      The gun lobby has grown far to powerful and is putting an antiquated ideology ahead of the safety of all Americans. We must put an end to the stranglehold that the gun lobby has placed on gun control legislation. It is time that the rest of the population have a voice.

      assualt guns, AK47 etc should be banned this way people are not allowed to obtain them and innocent children and adults are not murdered! These high power assualt guns are not meant for hunting only for killing they must be banned and we need tight gun control to stop the violence in our cities. Only in this country do you hear about so many assualt gun killings!

      To protect our future generations and to ensure their safety, especially in school where a child should feel the safest, from people who use guns to solve their everyday problems and inflict terrible pain on not only the victim but countless family members which have to live with such grief!! The fact that our government can turn to "GOD" and ask for forgiveness and to open his door for these children makes me physically ill. God has nothing to do with anything and god won't help anyone. Such a shame to see young children die for absolutely no reason, and once they are gone, they are GONE FOREVER!!
