That's why handguns will likely have to be banned as well as assault rifles and other semi-automatic weapons.
Since we can't ban people, the only option left is to ban their weapons of choice.
Already found unconstitutional in DC and Chicago...ain't gonna happen Sparky.

No, the plan is to eliminate the most dangerous & lethal weapons, and hammer those who use guns in crimes or sell guns to those who use them in crimes.
Speaking of "hammer"...

Do you know that more people are murdered with blunt objects than with rifles...?...so tell me again about eliminating "the most dangerous & lethal weapons"...why "target" the so called "assault rifle" when blunt objects are used to murder more people...?

Washington, DC
* In 1976, the Washington, D.C. City Council passed a law generally prohibiting residents from possessing handguns and requiring that all firearms in private homes be (1) kept unloaded and (2) rendered temporally inoperable via disassembly or installation of a trigger lock. The law became operative on Sept. 24, 1976.[33][34]
* On June 26, 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling, struck down this law as unconstitutional.[35]
[36]
* During the years in which the D.C. handgun ban and trigger lock law was in effect, the Washington, D.C. murder rate averaged 73% HIGHER than it was at the outset of the law, while the U.S. murder rate averaged 11% LOWER.[37]

United States Crime Rates 1960 - 2011 in relation to Gun Control Laws/NICS Background checks
http://gunshowonthenet.blogspot.com/2013/04/u...
Sources: Population Figures; Disaster Center:
http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.h...
NICS Figures; FBI:
http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/nics
(Important note: The number of background checks does not equate to the number of firearms sold. As multiple guns; both Long Guns, and Hand Guns, can be purchased during a NICS background check).
The statistics from the chart were gathered from the Disaster Center referenced above. To which were added the last two columns on the right. Which contain information concerning U.S. gun law enactment periods. As well as crime rate variances, and finally; N.I.C.S.,(National Instant Criminal Background Check), numbers,
As it is plain to see, crime rates started a dramatic rise after the 1968 Gun Control Act. During the years 1981-84 crime rates either leveled out or dropped. From 1985-91 the overall crime rate again rose sharply. During the year 1992 the crime rates again leveled. While in 1993 most crime rates had fallen. Which fails to explain the justification for the Unconstitutional “Brady Bill”.
The 'Gun Control' laws that have been unconstitutionally passed have also had an effect on Firearm sales in the United States. According to National Shooting Sports Foundation,(NSSF), and FBI NICS records. Firearms sales have increased by 54.1% between 2002-2011*. Thus making the claim by John Lott in his book; “More Guns, Less Crime”, a statistical FACT.
'Gun Control laws' also seem to be providing an impetus for increased firearms sales. Which is hardly what the 'gun control' crowd desired, I'm sure. That is of course, unless they are stock holders in firearms related businesses....

Which is exactly why I own stock in Smith & Wesson and Ruger.

I've made over 600% gain since Obama was elected in '08!

Thank you all you gun-nutters!!

So that also means 600% in gun owners. Hmm looks like a vast majority growing. Anti gun idiots on the down fall. Obama=best gun salesman ever.

No, it means the company's stock is worth 600% more than it was in '08.

The majority of guns bought over that time were purchased by those who already own guns.

But that's why I keep pushing for gun control legislation- it drives up the price of the stock and I make money!

Same reason I support restrictions on oil & gas companies- it drives up the price of the stock and I make money!

Not quite dolt, Tray is correct. You freaks didn't learn from the Klintoon gun ban. So now your 'master' obummer is making the same exact mistake. Hopefully this time you freaks will be pushed out for much longer than just 8 years.
Right, just like Romney won in 2012......

Actually it DID accomplish something- it made me a bunch of money off my gun stocks!

You see, us "useful idiots" know how to play both side off each other to our financial benefit!!
