You have got to be joking!!

Do Americans really need a handgun as a state symbol, with all the violence and deaths caused by these misused firearms.

You did know that many countries in the world use the AK-47, as a symbol. The AK-47 is shown on many country Flags. As for the 1911 Model, you will need to know more about its rich History to understand why. Americans here are very big on History which is not so big in New Zealand. Also the handgun is not the problem, its the nut holding the grips. Most American Gun owners are safe and reasonable with all house hold weapons.

One thing you should understand, there are still some parts of the USA and Canada, you would be a lunatic not to have a weapon and some parts required carrying a handgun for protection from the animals. Even in the State of California people are killed by wildlife.
