That's ridiculous. The recent shootings are going to force Obamas gun ban bill down the throats of congress. Every time their's a shooting more and more people want to ban guns. I'm just afraid that's what the government wants. With the Aurora, Empire state building, and trayvon Martin shooting they don't have much of a choice. The government is getting put ( or putting themselves) in a corner were they don't have much choice.

Because the gun control laws in New York and Chicago are working so well, it would make perfect sense to extend them to other places! Unfortunately I see them trying to push the agenda in the future as well..

Must be those damn rednecks again. They always shoot people for crack money in the streets, while strollers stroll and the elderly shuffle

My guess is that the government will eventually realize that gun control will make no difference. One of the things citizens pay them to do is protection. Gun control is not working, what are the "protectors" going to do now?

Maybe we just need a deep thinker... Someone that can really fly outside of that proverbial box.

Violent street gangs should be outlawed. They're as bad as organized crime. The police and homicide units can't keep up with all the shootings.

It's a slippery slop. What consititutes a "gang"? In many counties across America (mostly urban) groups of 5 or more males aren't allowed to be together past dark or your considered a "gang".

Let's just raise our children right... Not pass new laws.

Some serious raiding of houses to remove every gun from the premises. Could be a stretch... but, who knows how far this government will take it

They lack the man-power and more importantly that would cause an immediate rebellion among the nations populace, in my opinion. Moreover that's not really any different, only more of the same to the extreme.

I think the people are out of ideas. I think the government is out of ideas.

I don't think its strange at all. The people in charge of this government are thinking way ahead and has had many years to re-think and perfect whatever they choose to do. I convinced that their's no coincidence. It's just a brilliant scheme. One step closer to a World government.

I think the people in the US government and governments around the world are not any smarter than their citizens. While I'm quite sure they'd like people to think they know what they're doing, they don't. We're all just flying by the seat of our pants. The human race did not come with an instruction manual.

Arm the civilians.

You don't see this kind of crap happening in Texas, not to this extent. Gang bangers even think twice before pulling a gun here. Chances are the person they try to assault is more heavily armed. ..and that's a fact Jack.

I personally don't think the government revealed their true intentions yet. Also you can't run out of ideas if theirs still pieces to move and our government don't has more pawns then expected.

Sure sure, I'd like to see what this government can come up with. If they're so smart then why are anti-depressants such a big seller? If they're so smart then why do they lack the ability to unify the country?

I think their so much smarter that they have to give us hints for them to enjoy themselves. or maybe they just make mistakes. Anyways a group of the worlds best problem solvers, public speakers, strategist, scientist, e.t.c that aren't affiliated to any government should join and solve this problem.

I think the worlds best problem solvers are human beings. I think we are all human beings. I think that many citizens demand inhuman perfection from their employees and I think it weighs on their employees. I think their employees need not bear the weight of the world, need not try to be something they are not. They are left with lies, the public demands what the public cannot have so the government gives it to them, but in word only. They cannot meet the demands of their employers, their employers make impossible demands.

You're thinking to local. Its not about the country anymore it's about world control. Anyone with reasoning skills knows that this world can never hope for peace until their is a one world government. Increased selling of anti-depressants would be in their favor wouldn't it
