Gun control

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed?

Candidate 1- Barack Obama

"We lose the same number of young people to guns every day and a half as we did at Columbine, and every four days as we did at Virginia Tech.Every single day, America is robbed of more futures. It has awful consequences for our society. And as a society, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to put a stop to it." 

Candidate 2-Mitt Romney

"I believe we need to focus on enforcing our current laws rather than creating new laws that burden lawful gun owners. I believe in safe and responsible gun ownership and that anyone who exercises the right to keep and bear arms must do so lawfully and properly. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all federal approach to gun ownership because people keep and use firearms for different reasons. Law-abiding citizens have a right to protect their homes and their families and as President, I will vigorously defend that right."
