Nope. Nice try.
You stated "Also a bit insane at times which happens to all humans at some point in their life because it's part of the human emotional(can't be proven wrong)."

You have to prove that it's ALWAYS in the PAPER that ALL humans are effected. When was YOUR name in the paper for it?

You don't know how to read or listen to news reports of SANE people that have "The Right"(the 2nd amendment) to buy & possess a gun, and then end up having some kind of out-of-control anger/temper shooting their family or co-workers?
You don't know how to read or listen to news reports of SANE people that buy automobiles and in a fit if road rage kill innocent people on the highways? Or purchase knives? Or use explosives?
Or are you only mad about deaths due to firearms?

Please check out some news..USAToday, Yahoo News, any kind of news & you'll see....Or will you read the news reports & deny that these reports are FALSE.
Sure do read them. Amazing how many of them are stories about idiots that are killed while engaging in criminal activity. What does that have to do with law abiding citizens exercising their 2nd Amendment rights?

BTW..There's no "legal guns"?...so guns are Illegal? Guns being sold in stores are either legal or illegal..There's no in between.
What else you got?
I got that you don't know squat about the law. Let me try to get you up to speed. I'll even type R E A L S L O W.

Guns can neither be "legal" nor "illegal" in a court of law. After all, when a criume involving a firearms is committed, is the gun ever prosecuted? No. Why? Because it has no legal standing in a court of law.
What confuses you is that it's the POSSESSION of that gun that can be "legal" or "illegal".
I could take a .38 revolver and place it in your hand and unless you're a felon, you have "legal" possession of that gun.
I could then take that gun and hand it to some hood rat with a rap sheet longer than your car and with some violent felonies, it would be an "illegal possession" of that very same gun.
Same gun, different circumstances. That help?

True. Shouldn't the focus be on the person and not the object?

Ban on handguns would only remove protection from citizens who obeys the laws. The criminals would still be armed.

What is the implication of "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State" on the keeping and bearing arms?

----------
Defination of Arms:
arms
n 1: weapons considered collectively [syn: weaponry, implements
of war, weapons system, munition]

Does the second amendment include 'arms' other than guns?

The second amendment is not a absolute, there are some restrictions based on supreme court rulings -- read and be enlightened.

Amendment II
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Prior to the Supreme Court's 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller,1 the courts had yet to definitively state what right the Second Amendment protected. The opposing theories, perhaps oversimplified, were (1) an "individual rights" approach, whereby the Amendment protected individuals' rights to firearm ownership, possession, and transportation; and (2) a "states' rights" approach, under which the Amendment only protected the right to keep and bear arms in connection with organized state militia units. Moreover, it was generally believed that the Amendment was only a bar to federal action, not to state or municipal restraints.

However, the Supreme Court has now definitively held that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that weapon for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Moreover, this right applies not just to the federal government, but to states and municipalities as well.
In Heller, the Court held that (1) the District of Columbia's total ban on handgun possession in the home amounted to a prohibition on an entire class of "arms" that Americans overwhelmingly chose for the lawful purpose of self-defense, and thus violated the Second Amendment; and (2) the District's requirement that any lawful firearm in the home be disassembled or bound by a trigger lock also violated the Second Amendment, because the law made it impossible for citizens to use arms for the core lawful purpose of self-defense.
