People kill people!
They've been doing so since time immemorial.
Even in places where guns have been outlawed.

Often, when guns are outlawed, the violence gets even worse.
Criminals KNOW that their victims have been disarmed.
And so does the government.
In fact, the WORST atrocities have been against the unarmed.

You are not very well informed..Hand guns were made for self defense...Cars kill more people..Alcohol kills more people..Prescription drugs kill more people..drunk people in cars kill more people than hand guns..And dummass, pistol shooting IS an Olympic event and does not dictate which brand of handgun you use..Hand guns are just as much of a sporting gun as any other...Those of us who grew up in the west grew up with guns as sporting equipment and people from the east grew up with guns as weapons..Do you have any Idea of the amount of shooting ranges in Colorado,Arizona, Nevada, new mexico etc.....You people against guns have probably caused more deaths with your stupidity than hand guns..Have you ever heard of the WORLD SHOOTING CHAMPIONSHIPS..What do you suppose that is ? could that be a sporting event involving people from all over the world getting together to target shoot ????? Its you little piece of shit cowards that say "co exist" "cant we all just get along"....I got news for you ..We tried that ,,and some of you decided to take from others rather than work for it..Some of your kids decided that breaking into houses would be easier than working..Some of you decided that crime is easier when the public is disarmed..Some of you decided that letting illegals work for you would be better than paying Americans for the same job and now we are infested with criminals..It was your choice and now we are forced to arm ourselves and now our sporting equipment has multiple uses..Illegals broke into my grandfathers home several times in Arizona before he died..They always hit when he wasnt home...Lucky for them..He was a world class shooter and a big part of the founding of many of the shooting ranges in Arizona..Also was part of the world shooting championships..Many old veterans who made this country free for you are involved in competitive shooting..Look into it..Learn more about it..If you have never shot a gun ,,then you should try it..Most people cant put it down..Its a lot of fun and everyone in the family can equally enjoy it...It brings families together...You dont have to be a hunter...Try saying to your kid "hey wanna go shooting" see what they say...I have no desire to kill anything...But I love to shoot......And Glock is just a brand ,,like Smith And Wesson..Nothing special..Nothing to be afraid of..And you can get "hop up kits" and extended clips for any gun..No big deal..

Using my pistol as opposed to my shotgun for self defense means I might not have to get out the carpet cleaner after someone breaks in my house.

No guns around 10 miles to Schools/Colleges/Universities
Realistically,,, That would only work if schools had an armed guard and metal detectors at every door.. And thoroughly searched each student...And guards within that ten mile perimeter...Not to keep guns out of the schools but to protect the now unarmed people from the people who who will commit crimes because of the now wide range of opportunity you now gave the criminals ..If you can figure out how to do that without removing any shred of freedom or security from law abiding Americans then you might have some thing..but that would also require moving all schools within that ten mile range of residential areas to outside that ten mile range..[and what about business that prefer to have self protection ? Should schools be ten miles from those too?]..Because people keep their guns in their homes and businesses ya know...Trying to Disarm the public wont work..If someone lunatic wants to take out a bunch of students they could just as easily use a car and have the same results and already be in the getaway car..In fact people do use cars for assaults and murder and I dont hear any talk about banning cars..

um you cannot be more wrong. I have fired around 10 thousand rounds through my handgun and you know what, the strangest thing happened, it DIDNT kill anyone, not even once. A handgun is a tool, for 1.self defence 2.sporting. Cars kill more people in a year than handguns, why arent you for taking cars away from people, falling down stairs kills people, why arent you for banning stairs, kitchen knives injure far more people each year than guns are you for banning them? Baseball bats can kill someone do you want to ban them aswell? or how about hands or feet they injure more people every year than guns.

IN Chicago a ban on gun sales was passed. That lasted 7 years, when the gun related deaths almost doubled thay repealed the law.

That's exactly what criminals want! They're so easy to obtain on the black market, this would just take away citizen's rights to defend themselves.
