if you ban handguns then all the illegal guns will fall into the hands of people who are not planning to do such nice things with them, such as committ murder, rob homes, perform car-jackings, and kill for hatred of other groups. me i am permitted to carry in 31 of the lower 48 states and i would like the chance to protect myself, my friends, and my family should the ever be put in a situation of mortal danger i could prevent.

Via exhaustive historical research and atute analysis, economist John Lott has proven conclusively that the presence of guns in a society reduces the crime rate, and that the confisgation of guns invariably leads to greatly elevated crime rates. The Founding Fathers were right, but even modern proof is insufficient to demonstrate that to the rabid gun contrl cabal.

Every year, people in the United States use guns to defend themselves against criminals an estimated 2,500,000 times – more than 6,500 people a day, or once every 13 seconds.That comes from the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology.
Without guns, what would we do?

Banning handguns does not stop crime. Criminals don't obey the law and they won't obey a ban. It just leaves the law abiding unarmed.

Foolish to ban handguns or any personal protection weapons.

The only ban neded is for a person committing a crime with a gun in their possession.Make it automatic prison time,no plea bargain..First time,5 years,second time ,10 years. Commit a crime with a gun on parole,20 years. If the gun was stolen, double time. It's just hard to get some peoples attention without putting them away to think.

Criminals would not obey, law abiders would be more vulnerable. Additionally, if a potential victim did use gun for defense, he would have to face the law and then possible civil action by either the perpetrator or his estate due to his 'then" criminal action.

Statistics for crimes committed with guns exclude those incidents in which the potential victim used a gun to thwart the attacker. No gun crime is recorded. This biases the statistics such that guns themselves seem to be responsible for the act. Weapons are morally neutral, but tyrants will not allow his servants to use them.

A world without guns just means the strong can prey on the weak, the pack can take down the alone, and the young can abuse the elders.

What part of "shall not be infringed" do people not understand? Banning guns NEVER works. The criminals would still have them. All banning does is create victims because when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.

I am for the security of my family and country. The government can't protect the while enabling our freedom. I would rather have citizens allowed to carry guns than be a gunless society and military/police at every corner to "protect and serve"

Think about it - It is already against the law to use a handgun in a crime. Does anyone think another law preventing law-abiding citizens from owning one will change a thing? CRIMINALS DON'T RESPECT THE LAWS WE ALREADY HAVE.

The right to bear arms is the single most important thing that separates us from communism.

guns are out of control. most people with handguns will get hurt with their own gun. but banning handguns will not get illegal guns off the street.

Law abiding citizens should ALWAYS have the right to bear arms and protect themselves. Criminals will always find a way to have a gun..just like they find ways to get drugs that are illegal. If you take all the guns away from law abiding americans then guess who will still find a way to get guns? criminals

Our founding fathers thought it was important enough to enable us this right. Through history this right has helped keep law abiding citizens safe and our country safe. If this right was banned, who would it be banned for? Law abiding citizens of course, because criminals will still be able to have and get guns. Then that would give criminals power over the law abiding citizens with no guns. Our country can't keep tabs on people with visas who come into our country and over extend their stay. Also, they Can't keep our borders closed and prevent drugs and illegals from coming into this country. So it goes to reason that they will not be able to keep guns from coming over the border also.
