    What I want from gun owners


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Yasij of Portland, Maine, wants gun owners to make a promise before they purchase a firearm. She wants them to promise not to kill. 'I want to hear that you promise to avoid killing unless you feel that your life or other lives are in danger,' she said. 'When someone owns a weapon, they should promise to protect and defend life.' Yasij, an animal trainer, does not own any guns.

    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    Gun owners have a right, and I have a right to ask them to promise not to shoot us. Before you buy a gun, you should be required to make a promise, and if you can't make this promise, you shouldn't have a gun
