The President Has a Chance to Make a Change

A simple sensible way to rethink our gun policy.

President Obama,

Please order the cessation of sales, importation and manufacture of all guns and ammunition until we figure this problem out! If it was found that someone had used a drug like Tylenol in some way to kill these children, what would we do? Remove their products from the shelves until safeguards are put in place.

As the NRA and the manufacturers of weapons devise ways to get around and whittle down any laws we put in place, the solutions that have been and are now being revised have not worked. It is time to take a bold, courageous stand. Take the time to reboot and rethink our approach to gun sales. The products that these businesses are producing are being used for other then what they were intended!

What can the President do? Under emergency powers the President should order ALL sales, importation and manufacture of all GUNS and AMMUNITION to cease or desist. Let the supply on the streets dry up. Institute a collection and buy back program to remove and destroy every illegal weapon and piece of ammo while we review methods and procedures guaranteeing operations can be verified and assurance can be made that their products only reach safe hands.

I thought liberals didn't believe in trickle down? Only when it applies to guns? Prevent Joe Somebody from being able to purchase a gun for law abiding reasons, and there's no chance it could 'trickle down' to Tony the Terrorist. Only real problem with that though is that you're violating the rights of Joe. Is it OK to violate Joe's rights because you are scared and believe that guns have no legitimate purpose? Welcome to the animal kingdom. Eat or be eaten. Guess that life lesson missed you, huh? Don't worry, pink elephants and rainbows await you in the safe walled garden of your violence free utopia.

I only watch Fox news when I want a laugh, but I guess you must know more about me than I do. And no I'm not scared of everyone around me, I'm scared for the POSSIBILITY that someone who DOES NOT FOLLOW YOUR LAWS wants to do harm to me or my family. There's a difference. "You make no sense You agree that we need a national back ground check and to stop sales to all non legal owners yet you refuse the laws that attempt to do so " Completely false. I understand the desire to have those laws in place, however unlike you I understand this isn't a fairytale and not everyone will obey your new laws"and am completely aware that I still have to prepared for the worst. as should you. and there are people out there (not me personally) who ARE scared of people like you telling them what is or isn't adequate in defending their home or what is or isn't adequate in using hunting or at a range. THAT is what I'm not ok with, you're telling me what I can or can't do RESPONSIBLY based on the acts of criminals. And as far as Cuomo's law, I'm not supporting any law that bans weapons just on how they look and regardless of their capabilities. It is unfair to ALL gun types that fire one bullet per one pull of the trigger. No police of military officer uses a gun like that

we agree on the same ends, just not the reasons and ways of meeting those ends
