If you support a ban on handguns(or any other guns), you support the violation of peoples constitutional right.

The second amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows for an armed citizenry for several purposes. By allowing the citizens to maintain arms the citzens are given secure footing in the defense of themselves, their families and properties not just from the actions of criminals but should the need ever arise from the actions of our own government. Remember the lands now comprising the United States of America was once a colony of England and the Crown. It was due to British Governmental excesses that an atmosphere for rebelion was promoted. Perhaps our current crop of corrupt politicians have forgotten why we are allowed to maintain lawful arms.

Newburgh is a college town and gunshots are continuously heard by the students. Lives are in danger.
