As long as a police needs to carry a hand gun then I need to carry 1. They carry a handgun to protect thenself. Police come after the law is broke. I need to protect myself when the law is being broke.

Are you crazy ? Why would a sane rational person give govt (our worst enemy) the power to regulate firearms. The 2nd amendment prohibits govt from regulating guns. We need guns to be able to kill police or soldiers if the need ever arises.

Make govt your servant, not your master.

If criminals (politicians, police, and thiefs) have handguns then I need a handgun.

Ban police and then arm everyone and crime rates will plummet to record lows.

The "bad guys" have zero problem getting a gun...we who follow the legal process should be penalized?! No thanks! The only ppl in favor of the ban...would be criminals!(makes their "job" easier)

though I never hope to need one I should be able to protect my family as a constitutional right. Also, our forefathers put that in the constitution as a check and balance on the government.

Circumstances dictate what one musat have
to defend themselves. Why would want to make criminals out of the millions of
Americans who own them but violate no
present laws and will newtolerate no new
ones.

If the government will collect all the handguns from all criminals and those who use them for harm, then I will think about giving up one of mine keeping one in reserve for the lowlife thief and robber who held out. I agree my answer is just about as stupid as the question!

Disarming the working class and leaving only the enforcement class(police) with handguns would empower the bourgeoisie and could be a step towards fascism.

Any good socialist will say NO to bans on handguns!
