Would you support a ban on handguns?

Because it is my right.

We have the right and responsibility to self protection.

First, it is a violation of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. The Supreme Court ruled "that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm (unconnected to service in a militia) and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home."
Second, it would make the ability for a law-abiding citizen to protect themselves impossible and unfairly unbalanced against those who will violated the ban anyway; this is a DIRECT violation of the Second Amendment. Under a ban, law abiding citizens wouldn't be able to have or carry handguns, giving up the right to protect themselves; whereas criminals with no respect for the law will carry them and use them regardless, making it more dangerous to those citizens abiding by the law, which is most people. It is always those few who abuse privileges that incite punishment for the many who do not.
