Other than guns for hunting and pistols for protection would you have a problem with giving up all military style weapons to protect the children of America. Is there any reason to have military style weapons. Is there any reason for a military style weapon. Shouldn't they all be banned.

Bravo, peeples! Excellent question.
Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Help eliminate craziness. Show more love.
But also stop taking Corporate, packaged food. All those chemicals make people crazy and ill.
A well educated people can be justly governed, but an uneducated people will be ruled. Bravo Landmark!
Words of wisdom once again. You said it very well!
Military style weapons are already banned. An AR15 is not a military weapon in any way shape or form. A .30-06 hunting rifle is more powerful than an AR-15 or any of the carbine models. The military uses fully automatic firearms.
Well stated...thank you for the voice of reason and Constitutionality...
I wish many of my fellow citizens understood that which you have so concisely expressed.
Can you explain how taking the firearms, protected by the Constitution, from law abiding citizens will cut down on violence?
fact is we are they only country not at war that loses our children to gun deaths daily. Do you have a solution or is is all about your rights?
The fact that we have the 2nd amendment has alot to do with why we aren't at war. We're one of the only nations on earth not to ever live under a military dictatorship. And nations like Britian have less gun violence, but more overall violence.
I think landmarkwealth is maybe correct that there is more violence without guns, however the choice of visiting a relative in hospital rather than the morgue gets my vote. and the violence is still there in America just everyone involved dies!
The history of the worlds greatest atrocities comes from gov't imposing tyranny on disarmed populations. Mao..65 million...Stalin 10 million...Hitler...6 million. Milosivic, Franco, on and on and on...How many kids were among those millions ???
Landmarkwealth Now I absolutely agree with that, and would be a hypocrite if I even hinted that I had an answer for it. But I will say that they were removed and cultural issues play a big part. The problem is human escalation, eg the cold war.
If you really believe we are the only country not at war that loses kids to guns daily --As you put it.
You don't get out much.
Check out the slums of Rio de Janeiro if you need an example.
Imagine if there was not a common level of education in America? then there would be trouble, thank whatever for education the way out of oppression.
Seems like some of you are not interested in any solutions just the same far right rhetoric and Paranoia I have heard for years. Comparing this country to Rio says even more. Gotta go and watch the news... They freed the 5 year old hostage today.
You're the one that just seemed to want to make up your own little 'factoid', not me. I simply pointed out that what you wrote was patently false.
Try a little less hysteria and hyperbole next time maybe.
There is a simple solution. Get rid of gun free zones so teachers like my wife are not sitting ducks anymore.
LandmarkWealth, do we arm our teachers? The same group that says we need ALL guns seem to be same group that screams we need more budget cuts. Another words, get rid of the police and arm the public. very scary!
If you want to know why states, counties and cities are going bankrupt and having to cut services, look no further than the neophyte residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and his sycophants.
If a teacher wants to be armed, they should have that option.
