It is a touchy subject. There are arguements both ways.
News.yahoo.com
But after this even Pro gun folks are saying we need to take a serious look at things. For example. As a veteran I also support the fact that no one has any reason to have a high capacity magazine. Those are for war. Self defense and hunting require only a few bullets. There are also loopholes to background checks.

In general people believe laws against guns will not prevent criminals for getting them so law abiding citizens should be able to protect themselves. Its a very tough subject and one of intense debate. Many of which I have been in the thick of this week and have been pulled both ways from my relatively moderate position.

There are other issues that must be address also, Mental Health being a major one.

Exactly, not even a huntsman needs more than 10 rounds or so.

and that's another thing i can't really get. Here we get a lot of critisism from various people because our social care system is so costly. We nearly pay the most taxes in the world, but we get the BEST health care in the world too.

when people are sick and can't afford a cure, they can't work = unemployment = government needs to pay out unemployment benefits etc.
Those unemployment benefits get a lot of critisism too because there would be a lot of people who make profit of it and that is indeed unfair, but when we lower the benefits or take them away, you make the real unemployed and disabled even poorer, so they can't buy stuff, which worsens the state of any economy.

But i doubt you want to hear about that. In Belgium we have a strict gun law, despite this 1 year ago::

(the article is not that accurate) He had a criminal record, so normally he shouldn't have gotten hold of guns and other military equipment, but he slipped past our controlls and probably got those weapons of the illegal market in Brussels.He even threw ****** grenades..

I fear that after this horrifying tragedy, we're going to see a knee jerk reaction that won't help anything. For example, one of the things several people are calling for now are stricter gun control laws. Now being a gun owner myself, I may be a bit biased, but I believe that this won't solve anything.

If a criminal wants to kill people, like this crazy did, they will find a way to do, no matter the laws in place, whether they get a gun off a black market or use other methods, as did the man who stabbed 23 children in a village in Cenpeng, China.

The best way to solve this problem, in my opinion, would be to either get rid of the gun-free zone in schools, which criminals read as areas of no resistance; or we make it mandatory for every school to have at least one armed guard posted, and by armed, I don't mean with just a tazer. Just my two cents.

Everyone is full aware that the gun law itself is not the cause of this mad killing...
What we do know is that this gun law makes accesing guns much MUCH easier. Do you think getting guns out off the black market is a cakewalk?

On the other hand we dont have these gun free zones or armed guards, yet we never encounter as much **** like this here when compared to the usa. Altering the gun law would also show respect and goodwill to all victims and show that they do care.

agreed, the thing is Texas is a good example as to why its a good thing to have citizens carry weapons, i believe that its comes down to a serious backround check, and people should be kat scanned prior to being allowed to carry a firearm

Gun laws should not be priority. We need to devote more resources to the psychological well-being of our citizens. We need to focus on stopping people from reaching that breaking point where they get inclined to slaughter elementary school students. He didn't need a gun to do this- and odds are if you want to kill children, you aren't abiding by gun laws in the first place.
We need to prevent the problem at its source, which is the psychopaths responsible.

True, i was shocked when the media denounced his asperger syndrom as 'the unability to feel other people's feelings' Dear lord, autism affects each child differently. They gave as much affection as othersbut show it differently. Getting the righ diagnoses are vital to help people with mental problems and the way that the media somethimes portrays them disturbs me. 'He was asocial' 'he had autism' 'he played violent video games' *sigh*

I completely agree. I live with someone who has asperger's syndrome, and the only thing wrong with him is that he isn't as skilled as so-called "normal" people when it comes to social interactions. He certainly isn't unstable, as this ge'hutuun clearly was. Blaming this incident on a mental condition like they have is completely unfair of them.

I'm not defending the actions of It-Who-Shall-Never-Be-Named-Again; I am instead defending those people who are different from the "normal" population

A moment of thought and prayer for the families of all those wonderfull lights that were destroyed in Newtown.

Description

I just want to share these images with you and tell some of the stories of true heroes. I feel it i very important that we do not mention the killers name, his face for these people feed off of this attention. They should remain unknown and be erased from history. The media should receive no encouragement to show these peoples faces.
The lady in white is Dawn Hochsprung, the schools principal. The the killer started shooting Dawn and the school psychologist Mary Sherlach ran toward the gunshots. They both attempted to rush the killer to stop him and both paid for it with there lives.
The girl with the green scarf is Victoria Soto. She was one of the teachers and when she heard the gunshots she hid her students in the closet while she stayed to face the gunman and tell him her students were in the gym. Because of this 10 of her 15 students were able to survive.
Certainly we can make our world better than this. As I have said before this latest shooting has hit me very very hard. I have been affected by this in a way that feels like one of my own loved ones was killed. I want the world to know there names and I want the world to give the killers no recognition. They should forever be forgotten. RIP beautiful angels of Newtown Elementary.

The list of names are names I will not forget
