I’ve had a gun since I was 12 yrs old but enough is enough. I’m a hunter and a sportsman but No body needs these weapons.

While many of Kutcher’s followers supported his sentiments, a number of others fired back in response.

laws only work when people follow them. There is a law against murder and that didn’t stop him so why would more gun laws?

Why not? Our enemies have them. Why can’t we?

I don’t agree. You will take the guns and protection of law abiding citizens. Criminals will still have them, and know others are unarmed!
