    The 1994 ban proved to be ineffective! Punishing the innocent for the acts of the insane is not exactly a sane response to the problem. We should improve access to mental health care. Criminals DON'T obey the law and will still gain access to assault weapons illegally!

    Only good points:
    "3. A more structured mental health support system for families that will allow them to get immediate assistance in regards to mental issues. There should be some pathway in which families can acknowledge mental issues within their family and seek public funded or private counseling services immediately.
    4. We must look at the design of primary and secondary schools in which these schools may need to have reinforced bullet proof windows and reinforced secure entrances."

    The bodies were not even cold yet and the anti- gun people came out of the woodwork to push their agendas.

    Go ahead and ban them,criminals and mercenaries will always find a way to get them,you're only going to take them away from law abiding citizens,good job. I just think its funny,after the Connecticut shooting they raised prices on firearms and ammunition,some stores stopped selling firearms. I wish people would stop and think for a second,if I was going to buy a gun to go out and injure people,would I go to a store and purchase it,or would I just find one off the street for half off? In other words the same people who do these shootings don't care if you ban them or raise the prices,because they always get their guns at a discount and now that you release these laws restricting assault arms from US that only means more will flock to the black market.

    The media and political figures will be milking the Conn. tragedy for all they can and for as long as they can.
