I find it unsettling how it's always the same people who cannot hold an adult conversation or debate without calling people names like they are 10 years old. I'm just hoping you're not any of MY neighbors....big poopy heads!

Artic, the obvious to most is not the obvious to all. Allot of the antis want all guns taken away and want to limit the amount of bullets a person can possess.they want even the single shots to go away. Geat post tho keep up the good fight

We need to be willing to fund mental health facilities to keep the crazies off the streets.

But that means more taxes.

Gun control can't work here because so many people already have guns. They could never be confiscated on such a massive scale.

Canada has very little gun violence because nobody has been able to have guns to begin with.

Most people do not realize that just the fact that a person may have a gun detours crime. If a thug walks up to 2 elderly ladies to rob them and one pulls out her gack I bet they both get away. My point is when the governnment takes our right to own a gun they are setting us up for all the scums to attack. Right now we do not have the police force to take care of the problems nor do we have room in our jails, we have criminals walking our streets in record numbers and we need to defend ourselves more than ever. I think we need to find a way to make sure these idiots are not on our streets and make our counrty safe so people did not have to worry about walking out of their homes for fear of being robbed or mugged. We need to start worrying about the rights of law abiding citizens and not so much about the rights of the criminals. The criminal has more rights than the victim.

Several good factual posters here this morning, WarrenP, you're still a total moron, there will be NO effective way to stop random gun violence, wackos and criminals will always find a way to get a gun, more gun control will not work, how has the old gun control laws been working for us, just like the "war on drugs"

With all due respect David, why should I be careful in stating the obvious? Certain people on here rant and rave about gun control, now one idiot comes in here and indicates there is a need to ban shotguns. Which is what the kid used. Go ahead, put your ban in place. Number one it will NOT stop gun crimes, nor will it stop gun sales. It will only be on the balck market. AND, these nuts do not look at the impact of banning gun sales will do. The revenue produced by the sale of hunting equipment, licenses, and the gas needed for the hunters to travel will impact the state of Ohio and other states. I can in some ways respect a law for assault weapons, but the goofs that think ALL guns need eliminated spea out of thier butt and do not think of the big picture. PLUS, they think just passing some ban will stop all guns. Well, yea, like the law has stopped drugs, hookers, fraud, rape, and all the other crimes that are illegal to do.

According to the FBI, in 2011: 1694 people were murdered w knives 726 people murdered w hands and feet 496 people murdered w clubs and hammers 323 people murdered with rifles OF ANY TYPE

With that said, we need to make knives, hands and feet, clubs, and hammers illegal as well. By the way, I proudly joined the NRA today, I recommend more do the same.

Warren Proud you couldn't be more ignorant if you tried. How's the strict gun control working out in Chicago!? Second highest crime rate in the country. Why!? Because criminals know that nobody has guns, well except for them. Last time I checked DRUGS are illegal too, and of course nobody has drugs either. Your simpleton approach is laughable, which is why I hate you, and people like you.

People in cars and DRs that screw up kill more people than people with guns. Lets ban cars and Drs also. Face the facts its our society that is the problem, not the guns. Lets blame an object rather than addressing the real problem.

You again show your ignorance Warrenproud. The kid used a shotgun. Only fired one shot, only had twenty shells on him. If you ban shotguns, you will ban alsmot every form of hunting in Ohio which is a major point of revenue for MANY local and national businesses.
