    No but they will gun control it more. First the magazines from unlimited to 10 or less rounds then AR's, AKs, etc. Then tax the **** out guns and ammo to try to price you out of it. Then make it harder to get one, waiting times, limit on how many guns and ammo you can buy a day or month. Finally it might be a long shot but a proof of sanity from a doctor.

    I think it's inevitable. I hate to say it but America has passed the tipping point. There's simply more of them than us and all the bravado and tough talk won't make a difference. The tragic events of this past week gave all the momentum the Democrats needed to reinstate some type of assualt weapon ban. It's just a matter of time. Sorry but that's the long and the short of it. It's really only a question of how long because it'll be a very slow digression.

    Will they ever take our guns?

    I sometimes wonder if the government doesn't have something to do with horrible events like this just like the fast n furious deal that went wrong but was started So they could say guns are causing problems and there needs to be more stricter gun laws. I'm just saying

    That's out there. I'm 100% confident the government had nothing to do with Sandy Hook. That type of speculation only ensures that nobody will take you seriously.

    I understand the govt. had nothing to do with the elementary shooting, that was just a tragic shooting from a mentally unstable person who should of never had access to those kinds of weapon. I guess I should of been more specific as to events. I was talking more like selling of illegal guns Or knowing of terrorist activities and not acting on information they obtain.

    This is the response to my email from Senator Crapo of Idaho - I love living in Idaho...


    Dear Stephanie,

    Thank you for contacting me to share your thoughts about the recent tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.

    As a father and grandfather, words cannot adequately describe the profound sadness that I feel for all those affected by this senseless act of a troubled young man. On Friday, December 14, 2012, we all witnessed the unfolding scene whereby the police responded to a shooting at a Connecticut school where at least 26 lives were taken, and all far too soon. Our children are our most vulnerable members of society and it is our duty to keep them out of harmís way.

    This devastating act was a terrible tragedy that stuns the nation. As an ongoing investigation, the exact situation and motive of the shooter remain uncertain, but the devastation it has had on the community, and to citizens all across the country, does not. My sincerest and heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to all the innocent victims and their families.

    In the days and weeks going forward, a number of ideas will be brought forward relating to guns and mental health. As Congress acts, it must be in full recognition that the choices we make must reflect the realities that we cannot completely legislate away risk and violence out of society. Burdening law-abiding citizens of this country with additional gun restrictions is not the answer to safeguarding the public from further attacks, and weakening Second Amendment rights is not an appropriate response to this tragic act of a lone gunman.

    Let me reassure you that I do not support gun control. We must protect and preserve our constitutional right to bear arms. Our country should have a thoughtful and reasoned debate on how to address mental health issues and crime control, while still preserving our constitutional rights. The Second Amendment reads: "A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." I firmly believe this provision prohibits the federal government from denying law-abiding citizens this right.

    Again, thank you for contacting me. Please feel free to contact me in the future on this or other matters of interest to you. For more information about the issues before the U.S. Senate as well as news releases, photos, and other items of interest, please visit my Senate website, U.S. Senator Mike Crapo's Homepage.

    Sincerely,

    Mike Crapo
    United States Senator

    I believe that there WILL be an effort to push the taking of some weapons.
    Fortunately, many of our congressman love their jobs SO MUCH...that the fear of the uproar of taking presently owned firearms may just keep them from supporting such a move.
    They may just decide to vote for another ban without touching the grandfathered weapons. This would allow them to play both sides of the aisle.

    That LEO was in CT. CT doesn't allow FTF gun sales. Every firearm, long or short, has to be legally transferred and that IS in the records/paperwork.

    The lawmakers will try to eliminate online gun & ammo sales, bulk ammo purchases, and apply a bullet tax. Just wait and see.

    That translation is incorrect and always has been. The original commandment said, "Thou shall not murder". BIG difference. The Bible clearly stipulates multiple times that there is, indeed, a time to kill.

    I don't see confiscation of currently owned guns, but I wouldn't be surprised if more regulations controlled getting ammo and buying additional guns. I think the gun show loop hole will likely be closed. Frankly, I'd feel funny about buying a gun from a total stranger under the current environment. I have no red flags that would block approval -- at least under current guidelines. I have a CHL and I worry about the Feds trying to take over that arena. I live in Texas, and it was both a good investment of my time and not too terribly difficult to get a license. It just took the state forever to process it, but that was immediately after Obama's first coronation, so there was a real land rush.

    Well, so far Dicks and Walmart has pulled all tactical looking weapons off the self. If these left wing donkeys think for more then 3 seconds they will see that gun control is a stupid answer and will only cause more murders of innocents.

    The Batman movie shooting was in a "GUN FREE" theater, the OR mall shooting was in a "GUN FREE" mall and the last, sick, CT school shooting was, well, in a school i.e. "GUN FREE" zone.
    See a pattern here? They all have taken place where the wacko's know that they will not be confronted with a armed person who could put a damper on their sick plot. And some will say, "They wanted to die anyway". While it may be true in the ones whom commited suicide, they were still cowards and would not want to get shot by someone else.

    also...
    Even SWITZERLAND, a socialist country (yes, socialist) knows how to do guns right. Every man, woman, and child (after 18) is required [by law] to learn how to shoot and handle a weapon.

    They have ZERO gun crime. Wonder why? I also wonder how many home invasions there are annually? Hmmm...interesting.

    "The rate of private gun ownership in Switzerland is 45.72 firearms per 100 people"
    -gunpolicy.org

    Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Plain and simple. It's just a brick with out a booger hook on the trigger.

    A few other national facts... First we start with Chicago again...
    * Since the outset of the Chicago handgun ban, the percentage of Chicago murders committed with handguns has averaged about 40% higher than it was before the law took effect.

    * Since the outset of the Florida right-to-carry law, the Florida murder rate has averaged 36% lower than it was before the law took effect, while the U.S. murder rate has averaged 15% lower.

    * Since the outset of the Texas right-to-carry law, the Texas murder rate has averaged 30% lower than it was before the law took effect, while the U.S. murder rate has averaged 28% lower.

    Exactly like they do with Sudafed now... There will be an ammo registry and all purchases will be logged. If you try to buy more than your "allotted" amount or try to buy from more than one store in a short period of time, you won't be allowed to and you're name will go on a watch list.

    That is absolutely not true. Many people have killed others with their gov't issued firearms, including family members. It had gotten bad enough that Switzerland was beginning to rethink their "arm everyone" policy. Don't know where they stand on it, today, though...
