“Make it like a drivers license something that you have to renew and background checks and everybody who uses them safely will still be able to have their guns but you would have to be passing background checks."

"I don't think they need weapons that they can shoot multiple times per second."

"I think people are worried about the wrong issue, people are worried about illegal immigrants coming into the country but most of our shootings are from our own citizens. I don’t think that is okay.”

"More public resources for mental health."

"I understand people wanting guns for home safety, and I have nothing against that. Many of my friends are shooters and are gun enthusiast but they don’t have the automatics they don’t need those. The other part is that I didn’t put on here is mental health. Yes, we have mental health issues and so do other countries but they don’t have the mass shootings we have because they don’t have all the guns.”

"Law-abiding citizens are going to give up their guns- if it becomes illegal and that would not be a good thing. And people who are not (law-abiding) are going to get guns, so before guns are sold they should know who they are selling guns to.”

" Keep the focus on those around you and if something doesn't seem right- try to intervene."
"I think people should all carry guns. All teachers should be armed."

“If we publish the event it gives them (shooters) what they want. I’m not saying not to say it, we have to learn from the past. We do have to keep records of these events, but for the future minimize the amount of publicity they get.”
