Assalamu alaikum/Peace be upon you,

Another bad news. 

27 People Dead, Mostly Children, at Connecticut Elementary School Shooting

http://gma.yahoo.com/breaking-conn-school-district-locked-down-shooting-report-151955384--abc-news-topstories.html

Perhaps we might need to discus gun control more seriously. We limit country to have a lethal weapon (WMD), why we are not do the same to people. Screening ... it doesn't work, I am, can be a very good person today, but  no guaranty tomorrow I am not crazy.

In my home country there, the life is much more difficult, so there are much more angry/frustrated people, but because they don't have access to lethal weapon, they only have knife, so something like this never happen there. May be just a few people die caused by them, they already stopped by other people, not even need police/SWAT to stop them.
 
Again GUN CONTROL IS THE SOLUTION.

Assalamu alaikum.

It is indeed unfortunate! However it could never have been caused by Islamists! Muhammad Rasulullah disallowed the manufacture of arms.

My response;

"we will have to take meaningful action..." - Pres. Obama, 12/14/2012

Do people not see that we need a return to God as the guiding factor in our society, and that is the only 'meaningful action' that will make a difference?

We need leaders who will put forth a return to faith and stop putting faith in our own abilities as humans.

Are you really suggesting that a lack of faith in God created this horror?
Is this based on information or just another knee jerk.

Are you calling for a theocracy? And who's faith should guide our leaders?  Indeed a slippery slope in a democracy. Also, I'm sure some would argue that your own ability as a human, and your "faith" they are one in the same.

It means that I see that evil is widely abroad in the world and there is only one thing that can truly combat evil.

Our leaders simply need to point us all to something higher than ourselves.. to something higher than themselves. 

Change must come from the people themselves and leaders need to encourage change.    When society goes off course, and positive change is needed, the top needs to use its influence, not power, to guide the people towards change.  Change must be encouraged.  No amount of making laws will change a society if the people are not changed.  Look at Syria trying to force its will.  The people want a change.
