The fewer people owning handguns means less opportunity to be injured or killed by guns!

It's against the second amendment and considering the fact that they can be obtained illegally anyways, it would be putting law-abiding citizens at a disadvantage to criminals when it comes to defending their homes and families. Banning handguns is a stupid idea among stupid ideas.

It also means more opportunity for rapists to be successful. It means more innocent people not able to defend themselves. It means more deaths and injuries at the hands of people who prey on those that are defenseless.
And it's obviously what Larry Ziemba wants to see.
Law rhetoric is faulty

Larry Ziemba, your attack is ad homenim. Thus implying that your views create the self fulfilling prophecy of the "nagative" you seek out to marginalize and negate. It's also a hasty generalization. Just because A happened and then B DOESNT mean C is the outcome.

But I digress. Great Britain imposed it nation wide ban on handgun sales and hand guns. Their VIOLENT crime skyrocketed 400% You're so blind to your own rhetoric and unlikable ilk that the very words you used to describe your vitriol...are the very words that criminals pine to read through their disregard for the rights' and the property of others.

Keep your phone near because when youre back door is being kicked in by someone of I'll repute and low socioeconomic status from say; Willard Street, to collect your priviledged "stuffs"...youll need the always trusty and expedient Bond County Sherrifs at your aid. Besides, we all know their efficiency and time management skills are bar none and set the standard for other departments through their rapid response times.

Good luck with that.

It is immoral to witthold guns from people who are perfectly qualified to own them. Plus, banning them would take away one's self-defense, making it a certain death in a life-or-death situation when an attacker can kill you.
