    What I find funny not funny really is that we are debating weather or not to put armed guards in schools when we put armed guards in banks and put gold on lock down to protect it and our money when did we as a nation decide money was more valuable that children and the people who cant protect themself's for me its not wake up America protect our children at all cost..,.

    Good Day
    I am a 59 year old, CW4 Veteran who shot on shooting teams for many years. I totally agree with this young man. I can tell you guns do not shoot people, people shoot people. Viedo Games are unbelieveable now days especially the MA Violent ones. Why not take them off the shelf. When I was that age I played with pacman. Compare pacman with the violent games we have now.. Come on folks put blame where blame really exists. The NRA is not in the wrong. They agree with the assult weapons being taken off the street. Lets work with them not against them.. Think about the viedo games..

    Why are we blaming video games, movies and tv shows for violence, they have this same content in other countries like Canada and the UK but they don't have a crazy violence problem. I think blaming entertainment shows that we are afraid to talk about gun control and mental health issues.

    Nobody should be allowed to have high powered guns. people should only be allowed to buy hunting guns or hand guns. If you want to use a high powered gun you should only be allowed to use them at a shooting range and can not leave with them. Who really needs to own one anyway? Nobody! There is no reason at all for someone to have that kind of gun. Yes people to kill people with guns everybody knows that, but if they have a regular gun they are going to have to stop and reload which means more people can run away and live. I honestly do not beleive violent games have a affect on kids about killing people maybe it might make them bullies when they get older yes. That just my thoughts.
