Gun owners and non-gun owners alike agree on expanding background checks, making gun trafficking a serious crime with stiff penalties, making it illegal for all stalkers and all domestic abusers to buy guns, and expanding mental health resources so the mentally ill find it easier to receive treatment than to buy firearms.
As gun owners, my husband and I understand that the Second Amendment is most at risk when a criminal or deranged person commits a gun crime. These acts only embolden those who oppose gun ownership. Promoting responsible gun laws protects the Second Amendment and reduces lives lost from guns.
The vast majority of gun owners don't kill, but people who do kill, tend to kill with guns, and often with illegal guns.
There's no evidence that I'm aware of that guns protect liberty.
Cameras aren't guns. They can't really hurt you.
The major political battles about guns in our society concern handguns and assault weapons, not long arms like hunting rifles.
I do not believe in people owning guns. Guns should be owned only by the police and military. I am going to do everything I can to disarm this state.
We hear so much about weapons of mass destruction. But nine out of 10 war victims are killed by guns. It's the AK-47 that's a weapon of mass destruction.
It's wrong, and it's racist, and it's bigoted to say that guns are quintessentially American.
There's no evidence that I'm aware of that guns reduce crime.
The pervasiveness of guns in our society is destroying America.
You have to believe. You have to stick to your guns.
Guns require a finger to pull the trigger.
I seem to be getting a lot of things pushed my way that are strong women. It's like people see Hackers and they send me offers to play tough women with guns, the kind who wear no bra and a little tank top. I'd like to play strong women who are also very feminine.
I like to have guns around. I don't like to carry them.
I always believed it would happen and stuck to my guns.
Nobody is going to try to confiscate guns, although some Web sites know better: President Obama, they are certain, wants to.
There are online forms you can fill out to send to your lawmakers, demanding that nothing - nothing at all or in any way - be done about any guns whatever, anywhere.
It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?
The artist that had the biggest impact on me was Michael Jackson. He was my Elvis and Beatles. When I was 15, I listened to a lot of Sinatra, but my jean jacket didn't have, 'I love Frank' on it, it had, 'I love AC/DC', 'Guns N Roses', 'Pearl Jam'. I thought Eddie Vedder was the second coming.
We have a saying in Guns N' Roses: 'When somebody's gonna get yelled at, they're gonna get the corn.'
While I understand the passions and the anger that arise over the death of Michael Brown, giving into that anger by looting or carrying guns, and even attacking the police, only serves to raise tensions and stir chaos.
When things go badly, individuals look for scapegoats. I just do not believe that barbed-wire fences or guns on our border will solve any of our problems.
More guns equaling more safety is a slippery slope, and what makes it so is human blood.
Guns are the ultimate bulwark against government misbehavior.
