And yet you have no evidence to support your assertion. Why is that?

European countries ban them and look at their homicide rate compared to ours.
Look what happened to their violent crime rate after the ban....it went up. When those countries have the same socioeconomic/demographic composites that the US does, we'll look at the data. In the mean time, you're comparing apples and windhield wipers.

My 12-year-old cousin was accidentally shot by the gun his father kept locked up for protection. He and his 11-year-old friend found the key and, not thinking it was loaded (because 11 and 12-year-olds don't), the 11-year-old pulled the trigger. My cousin is dead, and his friend's life is ruined. He's been in therapy for 8 years.
The father is negligent for not teaching the son about gun safety and for leaving the key where it could br found. I'm sorry for your loss.

what this question is really asking is "Do you support banning handgun ownership by law abiding citizens?" Violent criminals say yes.
