I don't need a piece of paper to tell me I can bare arms. As a human being I have the right to protect myself and those I care for from harm. Currently the best tools available for that job are my wits, my knife, and my handgun.

Handguns exist. There is no getting around it. Banning them will only ensure that the law abiding are the ones unarmed.

I can accept (but not fully support) the right to bear arms. Our forefather had in mind the right to defend oneself against unjust government (so what? Should an individual be allowed to possess nuclear weapons? After all that’s the only way to even the playing field). Then there are those who argue that hunting it the purpose. Great! Please tell me when a hand gun was the preferred method of killing a deer, goose, or what ever? Okay, then there’s the argument…it’s all about self-defense? A shotgun will do just as good a job. Let’s face it: hand guns have but one purpose...to kill man. If someone out there can convince me otherwise I’d be interested in hearing you views.

I am a cop and let me tell you one thing, it takes time for me to get to a call. So the time it takes me to get to your home you are on your own. If you don't want to own a handgun or any guns that is fine, that is your right. Now I own many, many guns and that is my right. I have hunted deer with a handgun, a 44 mag. People like you make me sick. Right to bear arms is a fundamental right but since you chose not to exercise that right you think you have the right to tell people how they should exercise it. Also, you are overreaching when comparing nukes to a handgun. Such a ridiculous comparison shows how dumb you really are.

A gun ban would not help the problem (e.g., UK). Enforce current laws, and make laws consistent US wide.

England's 1997 handgun ban did absolutely no good.

I support the right to own firearms as long as you are legally capable

I own two a .44 mag and a old Winchester shotgun (i have never fired the shotgun)

I'm a Democrat but I do support the 2nd amendment and believe it should be left alone.

I remember years ago going out on Smokey Hill road and just obliterating anything out there (Which wasn't much back then) and yes it is fun.

Instead of banning guns, they should simply kill people who commit crimes with guns. That seems pretty straight forward to me.
Every time I've handled a weapon has been for target practice in a controlled environment or in the line of duty.
People who can't handle the responsibility shouldn't be able to ruin it for the rest of us. Break the law with a firearm - die. It's that simple. That might get the message across.
lol, That is an interesting approach and it's pretty straight forward, and there is a justifiable point within your message

I have been reading in some places on the internet stories about dhs stockpiling about 1.2 billion rounds of various ammo incl. half bilion hollow point bullets etc..? why is nobody questioning why so much money is being invested in bullets by the gov. but at the same time they seem like they cannot get the public to give up their guns quickly enuff? I find all this troubling. I want a gun.
