Gun Rules: What Do You Support?

New state law and Obama's proposals bring gun ownership questions into focus.

President Obama outlined several proposals on gun ownership Wednesday afternoon, a day after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill designed to limit the firepower and violence in the state.

Both moves come in response to the murders at Sandy Hook school in Connecticut a month ago.

What are your thoughts? Will some of these changes make Americans safer? Or will they step on the ability of of gun owners to obtain the weapons they want?

Please tell us in the comments.

The second amendment issue is a conservative red herring. This is 2013, not 1776. The best course of action for a person in an emergency is to call 911 from a landline if possible (since it is more difficult for the police to trace a call from a cell phone). A weapon is only as good as the person behind it. Unless an individual is highly trained in the use of weapons in an emergency and under duress, ie, military/law enforcement, it is very possible that the weapon will be taken from the average person and used against them. All too often idle guns in the home are a tragedy waiting to happen.

How is this not on topic? Most gang members are here illegally with illegal guns and our borders are wide open. How about you don't try to tell me what is on or off topic and I will refrain from the same.

My reply is to Tony (post below me) but it is not lining up. Since when did history become a conspiracy theory? Did Anne Frank wear a tin foil hat?

We'll I guess we know who will be taking the free train ride to the unknown first.

yes, the criminals are highly trained in safety courses. And since it is not 1776, this will never happen, because in 1939, it didn't happen (?). In fact it isn't happening right now anywhere in the world is it? There is no genocide. No where. Not in this civilized society. Anyone who thinks such things is a nutcase. Because it is 2013. The NDAA was signed in 2012. It will never happen. Drones are NOT being used to gather evidence against American Citizens in 2013. If you believe that I have a tinfoil hat to sell you. The beauty of all this? It will happen. But it will happen to those who said it couldn't. The rest of us have guns and over the last month? More than ever before.
