 I almost always vote democrat. This antigun platform is hurting our party. I'm afraid we will suffer greatly in the next elections because of your stance on this issue. I will likely vote 3rd party because of the unconstitutional way this issue is begin handled by the democratic party at the state and national levels.

This is a complex issue that doesn't have an easy answer, but this is how you stop mass shootings and gun violence without trampling on the writes of our citizens:

1. Repeal so called "gun free zones" so that law abiding citizens who wish to defend themselves from criminals or the mentally ill can do so legally. All of the mass shooting take place in "gun free zones" because they know that we will not be able to defend ourselves.

2. Make concealed carry shall issue so that law abiding citizens are not prohibited to do so arbitrarily in places like NYC and thus left unable to defend themselves adequately from criminals who do not obey gun laws.

3. The vast majority of gun violence is drug related gang violence. End the failed war on drugs. Prohibition does not work, whether it's alcohol, drugs, or guns. And guns are our right. You are not upholding the constitution of the US or NY by suggesting that we ban types of guns in common use based on cosmetic features.
