Have you ever lost a child? If you have,my condolences,if you haven't you are in no position to judge other people's reaction. My son died suddenly at home in his sleep in the bedroom right next to mine. My husband and I found him. I felt like I was having an out of body experience as I called the police and an ambulance for my husband because I feared ,judging by his reaction,that he was having a heart attack. I was doing all the "right" things but it all felt unreal to me and I wasn't crying,I was shocked! When you see these parents in a day after interview they are in shock and many of them,not me,are heavily tranquilized,so don't judge,every reaction is individual. Trust me, these people are experiencing the worst sorrow and grief there is. Their lives are changed forever and not usually in a good way. Most of these parents will wind up divorced and many families completely fall apart.

Question to everyone here: Why do you think the government wants to do a gun-ban (semiautos or others) here in America?

Which answer do you think is closer to the truth:

a) Because they love you, only have your best interests in mind, and they want to save lives, especially the lives of children.

or

b) Because they know if the people are disarmed then it would be virtually impossible for them to fight back when the government tries to enslave them.

That's the lie you're buying into. You might as well have said A, because you obviously trust this government that doesn't represent you.

""You have to be deranged to pick up a Bushmaster or some weapon and go into a school and kill people. How do we deal with that part of the problem? That has to be looked at with respect to guns themselves.""

Dear Mr. Secretary,

Did the bushmaster or some other weapon take itself to the school and start shooting?

No.

There. The answer to the free fire zone massacres is in front of you: It's the people, stupid.

No new or existing gun control would have had an affect on a Sandy Hook-like situation. The reason is because gun control controls gun sales and possession. The shooter neither bought or owned any of the weapons he used. He is a criminal. He stole those weapons from someone who would qualify on any purchase or possession restriction you can think of.

The shooter's mother knew he had problems. She tried to do something about it, but the government (you know, those people you trust with your life and well being from cradle to grave) decided against a law that would have helped her out.. mere months before SH happened.

Now, tell us again how government id going to "fix" this.

Thank you Mr. Powell, you have lost the title General ever since you lied in front of the United Nations to get us into the biggest con job of a war ever, the Iraq war.
After insisting on the existence of huge stockpiles of horrific chemical and biological weapons, Powell turned his attention to Iraq’s nuclear weapon capability. All lies, he knew it, and many brave men and women lost their lives because of it. I will never listen to a word he says.
He should be in jail. He is a disgrace to the uniform.

Disarmament of the people ultimately creates inequality between the government and the governed. The "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" is what differentiates America from other so-called democratic nations.

Powell is clearly a totalitarian, this has been obvious for a while. Any military person knows the difference between a true "assault weapon" and those look-a-likes that are currently available to the American public. The look-a-likes are no more deadly than their hunting/sporting counterparts.

And he gave up his real position when he said, "whole ball of wax" which means the complete disarmament of the American people. While you may HATE guns, our founders had the wisdom to include the RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. It is the last line of defense between We the People and any potential tyrannical government which may arise to differentiate itself from the people by attempting to disarm us.

When you need to lay down some serious fire power you need at least 30 rounds. Why would you need to do that you ask? Right off the top of my head I'd say a tyranist attack or defense against a riot which we have seen in this country on several occasions. As for sporting use, at my gun club we use hi cap mags for engaging multible targets while being timed in league events.Its pretty fun but not too easy, takes practice.

"Look-a-Like" seems to be more powerful and dangerous as it was used in Columbine, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin Temple, Aurora-CO and Sandy Hook-CT and many other places. - Simply you are trying to undermine the dangerous of assault weapons, mentally weak, thugs and NRA

Why not ammunition control? The only way to die from a gun is if it's tossed out an 80 story window. I can see thousands of more employees losing their jobs over this. Remington, Winchester, etc from secretaries to manufactureres. It's all about stupidity. These banners can only speak one language. No education in the US. They call this America and God Bless America----America covers the southern parts of Argentina throughout the freezing tops of Canada. God Bless all of that? How about investigate what makes people snap? Why not ban bullies? Etc....Erection commercials.....how do you explain that to your kids when they ask? I wish I was 100 living back in the good days when careers existed not machines. Oh yeah, and there are families having 5-6 kids. Wow! And they will all grow up to raise families on livable wages?

Go figure! As an office in the U.S. Army Gen. Powell violated his oath to protect the constitution against all enemys foreign and domestic by participating in and/or supervising illegal unconstitutional wars so it isn't really remarkable when, as a civilian, he supports the ruling elite in their attempt to destroy the second amendment a further secure the fascist dictatorship they are attempting to create.

Bush at least took it to the Congress for a vote
....which is more than Obama has done with his illegal actions.

Any weapon that holds more than six bullets will be banned one day. These mass killing machines have no place in society.

Please give us one useful purpose for an assault weapon. We keep waiting for an answer.

Assault weapons are all about feeding the ego, a handgun works just fine to "protect your family" from the imaginary menace that seems to always be in the otherwise empty mind of Repubs.

We use rifles with hi cap mags in shooting leagues at my gun club. You must engage multible targets within a certain time frame, its fun. For defense purposes , defending yourself during a riot would require lots of fire power. We have seen riots several times in America. Also lets not forget that serious fire power would be needing in the event of a tyranist attack should it ever happen. Dont roll your eyes, I bet you have a smoke alarm and a spare tire, chances are you wont need either but you cant be too careful.

It amazes me how stu-pid gun owners are. Instead of buying an assault rifle to make you feel like some big powerful man you obviously aren't, get some therapy. Do you think an army of zombies is going to try and attack your house? How many people that break into homes have assault rifles? In your path-etic mind what do you think is going to happen that you will need more than a handgun? Also if you have your firearm locked up and safe like you claim wouldn't it take a couple minutes to unlock where you keep it and load it? Do you think a robber is going to wait a couple minutes while you do that? It would be a lot faster to grab a baseball bat or a vase or is it possible that most of you are lying and you keep your guns in a dresser or under your pillows where the little kiddies can find them, doesn't sound like a responsible gun owner.....I have no problem with a handgun but there is no reason for an assault weapon except for as I said to boost the little ego of little men.

I recommend walking away from buying things for sense of meaning. Learn a skill or find a hobby. Enrich your life with something meaningful. Buying cool stuff (assault weapon) is a false cure to your empty life.
