay any attention to the laws. If that is your position, I have two basic questions: 1). Why have any laws at all then? 2) why make it any easier for these criminals? All they have to do now is go to a gun show for the gun and a awl mart to acquire enough ammo for an army. You don't need 100 round magazines to defend yourself. Maybe some of you need that for hunting if you miss the first 99 times but maybe that's a sign to take up another hobby.
