Yeah, sure. Make it illegal for whack jobs to own guns for the purpose of killing people. Then, if they kill anyway, hang them high.

There’s all kinds of gun laws on the books. What will more do to keep guns out of the hands of street gangs? Signs designating “gun free zones” are a farce.

0bama should.

Romney should beat Zer0 over the head about providing free guns to Mexican Cartels used in 100's of murders.

I think we should pass libtard-control measures. Almost every time one of these mass killings happen it turns out to be some pissed off lib.

IMHO once you depart from reason and resort to force to persuade someone to your ideology you can no longer claim to be a conservative.

Obama should come out FOR gun control.

It's a settled issue - (outside of newsrooms and elite colleges) citizens do NOT support gun control. The issue works against democrats who run for office... So, PLEASE all you people in the MSM - push Obama to support gun control... citizens figured this one out...

Idiotic. Nobody in the audience had a gun because the theater was a ‘gun free zone.’ No telling how many concealed carriers left their guns at home. The only person in control of his guns was the perpetrator.

The difference between mitt romney and obama on gun control... obama has never signed any anti gun legislation into law... mitt has signed the most Draconian anti gun legislation in the Union. Neither man can be trusted with the Second Amendment. No, mitt is not obama but what I state here is the absolute truth.

Yes, I support removing guns from the secret service, Bo and Moochie’s body guards, and any govn’t entity that bullies taxpayers. I also support removing guns from any politician who supports taking guns from citizen taxpayers.

Gun control means taking away the rights of average Americans so as to protect those like Bloomberg who have their own private security and police under their thumb. Most of us have only our firearms to protect us from potential criminals and anarchists. Those like the Bloomberg and other billionaires have their private armies.
