"Shouldn't something be done?" Yes, Mr Beyer something has finally been done. After all this time it is illegal to kill someone. Can you believe it. Finally.

"…free unfettered access to guns…" You obviously have not tried to purchase a gun. If you want a rifle or shotgun, you must pass an "instant" background check, which takes 15 - 30 minutes. If you want a handgun, the application process takes 6 months to validate your constitutional right in the form of a permit and then another 3 or 4 days from the time of purchasing the handgun to actually possessing it.

I am the NRA and I did not ask for nor approve of these so-called loopholes!

Taking guns away from us honest citizens would have made no difference in the shooting that we are getting blamed for!!!

Did you notice that in all cases the victims where unarmed per YOUR demands?

Who wrote the headline for this letter? It turns the writer's point completely upside down.

Mr. Beyer you did not research very well because only 2 of those mentally ill killers were legal gun owners and one of them was government trained. Regulator i'm not sure if you are trying to be funny but you are coming off sounding like bit of an idiot.

After reading Mr. Beyers comments I came to the conclusion that he has been living in a closet and has just walked out into six lanes of traffic. His comments make no sense, are not factual and quite simply the man does not have a clue as to what is going on around him. I am just pointing out the stupidity.

I'm surprised they get away with asking for photo ID to buy a gun at a dealer. That's racist.

Pre 1935...you could walk into a cigar store and buy a silencer for your pistol so plinking didn't bother your neighbors. You could also purchase a submachunegun. It was the worst economic time in our History. Poor was really poor...soup lines, actual starvation. We didn't have the crime we have today. Cops didn't go to schools, kids didn't have electronic baby sitters. What happened?

Nearly all gangsters are known to the police. They are protected by people like the author. I say give the cops a week off, and we can reverse the drive by shooting by being the shooters. Take 'em all out. Nobody sees anything, knows anything. Give a taste of their own medicine.

I own a gun, and I don't plan on killing anyone. The fact is guns are here to stay, and making it more difficult to get one really isn't going to stop someone. The reason being, there are so many guns on the streets for sale for cash from folks that don't ask question, anyone can get one. You cannot make laws to make people be responsible, or use common sense. My question is this... how many more letters about guns are we going to have to read?

Mass shooters don't expect to survive so they don't care who else is armed. The Ft Hood shooter was at an Army base. Plenty of guns there. Didn't do a bit of good.

Guns at Ft Hood are not available. They are locked up. Apparently our government not only doesn’t trust citizens with guns, they don’t even trust their own military with guns!

Mr Beyer should take a walk down E 2nd Street, N Main Street, or Barrows Street and wonder who has purchased there guns legally. Then, Mr Beyer should walk down Front Street or Towner Street and wonder who purchased there guns legally. Which neighborhoods would you feel safe in? The legally, proper avenue obtained gun owning neighborhoods? Obviously, the economics in those neighborhoods are different, but for this example, it creates a different level of 'safe' feeling to a 'common' citizen. Would your 'life' feel more free to live in one neighborhood or the other?
