Guns dont kill people, people kill people. You can kill someone with just about anything. Saying that if there were lmore gun restrictions, less people would get killed is ignorant of the facts. Look at chicago, the murders committed with handguns is about 40% higher than it was before the ban on handguns. They don't allow handgun ownership but the criminals get them and use them anyway. making it illegal will not stop a criminal from purchasing a firearm, so why should a law abiding citizen not be allowed to own one for self defense?

BUT most cars are used for peaceful purposes, handguns are used to kill people.
Most handguns are also used for peaceful purposes. I know lots of people who one them and none of them have ever shot at anyone with them. In fact they are seldom used to kill anything period. Saying that these acts are random acts of violence is dumb because the people who commit these crimes are 9/10 times prior offenders of the law. Felons cant buy guns legally but the thing is that they will get a hold of them no matter what, so why should it be wrong for someone who isnt a criminal to own a gun to protect themselves. And you call us nuts but really your the one who has the backwards mentality and lack of perception on the situation. People die all the time with out guns involved. In fact people die in simple fist fights all the time; PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE, NOT GUNS. I can remember a couple of times in my life where I was in life threatening danger and a gun has saved my life from death. People are crazy and you should be able to defend yourself. Keep in mind that most people who own guns use them responsibly and there is a very small percentage who don't. When someone pulls a knife on you and puts it to your throat and your friend is there legally carrying a gun and he saved your life with it you will understand.
